This Is Why I Heart Trader Joe’s…

Published in: Daily Photo

There’s always something new and interesting to try!


Like these new noms that I’m very excited about, like this Harvest Blend Herbal Tea…

Or this Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte Mix, om nom nom!

Or this jar of Lavender Salt Scrub from TJ’s toiletries aisle…


Oh, and this bag of Tropical Tendency Trek Mix was full a couple days ago… I totally have no idea what happened to it. It’s a mystery. 🙂

Are you also a TJ’s fan? What are some of your favorite fall and holiday specials? (Dark chocolate stars, perhaps?)

    That harvest blend tea sounded super delish!! I am soooo sad we don’t have trader Joe in Sweden I want me some of that tea…

  2. Heidi says:

    Oh yeah, all of these items have mysteriously made it home with me at one time or another recently. Also, the pumpkin waffles and the pumpkin greek yogurt.

  3. Manja says:

    Oh that Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte Mix makes me want to fly to the US just to go to Trader Joe’s. I love that store and I am so bummed out that we don’t have it over here…gnaah… :'(

    We don’t have that many pumpkin flavored things here in the stores anyway, so I have no choice but to make my own mixes and cakes. I made pumpkin puree on Tuesday and froze it in ziplock bags. I have a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that is calling my name! I love fall <3

    I love the chocolate covered peppermint marshmallows that they have during the holidays!

  5. S says:

    Love the organic, unrefined coconut oil! And their Pound Plus chocolate bars are delish too…..😃

    Trader Joes also carries the best macarons! They sell out quickly, but they rotate flavors – I picked up some pumpkin macarons last week. My faves are the sampler boxes w/pistachio, lavender, etc. !

  11. Michelle says:

    I just got home from there and went pumpkin crazy! I got pumpkin waffles,pumpkin cranberry scone mix, pumpkin macarons, and cookie butter.

  12. Carrie says:

    I love Trader Joes! My husband and I go once a month to stock up. I know I’ll be buying all the pumpkin stuff tomorrow!

  13. Kim says:

    For shame, Marmalade! A cat your size (with no mouth or digestive tract) should *not* be eating all that Trek Mix! The tea looks delish, especially the Chai. It’s a bit depressing that the first ingredient is sugar, though. Then again, it’s not like you’re drinking it 24/7, right? It’s just a seasonal treat! 🙂

  14. Not to be a terrible awful person, but have you discovered TJ’s cookie butter? It’s so delicious. Best of all, it’s only 5g sugar/tbsp. Which is good because the entire jar doesn’t last more than a week in my house! I recommend it with pretzels. Or, you know, a spoon.

  15. Denise S. says:

    Oh that tea looks good! We are supposed to be getting a Trader Joe’s store in Tampa soon. I can’t wait to shop there, thanks to you Karen. Your blog post make me want some of the stuff you buy there, it looks so healthy.

  16. Iris says:

    Mmm… at the chai mix. And yay for it being pumpkin as well. Chai mix is difficult to fine here.
    I wish we had Trader Joe’s in Canada.

  17. That Harvest Blend Tea is crazy awesome!!! We hoarded 3 boxes already lol. Enjoy, Karen, and have a great weekend!

    All of the Trader Joe’s use to be so far from me. I now have one about 15-20 minutes from me. I really need to check this place out. I’ve heard great things about the shampoos and conditioners.

    I love anything chocolatey there. Just discovered these crispy chocolate batons…they’re these little tiny chocolate filled wafers. Also, a manager told me that if you ever want to try anything there, you can bring it to someone who works there and ask them to open it up for you so you can sample it. THEY HAVE TO LET YOU TRY STUFF. Now, of course, I’m going to be camped out there every time I’m headed that way…
