Cocoa Peppermint-Flavored Almond Creamer
Dairy-free dieters, rejoice! We have finally gotten our hands on a plant-based coffee creamer that is actually creamy. Forget the other dairy-free creamers that seem to just water down your morning cup of joe, and snag a container of this instead.
One of our staffers said although they’re not usually a fan of almond milk creamers, this one was really tasty and had a good holiday flavor that wasn’t overpowering.
Mini Gingerbread Men With White Fudge Icing
Everyone loved these sweet and spicy cookies, especially when dipped in coffee with the cocoa-peppermint creamer. While they sound extremely indulgent, one serving size has only 120 calories, 4.5 grams of fat and 10 grams of sugar. There are only three large cookies in a serving, but most commented that was plenty to satisfy a sweet craving. For those who don’t usually like gingerbread cookies, this might be a good option with the added hint of sweetness from the icing.
This was one of the most surprising treats, as everyone who tried the dairy-free nog enjoyed it, some even more so than traditional eggnog. It is creamy and sweet enough to feel indulgent, but it has a significantly improved nutritional profile from classic cow’s milk versions. Compared to Trader Joe’s traditional eggnog, this Almond Nog had 130 fewer calories, 7.5 fewer fat grams, and had 12 fewer grams of sugar. The eggnog also had 5g of saturated fat, and the almond version had zero. Swapping your eggnog for this from now on seems like a no-brainer!

Cinnamon Croissant Toast & Other New Trader Joe’s Items We Can’t Get Enough Of
Try to name something more fun than roaming the aisles of Trader Joe’s after they’ve rolled out a whole bunch of new products. Can’t think of anything? Yeah, that’s probably because there is nothing better. We love Trader Joe’s and in fact, it is our deep and undying love for Trader Joe’s that makes us so excited to bring you this news: Trader Joe’s has announced some seriously delicious new products for 2019. But don’t worry we’ve saved you a whole lot of trouble by putting everything you need to know about their best new treats into one convenient list.
So grab a pen and paper (or your cell phone &mdash or whatever you use to make your grocery list) and check out all our favorite new items from Trader Joe’s.
1. Cinnamon Croissant Loaf
Lots of people (myself included) grew up with cinnamon toast. The sweet and spiced sandwich bread was a breakfast staple, though it was also the perfect midafternoon snack. But TJ’s just took this basic bread to the next level. Trader Joe’s new Cinnamon Croissant Loaf is the updated classic we didn’t know we needed. So break out the butter or your favorite French toast recipe because this “airy, buttery” bread is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
2. Pancake Bread
Breakfast just got a lot more exciting thanks to Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread. According to the packaging, the bread is about 15 ounces in size and is &ldquoa twist on a buttermilk short stack, baked into a sweet, moist loaf.&rdquo And while we’re not sure whether we should warm this product or eat it straight out of the container, we’re willing to bet a slice of this would be delicious slathered in butter… or dipped in maple syrup.
3. Pimento cheese
Pimento cheese is a Southern staple. Part cheddar, part mayonnaise and part pimento &mdash plus whatever else the cook throws in &mdash this cheese is great on sandwiches and as a dip. Or you know, just on its own. No judgment.
4. Cave-aged Spanish cheese
According to Delish, Trader Joe’s will releasing a new cheese similar to manchego in April however, instead of being made from sheep’s milk, the product from Spain’s La Mancha region will blend sheep, cow and goat milk.
5. Fruit & Nut (& Other Stuff) Crisps
These crisps were actually inspired by everyone’s least-favorite holiday dessert: fruit cake. But hear us out because they may have been inspired by the traditional holiday black sheep, but they definitely don’t taste like it. These crisps contain almonds, dried apricots, dried cherries, dried cranberries, flaxseeds, poppy seeds and orange oil. They’re perfect for topping with your favorite Trader Joe’s cheese, dip or jam.
6. Shredded Unexpected Cheddar
We’ve got to be honest with y’all. The name here had us confused. I mean, what the heck is “Unexpected Cheddar”? Is it cheese at all? Well, according to Tara Miller, marketing director for Trader Joe’s and co-host of the Inside Trader Joe’s podcast, the cheese (yes, cheese) “is cheddar with a hint of Parmesan. The result is a salty, nutty cheese that’s sure to surprise your taste buds.” Yum!
7. Mandarin orange chicken bowl
Trader Joe’s heat-and-eat meals are the bomb. Their flatbreads are full of flavor, and their Hatch chili mac and cheese is to die for. But if you’re looking for something new, be sure to check out the Mandarin orange chicken bowl. It sounds delicious.
8. New scented candles
Many people love scented candles. They add “essence” to an otherwise bland room &mdash and mask unpleasant odors. But did you know Trader Joe’s offers its own line of scented candles? And at $4 a tin, you can stock up on countless foodie flavors, including this year’s addition, lemon cookie.
9. Jackfruit Cakes
Jackfruit is the new go-to for people looking to give this whole vegetarian thing a try. The texture is very similar to shredded meat, and it absorbs whatever flavor you add to it. These cakes are supposed to resemble crab cakes, which will make them perfect for all your summer get-togethers.
10. Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread
If you like Trader Joe’s famous pumpkin cream cheese, then chances are you are going to go crazy for this new Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Cream Cheese. We love slathering it all over a freshly toasted blueberry bagel.
The ginger is strong with these. Their white fudge icing brings to mind the frosted animal crackers that made you the envy of the middle school cafeteria. Bonus: A 12-line poem on the back will keep you occupied as you tear through the whole box.
You don't walk into Trader Joe's thinking, I'm going to get me a panettone. You're more focused on cheap giant bags of oats and 18-cent bananas. And that's exactly what makes this holiday staple all the more impressive: It's a sleeper champion, surprisingly flavorful and fluffy, and the miniature one works equally well as a gift or an afternoon snack. Plus, it would make an incredible French toast. Thank you, Trader Giotto's.
4. Riced Cauliflower Stuffing
Coming back to the frozen aisle this year: the keto- and paleo-friendly Riced Cauliflower Stuffing. If you're looking for a healthy side dish to add to your Thanksgiving table (or to nosh on ahead of the holiday), look no further.
Here's an appetizer for someone who harbors a secret love of mozzarella sticks but wants something a little fancier for a holiday meal. The brie is stuffed into a light, flaky pastry crust, and it's perfect for dipping. Serve it with crackers, fruit, veggies or anything else that tastes yummy doused in cheese (that's pretty much everything, if you ask us).

If you&aposre working from home right now like we are, hearty options like this elevated frozen macaroni and cheese help you actually take a delicious lunch break. "I buy these three at a time so my freezer is always stocked," says Sheena Chihak, digital senior food editor. "Sometimes you just want to eat like a kid, but thanks to the addition of hatch chiles in the mix, this is way better than basic mac and cheese." She enjoys her mac as a side or entrພ by adding whatever leftover protein is in the fridge.
This little jar of seasoning has quite the fan club these days, and we&aposre definitely a part of that club. "I&aposm not exaggerating when I say I use this seasoning every single day. It tastes just like a classic everything bagel without being too overpowering," says Emily VanSchmus, digital assistant editor of holidays and entertaining. It really goes on, well, everything, but VanSchmus likes to "sprinkle it on egg whites to spice up a healthy breakfast or use it to make a savory at-home avocado toast."

Poinsettias are a classic winter holiday decoration, which is kind of odd since they are actually from Mexico and thrive in the heat. If you live in a warm climate where the temperature consistently stays above 45ଏ in the winter, these would be gorgeous on your porch or lining a sidewalk. If you live in a cold environment, line them on a mantle. The big ones will set you back $13, and the little ones are just $4.
11. Trader Joe&rsquos Spice Market Gift Box &ndash $9.99
This curated collection of seasonings features 5 of TJ&rsquos most popular seasoning blends, including the award-winning Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. They&rsquore packaged together in a box perfect for gift-giving and would make an excellent present for anyone with a kitchen!
