There’s a bit of everything at Trader Joe’s this month — from cozy winter goods to perky springtime pick-me-ups. Here’s what I’m putting in my cart. 

Super Seedy Cheese Snack Bites, $3.49

These bites are like if cacio e pepe was made into a portable Parmesan crisp, packed with a floral kick of whole black peppercorns.

White Truffle Popcorn, $3.29

Personally, I think truffle makes everything more elevated, and this popcorn's no exception. It delivers the perfect amount of truffle flavor.

Sparkling Blueberry & Pomegranate Apple Cider Vinegar Beverage, $1.69

This flavor is full-on fruit-dominant. I’ll definitely be stocking up on this as an ideal night-cap.

Cracked Olive Salad, $3.49

Crack open this jar for an impromptu meal with goat cheese-shmeared crostini, and let me tell you — this jar is worth its weight in gold.

Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Almond Pesto Sauce, $3.99 

This jarred stuff is just as good as homemade pesto, if not better! Try it swirled into soups.

Sweet Cannoli Dip, $3.99

Get ready to dollop this cannoli filling to everything. It goes great with Trader Joe’s Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins or as an ice cream base. 

Coffee & Cocoa, $9.99

The coffee itself is a traditional medium roast blended with unsweetened cocoa powder, giving it a subtle chocolatey finish.
