What’s New at Trader Joe’s in April? Vegan Taco Salad, Smoked Ahi Tuna and More
As long as you and your honey keep surprising each other, your relationship will stay strong (and spicy). Luckily, our grocery store boo, Trader Joe, always mixes things up. Behold, 11 new items to shop for at Trader Joe’s this April, from vegan taco salad to small-batch vodka.
1. Tanzania Gombe Reserve Small Lot Coffee
Not only do these bold beans hail from the outskirts of Gombe National Park, but each purchase also supports sustainable agriculture in the area.
2. New Zealand Salted Butter
The yellower the butter, the more flavorful it is. So, you're in for a real treat, since this butter is made from nothing but grass-fed milk and salt. The milk is richer and fuller in fat because the cows aren't fed grains.
3. Sesame-Crusted Hardwood Smoked Ahi Tuna
Savor sashimi-grade, sustainably sourced, pole-caught yellowfin tuna on bagels, quiche, eggs benedict, salad or a rice bowl.
4. Rutland Red Leicester Cheese
It's a U.K. delicacy for a reason—that reason being that this Leicester cheese is hand-coated in butter (!!!) before it's aged to moist, crumbly perfection.
6. Creamed Multi-Floral New Zealand Honey
Ever tried creamed honey? It's made by adding microscopic "seed crystals," or finely crystallized honey, to liquid honey and stirring until it has a luxurious, spreadable consistency that will blow your mind.
7. Vegan Taco Salad Kit
Bye, sad desk lunch. Your services are no longer needed, thanks to chopped veggies, pico de gallo, chipotle seitan, tortilla chips and jalapeño-ranch dressing.
8. Mediterranean Dorade
Tinned fish will change your life—don't say we didn't warn you. Why not start with mild, tender fillets of gilthead sea bream in olive oil and salt?
9. Organic Dark Chocolate From Madagascar
Ethically produced chocolate is unfortunately harder to find than you may think. Luckily, these 92-percent cacao bars are made with heirloom, single-origin cacao beans grown by farmer-run cooperatives.
11. Small Batch Vodka
If your local TJ's carries alcohol, keep your eyes peeled for this corn-based spirit. It starts with water sourced from a natural limestone-filtered aquifer and ends with ten rounds of distillation and charcoal filtration. We'll drink to that.
