7 Trader Joe's Finds You Need to Buy ASAP :: I Adore What I Love Blog :: #iadorewhatiloveHi guys! It’s my birthday and I’m coming in hot with a blog post that has nothing to do with my birthday! Hahaha insert all the laughing emojis here. I’m 34 so it’s not such a big one but next year I’ll do something special on the blog, k?! Anyways – I am totally a Trader Joe’s lover. But, then again, who isn’t? And while I shop at like 7 different grocery stores in a week {well, more like 4 but either way, anyone else feel me on that?}, TJ’s is always the one I look forward to going to most! Maybe it’s because of their amazing prices and I always feel good upon leaving or maybe it’s because of their unique {slash awesome} products that you truly can”t find anywhere else, but either way, my fam and I are huge fans! And now that I have a gluten allergy, I’ve found a few staples that I’m obsessed with and keep in my pantry/refridgerator/freezer at ANY given time. Check them out below!

Sweet Plantain Chips //

These are just delish! They’re naturally sweet {no sugar is added!}, perfectly crispy and they totally curb my sweet tooth. Just eating a few at a time is all I need. My favorite is dipping them into guacamole!!! SO GOOD. Shop them via Amazon HERE.

Norwegian Crispbread //

These crackers come in both a regular and gluten-free version but you heard it hear first:  either way you go, they are addicting!!! It’s seedy ingredients, including sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds, in addition to oat flakes, rice bran, honey and more come together to create an epic cracker that’s perfect as a stand alone snack or as the base for really whatever you can think of! My fave is topping a few of these babies with jelly for breakfast. Also so so good with avocado and balsamic. Mmmmm. Shop the whole grain version {read: not gluten free!} via Amazon HERE.

Hummus with Freshly Ground Horseradish //

A longggggggtime favorite of mine, this hummus is like non-other! If you like horseradish, you will LOVE this as it has the perfect amount of kick. Paired with any vegetable is my usual and preferred way of eating it. Can you say YUM {and healthy!!}?!

Gone Berry Crazy Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pieces //

Frozen chocolate covered fruit… didn’t even have to think when I first spotted these in the freezer aisle of my local TJ’s. Obviously the box went into my cart immediately! My whole family loves them {maybe a little too much!} and while they’re justifiable to have for dessert every once in a while {I say this because they’re covered with DARK chocolate!!} I could literally eat the whole box in one sitting. Not saying I do, but I could – they are just that good!!!

Organic Maple Syrup //

Brody loves this syrup {there are actually two versions and we like both!} and pours it almost daily atop his breakfast pancakes. It’s made with pure maple leaves and no added ingredients which is a major plus! Even better, it’s priced really well for the quality at $7.99 for a 12 fluid oz. bottle. A good staple to have in the house and stock up on!

Rice Pudding //

I know you can literally buy rice pudding anywhere but something about the Trader Joe’s version I simply love! It’s decadent and one of my favorite after dinner treats. Topped with some cinnamon = seriously the best!

Dutch Smoked Gouda Cheese //

OMG if you like gouda cheese, this smoked version is EVERYTHING!!!!!! I’ve been a big fan of it for years and it never grows old on me. I love it cold and even by itself but paired with crackers or in sandwiches, this legit will take whatever you’re eating to the next level! {pro tip: it’s always a huge hit when adding it to your cheese plate while entertaining guests… buy extra!}

Some other honorable mentions that you can find at TJ’s which my boys and I love are their reduced sodium salami packs {Brody is a HUGE fan of these slices!!}, their lollypops, their 100 calorie chocolate sticks, their jicama sticks {errr, we call them jicama fries lol}, their Everything But the Bagel seasoning and their coconut water. All amazing! Also want to note that I just found out that they recently came out with a gluten free mac & cheese which I can’t wait to try!!!
