Trader Joe’s December Edition
Trader Joe’s December Fearless Flyer came out recently and of course I had to make my way over to try out their newest featured items. Here is what I ended up getting:
Triple Ginger Brew
If you enjoy your ginger ale with an extra ginger kick, this is for you. I loved how much ginger flavor is packed in here. It really burns as you are swallowing! I love the packaging too. Despite the appearance, it’s not beer. It’s a non-alcoholic carbonated beverage with a lot of ginger added to it.
Macarons des Fetes
I enjoy the macarons at Trader Joe’s. They are cheaper than the ones sold at bakeries and have a decent flavor and texture. I especially like eating them straight out of the freezer. If you wait until they completely thaw, the shells are a bit too soft for my liking. For the holidays, they created a box with flavors like gingerbread and pear cinnamon.
Pita Bite Crackers
These crackers taste just like pita chips. I was surprised they were able to make them so thin. They look delicate, but they are just as firm and crisp as regular pita chips. I love the fantastic crunch and texture and find these even more fun to eat than regular pita chips. We didn’t wait for fancy toppings—we just snacked on these until they were gone.
I haven’t opened this one yet. It’s being saved for an upcoming dinner.
Cookie Butter Cheesecake
I was so excited when I read about this one in the circular. Trader Joe’s has come up with so many interesting cookie butter creations. I’m saving this one for when we have more people around. I don’t want the temptation of the two of us eating the entire thing.
Salted Caramel Gelato
I was excited to see this back in stock. They had it previously and then it disappeared for awhile. While I have not yet tried it, I’ve heard great things and I usually enjoy Trader Joe’s ice cream selection, so I’m looking forward to this one.
I managed to limit myself to these items on my visit. Did I miss anything I must return for? I’ve already been told to try the chocolate ganache pastry in the bakery section, but I didn’t see it at my Trader Joe’s.
