50+ Best Trader Joe’s Products 2020


Trader Joe’s / Maddie Flager

There’s the shopping list you make when you go to Trader Joe’s, and then there’s the list in your head—the must-grabs you don’t even need to remind yourself to pick up. These 50+ items combine the best of both worlds: our beloved favorites we grab every time and the newest products we’re most excited to try. Happy shopping!

Keto Fudge Bites

If you’re following keto, you NEED these keto fudge bites from TJ’s. Each bag comes with seven bites for $4.99 and are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth for a midday pick me up or after dinner snack. Bonus: They’re gluten free, non GMO, and paleo friendly.

Kale Gnocchi

Trader Joe’s is at it again with its gnocchi made of, well, anything! Those who have picked it up suggest pairing it with a creamy sauce and cheese. After all, you already have the veggies covered!

Cold Brew Latte Dessert Bars

If you’re a fan of coffee, this is an easy, no-fuss dessert you can pull right out of the freezer.

Queso Fundido

Even vegetarians can enjoy this dip because it’s made with soy chorizo. Just heat it up and eat it up.

Buffalo Style Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip is perfect, but it can take some time to prepare. Now that Trader Joe’s sells this stuff pre-made, something tells me you’re going to have company over a lot more often.

Green Goddess Dip

If you struggle to get your veggies in, look no further than this Green Goddess Dip. Who wouldn’t plow through a bag of baby carrots when you can dip them in a dip made with ingredients like avocado, scallions, and garlic.

Chocolate Peppermint Loaf & Baking Mix

TJ’s baking mixes are a life-saver to keep in your pantry. If people drop by unexpectedly (which to be real, they always do over the holidays!) you can be prepared to make something delicious for them in a pinch…like chocolate peppermint loaf. What could be better?

Chocolate Lava Gnocchi

Sure, you’ve tried Cauliflower Gnocchi, but this chocolate dessert gnocchi is next level. It’s pieces of pillowy chocolate pasta with a molten chocolate core. Pasta is totally dessert now, y’all! Get on board.

Turkey And Stuffing Kettle Chips

Trader Joe’s turkey-and-stuffing-flavored chips are back! They’ve been in stores seasonally since at least 2016, with fans calling them “weird but good” and “Thanksgiving flavor in a chip!!” For $2 a bag, they’re the kind of thing that’s too tempting—and cheap—not to try.

Philly Cheesesteak Bao Buns

Truly the mashup we didn’t know we needed. Soft and pillowy bao are filled with steak and cheese for a perfect snack. This will run you $3.49.

Cauliflower Tot Casserole

You may think tater tots are off limits when you’re following Keto, but not when they’re made of cauliflower. Add in some cheese and Bechamel Sauce and this dish looks unreal. Just be sure to give the nutrition facts a gander to make sure it’s truly low carb.

Fall Leaf Tortilla Chips

These tortilla chips are just begging to be put out at your next fall party. They’re like your typical chips but come shaped and colored like fall leaves. You can pick these up for $2.99 and pair them with your favorite autumnal salsas.

Cinnamon Bun Spread

If you’re a fan of cookie butter, you’re gonna love this stuff. This spread tastes like the delicious inside of a cinnamon bun (AKA butter, sugar and cinnamon). As Instagrammer @TheSnacksOfLife pointed out, this spread would be delicious on pancake bread, but you could also put it on normal bread…or a spoon.

Tiramisu Torte

Tiramisu is undoubtedly delicious, but whipping one up isn’t exactly quick. And the time you spend on it is time you could be spending with your guests at your next ~fancy dinner party~. Instead, try picking one of these up at Trader Joe’s. Stick it in the fridge while you cook, and it’ll be perfect by dessert.

Everything But The Bagel Dip

First there was the seasoning, now there’s the dip. This Greek yogurt dip is mixed with sesame seeds, sea salt, poppy seeds, garlic, and onion and is great to use as a dip for veggies, crackers or, dare I say, everything bagels?

Pumpkin Butter

Trader Joe’s ICONIC Pumpkin Butter is back right on cue, and we couldn’t be more excited to spread it on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. The 10-ounce jars are also only $2.29, so you betcha we’re stocking up to last us the entire year.

Trader Joe’s Joe Joe’s Cookies And Cream Light Ice Cream

There are few things better than regular old cookies and cream ice cream, but lower-calorie, high-protein Joe-Joe’s cookies and cream ice cream just may take the cake.

It boasts 20g of protein and has only 310 calories in the whole pint, which means you’ll definitely just want to polish it off in one sitting.

Vegan Ranch Dip

Whether you’re dairy free, vegan, or just looking for a new dip to try, you’ll be psyched to find Trader Joe’s new vegan ranch dip. A 12-ounce tub only costs $3.49!

Mac And Cheese Bites

They’re baaaaack! After leaving stores for a short time due to a supplier issue, Trader Joe’s finally reintroduced its famous Mac and Cheese Bites. They’re stuffed with seven types of cheese. SEVEN. Count ’em with us: cheddar, havarti, Swiss, gouda, cream cheese, Monterey jack, and pecorino romano.

Ketchup Flavored Spud Crunchies

Gone are the days when only Canadians could enjoy ketchup-flavored chips. This new addition to TJ’s snack aisles looks like a ketchup-lovers dream—per @traderjoesfl, these guys taste like potato sticks, “but really big on ketchup flavor.” We’re sold!

Sweet Corn, Burrata, & Basil Ravioli

They’re baaaaack. Trader Joe’s launched these seasonal ravioli—stuffed with sweet corn, burrata, and basil—summers ago, but they remain a shopper favorite. The pasta’s biggest fans recommend keeping the sauce simple, just some butter and fresh-cracked pepper.

Tumeric Ginger Coconut Beverage

Anyone who’s tried to make this healthy Ayurvedic drink at home knows how time-intensive it can be (turmeric and ginger don’t dissolve easily into milk). Thank gawd TJ’s has already done the hard work for us! At a $2.69 price point, we couldn’t be more grateful.

Campanology Lemon Peal

Hello, welcome to the end of your perfect summer beverage search. ‘Tis right here (well, actually you’ll have to leave your house and go to Trader Joe’s, but ’tis right there). These “Lemon Peal” cans are fizzy, tart, and—best of all—boozy. The malt beverage has a 5.7% ABV.

Ube Ice Cream

This bright purple ice cream is alllllll the rage right now, and not just because it’s so Instagrammable. But, yeah, that too. According to Trader Joes, this Ube-flavored ice cream (which is a filipino yam btw) is “sweet & nutty, with hints of coconut.” Basically, it tastes like a vanilla pistachio hybrid, and is only 3 bucks!

Bloody Mary Salsa

Like all of TJ’s salsas, this one’s priced cheap—just $2.99 for a 12-ounce jar. The store describes it as tangy, spicy, and refreshing. The tomato base is spiked with pickling brine, horseradish, red jalapeño peppers, and green chile peppers. You could use it on chips or add it to burgers.

Creamy Pink Primavera Pasta Sauce

If you’re looking for a new, healthier pasta sauce option, this pretty pink sauce is made with a mix of tomatoes, beets, cauliflower, and chickpeas. Half a cup (the suggested serving size) has 130 calories, 3 grams of protein, and 6 grams of sugar.

Cold Brew Coconut Cream Lattes

These dairy-free drinks sound amaaazing: There’s a caramel spice version, made with natural flavors of caramel, cinnamon, and citrus, and an original flavor. Each 9-ounce can costs $1.99!

Everything but the Bagel Seasoned Smoked Salmon

Trader Joe’s finally did with their prolific Everything but the Bagel seasoning what fans have been doing for years: They’ve added it to prepackaged, presliced smoked salmon.

Sparkling Watermelon Juice

Just in time for the warm weather, Trader Joe’s introduced sparkling watermelon juice. Has anything ever sounded so refreshing?! Each can packs only 60 calories. TJ’s sells ’em in 4-packs, but if you want a sample before you commit, you can buy a single can for only $1. $1!!!

Peanut Butter Blondies

Trader Joe’s frozen aisle has a new addition and it might just be the easiest way to bring dessert to a party. These Peanut Butter Blondies, made with a layer of strawberry filling, just need to be defrosted before eating. Best of luck eating only one.

Milk & Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn

We know what snack we’re bringing to the movies this weekend … Trader Joe’s new Milk & Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn. It sounds like the salty-sweet combo of our DREAMS. Plus, the packaging is SO adorable and perfect for spring.

Beef Sirloin Taco Kit

You guys…Trader Joe’s did it again. They launched a new product that looks incredibly delicious, is easy to make, and is insanely affordable (the TJ’s trifecta). This taco kit comes with literally everything you need to create the perfect taco: tortillas, marinated beef sirloin (you’ll have to quickly cook it yourself), guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, and jalapeno.

Organic Dark Chocolate PB&J Minis

These little treats are filled with peanut butter and raspberry fruit filling and COVERED in dark chocolate. Talk about the ultimate sweet and salty combo! We’re going to have trouble not eating the entire bag in one sitting…

Outside-In Stuffed Gnocchi

When we first spotted these, we knew we had to try them. What could be better than soft pillows STUFFED with cheese?!

Buffalo Style Hummus

This new organic buffalo-style hummus seems like the ideal way to make snacking on veggies more fun. Dip in carrots, peppers, and cucumbers, or spread it on celery for an ants-on-a-log type snack.

Broccoli and Kale Pizza Crust

People FLIP over TJ’s cauliflower crust, and this new broccoli and kale variety is no different.

Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Stars

If you haven’t hoarded half a dozen boxes of these over the holiday season, you haven’t lived.

Corn And Chile Tomato-Less Salsa

There’s pretty much nothing this doesn’t go with: chips, burgers, hot dogs, fish, salad … need we continue?

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Shop before noon if you want even half a chance of finding these in stock. And don’t follow the cooking directions on the back of the bag: Just toss them right into a pan with olive oil or butter.

Norwegian Crispbread

Looks fancy, tastes delicious, packs nutrients. Done.

Everything But The Bagel Seasoning Blend

TJ’s regulars went BONKERS for this when it came out, and now it’s a staple in most people’s spice cabinets.

Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels

Honestly, have you ever made it through the snack aisle without picking these up?

Mandarin Orange Chicken

True life: One time, some friends and I ate this with our hands off of a foil-covered table. The utensils and plates were packed after moving. I regret nothing.

BBQ Chicken Teriyaki

You’re either an orange chicken or teriyaki chicken enthusiast. Not both. Never both.

Chili Lime Chicken Burgers

The price of this four-burger box has stayed the same — $3.49 — since it launched more than a decade ago. Trader Joe’s, you’re just too good to us.

Speculoos Cookie Butter

There are a lot of ways to eat this cookie butter, but this recommendation from the Fearless Flyer is best: “Keep it really simple and just use it as a dip for a spoon.”

Chocolate-Covered Banana Slices

Guess what? These are the best-selling frozen treat OF ALL TIME at Trader Joe’s.

Joe-Joe’s Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies

Oreos … but from Trader Joe’s … so better.

Baked Cheese Crunchies


Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter With Flax And Chia Seeds

You can’t find this anywhere else — at least not with a super-low $3 price tag.

Steamed Lentils

These lentils are what everyone loves most about Trader Joe’s: cheap and ready to eat.

Vegan Kale, Cashew, And Basil Pesto

The tub says “vegan,” but this isn’t just a fan-fav amongst veg-heads. Even meat eaters can’t get enough.

Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds

Dairy-free TJ’s-goers love this because it melts like actual mozz.

Truffle Honey Mustard

This comes in a cute little ceramic crock, so it’s not only a counter-worthy condiment — it’s the perfect addition to a gift basket.

Organic Broccoli Slaw

The best part about this undressed slaw is that you can doctor it any which way you please.

Mini Brie Bites

So you don’t feel bad eating a whole wheel.

Churro Bites

No, no, no, I’ve never eaten a whole bag in one sitting.

Simpler Wines

These are $1 a can, and honestly we can’t think of anything better. Neither can the rest of the people who shop at Trader Joe’s, apparently, since the store brought them back again this summer.

Butternut Squash Zig-Zags

There’s something about these — it’s the super-fun shape — that gets kids and adults alike to eat (and love) their veggies.

Bamba Peanut Snacks

Imagine if Nutter Butters and Pirate’s Booty had a baby. This would be it — and people are OBSESSED.
