I stopped by Trader Joes over the weekend and couldn't help but pick up a few staple items along with some fun Christmas snacks, and a few other items I've been wanting to try. Truthfully, it was pretty picked over by the time I got there so I wasn't able to stock up on all of the things I wanted, but I was still able to get some of my favorites and some new favorites!
Sesame Crunch Chopped Salad Kit
This is my go to salad kit, especially for busy work weeks! I can usually get 1-2 meals out of one bag so it's a meal planning dream because I don't have to think about what I'm brining for lunch.
I love coconut milk or creamer in coffee but I've been having such a hard time finding one that isn't packed full of sugar. I've heard great things about this one and decided to give it a try. If you like the taste of coconut this is a great option. I wouldn't say it's my favorite creamer, but it's pretty good.
Milk Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels
These are my absolutely favorite snack. Sure, they aren't the healthiest option, but they are so good! I'm a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter, plus I love pretzels so it should be no surprise that I love these! I grab them almost every time I go to Trader Joes.
Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets
For those who don't want the added chocolate, these peanut butter pretzels are great! I love keeping them in my office as a snack for work, the only problem is I have to force myself to stop eating them some days!
Cookie Butter Spread
This was a complete impulse buy. I've heard great things about it but I've never tried it, so naturally I figured now was as good a time as any to try it out!
Phigment Red Wine Blend
My go-to Trader Joe's red wine has been out of stock for weeks, so I've been on the hunt for another one that I like. This one was affordable and people seemed to be reaching for it every time I walked by the wine rack so I decided to give it a shot. It was pretty good for a wine that's under $10. Sure, it's not my favorite, but it'll do until my go-to is back in stock.
Trader Joe's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
This is another bottle I picked up in the hopes of finding a good back up choice. I haven't opened it yet so I'm not sure how it is but I'll keep you posted on my Instagram.
I pick up flowers every single time I go into Trader Joe's. Sometimes I pick up a few different ones and make my own arrangements and other times (like this past trip) I pick up a pre-made arrangement. Either way, they're a great way to cheer me up after a long week, or the perfect addition to my dining room table.
Peppermint Pretzel Slims
I really can't help myself when it comes to peppermint and pretzels so of course I had to pick these up and give them a try! Safe to say these are being added to my Christmas snack staples list! The only downside is that I could eat the entire bag in one sitting.
Cookie Mug Hangers
How cute! I saw these and knew I had to buy them! I think they're such a cute, festive item and I can't wait to try them out! These would also be a great secret Santa, white elephant, stocking stuff type of gift.
Gingerbread House Kit
Alright, this kit is super cute, but it didn't last long. Partially because I am horrible when it comes to making icing and also because I'm not patient enough for gingerbread houses. Bottom line, its a cute and affordable gingerbread house kit and its a fun activity, especially if you've got some little kids in the house.
Dark Chocolate Mint Stars
There's nothing better than Thin Mints, but these are a great substitute! Also, the star shapes are fun and festive. So why not grab a box?
It was a quick trip this time around, but I'm excited that I found a few new items and a few staple snacks too! Do you have favorite snacks or foods from Trader Joe's?
