I posted about this pasta earlier on in the week when I made the Cheeseburger Casserole. I wanted to mention it again because it really was good and I think it’s a great option for those who are gluten-free. You can’t tell that it’s corn pasta once it’s cooked. Sure it looks a little yellow but you can’t tell from the flavor at all! A bag of this was about $1.60 something. That is VERY reasonable for gluten-free pasta especially from what I have noticed when I wanted to try it. This is a great find!
Trader Joe’s PB & J Milk Chocolate Bar
I had seen this bar appear on several blogs lately and I thought it sounded way too good to walk past in the store. Lucky for me it was only 99 cents!! That was a deal especially since Mike and I are planning on splitting the bar together. I like that it has peanut butter and raspberry jelly in it. I’m not a huge fan of raspberry but I think in jelly form, it tastes good. I haven’t tried this yet but I am dying to see how good it is!
Trader Joe’s Quinoa & Black Bean Tortilla Chips
These are brand new chips that just came out from Trader Joe’s! When I saw that they were made with Quinoa and Black Beans, I knew that I had to try them. They look delicious and I think they would be great paired with a flavorful salsa or my favorite choice, guacamole! I haven’t opened these yet but I am really excited to try them! I like finding unique flavored chips or products and this one sounds like it will be great.
Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi
I have posted a million times about the Sweet Potato Gnocchi. This is Mike’s favorite product from the entire Trader Joe’s store! Every time I go in there, I always grab a package of this because I know it’s Mike’s favorite. It’s REALLY good! I really love the butter and sage sauce that is on the sweet potato gnocchi. It’s the perfect portion for two people as long as you have some sides to go with it. I hate the packaging. It makes it difficult to cook but I have found, if you run the package under hot water for a few minutes to loosen things up before opening the package, it makes it easier. Definitely pick this up the next time you are in Trader Joe’s!
Trader Joe’s Wheat-Free Toaster Waffles
I always keep a box of waffles stashed in the freezer for emergencies. You can have waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are versatile and they quick and easy! I love that about them. I’ve never tried these Wheat Free waffles but they were only $1.99 and I couldn’t pass that up. I’m sure that they taste good. I’m looking forward to trying them.
Trader Joe’s Ginger Chews
Now before I say anything about these ginger chews, no, I am not pregnant! I picked these up to try to see if they would help settle my stomach. I’ve heard that ginger is very good for the stomach and I am willing to try anything these days. I tried only one and I thought it was interesting. It was very spicy! I found myself wanting to chug a gallon of water after trying this. I don’t know if it helped or not and I’ve been scared to try another one. I guess I will try it again or just keep it around for when I do need it.
Now I’m going to mention a product that is not from Trader Joe’s.
This is a brand new product called Pop Crunch! Melissa and my mom picked a bag of this up for me as part of my birthday present and I haven’t been able to put it down! It’s that good. I absolutely love caramel corn and this was very similar except it has brown sugar and cinnamon flavoring! So good!! It comes in a few other flavors: White & Sharp Cheddar Mix, Cheddar & Caramel Mix, and Parmesan Herb Mix. I think the flavor that I have sounds the best personally!
So there you have it! My Trader Joe’s and one random product edition. Have you tried any of these products? Which product would you most want to try?
Have a great Friday!
