We’re back in action with full carts (and empty cupboards) at Trader Joe’s! While I did pick up my usual organic produce, baking needs, and Tony’s favorite sandwich meats, I had to balance it out with some fun new snacks and treats. As you all know I love to whip up homemade goods on the regular…but everyone needs some good grab-and-go’s, am I right?
This week we scoured the aisles for all things crunchy, salty, savory and sweet and rounded up 25 of our favorites. These new finds are 25 ways to treat yo’ self, because balance is key and I’m a firm believer in moderation. Here we go!
1.) Roasted Plantain Chips. Love plantain everything…chip form? Sign me up!
2.) Ranch Seasoned Crispy Chickpeas. These babies had me a ranch…fun snack with a good amount of protein!
3.) Inner Peas. These salty, crunchy bites are delish on their own or thrown into a snack mix.
4.) Seeded Mango & Ginger Crisps. A sweet & savory combo for your favorite cheese (maybe that Jalapeño Honey Chevre we found?)
5.) Quinoa & Black Bean Infused Tortilla Chips. My absolute favorite chips for salsa, guac, and snacking.
6.) Popcorn with Herbs & Spices. Gotta love all things popcorn…especially with these amazing spices!
7.) Hot & Spicy Dill Pickle Chips. I raise my hand for anything hot and spicy (and LOVE pickles).
8.) RX Bar. Good ol’ TJ’s has my ultimate snack go-to!
9.) Cultured Coconut Milk. Aka dairy-free coconut milk yogurt! Top with any of the delish dried fruits below:
10.) Dried Wild Blueberries. These. Are. Amazing. By the handful, please! They taste exactly like gummy bears.
11.) Just Mango Slices. Pack these in your to-go bag – the perfect amount of sweetness and a satisfying chew.
12.) Coconut Strips. Can you tell I love coconut? This bag is awesome PLUS check the freezer section for frozen coconut meat!
13.) Almonds, Cashews, Pistachios, Chocolate, Cranberries & Cherries. Enough said. Sooo many goods.
All things chocolate
14.) Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds. Chocolate + sea salt = the best combo ever.
15.) Absolute Black Chocolate w/ Cocoa Nibs. As dark as it gets! The cocoa nibs add a little crunch to this 100% bar.
16.) Dark Chocolate Bar w/ Caramel and Black Sea Salt. If 100% isn’t your forte this one will be!
17.) The Dark Chocolate Lover’s Chocolate Bar. This one’s perfectly balanced with a slight sweetness and hints of fruit!
18.) Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Chocolate and peanut butter? These are perfect in every way.
19.) Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies. If you like macaroons you’re going to love the salted caramel center in these babies.
20.) Pinks & Whites. Okay anyone else grow up on these in animal-form?! So nostalgic!
21.) Maple Leaf Cookies. Hello FALL! Who’s ready for maple everything? Okay maybe too soon, but these look amazing.
22.) Triple Ginger Snaps. Love love ginger cookies with a cup of tea or coffee. Afternoon treats, anyone?
23.) Brownie Crisp. These crunchy, chocolate-y treats are vegan and gluten free! Look at those chocolate chunks…
24.) Chocolatey Coated Chocolate Chip Dunkers. I’ll be dunking these in some almond coconut milk – yum!
25.) Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel Slims. Your favorite crispy pretzels drenched in delicious dark chocolate…nothing better.
