Trader Joe’s August Edition
I was going through Trader Joe’s withdrawal when the latest Fearless Flyer appeared in my mailbox. Here is what I got on my recent trip!
This was one of the items I was most excited to try and I really enjoyed the popcorn. The seasoning used to flavor the popcorn does remind me of popular Indian dishes like Chicken tikka masala, just like they described it in the flyer.
Green Tahini Dip and Sauce
They had samples of this dip on the day we visited and I love the herby flavor addition to the tahini and the pretty green color. I haven’t opened mine yet. I’m still debating what to put it on!
Somewhat Spicy Dill Flavored Kettle Chips
I was really excited when I saw this featured in the flyer, especially because I’ve been a fan of their dill popcorn. However, these were disappointing for me. I thought they were too salty and could have used more spice. I guess I thought they would taste like Zapp’s Cajun Dill Gator-tators, but they did not. This has been the second miss for me when it comes to Trader Joe’s kettle chips. I didn’t really care for their sriracha ones either (the ones made by the Sriracha brand, however, which I found at Tokyo Central market, are spot-on).
Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies
These are supposed to be like coconut macaroon cookies with a salted caramel center. I didn’t really enjoy these though because the coconut macaroon cookies were missing the chewy texture which is what I enjoy most about a coconut macaroon.
While these were not in the flyer, they were on display right in front of my store and I couldn’t resist. These are some of the prettiest white peaches I’ve seen this season and they were selling each box for $4.99. The peaches were very sweet.
That’s it for now! Let me know if I missed out on something essential that I need to go back for!
