Finger Licking BBQ Rub
Most people don’t know how good coffee rub is on BBQ. It’s typically a southern thing but it’s making its way around. It’s smokey, sweet, and savory. This all-in-one rub can make anyone’s food taste like a grill master. Don’t let the coffee in it put you off. It gives it a flavor you just can’t replace.
Slim Jim Wishes It Was This Good
Trader Joe’s has amazing beef jerky sticks. They don’t make it themselves though. I like that they know when another company does it better and chooses to carry that brand. This is a perfect example of that. Perfectly smoked, seasoned, and spiced. Especially if your keto, this snack is a must-have.
Naughty Cinnamon Bun Spread
Some things you just can’t make as good and Cinnamon roll spread is that thing. I’ve tried and I just can’t beat the mouth-watering flavor of Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Bun Spread. I still make my own icing and dough. When you add this spread to the dough and top it with Cream Cheese Icing. Heaven! It’s also good on toast in the middle of the night. But, I wouldn’t know.
The Coconut Oil That Does Everything
Coconut oil is amazing. It’s naturally anti-bacterial, so you can use it for dandruff, eczema, and as a general moisturizer. Like a lot of other families, we started using coconut oil in place of other cooking oils. It’s healthier for you and Trader Joe’s carries a really good one. They have a discount when you buy three at a time.
Keurig Lovers That Want The Perfect Cup
For those of us in love with single-serve coffee makers, Trader Joe’s has amazing-tasting coffee pods. Dark roast coffee burns out a lot of caffeine, but the medium roast has a great balance of caffeine, acid, richness, and flavor. Beats Starbucks pods every time!
Guilty Pleasure That Might Have Gone Too Far
I didn’t even know cookie butter was a thing until my friend, Q, came over with a jar. I immediately rejected it, but after a few more pushes she finally gave up trying to convince me. Of course, later that night after she had left I saw it sitting on the counter. Curiosity got the better of me. I knew she had left it on purpose. I dipped my finger in and taste it. It felt like fireworks went off in my mouth! It tastes like nothing I have ever tried before and it was glorious. I only buy it during the holidays to keep from getting diabetes. It is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Don’t believe me? Pick up some here to try for yourself.
Everyone Knows Trader Joe’s Has The Best Dried Fruit
Trader Joe’s dried Oranges are absurdly delicious. So is all the dried fruit at Trader Joe’s! They have the process down! Sweet and somehow still juicy. On our road trip, all the dried fruit was the first to go. Especially if working out is your thing, a couple of these afterward hits the spot. Grab a few bags and get some of the other fruits too.
Dunkers & Coffee, The Perfect Marriage
Dunkers are like a crossbreed between a cookie and a biscotti. The icing on top when you dip it in black coffee is a match made in heaven. Heat them up for a few seconds and add dried cranberry to the hot icing and it tastes like its own holiday.
The Seasoning You Didn’t Know You Were Missing
I thought this Everything But The Bagel seasoning was only for bagels. So, that is all I used it for. Bagel, cream cheese, and Everything seasoning on top. One day I ran out of my normal Chicken seasoning. I looked in the cabinet and all I really had was this. So I used it hoping I didn’t waste 2lbs of chicken. It came out amazing. I squeezed a little lemon juice as well and it was so good. Experiment with it. You won’t be disappointed.
Make The Holidays Spicy With Ginger Snaps
I love these cookies. I never was a huge fan of ginger snaps, but one of my old co-workers introduced me and I’ve been a fan ever since. Normally it is a Christmas thing, but I’ve definitely let this holiday cookie last way past Santa’s day. Dip in egg nog and thank me later.
My Favorite Granola Cereal That’s Not Cereal
So I don’t know what other people do with granola, but my favorite thing to do is treat it like cereal. A big bowl, a big spoon, and a whole lot of milk. Especially in the middle of the night right before sleep. I know it’s bad but the healthy oats should count for something right?! And, who can go wrong with peanut butter helping to boost it up to 11 grams of protein per serving. With milk, you’re looking at 20 grams of protein per serving! Solid work late night snackers.
Lemon Lovers Rejoice For This Cookie
Alright, these lemon cookies are really good on their own. But, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two of them? Come on now! Something about lemon and ice cream together just feels and tastes right! Pick up a few boxes of these girl scout cookie rivals before they go quick.
Cookies For Your Inner Canadian
Another great cookie for ice cream cookie sandwiches. Maple Leaf Cookies definitely have that cookie biscuit vibe, but with a sweet maple flavor. They are so good! These are about the closest you can get to homemade without actually doing it yourself. No preservatives, no colors, and no artificial flavors mean these will have a shorter shelf life but are so worth it.
Peanut Butter Pretzels You Can’t Keep Your Hands Out Of
These peanut butter-filled pretzels are one of the hardest snacks to portion control. If you don’t pre-portion these out, you’ll look down and the whole bag will be gone. These don’t last in my house. Typically, they’re gone the same day I bring them home. Make sure to grab more than one bag. You’ll need it.
Reeses Pieces Who?
Trader Joe’s hands down make the best peanut butter cup in the world. Period. The problem is that they are so easy to access. You know the mini Reeses cups that you have to unwrap to eat. Well with Trader Joe’s cups they are already unwrapped. All you have to do is peel the wrapper bottom and eat. Which means it’s super easy to eat the whole bucket. Be careful!
Pumpkin Spice Bars Are Breakfast Of Champs
If pumpkin spice is your thing, these cereal bars are a hit. I’m the type to walk into the coffee shop and order the pumpkin spice latte, muffin, loaf cake, and scone. I can’t get enough. I’ll admit it’s a little overboard. These cereal bars are perfect for those mornings I just don’t have time for the drive-thru. I got to go, but I need a little something to swing me til lunch. Pick up a box, or two, maybe three to be safe.
The Real Fruit Rollups
My kids go insane for these fruit bars. It’s literally dried fruit with no sugar added and they think it’s candy. Which is awesome because I think we can all agree our kids eating less sugar is a good thing.
Christmas In A Cup Latte Mix
I don’t know what it is about Spicy Chai but it screams Thanksgiving and Christmas to me. Maybe just like the spicy ginger snaps something about spicy and heat is perfect for the cold winter weather. I just love it. I’ve tried to make Chai lattes with the tea bags. But, it never really comes out quite as good as this mix. Just add a scoop to your cup and pour in boiling water and you’re good to go.
Old Fashioned Style Licorice
I love the old-fashioned packaging of these Strawberry Licorice twists. It reminds me of Branson, Missouri. If you haven’t been there before you have to go. It also reminds me of Cracker Barrel. Besides all that it tastes amazing, juicy, and the strawberry flavor is just out of this world.
The Waffle Cookie Conundrum
When I first saw Rip Van Wafels I was not impressed. It took me a long time to give them a try. Once I did there was no going back. They are not that easy to come by though. Which is awesome that Trader Joe’s carries them on Amazon Prime. They are crunchy, chewy, creamy, and sweet with hints of vanilla. It checks all the boxes and goes perfectly with coffee for those of us that love a cup after dinner.
Finally A Trail Mix Without Peanuts
The only problem with trail mixes is that most of them are swarming with peanuts. I don’t have any problems with peanuts but the mixes are always really peanut-heavy and not balanced. This Trek Mix has a really even proportion of almonds, cashews, and cranberry. Giving you a great balance in every handful.
Winter Wonderland In A Cup
A spicy flavor of a tea that could be Chai’s cousin. Winter Wake Up screams holidays. Waking up by brewing a cup and watching the snow fall in the backyard is the best thing. Brewing a second cup before you finally get dressed to scrape the car windows to do last-minute shopping is even better. I love this tea. It brings back great memories with a mere smell.
