12 of the Best Snacks at Trader Joe's
Whether you're plopping down on the couch and need something to munch on or you're road-tripping, the moment calls for something sweet, salty, crunchy, or maybe even gummy. We consulted POPSUGAR editors to pull together the best snacks at Trader Joe's.
Raisin Rosemary Crisps ($4)
The most perfect blend of sweet and savory. Really good with a soft cheese or just on their own; I have to cut myself off so I don't polish off the whole box in one sitting!
Dried Pitted Tart Montmorency Cherries ($5)
Most dried cherries on the market are sweet cherries, like bing. Not these; they pack tons of tart, juicy flavor. I like to add them to oatmeal cookies or a sweet snack mix of bittersweet chocolate chips and slivered almonds, or I eat them straight.
Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups ($4)
So creamy and delicious. Hands down, 1,000 times better than Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Powerberries Trek Mix ($5)
The Powerberries Trek Mix is my go-to snack. I never feel guilty munching on the mix of chewy dark-chocolate-coated fruit pieces and crunchy nuts.
Dark-Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Slims ($3)
These are salty, sweet, chocolaty, and perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. I have made myself stop buying them, because I eat them too fast.
Mesquite Smoked Almonds
I was recently introduced to these smoky, addictive almonds at a party, and I immediately rushed out to grab a bag. Pro tip: this perfect snack tastes best straight out of the fridge so the seasoning doesn't get all over your fingers.
White Cheddar Popcorn ($2)
I grew up eating tons of white-cheddar popcorn, so popping open a bag paves the way to instant nostalgia. It's impossible not to scarf this umami-rich popcorn by the fistful.
Wild Salmon Jerky ($6)
OK, this stuff isn't for the faint of heart, but if you're a fan of fish, you'll love the sweet-salmony chews. I will definitely be bringing these on my next camping trip.
Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds ($4)
Roasted almonds drenched in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt and turbinado sugar . . . Need I say more?!
Chili Spiced Mango ($2)
These are pretty much on par with all of my favorite Mexican candies; you really can't beat the spicy-sweet combo.
Stone Ground Wheat Crackers ($2)
TJ's has really good stone ground wheat thins (my favorite cracker on the planet).
Roasted and Salted Marcona Almonds With Rosemary ($6)
Salty and perfectly-roasted, Trader Joe's rosemary marcona almonds rival those sold at specialty food stores at a price that's easier to swallow.
