My Picks From Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer

Every month(? actually I’m not sure how regularly they send these out), TJs sends out their newsletter of new and recommended products. I looooove it. Their products are usually so good and cheap! Yeah, if you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s I feel sorry for you. I have 2 within 5 mins of where I live and also another 2 that are 5 mins from where I work. Heaven! Anyways, here are my picks from their most recent newsletter which is holiday themed.

Dark Chocolate Belgian Truffles $3.99 – I’ve been looking for a less pricy alternative to Godiva’s. We’ll see if these can compare. For the price, it doesn’t really matter though! From the newsletter: The fillings are coated with a solid chocolate shell and then finished with a generous dusting of toasted almond flakes, buttery, crisp crepe cookies, white chocolate shavings or sprinkles of dark chocolate. These would make great gifts for coworkers!

Nonalcoholic Holiday Sparklers $2.29 – I love martinelli’s so I’m sure I’ll love these. They come in blueberry, pomegranate, or cranberry.

Salami made with wine $3.99 – I love trying anything new and this salami infused with wine (chianti or pinot grigio) sounds yummy! I can’t wait to try this with boyrobot who loves salami.

Cranberry Apple Chutney $2.29 – Even though Thanksgiving just passed, I don’t feel like I got my fill of cranberry sauce. This might just hit the spot on my next turkey sandwich!

Angus Cheeseburger & BBQ Pork Sliders $4.99 – I don’t know what it is but food that is a smaller version of the real thing just makes me want to eat it even more! I love sliders so I’m quite happy to find out they are stocking these now. Can’t wait to put some in my fridge.

Mini Biscotti With Cranberry & Pistachio $6.99 – Ok, I’m not sure if it’s the “mini” part or the fact that I love cranberries and pistachios that draw me to these biscottis. They are also supposedly made a bit softer than your typical biscotti. Can’t wait to try these.

Ok, I think those are my main picks but there are tons of other things that interest me. The way they describe each product makes it sounds so scrumptious and of such good quality that I want to try them all. If you’d like to see the rest of the newsletter, you can do so at their website (bottom left corner).

Yeah, that’s the worst part about TJs. luckily one of the ones near my work is not that crowded! esp if you go at the right time. I don’t think i could shop there as often if I had to only go to the ones near my apt. i hate crowds!!
