Trader Joe's Pantry Staples: What Are Your Favorites?

Open our cupboard on any given day and you're likely to find that at least half of our pantry staples come from none other than Trader Joe's. For price and overall quality, Trader Joe's usually has our regular grocery store beat, hands down. We don't get to TJ's every week, but we make sure to stock up when we do!We seem to discover something new every time we go to Trader Joe's. We give these new products a try, and more often than not, they get added to our growing list of pantry staples we buy on each visit. Here's what our list looks like these days:

Canned and Jarred Foods
Diced Tomatoes
Roasted Red Peppers
Pizza Sauce
Barbecue Sauce
Kalamata Olives
Honey
Vinegars
