Current Cravings- Trader Joe’s January
There was no Fearless Flyer in my mail this month. I know they don’t come every month, but after getting so many consecutive ones in a row, it felt like such a let down.
Also, how was I supposed to know what to buy??
Anyway, I made up some excuse for making a trip. Something about needing more gruyere cheese. So DH and I stopped by after a night dining out and while we were there I had to do some exploring of course.
Dried Green mangoes
I’m obsessed with dried fruit and I’m always checking to see if TJ has new offerings. I hadn’t yet seen these before and neither had my cashier. I was afraid they would be too tart for me, but they are sweetened, so it was a really good balance of tart and sweet. I really enjoyed them.
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips
Finally! Everytime I go, these seem to be out. But they were there on my latest trip. While I’ve learned to make my own, it was still great to eat TJ’s version. Love the thick crunchy chips they use.
Dried Sweetened Korean Pear
Usually when it’s packaged this way it’s the freeze-dried fruit, so I was surprised to see that these were actually hydrated dry fruit. They weren’t as dried out as some dried fruit, with each chunk still possessing quite a bit of meat. They were sweet and enjoyable but not really memorable.
This is actually something I always get when I’m here. I’ve eaten the hard pieces of crystallized ginger, but I love this non-crystallized one even better. The texture is almost like a soft gummy candy which was really surprising at first as none of the sweetened ginger I’ve eaten ever tastes like that.
Shelf Stable Whipping Cream
So I haven’t yet opened this, but I thought I’d share that TJ offers it. If it tastes good, then I’ll definitely be buying more. I hate how regular heavy cream has an expiration date, so this shelf stable one sounds like a dream come true.
Well that’s it for now. Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!
