Savor the wasabi in Trader Joe’s trek mix

8 Mar

This tasty treat – we’ve got its number. Wasabi turns up the volume in this bag of crunchy goodness – peanuts, almonds and peas.

This mix’ll kick you from behind and keep you moving on down the trail. It’s the taste of off-road travel.

The only problem is being able to close the bag before it’s empty. Tighten the reins, cowgirl. Tighten the reins.

Trader Joe’s “must haves” Faves from 2012

2 Jan

Trader Joe’s constantly comes up with wonderful items. While I love trying the new offerings, I find there are staples that I buy over and over. I have to have them on hand – TJ “must haves.”

I’d love to hear what TJ products you can’t live without! Please share your faves in the comments.

Here are 15 of mine that were featured on Things I Love at Trader Joe’s in 2012:

Gyoza dipping sauce

9 Dec

Thanks, again, to Lisa C. for submitting today’s TJ fave. This sauce goes with the Chicken Gyoza Potstickers like peanut butter goes with chocolate. Like milk goes with cookies. Like small nesting dolls go with larger nesting dolls. These two things just fit.

This sauce is the closest you’ll get to mixing fresh lime juice (check out TJ’s bag o’ limes) and soy sauce with none of the hand cramps from citrus squeezing and opening tightly closed bottles.

Mandarin Orange Chicken

7 Dec

Today, we offer some quick ‘n’ crispy goodness. Recommendation from Lisa C:

Lisa says: Really great served with Trader Joe’s rice. Conveniently located in the frozen food case next to the Mandarin Orange Chicken.

Great taste. Right price.
