4 New Trader Joe’s Items We Can’t Wait to Try
Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
This article originally appeared on RealSimple.com.
This creamy kid-friendly comfort food combines two of TJ’s fan favorites: classic Joe’s Diner Mac & Cheese and canned Organic Butternut Squash. To make the Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese, rigatoni pasta is tossed with three cheeses (Cheddar, Gouda, and Parmesan), a béchamel sauce, the squash puree, and a touch of nutmeg and sage. You can find it in the freezer aisle throughout the fall season.
To buy: $3 for 12-oz. package.
Pain Au Lait
Also known as “milk bread,” Pain au Lait is a slightly sweet, brioche-like roll that can be eaten any time of day. We bet it’s delicious warmed and spread with salted butter and jam, dunked in rich hot chocolate, or as the base to a pulled pork sandwich. Buy two packs, and freeze one for next week.
To buy: $3 for pack of 8.
Organic Cranberry Spiked Apple Kombucha
‘Tis the season for festive kombucha flavors, and we can’t wait to get our hands on this Cranberry Spiced Apple version. It’s made with cranberry juice concentrate, apple juice concentrate, ginger juice, and cinnamon extract for a taste of fall with every sip. Plus, you can’t beat the Trader Joe’s price.
To buy: $3 for 16-oz. bottle.
Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones
Fall flavors are packed into every part of this mini ice cream treat, from the ginger in the cone to the nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and ginger-spiked pumpkin ice cream. The top is dipped in a white candy coating for a truly irresistible dessert.
