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 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.

Trader Joe's Organic Unsweetened Flake Coconut

In the baking aisle, the most commonly found coconut is sweetened, shredded coconut. This soft, fluffy coconut is and was the gold standard for baking. But it isn’t the only coconut option out there.

Trader Joe's Butter-Flavored Cooking Spray, reviewed

Cooking spray is a wonderful thing to have on hand in the kitchen.
