What’s New at Trader Joe’s in January? Brussels Sprout-Bacon Ravioli, Corn Ribs and More

Our New Year’s resolution for 2023? Cook and buy more foods that we actually want to eat. (Maybe that way, we’ll avoid “accidentally” ordering takeout four times a week.) Luckily, our grocery store boo is here to help with exciting pantry staples, plant-based dishes and snacks that we can’t wait to add to our cart. Read on for 11 new Trader Joe’s products to shop this January while they last.

The 26 Best Things at Trader Joe's, According to Their Employees


1. Brussels Sprouts & Uncured Bacon Ravioli

This pasta haven just added the ultimate cold-weather ravioli to its collection. Think shredded sprouts, smoky bacon, caramelized onion and all the Parm and mozz your heart desires.

2. White Miso Paste

White miso is an absolute must in our pantry. Savory, salty and loaded with umami, this fermented ingredient can be used in soups, sauces, marinades, dips and even baked goods. (Hi, miso-maple loaf.)

3. Stir Fried Garlicky Cabbage

You can never have too many heat-and-eat sides in your freezer. This vegan twist on the Thai dish galam plee pad nam pla stars a plant-based stir fry sauce instead of traditional fish sauce.

4. Seasoned Corn Ribs

We were waiting for summer to revisit this TikTok trend, but it turns out that we can dig into curved corn "ribs," slathered in plant-based butter and salt, right this minute. (We'll be zhuzhing ours up with lime juice, chili powder and cotija cheese.)

5. Italian Tomato & Red Onion Focaccia

Neapolitan-style focaccia meets juicy roasted tomatoes and paper-thin slices of grilled red onion to create the appetizer of our dreams. Did we mention it goes from frozen to devourable in 12 minutes flat?

6. Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Almond Pesto Sauce

Put down the basil and step away from the blender: You just might like this jarred take on your go-to pasta sauce more than the O.G. Chalk it up to organic roasted red bell peppers, Pecorino Romano and lots of herbs and spices.

7. Brewed Ginger Beer

Our crystal ball sees a Moscow mule in your future. TJ's has sold fizzy ginger beer—made with ginger juice, ginger extract and citrus juices—in bottles before, but something about these slim cans makes it even more appetizing.

8. Super Seedy Cheese Snack Bites

One bite, and you'll be totally hypnotized by the snack's earth-shattering crunch. The Parmesan cheese base is amped up with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, puffed quinoa and black sesame seeds, along with whole black peppercorns for cacio e pepe-like flavor.

9. Sliced Korean Rice Cakes

Now, you can try all those TikTok rice cake recipes you bookmarked without searching for a specialty grocery store. Stir fry them with whatever veggies, proteins and sauces you have on hand after a brief boil.

10. Four-Cheese Ravioli

TJ's is famous for its unconventional ravioli varieties, but we're beyond psyched to try this simple-yet-delicious iteration, stuffed with ricotta, hard grating, mozzarella and provolone cheeses.

11. Figo! Half-Dipped Chocolate & Vanilla Sandwich Bars

Want a dessert on hand that won't fill you up too much after dinner? These tiny chocolate wafer sammies are just the thing. They pair beautifully with cappuccinos, too. (No wonder they're named after the Italian word for "cool.")
