One of my favorite things about Trader Joe’s — besides the prices, of course — is that I’m always finding new things that make meals so much easier. I’ve already written about their super-smart açaí packets that make breakfast smoothies better, and then this past weekend I discovered this crispbread that makes the most magical lunches (just add crème fraîche and smoked salmon — also from Trader Joe’s.)

There are so many things to look at and choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the grocery aisles. That’s why it’s always good to have some sense of what you’re getting — or what’s worth it — before you go. To mark the 50th anniversary of Trader Joe’s, everyone’s favorite grocery store shared the 50 top products according to customers and crew members. Do you recognize any favorites?

You can see their full list of popular products in this week’s Fearless Flyer (August 14, 2017). On the left side of the flyer you’ll see a bunch of sections which highlight the various types of products that made the list — Bakery, Snacks & Sweets, Cheese, etc.

The list of 50-plus products were honestly a little bit surprising to me. There are some all-star products that always make the lists, like Mandarin Orange Chicken and Triple Ginger Snaps, but then other wildly popular products like the cookie butter spread were nowhere to be found. I did learn about some products that I need to try next time I shop at Trader Joe’s, including this Unexpected Cheddar and the Cold Pressed Matcha Green Tea Lemonade.
