new at Trader Joe's, cookies
Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s

Holiday seasons usually bring family gatherings, and family gatherings usually bring stresses about who’ll cook or bake what. Trader Joe’s I Dream of Chocolate Cake might just be a saving grace. It’s chocolatey layers will likely go down well with most guests (and hosts). Plus, it’s only $6.99. Now that’s dreamy!

Chili Weather

Trader Joe’s

Bring a taste of your fave Chinese restaurant home with this $3.99 jar of goodness. The subtle spiciness of Chili Onion Crunch is sure to warm your insides (most notably, your stomach lining) while the garlic and onion blend makes it complimentary to pretty much anything. Well, we can’t personally imagine it on cereal, who are we to judge?


Got Milk?

New at Trader Joe's, oat milk cartons next to glasses
Trader Joe’s

No, actually, we’ve got a dairy-fee alternative. The perfect substitute for vegan or lactose-intolerant drinkers, this creamy Oat Beverage is great in smoothies, lattes, tea blends and bowls of your preferred cereal. It comes in two sizes too, so little and large households are covered. Grab for $2.29/$3.99 depending on which size you opt for.


Color Me Surprised

New at Trader Joe's, product bag with carrots on either side
Trader Joe’s

Colorful snacks are appealing to both kids and adults alike. But usually the more colorful, the more artificial additions. Not with these Organic Dehydrated Carrots, where the only flavoring is a sprinkle of sea salt. These are healthy for both body and wallet at $2.99 per resealable bag.


I Scream, You Scream…

New at Trader Joe's; white ice cream with ginger cookies in a bowl
Trader Joe’s

Not in a horror movie way, in a dairy way. As in, we’re screaming for ice cream. Maple Ginger Cookie Swirl Ice Cream, to be exact. And at $2.99, the price is pretty tasty, too. Mmmmmmmm…


The Soup of the Season

New at Trader Joe's; a bowl of orange soup beside three white pumpkins and the soup jar
Trader Joe’s

Soup is the best way to warm your body, heart, and soul. And you can do all of that in the most autumnal manner thanks to Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bisque. Pick up a 25-ounce jar at your nearest store for $3.99.


Move Aside, Banana Bread

New at Trader Joe's, loaf of sliced bread on cutting board with knife and cream
Trader Joe’s

Maple Streusel Bread is here and it looks like banana bread’s more on-trend sister. Is it really a bread, or is it more of a cake? You’ll have to sink your teeth in to confirm. Grab a loaf for just $3.99.


Coffee, But Make it Autumn

New at Trader Joe's, red mug of coffee beside cookie, coffee spoon and coffee pack
Trader Joe’s

Pumpkin spice lattes not your thing? Not to worry, you can still get your fall caffeine fix thanks to the new Autumn Maple Coffee ($7.99). You can’t get anymore autumnal than that. No, really, you can’t. It literally says ‘autumn’ in the name.


We’re Jammin’

New at Trader Joe's, stack of pancakes beside a fork and some apple slices
Trader Joe’s

Sugar, spice, and all things…cider? Trader Joe’s Apple Cider Jam looks like apple pie in a jar. The thick, spreadable jam is made of apple cider, apple chunks, and a variety of spices (including apple’s biggest complimenter, cinnamon). Available for $3.99.


A Snack That’s Poppin’

New at Trader Joe's, popcorn spilled on floor beside popcorn packet
Trader Joe’s

It would be fair to assume that at some point in your life, you’ve probably eaten buttery popcorn. You’ve likely tried toffee popcorn, too. Hey, maybe you’ve even given chocolate and popcorn a go. But have you ever had Maple & Sea Salt Kettle Corn? We doubt it, and we think you should. Grab a bag for $2.49.


A Drink Sweet as (Pumpkin) Pie

New at Trader Joe's, brew bottle beside two cups and surrounded by lots of mini pumpkins
Trader Joe’s

Not everybody enjoys a holiday drinking streak. If you’re looking for the bottle-in-hand and bubbles-in-mouth effect but want to skip the headaches that often follow, try Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ginger Brew ($2.99). It’s a non alcoholic sparkling beverage that’s fit for the season.


Holy Sheet

New at Trader Joe's; large pumpkin wearing a face mask and head wrap beside skincare products
Trader Joe’s

Just when you thought we were done writing about Trader Joe’s many, many pumpkin products, we add the most surprising to the list. Pumpkin Spice Biocellulose Face Mask is friendly to both your skin and the environment. The sheet itself is made of a lab-created compostable material (Biocellulose), so you can relax without feeling guilty for enjoying some single-use skincare. The mask also aligns with the contours of your face more securely, bringing the natural ingredient-packed serum into closer contact with your skin. Get ’em before they’re gone at $2.99 each.


Buns Out

New at Trader Joe's; waffles topped with cream and spread beside spread jar, forks and bowl of cream
Trader Joe’s

Cinnamon buns = great. Cinnamon buns in a jar = better, because then you can make things that aren’t cinnamon buns taste like cinnamon buns. That’s exactly what Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Bun Spread does. For a $3.49 jar, you get all the flavor without the bun.


Spill the Spiced Chai

New at Trader Joe's, short stack of pancakes topped with syrup beside fork and tea jar
Trader Joe’s

Making at-home spiced chai lattes has never been easier thanks to the new Spiced Chai Black Tea Concentrate bottles ($2.49). Just mix with hot water or milk, stir, and you’re good to go. Orrrr if the above picture tickles your appetite, use the mixture as a substitute for plain water during your usual pancake-making routine. Spiced chai pancakes? Count us in.

I Scream, But Lighter This Time

New at Trader Joe's, two tubs and bowls of ice cream beside each other

But most impressively, it’s free from harmful and drying parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and surfactants, which isn’t usually the case for store-bought haircare. Salon quality for $3.99!


Made Down Under

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch…

New at Trader Joe's; dip bowl surrounded by burritos and cherry tomatoes

Ranch dip needs buttermilk to be ranch dip, right? Wrong! Substitute buttermilk for a coconut cream base, add the usual seasonings and you’ve got Vegan Ranch Dip. Thicker than dressing, it’s the perfect companion to burgers, nachos and more. Tubs are available for $3.49.


When Life Gives You Blueberries…

New at Trader Joe's; two blueberry muffins, a bowl of blueberries and the muffin packaging

A Chocolate Surprise

New at Trader Joe's; bowl of chocolate hummus surrounded by apple slices, strawberries and banana chips
Trader Joe’s

We know, this sounds weird. But don’t knock something ’til you’ve tried it! Texture-wise, Chocolate Hummus is just like regular hummus. But it’s sweeter…and it’s chocolate. Garlic and eggplant have exited the building in favor of cocoa and sugar to make the perfect dipping partner for fruit. Try it out for $1.99 a tub.


Spice Up Your Life

New at Trader Joe's; taco standing beside bowl of peppers with taco sauce bottle in background
Trader Joe’s

Tacos, burritos, and nachos, oh my! Mexican food is great, especially when paired with spicy sauce. But taco sauce needn’t be exclusive to tacos. Or Mexican food, for that matter.

A Taste of the Sea…from Brooklyn

New at Trader Joe's; bowl of topped pita chips beside bag of pita chips
Trader Joe’s

Pita bread is yum. Pita chips are yummier. But Pita chips made with organic ingredients have a snacking power that appeals to the masses. Baked in Brooklyn, NY, Organic Pita Chips with Sea Salt make for a healthier substitute than nachos. Their subtle saltiness also allows for them to be eaten straight from the bag with or without dip. Available for $2.29.


Do as the Romans Do
