Trader Joe's Favorites

Our love for Trader Joe’s is strong and we certainly have a few (actually, a lot of) favorites!

We use a lot of their products in our cooking, like for our turkey meatballs.

I have rounded up our Trader Joe’s favorites along with some of your favorites too!

Well it’s safe to say that John Paul’s favorite department in Trader Joe’s is the beer/wine section ;) Although, they do have a really nice selection!

Trader Joe’s is such a fun place to shop! We usually go in with a list that we need for the week and end up coming out with a few extras that peeked our interest.

We love stocking up on some unique things that we find in the freezer section for quick and easy meals during the week. We also love trying their samples because we tend to buy what they’re sampling since it’s delicious HA!

If you follow me on Instagram, I had asked for some of your favorite Trader Joe’s items and I received so many recommendations! Things we hadn’t tried before too and had to pick up to try them out.
