My Favorite Trader Joe's Products: Part 2

I don't get to Trader Joe's very often. There are multiple other groceries stores much closer to us than TJ's and more times than not my life is too busy to go out of my way for groceries. However, last weekend, Ryan and I found ourselves in Hanover and we decided to stop in TJ's to pick up a few favorites that we don't get very often. As soon as I set foot back in that store, I remembered why I love it so much. Trader Joe's has so many great and unique products! Apparently, I couldn't stay away for long because I made a special trip back out there on my day off yesterday morning to grocery shop for the week. I've blogged about my favorites from this store before but I'm back today to share a couple more must-haves from good ole Trader Joe's. 

Savory Thin Mini Crackers  

These guys were introduced to me by my friend and co-worker, Jill, last year and they were a game changer. Okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but they are really good. They make a great snack on their own or with cheese. 

Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce 

I literally stock up on this stuff every time we go. Pasta is a go-to on those lazy nights where I just don't feel like cooking much. You can throw just about anything into your pasta to beef it up and it'll taste 10x better with this tomato sauce. My favorites are shredded rotisserie chicken, peas, and mushrooms. Boom, dinner is served! 

Chocolatey Coated Chocolate Chip Dunkers 

These found their way into my basket for the first time not too long ago, but they quickly won both Ryan and me over. They are a great little store-bought cookie and I imagine would be pretty good dipped in hot chocolate or milk. 

Half-baked Ciabattini Rolls 

Ryan and I like our rolls to be cooked completely differently. I like mine soft (like almost uncooked) and Ryan likes his crispier. These Ciabattini rolls are the perfect balance because they're already half cooked. We can throw a couple in and take them out at different times depending on the way we like them cooked. Win Win! 

Pumpkin Croissants 

Last, but definitely not least, we've got the newest edition to my TJ's obsession list. When Uncle Dave and Aunt Carolyn were in town a few weeks ago, they brought these bad boys into the apartment. I was skeptical because I've never been a huge fan of flaky croissants, but my mind was quickly changed. I've bought these every time I've been back to TJ's since. They make the perfect, quick Saturday morning breakfast! 

There you have it folks! These products are just too good not to share with the world! Now, I'm off to petition Trader Joe's to pay me for all this advertising!
