This is 37: Trader Joe’s Favorites

Hello again my friends! I got to stretch my birthday out a bit longer with an awesome day out shopping with my mom on Monday. We don’t get to do that nearly as often as we’d like (or used to back before kids), so it was a real treat! And then life got SO BUSY again, and here I am and it’s Thursday (but only two days of school left)!!

And I’m continuing to stretch out my birthday this week, with my “This is 37” posts, as I share 37 different fun things again today! And after a great trip to TJ’s last weekend on Mother’s Day, I thought I would share 37 of my favorite things to get from Trader Joe’s today! I keep trying new products everytime we go, but I also have my tried and true favorites that I always have on hand. Here are the best of the best (as far as I’m concerned!), in no particular order:

  1. Everything But the Bagel Seasoning- we use this almost daily
  2. Chicken Fried Rice- Frozen section
  3. Pita Crackers- Our very favorite crackers- we get at least two boxes each trip
  4. Unexpected Cheddar Cheese- Our fave cheese- tastes like a cross between sharp cheddar and parmesan
  5. Umami Mushroom Seasoning- add to veggies, chicken, potatoes, etc, for an enhanced savory flavor. SO GOOD.
  6. 21 Seasoning Salute- another great all-purpose seasoning we use almost daily
  7. Crispy Tilapia- In the frozen section- perfect for fish tacos!
  8. Salmon Burgers- Frozen section
  9. Chili Lime Chicken Burgers- Frozen Section
  10. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups- Just buy them.
  11. Beets- Produce Section. I get at least two bags everytime we go because they are SO CHEAP!!
  12. Toasted Seasme Oil- Same as beets, such a great price and so much cheaper than any other grocery store!
  13. Cauliflower Gnocchi- Frozen section and worth the hype!
  14. Hatch Chili Mac and Cheese- Freezer Section
  15. Southwestern Chopped Salad- my go-to salad lunch!
  16. Yellow Curry Chopped Salad- a close second to the southwestern chopped salad!
  17. Fig & Olive Crisps- a unique and flavorful cracker for…
  18. Blue Cheese Spread and Dip- SO ADDICTIVE!! I think it’s seasonal, though, so grab a few tubs when you see it!
  19. Mandarin Orange Chicken- Freezer section, and also worth the hype! Really, really good for a quick dinner.
  20. Raspberry-Lime Sparkling Water- my favorite sparkling water anywhere!
  21. Green Dragon Hot Sauce- hot but not too hot, and full of flavor
  22. Horseradish Hummus- my favorite hummus flavor- so good with pita chips and cucumber slices!
  23. Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels- just like the peanut butter cups- just get them.
  24. Goat Cheese- any flavor- they’re all good and again, great prices! SO much cheaper than regular grocery stores.
  25. Chicken and Vegetable Gyoza Dumplings- Frozen section- perfect with any of the other frozen Asain meals for quick dinners! The kids love all the dumpling options.
  26. Olive Oil Popcorn- I can eat the whole bag
  27. Roasted Plantain Chips- a good alternative to tortilla chips for guacamole, salsa, or crunch for burrito bowls
  28. Bruschetta Sauce- tomato blend perfect for topping crostini, or for adding to…
  29. Steamed Lentils- for a perfect dip to eat with pita crackers for lunch or a snack!
  30. Carne Asada- preseasoned and so good for tacos or fajitas!
  31. Spinach and Artichoke Dip- Shortcut appetizer or party snack, but this one is SO GOOD!
  32. Frozen Turkey Meatballs- perfect for quick and easy dinners
  33. Cheddar with Caramelized Onions- another great cheese option with a sweet, mild onion taste
  34. Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate- Perfect with a splash of coconut milk and ice!
  35. Frozen Mini Chicken Tacos- I bought these for the kids for a party tray, and were delicious! Perfect size for kids, and for dipping into salsa and guacamole!
  36. Pumpkin Ravioli- I mean, no explanation needed, right?
  37. WINE! Duh! Two Buck Chuck is the standard, of course, but the Simple Wines ($1 per can!) are pretty good too- worth trying out!

I’d love to know your favorites! What do you pick up at Trader Joe’s?
