Friday Favorites: Trader Joe’s

13 Oct

Happy Friday! Fall is in the air this morning around here (the temperature when I went to the gym this morning was 36 degrees!) although it’s supposed to be warm again tomorrow. I’m really excited for fall this year and we will be attending Glastonbury’s Apple Harvest Festival tonight and possibly for a little while tomorrow which will be so much fun!

Today I’m sharing some new-to-me favorites from Trader Joe’s. I have definitely written about Trader Joe’s in the past but it has been quite a while since we have made the trek there to pick up some goodies. Trader Joe’s is great because their prices are phenomenal and they have such unique items, especially of the seasonal variety.

  • Everything but the Bagel Seasoning Blend

I have only used this stuff once so far but it is incredible. It is honestly all of the seasonings I use regularly mixed together. I would recommend putting it on everything, from chicken to fish to a bagel (obvious choice).

  • Frozen organic riced cauliflower

I haven’t tried this yet but I have made riced cauliflower in the past and I’m excited about how much easier this will be. I’m planning on making Skinnytaste’s skillet cauliflower arroz con pollo this coming week and I will be using this for that meal.

  • Fire roasted peppers and onions

Another item that I haven’t tried just yet but I’m looking forward to the convenience factor of these as well. Chopping up veggies for fajitas takes an unnecessary amount of time and this will eliminate that.

  • Cookie Butter ice cream

So I probably just should have let Dan write about this one because it is probably one of his favorite foods in the entire world. I have been trying to limit my sugar intake so I have only stolen a few bites from him but this stuff is incredible and you need to go buy it ASAP.

  • Horseradish hummus

I have been on the search for years for a hummus that I actually enjoy. I think it must be the texture of the chickpeas all mashed up that I just can’t get on board with. I am a HUGE horseradish fan and this stuff is pretty darn good. In all honesty, I’m still not the biggest hummus fan even after trying this flavor but it definitely is improved with the addition of the horseradish.

  • New Zealand sharp cheddar cheese

Trader Joe’s has the most incredible cheese selection with prices that are really not too bad. I tend to pick up a different type of cheese each time we go just to try something new and this sharp cheddar is amazing. I’m not a huge dessert person so I will usually have a slice or two of a good cheese after dinner instead of sweets and this has hit the spot this week.

  • Cold Brew Coffee Chocolate Bar

After I just finished preaching about my anti-dessert beliefs, I’m ending with sweets 🙂 I am a huge cold brew coffee fan so I had to try this. The coffee flavor isn’t super overpowering but it goes so well with the dark chocolate and the caramel filling. I will definitely be stocking up on these!

I hope you guys have a Trader Joe’s nearby so you can try some of these treats too! Have a fun, Fall-filled weekend!

    That cold brew chocolate bar sounds amazing!! I am also such a sucker for a good, sharp cheddar, so that looks delicious, too. Happy Friday!
