Hidden Gems At Trader Joes

Forget about that average cookie butter. Trader Joe’s huge selection brings you some lesser known food items that will leave you piling your shopping cart high. Look out for these eight great picks, and remember to bring your reusable bags! 


1. Salted Caramel Gelato

For that sweet (yet salty) tooth, here is the gelato flavor you have always been craving. 


        2. Zucchini Fries

What better way to get in your vegetables at dinner? 


        3. Avocado Salsa, Pineapple Salsa, Peach Salsa

Essentially, it is a must to check out the salsa aisle.


        4. "Maple Toffee" flavored sunflower seeds

Just give it a try. 


        5. "Peanut Butter and Jelly" nonfat yogurt

For when your heart says you are still in elementary school and your surroundings say you’re a full grown adult.  


        6. Cilantro and Jalapeno flavored hummus, or Mediterranean Hummus

Since this item is near the check out, you better not leave without it. 


        7. Cheddar cheese with Caramelized onions

Stop reverting to your usual shredded mozzarella cheese, and try something fancier.


        8. Chocolate Babka

Try this treat with some “cawfee over a “tawk” with friends.
