Top-Selling Trader Joe's Food Items

Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Food Item at Trader Joe's?

Trader Joe's Cilantro & Chive Yogurt DipFor more than three years, Trader Joe's has been YumSugar readers' favored grocery chain, and I'm just as big of a fan. In particular, I'm in love with the products unique to their stores, from lentil chips to fleur de sel caramel sauce. My preferred proprietary item, the Cilantro & Chive Yogurt Dip, even has a recipe for roast beef and arugula sandwiches to go along with it. That said, I'm sure I've missed more than a few good items in the aisles of my local Trader Joe's. What are your favorite food products to buy from TJ's? Do share with the rest of us.

I love EVERYTHING at Trader Joe's so much my kitchen practically looks like a TJ's store. Some of my favorite items that I eat daily - pomegranate greek yogurt with triple berry granola, honey pretzel sticks with the smooth and creamy spicy hummus, and of course their peppermint Joe O cookies (can we get those all year round please??).

I can't believe i forgot to mention their gyoza! Yummmy. We always have it on hand, used to prefer the chicken potstickrs but now believe the veggie are king :) They run out of them frequetly though! The frozen quesidillias are great to have on hand and my husband loves their chicken fried rice b/c it's cheap and quick. When I know I'm going to be out of town, I hit up their freezer section to ensure he doesn't go hungry while I'm gone ;) OH! And its seasonal, but THEIR PUMPKIN butter is to die for. I stock up and mix a bit in my greek yogurt or oatmeal or smoothie for breakfast. Its like having a slice of pumpkin pie....Just used up my last jar though,'s the one thing I can't make better homemade.

OMG... the canned organic low-sodium tomato bisque is the best soup I have ever tried in my life. It's ruined all other tomato soups for me. They also have these delicious chicken quesadillas in the freezer section that never last more then a day in my house. And then there's the chocolate drizzled lemon cookies... Ditto to the peanut butter pretzels, trail mix, hummus (with their fantastic pita crackers) and cheese. God I'm hungry.

Honey Sesame Sticks! I use them in place of croutons when I make my famous tortellini salad. My husband and I used to love the Blue Cheese Burgers but they are no longer there probably because they were a heart attack waiting to happen. I also liked the basil chicken sausage but that's a goner now too.

I love their Organic Cream Top Milk. Shake it up and enjoy the creamy goodness.

I love their Pound-Plus chocolate bars because it is an affordable upgrade for my chocolate chip/choc chunk cookies and my double chocolate ultimate cookies. Also many of their coffees are superb. Of course the Charles Swan wine is great and affodable for adding flavor to many of the main dishes I prepare. I so wish it wasn't a 4-hour round trip to the closest TJ's.

We have the Cilantro & Chive spread in Philadelphia. I really love their three-layer humus (red pepper, original, cilantro) and their frozen mac n' cheese.

Unsulfured, unsweetened dried mango, uncured turkey bacon, massive quantities of organic fair trade coffee and organic raisins. Best prices in town on all these items (well, and the mango is just delicious).

We always have tons of that frozen brown rice on hand. 3 minutes in the microwave. Can't beat that. We also love the pizza dough (although lately we've been making some killer pizza for the bbq), as well as the masala sauces, and red and yellow curries. Don't shop for wine all that much (we live in wine country so TJ's isn't our first choice when purchasing wine), but we've found a few good deals here and there. Also, an absolutely amazing blue cheese, which I can't remember the name of. But they always have pretty good cheese! Oh, and most of my orchids have come from TJ's. Good quality plant for a pretty good price.

JanetG0307, really? That is such a bummer. I didn't realize the SKUs aren't the same across the two coasts.

There is this one cheese, a smoked Gouda that my friend LOVES. He went vegetarian because his fiance is, but loves the taste of this cheese because it has a smokey meaty tasty. I have to admit, they have some yummy cheese there.

Yes, Susi, potstickers! And the veggie gyoza. If they ever stopped selling them I would probably starve.
