The Top 10 Snacks at Trader Joe’s

It’s a common understanding amongst chronic snackers (or snackies): Trader Joe’s is everyone’s go to place for snacks. It’s like Snack Heaven, where snackers can unite to indulge in the unique concoctions TJ’s comes up with.

Now we don’t know why Trader Joe’s constantly puts out these amazingly-delicious-but-incredibly-fattening snacks on their shelves, but we’re not complaining. Here are top 10 snacks to get during your next trip to Trader Joe’s:

1. Cookie Butter

Okay, so this is a Trader Joe’s staple. Everyone knows this is a must-have if you go to TJ’s. It’s like a cookie in a spread. That you can eat. And not get salmonella from.

2. Cookie Butter and Chocolate Swirl

Then of course, there’s this beautiful hybrid of a creation. Two of everyone’s favorite flavors in a mix of delicious gooey amazingness that can be eaten with anything (or by itself).

3. Cookie Butter Chocolate Cups


Sensing a theme here? Well let me tell you why this is so special: It’s cookie butter IN chocolate. Forget the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, these are way better.


Chocolate-covered pretzels, chocolate-covered potato chips, and chocolate-covered edamame? Trader Joe’s has everything covered for you!

5. Multi-Flavored Joe-Joe’s

Now most of us love our Joe-Joe’s, but these Multi-Flavored Joe-Joe’s come in an assortment of mouthwatering flavors like Peanut Butter, Ginger, Double Chocolate, and Peppermint.

6. Mini Heart Cookies

“A taste on the lips, forever on the hips” does not apply when you indulge in these goodies. These perfectly crunchy shortbread cookies covered in dark chocolate and sprinkles will have you reaching for one more – or 10 more – in minutes.

7. S’mores Ice Cream

Now there’s no reason for you to go to a bonfire anymore! Trader Joe’s does all the work for you. These S’mores Ice Creams sandwiches are everything you want and more. With Marshmallow-Chocolate Gelato squeezed between graham crackers, why go out when you can stay in and eat one of these bad boys?

8. Cowgirl Bark

This beauty features a white chocolate base with crisped rice, Triped Ginger cookies, pretzels, cranberries, almonds, and peanuts. Sweet, salty, and the perfect size to snack on. P.S. There’s also a Cowboy version, but I think these are way better.

9. Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Wedges

Cake…on a stick? Honestly, the cake gods are probably screaming up in Sweets Heaven. I think the name itself is self-explanatory: “an ice cream that thinks it’s a cheesecake.”

10. Mac & Cheese Bites

Enough with the sweets and onto the Savery. Trader Joe’s has a variety of amazingly appetizing savory treats as well. Their Mac and Cheese Bites are just enough for your taste buds to explode with the taste of cheesy noodles packed into a small snack!
