As anyone who has gone to Trader Joe's knows, it isn't your average grocery store. Sure, Trader Joe's stocks standard grocery supplies of dairy, meat, vegetables, and grains — but the relatively cheap prices and exclusive specialty products justify the long lines for this grocery store.
Recently Trader Joe's released its customers' choices for their top 25 favorite products of 2013. How many of these delicious things have you tried?
Here's the top ten:
- Triple Ginger Snaps
- Speculoos Cookie Butter
- Joe Joe’s Cookies (All Varieties)
- Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole
- Charles Shaw Wine (All Varieties)
- Pumpkin Coffee *
- Mac ‘n Cheese
- Pumpkin Butter *
- Almond Butter (All Varieties)
- Pumpkin Pecan Instant Oatmeal *
Does anything surprise you? Two Buck Chuck and Joe Joe's seem to align pretty well with what we expected, but we were a bit surprised to see ginger snaps and pumpkin coffee riding so high. (But then, pumpkin spice, well, it did take over the world that one time.)
I've only tried five of the items on this list: the ginger snaps, cookie butter, Joe Joe's cookies, the guacamole, and the Charles Shaw wine. Obviously, I need to catch up! My personal favorite products from Trader Joe's are the bulk dried fruit and nuts (especially the banana chips). What about you?
