If you know me in real life, you know that I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s. When my husband and I were looking at leaving the DC area, one of my requirements was that whatever new city we moved to had to have one. On this week’s trip, I picked up some new fall goodies in my Trader Joe’s haul to share with you.
Here’s what I tried and if I thought it was worth the buy.
Apple Cider Jam: Buy It
Basically apple pie in a jar. This would be so good on toast and bagels.
Candy Corn Popcorn: Skip It
This doesn’t taste like candy corn at all. I had high hopes for this one, but I won’t be finishing the bag.
I wasn’t sure about this one at first. Cheese and cinnamon sounded like a weird combination. But it’s so good. It’s a perfect salty sweet snack. This is good on its own or paired with crackers or pretzel thins.
Autumn Maple Coffee: Buy It
It’s a light roast so it’s not the boldest coffee you’ll have this fall, but it is pretty good. Be sure to follow the directions on the bag because it recommends a higher coffee to water ratio than what your coffee pot probably recommends. It’s easy to drink and a good way to start your mornings this fall.
Pumpkin Bagels: Skip It
I think these have been better in past years. They’re a little more bland and lacking in flavor than I remember from when I’ve had them before.
Savory Corn Pie: Buy It
This is every bit as good as it sounds. And it makes for an easy dinner when you don’t feel like putting in much effort.
Maple & Sea Salt Kettle Corn: Buy It
This kettle corn is addicting. I had to be careful not to eat the whole bag in one sitting. Maple kettle corn will be a staple in my household until Trader Joe’s stops selling it.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Pods: Buy It
We got a coffee maker with a single-serve side from our wedding registry so we’re getting on the coffee pod train in my house. The pumpkin flavor is just enough in these.
Artichoke & Jalapeno Dip: Buy It
This is one of my favorites. I like to keep this in the fridge during the week to snack on during the day. It has a good kick to it without being too spicy.
