It is no secret The Anti Mom Blog family is a huge fan of Trader Joe’s. Every TJ’s trip, I like to try new products to see if they will make or break our Trader Joe’s haul. There have been some hits and a few misses, but then there are special trips that you just know you are going to hit gold as soon as you walk in the door.
You may have remembered how excited I was when I found Trader Joe’s Mandarin Chicken, well I am even more excited to share with you the top 5 Trader Joe’s items that you need to add to your next haul:
Le Delice de Bourgogne Cheese
For the cheese lovers out there. If you love Brie and Blue Cheese, it is like a combo of both. The soft texture of brie with the tangy hint of blue cheese. You will have to try this one for yourself, but I promise, if you love cheeses, you are going to love this! Our close family friends introduced us to this cheese that pairs perfectly with the Fig & Olive Crackers below. I literally ate the entire wedge & box when first trying it. It’s that good.
Trader Joe’s Fig & Olive Crackers
These are addicting, especially with the Le Delice de Bourgogne Cheese. They have dried figs and olives baked right into the delectably crunchy bite-sized cracker. If you are not a fan of the cheese I suggested, any other cheese would do like, Manchego, cheddar, brie or another soft cheese. But I warn you, you will eat the entire box if you don’t ration. Just sayin’.
Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze
This.is.everything! Every cook should have a bottle of this in your fridge. Make a Caprese Salad perfect with a few drizzles of Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze or spike up your grilled veggies. Best part about this is it is typically half the price of your local grocer’s.
Trader Joe’s Tater Tot Potatoes
My kids love these! & so do I These little mounds of potato are just delicious. Especially when I cook them a little longer than they need. Super crispy and soft in the middle – perfect tots!
Trader Joe’s Kalamata Olive Oil
I can’t take all the credit on this gem. My parents have been using this olive oil and it is just fantastic, especially the price tag for the amount you get! It doesn’t taste like kalamata olives, so all you olive haters don’t fret. It is delicious and has become my favorite olive oil to cook with.
Heading to Trader Joe’s today to pick up some more of these goodies and hopefully find some more to add to my favorites list!
