36 Trader Joe’s Fall Items We Can’t *Wait* to Try, from Honeycrisp Apple Granola to Salted Maple Ice Cream
New Trader Joe’s Fall Items
A cozy combination of rolled oats, dried Honeycrisp apples, honey, molasses and a flurry of fall spices, this granola would taste divine on yogurt, atop ice cream, in milk or straight out of the bag. Honeycrisp apples are known for their super crunchy texture and sweet flavor.
These are well worth leaving your warm bed for in the morning. Crafted by a Danish bakery, the buns are filled with cinnamon-apple compote and topped with streusel-like crumble. Munch on them straight from the box, dip them in cider or toast them until the filling is warm.
Assembling an epic fall charcuterie board? This mix of dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, maple-rosemary almonds and pecans dusted with red and black peppers will be a welcome addition. Pair the snack with buttery, sharp or herbaceous cheeses.
Returning Trader Joe’s Fall Items
For the uninitiated, spatchcocking calls for removing the backbone from a bird to butterfly it. This makes it easy to split and flatten, which speeds the cooking process and better crisps the skin. This take is seasoned with a maple-Dijon marinade, vinegar powder and rosemary extract.
