Trader Joe’s Cherry Pie Filling, reviewed

Trader Joe's Cherry Pie Filling, reviewed

The jarred sweet cherries from Trader Joe’s are one of my favorite products. They’re not only delicious on their own, but they are a great base for cherry pies, cobblers, breads and other baked goods. Recently, Trader Joe’s introduced a Cherry Pie Filling that offers an even easier shortcut for those home bakers looking to make cherry desserts on the fly. While the jarred cherries ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Mango Joe-Joe’s, reviewed

Trader Joe's Mango Joe-Joe's, reviewed

Joe Joe’s, Trader Joe’s Oreo cookie cousin, are some of the best selling products at the grocery chain. The cookies come in classic chocolate and vanilla, as well as a variety of seasonal flavors. Unlike Oreos, however, they’re naturally flavored and seasonal flavors tend to be much more limited (Oreo seems to have one or two new flavors every season!). One of the latest releases ...

Trader Joe's Marshmallows

Frequent shoppers at Trader Joe’s will always notice when a new product hits the shelves. As a marshmallow fan – and someone who makes lots of s’mores themed desserts – I was very pleased to see that TJ’s was finally adding marshmallows to their lineup. The marshmallows are vegan, which means that they are not made with gelatin. Gelatin is the main ingredient that I ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros, reviewed

Churros have been a favorite treat of mine since childhood. Unlike cookies and cupcakes, which were relatively easy to come by on a daily basis, churros were the sort of treat that you could only find at the fair or at Disneyland. I’ll often stop by a churro stand when I spot one, no matter where in the world I am, and have been known ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Single Origin Huila Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, reviewed

Trader Joe's Single Origin Hula Unsweetened Baking Chocolate

Unsweetened chocolate is a common ingredient when it comes to baking because, like unsweetened cocoa powder, it imparts a deep, intense cocoa flavor to cakes, cookies and other treats. Since it does’t have any sugar in it, unsweetened chocolates have a bitterness to them that (generally) makes them unsuitable for general snacking and some people simply consider it to be of lower quality than other ...

Trader Joe’s Pecan Pie Filling in a Jar, reviewed

Trader Joe's Pecan Pie Filling, reviewed

Pecan pie is a staple at many Thanksgiving tables and a solid dessert option throughout the holiday season. The most traditional pecan pies are made with a lot of corn syrup and a lot of pecans, leading to a pie that has a sticky sweet base and a nutty, crunchy topping. Pecan pies are not difficult to make, but they are difficult to make well ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Panettone, reviewed

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Panettone

I just can’t seem to stop myself from buying every pumpkin and pumpkin spice item available at Trader Joe’s this season. I attribute this to the fact that I love pumpkin and pumpkin spice, as well as to the fact that I’ve rarely seen so many pumpkin-infused products in one place at one time before. Trader Joe’s went all-out this season, with everything from cookie ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup, reviewed

Trader Joe's Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup, reviewed

Wine, whiskey and other spirits have long been aged in wood barrels, but barrel aging is on-trend right now and that means that people are starting to experiment with aging different products. For instance, I’ve had barrel-aged beer and barrel-aged cocktails (and you can buy your own kits for doing this at home) at various restaurants and bars. But barrel aging doesn’t start and stop ...
