The 50 Most Popular Trader Joe's Products 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.
