Trader Joe’s is my Disneyland.
Here comes my most important post to date…
If you’re lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s near you, you know exactly where I’m coming from. Trader Joe’s is truly one of my favorite places in the world. Yes, this is what my life has come to.
Yesterday, I took a trip to my happy place and picked up a few of my holy grail items and felt the need to share. Because Trader Joe’s has so many original products, that are so easy to get obsessed with, they keep me coming back for more and more. Sorry, bank account.
My first item is my favorite of all time. I’m sure you’ve seen this all over the internet; it’s been my obsession for years now! Everything but the Bagel seasoning blend is iconic, guys. If you’re a fan of everything bagels or just adding a crunch to your meal, you’ll die over this. I add it to my avocado toast, bagel & cream cheese and even my salads. I can’t get enough, get on the train!
Next up is my current obsession. Tamales, guys. Why did it take me so long to try these? It took me a minute to figure out how to properly eat a tamale (embarrassing), but now I’m a pro. Trader Joe’s has their own handmade tamales. I love the Vegetarian and Chicken & Green Chile ones with a burning passion. I would eat these every single day if I could, you need to check them out.
Speaking of Mexican cuisine, Trader Joe’s has the most bomb Salsa Verde. If you know me, you know I do not do well with spicy foods. Qdoba’s salsa verde is one of my favorite condiments ever, because it’s the perfect amount of heat for me. This salsa verde from TJ’s is literally as if they jarred up Qdoba’s magic sauce just for me. I add it to my tamales, salads, chicken or just straight up with tortilla chips. Can’t get enough.
Last, but definitely not least, Kung Pao Tempura Cauliflower. You don’t have to pretend like you’re not curious about the cauliflower trend, just jump on the wagon! I’ve tried cauliflower rice, buffalo cauliflower and even cauliflower pizza crust. But once I tried this meatless creation, I was hooked. If you’re a fan of Kung Pao or any Chinese food for that matter, give this a try. It takes exactly like chicken and it’s the perfect addition to any stir fry.
Well, there ya have it. I’m sorry for causing you to drop everything and head to Trader Joe’s tonight, it was only a matter of time. If you guys have any holy grail TJ products that I missed, please fill me in; add to my addiction!
