The 50 Most Popular Trader Joe’s Items of All Time
Sometimes we take our love for Trader Joe’s for granted. (We’ve been in a committed relationship for a pretty long time.) Luckily, in honor of its 50th anniversary, TJ just released a list of its 50 most popular products of all time. Peanut Butter Pretzels? Check. Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza? Check. Spatchcocked Chicken? Check. Everything we could possibly want and more? Check. Sounds like a great time to renew our vows.
Unsweetened Golden Oolong Tea
Best sipped on the porch.
Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza
The cheese and sauce are great, but this pie really comes down to two words: cauliflower crust.
Organic French Roast Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
The bottle looks small, but you can get more than 11 cups of delicious iced coffee from this amazing concentrate.
Organic Purple Maize Flakes
Don’t knock ’em until you try ’em. They’re actually really delicious. (The violet hue comes from organic purple whole corn flour.)
Dress Circle Crispy Crunchy Chocolate-Chip Cookies
Irresistible, bite-size wafers.
Chicken Tikka Masala
A quick microwaveable lunch that's under $4.
Unexpected Cheddar Cheese
What’s the surprise? It tastes a little like cheddar, a little like Parmesan. Oh, and it’s also $4.
Premium Wild Salmon Burgers
The easiest way to cook seafood.
Creamy with plenty of fun toppings: roasted red pepper, pine nuts, olive oil and herbs.
Sublime Ice-Cream Sandwiches
This gourmet treat is no ordinary Chipwich (but it'll still bring back memories of hanging out by the pool in fifth grade).
Corn and Chile Tomato-Less Salsa
If tomatoes aren’t your thing, it’s time to meet your new best friend. Tortilla chips, please.
Peanut Butter Pretzels
Definitely eaten a whole bag of these in one sitting (don’t judge us).
Brewed Ginger Beer
You haven’t lived until you’ve made a Dark and Stormy with one of these guys. You just haven’t.
Best served with a dollop of Mediterranean Hummus (see above).
Organic Tea and Lemonade
Because Trader Joe would never make you mix your own.
Red Refresh Herbal Tea
The perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
Sliced Fresh Mozzarella
It’s statistically impossible to eat just one slice. (We checked.)
Hold the Cone!
Just like having your own personal ice-cream truck.
Mandarin Orange Chicken
Takeout, schmakeout. These sauce-covered nuggets are just as good.
Cold-Pressed Matcha Green Tea Lemonade
Hellooo, grab-and-go breakfast.
Mango and Sticky Rice Spring Rolls
TJ’s isn’t fooling around: The rice in these rolls has been simmered in coconut milk.
Green Dragon Hot Sauce
Spicy food fans, rejoice. You’ll want to smother every meal in this stuff from now on.
Organic Toaster Pastries
Available in Frosted Strawberry, Frosted Pomegranate, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon and Frosted Pumpkin, this breakfast treat tastes practically identical to its non-organic relative.
Premium Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Lean and full of “grassy” notes, this oil tastes like the high-quality stuff you get with your bread at a restaurant.
Organic Midnight Moo
Chocolate milk? Don’t mind if we dooooo.
It’s salty (but not too salty) and packs just the right amount of umami.
Crisp, slightly sweet kohlrabi + shredded kale and red cabbage + golden beets = a superhero salad mix.
Organic Sriracha and Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce
Make wings with this. Just do it. Right now.
Organic Broccoli Slaw
This extra crunchy blend uses julienned broccoli stems, which would normally be tossed. Neat.
They have a fleeting season, but these plum-apricot hybrids will take your summer pie game over the top.
All Natural Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
They cook up plump and juicy and are just $4.99 a pound. The only thing that’s missing? Antibiotics.
We love spreading this blended-up tomato, garlic and fresh basil topping on grilled cheese sandwiches.
Carne Asada Autentica
Pre-marinated lime-cilantro sirloin steaks take minutes to sear on the stove. Oooh, zesty.
This butterflied bird has all the oomph of a whole chicken, minus the long cooking time. Take your pick between Lemon Rosemary and Coffee Rubbed.
Whole Milk Mango Kefir
Creamy, smooth, slightly tart and just a bit fizzy.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Caution: It’s easy to eat a whole bag in one sitting.
Everything Pretzel Slims
Pair with hummus and add to your party playbook, stat.
Five Seed Almond Bars
Cookies are totally a breakfast food when they contain omega-3s.
If you like heat and garlic, meet your ultimate snack. It’s anything but basic.
Just Mango Slices
Tender, chewy and true to their name.
Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn
Why choose when you can have both?
Drive Thru Red Dry Hopped Red Ale
Caramel undertones, a touch of hops plus a malty finish. Cheers!
Restaurant-Style Tortilla Chips
Your best friend on nacho night, these crunchy durable chips are also delicious straight from the bag.
Secco Mango Mangocini
Fizzy wine meets a splash of mango juice. Perfect for porch swing weather.
Sea Salt and Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds
Introducing perfection dusted in raw sugar and sea salt.
Organic Corn Chips
A scooped shape makes these the perfect vehicle for dips, chilis and even chopped salad. Who needs forks anyway?
Trader Joe’s Grand Reserve Chardonnay Santa Lucia
Two bucks buys you a quality bottle; $13 lets you drink like a queen.
Triple Ginger Snaps
The only thing that’s missing? A tall glass of milk—or chai tea.
Trader Joe’s Highland Single Malt Scotch WHISKY
Aged for eight years and only $15? That’s less than half the price of big brand names.
Mozzarella and Tomato Salad
TJ, thanks for making us a perfect, satisfying lunch salad. We owe you one. (Or 50.)
