April 15, 20233 min read
As a self-professed Trader Joe’s snack connoisseur, it’s my duty to let my peers know the absolute best snacks TJ has to offer. This holy-grail list is the result of careful consideration and years of sideline snacking on my part. These are the best Trader Joe’s products to accompany you on long, tiring days around the water. Whether you’re sitting at the edge of the pool cheering on your teammates or heading for a long day at the beach, these products are sure to take your snacking game to the next level.
1. Baked Cheese Crunchies
I may not be a big fan of Cheetos but these “crunchies” sure do have my heart. But be careful, they’re addicting! These crunchy snacks lack that artificial cheese taste and instead taste like the real thing. Cheese lovers, this one’s for you! These go perfectly with the Sparkling Watermelon Juice (see below)…
2. Sparkling Watermelon Juice
This is the perfect juice/soda drink for anyone who wishes sparkling water could be just a teeny bit sweeter…
Every sip of the juice will have you feel like you’re lying on a hammock on a tropical beach, soaking in the sun. Plus, this juice lacks the overwhelming amounts of sugar and corn syrup present in soda alternatives. TJ has perfectly combined everyone’s love for watermelon and sweet drinks into one great package.
3. Cookie Thins
I promise you that these are the most addictive cookies you will ever eat on the planet. DO NOT be fooled, they may look small but I CHALLENGE you to not eat a whole box in one sitting.
They also come in ginger flavor and those are just as good!
I promise – after five minutes you’ll devour the whole box and head to TJ’s for some more.
4. Health-Ade Kombucha
Okay – so I am not usually one for Kombucha as they tend to be a bit sour. But this one has definitely stolen my heart. It doesn’t have the same “kombucha-ish”, sour taste like other brands. Kombucha is also naturally carbonated and probiotic and is a healthier alternative to other drinks like soda.
Health-Ade kombucha doesn’t have the overwhelming scent fermented Kombucha usually has, and it actually tastes like the flavor it is intended to be. My personal favorite is the Rose-flavoured one; I can’t describe it as anything other than drinking good-scented rose perfume but in the best way possible.
5. Soft + Juicy Dried Mango
If you are an avid Trader Joe’s fan then I am sure you have come across these tasty mango slices at least once in your life. They are a STAPLE of the Trader Joe’s diet and I can never leave the store without buying these. They’re a two-in-one combination of dry and juicy. They taste almost like candy but without the unnecessary coloring and crazy amount of sugar!
6. Mini Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
I swear… Trader Joe’s has found out some sort of hack that makes their chocolate taste phenomenal. I cannot wait until the day I find out what it is… These are, again, so addicting but SO good. The peanut butter melts quickly as you pop a few cups into your mouth. It brings me back to my childhood Halloween experience as I scoured the neighborhood for families giving out Reece’s chocolate cups.
