1. Italian Lagorai Semi-Soft Cheese

The old-school recipe for this farmhouse cheese hails from the Eastern Italian Alps. Made in the Lagorai mountains, the cheese is mild and has an herbaceous, floral aroma that makes it a mellow addition to a charcuterie board.

Buy it ($10/pound)

2. Mini Chocolate Chip Pancake & Waffle Mix

All you need to transform this mix into your kids' new favorite breakfast is water and a hot skillet. (Oh, and some syrup, obvi.)

Buy it ($4)

3. Gluten-Free Organic Rolled Oats with Ancient Grains & Seeds

Bring on the fiber. This mélange of rolled oats, amaranth, quinoa flakes, black chia seeds and brown flax meal is gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan.

Buy it ($4.50)

4. Organic Cacio e Pepe Puffs

Behold: our favorite snack of 2022 (so far, anyway). The delicately crisp puffs—made from organic corn meal and organic brown rice flour—are dusted in a seasoning blend starring cheddar and Romano cheeses and sharp black pepper.

Buy it ($2)

5. Pesto Rosso

Yup, red pesto is a thing. This take on the Sicilian sauce is made with tomatoes, sunflower oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic and a touch of basil, along with cashews and carrot purée.

Buy it ($2.50)

6. Organic Split Pea Soup

Packed with all the usual suspects (aka onions, carrots, celery and organic split peas), all that's missing is a dusting of crumbled bacon and garlicky croutons on top.

Buy it ($2)

7. Vegan Feta Cheese Alternative

This uncanny take on a Greek fave is made with coconut oil, potato starch and salty brine. Crumble it over salad, bake it into spanakopita or make it the cornerstone of a vegan charcuterie spread.

Buy it ($4)

8. Green & Red Hatch Chile Flakes

Every shake of this seasoning blend boasts the flavors of sweet red hatch chiles and sharp, vegetal green hatch chiles. Did we mention TJ's sources the peppers from New Mexico's renowned Hatch Valley?

9. Kalua Pork Spring Rolls

Kalua pork is a Hawaiian delicacy that's traditionally cooked in an underground oven until tender and smoky. Here, it's shredded and stuffed into crispy spring roll wrappers alongside cabbage, onions, carrots and scallions. Pass the sweet chile sauce, please.

10. Greek Chickpeas with Cumin and Parsley

These tender-yet-toothsome garbanzos are just the finishing touch for your next mezze platter or salad. Blitz them with a drizzle of tahini to create a killer homemade hummus.

11. Protein Patties

Proof that veggie burgers don't always taste like bone-dry hockey pucks. Thanks to beets, these pea protein-based patties have pink centers, just like their meaty predecessors.

Buy it ($4.50)

12. Gluten-Free Loaded Fruit & Nut Granola

Gluten-free, dairy-free and positively packed with nutritious, flavorful mix-ins. We're talking raisins, coconut, cranberries, apricots, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, pecans and three types of seeds.

Buy it ($4)

13. BBQ Teriyaki Chicken

Dark meat stans, this one's for you. Think BBQ-marinated dark meat chicken drenched in soy-based sauce. All that's missing is a bed of rice and steamed broccoli florets.

Buy it ($5.50)

14. Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Whether you use it as a crudité dip or a marinade, this blend of avocado, fresh herbs and alliums is bound to satisfy. (And it only contains 20 calories per serving to boot.)

We see a weekend brunch soirée in your future. TJ's most iconic seasoning is dusted over smoked Atlantic salmon to create the ultimate crowning glory for your morning bagel (or eggs Benedict).

16. Gluten-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins

Because a wheat allergy should never stand between you and nuggets of crystallized cinnamon sugar. The muffins are also impossibly moist, thanks to sour cream and buttermilk in the batter.
