The closest Trader Joe’s is more than sixty miles from our home, so I have only visited the store a handful of times. (I’m so desperate for a local store that I started this.) BUT, for several weeks out of the year, my husband works nearby one of the Pennsylvania locations, and he stocks ups. I mean, STOCKS UP. With my limited ability to peruse the available products, these five stand out as among my favorites. By necessity, they are items that travel well.
Spicy Black Bean Dip
This dip is spicy without being overpowering. It’s great with tortilla chips, cheese, or fresh vegetables. And it’s low-calorie, low-fat, and just plain healthy.
Pumpkin Body Butter
This thick, luxurious moisturizer goes on smooth. Its light fragrance conjures the essence of autumn. It’s the perfect fall indulgence.
Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash/Shampoo/Conditioner
I love the slightly minty, fresh scent of these herbal products. They lather well, and their scent is invigorating at the end of long, tiring day.
We ate through our supplies of jams, jelly, and preserves, so I have none left to photograph. While we’ve enjoyed all the jellies and fruit spreads, this was the favorite among our berry fans – and even those not-so-crazy about berries. As I contemplated what to write about this product, I realized I wasn’t entirely sure what a boysenberry is. This LA Times article sheds some light on the history of the scrumptious boysenberry.
Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s
These are a seasonal item, so if you hit a store around Christmastime, STOCK UP! While we try to eschew most processed food around here, these things are yummy. Here’s the scoop on these minty, chocolaty cookies from Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer.
