If there’s one thing that Trader Joe’s gets right, it’s the grocer’s ability to make a product that gets people talking. Between the latest dessert release of mini cheesecake cones and the recent return of fan-favorite strawberry lemonade ice bars, there appears to be no shortage of great options to choose from. And with years of trial and error under its belt in creating foods that keep the customers returning, it only makes sense that the latest product to be blowing up online would come from everybody’s favorite quirky grocery store. But who would’ve guessed that product would be corn chips? 

Trader Joe’s Organic Elote Corn Chip Dippers have been blowing up on Reddit. Described by one user as “absolutely delectable,” Elote Chips from Trader Joe’s are not entirely new to the grocery stores’ shelves, although their recent attention would make you think otherwise. 

Perhaps a sleeper snack, this is not your regular bag of corn chips. Featuring a properly deep scoop shape and covered in Mexican-style street corn-flavored seasoning, these bad boys are described by Trader Joe’s as offering a hint of chipotle, a kick of smoky heat, and a bit of buttermilk tang. If you ask us, this is one bag of chips that you’ll want to have all the dips handy for. 

“It’s like a Fritos Corn Chip and Doritos Cool Ranch had a love child,” described one fan. The nearly 10-ounce bag only costs around $2.49 depending on location. “I haven’t tried them with any dips yet and that’s a problem. They’re so good as is. I can’t imagine how amazing they’ll be with all these dip recommendations,” said another commenter. 

The nearly 10-ounce bag only costs around $2.49 depending on location. Do yourself a favor and make sure to head over to your local TJ’s with enough coin to grab some dip options, and maybe an extra bag of corn chips just to be safe. Happy snacking!
