For this week’s Friday Five, I decided to switch things up and give you my five favorite items from Trader Joe’s! I have a post coming up with my favorite products from TJ that are Weight Watchers-friendly. These are exclusive of that- just my top five buys from everyone’s favorite grocery store. I did try to link you to online purchases when available- just be mindful that the online price is often more than the in-store one. I know I can’t personally always get to a Trader Joe’s as the closest one to us is still a trek, so I stock up on Amazon when I need to.
1.) Coconut oil. I couldn’t survive the winter months without this product- I lather it on my feet and cover with socks at night to let my skin absorb the goodness. I used it on my baby bumps when I was pregnant, and people use it in their hair as a mask or to tame flyaways. This is the best one I’ve ever used- it’s organic and I’ve been using it for years.
2.) These marcona almonds. If you haven’t experienced a naked almond, I reckon to say it’ll change your life. The salt and rosemary add incredible flavor, making it really hard to not enjoy the whole bag in one sitting.
3.) These mini ice cream cones are a huge hit with my guys (including Mike). I love that they’re toddler-sized, so spills (and dessert intake) are minimal. We stock up every TJ trip on these- they are instant happymakers after dinnertime! Unfortunately they’re not available for online purchase, but I recommend you hunt them down in-store. We also love the mini ice cream sandwiches.
4.) I’ve posted about both of these before, but the spice aisle at Trader Joe’s is the best. We LOVE this everything bagel blend on our favorite Skinnytaste bagels, eggs, avocado toast, and shishito peppers. And I don’t think any meat has been prepared in my home in the last year that hasn’t been seasoned up with this one.
