Another month, another Trader Joe’s run. This time, we’re bringing home fall flavors with these new Trader Joe’s products that are great for feeding a family.
I can think of no better way to stock the freezer for our busiest nights — or for evenings when the sitter will be feeding the kids dinner — than with this frozen Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese. With three cheeses and veg already mixed in, this is sure to be a winner, and for only $2.99 for each 12-ounce package.
My kids love cookies from Trader Joe’s and we can mix it up for fall with these new Pumpkin and Roasted Pepitas Cookies. Chock full of warming nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and clove, the kids are sure to love these. And I am, too, so thank goodness they are only 130 calories per seven-cookie serving! The price is pretty good too: $2.49 for a 5-ounce bag, which is almost 3 dozen cookies.
If, like me, you’re looking to switch up your tortilla chip-pita chip rotation, give these Cornbread Crisps a try. A little sweet and a little salty, these pair beautifully with anything that goes well with traditional cornbread. I, for one, can’t wait to try these with a big bowl of warming chili. Grab a six-ounce bag for $2.49.
I have a weak spot for anything sour cherry, and cherry preserves are on the top of my list. The new Organic Reduced Sugar Cherry Preserves has all of the flavor I love, but with 50% less sugar than the regular variety. That’s a pretty serious difference, right? And especially cool given that my kids will want to eat this on toast for breakfast. And while that’s the way we’ll enjoy these preserves most times, it’s also great for cooking. You can stir it into BBQ sauce, combine it with grainy mustard for a pork loin glaze, or toss some into a smoothie. Mmm. Each 15-ounce jar costs $2.99.
Yogurt is a staple in my house, so I’m thrilled that TJ’s has introduced their own Trader Joe’s Icelandic Style Plain and Strawberry Nonfat Yogurts. Thick and creamy like Greek-style, but with a smoother flavor, this skyr is also packed with protein: each 8-ounce serving has a whopping 22 grams of the stuff. Perfect for breakfast! And, if you ask me, snack time too. Each 8-ounce cup costs $1.39.
Last, but never least: dessert. Great snacks and desserts are one of the main reasons to head to TJ’s in the first place, right? So I’m super excited to try this seasonal Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone! treats. Each mini ginger-flavored cone is topped with a just-right scoop of pumpkin ice cream that’s covered with a white confectionary coating. How perfect? (Very, very perfect.) Each 7.9-ounce box contains eight cones and costs $2.99.
