Trader Joe’s remains a favorite grocery store for so many people around the country. Who can argue with inexpensive, high-quality food and specialty items made exclusively for their store – cookie butter, anyone? The chain is always producing new frozen meals and entrees that you can enjoy whenever you want, as well as new coffees, drinks, and other kinds of products. There are regularly new things to try, so here are five recently released products that we’re excited to pick up the next time we shop at Trader Joe’s.
1. Chipotle Vegetable Quesadillas
These meat-free, vegetable-stuffed quesadillas are full of flavor and will go well with your favorite salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. The inside of the quesadillas is made up of sweet corn, black beans, onions, and dried jalapeño, all in a savory sauce – the perfect way to solve a Tex-Mex craving!
2. Gluten-Free Mac & Cheese
The same four-cheese flavor you love in Trader Joe’s mac and cheese, but without the gluten! The gluten-free mac & cheese is made with rotini noodles that are composed of quinoa, lentil, and rice flour. This is mouthwatering! If you want to upgrade the meal, just top it with your favorite mac and cheese additions, like bacon crumbles or hot sauce, and you are good to go.
3. New Cake Flavors
If you have a sweet tooth and cannot resist a good cake, Trader Joe’s has two new flavors that make the perfect finale to any meal. The store now offers Chantilly Cream Vanilla Bean and Dark Chocolate Ganache mini sheet cakes that you should definitely bring home for yourself or your next dinner party.
4. Uncured Ham & Swiss Cheese Flaky Croissant Dough Squares
Brunch at home, anyone? With this item, you won’t need to go out to have the perfect mid-morning weekend fare. These decadent croissant squares have ham and swiss cheese that melt together when you bake them, and are sure to be the ultimate pairing with your mimosa.
5. Neapolitan Joe-Joe’s
These can be something of a controversy for hardcore Trader Joe’s shoppers versus those who grew up strictly on Oreo’s. It’s too close to call on which is a better cookie! Regardless, Trader Joe’s just released a new flavor of Joe-Joe’s in a classic combination you know and love: Neapolitan! Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, all in one. Yum!
