Trader Joe’s July Edition

Sharing my monthly July haul from Trader Joe’s, including some new products like chili onion crunch, spicy taco sauce, crepe cookies and more. I also share some low carb products at the end of the post.

Trader Joe’s Chili Onion Crunch

This chili oil is full of crunchy onion bits, similar to the fried onions used in a green bean casserole.
I love the texture and flavor it adds to the chili oil. The sauce tastes great on roasted vegetables like cauliflower or brussels sprouts.

Trader Joe’s French Crepe Wafer Cookies

The cookie is made of up delicate, thin crispy layers. Each box comes with about 18 cookies. I love wafer cookies, and this crepe twist is even more fun. The box pictures them with ice cream, but I’ve just been eating them plain.

Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coconut Cream Latte
I love drinking lattes with coconut milk and this version is even has a rich coconut flavor from using coconut cream. There are two flavors available: original and caramel.

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Mini Pretzels

This was featured in a previous fearless flyer but we only recently tried it for the first time. I can’t stop eating these!
I know chocolate covered pretzels is nothing new but I do love that these come in both dark chocolate and milk chocolate and I like that some of the pretzels have a drizzle finish.

Trader Joe’s Organic Beary Tiny Gummies

I love gummy bears and can never resist trying new ones. These are just 99 cents a pack.

The gummies are both very soft and very chewy which usually doesn’t happen with softer gummies.
The flavors taste very natural, which is something I’m always looking for when buying gummy bears.

Verry Cherry Plum

This plum cherry hybrid is back at Trader Joe’s. I didn’t try it last year because I don’t really like plums, but I decided to give them a try this year.
Size-wise, they are right in between a cherry and a plum. They look like oversized cherries. Taste-wise, while a bit sweeter than your typical plum, I don’t really taste any hint of cherry in these.

Trader Joe’s Tumeric Ginger Coconut Beverage

This drink caught my eye because of its bright yellow packaging. I don’t really like turmeric so I was hesitant to try this, but the coconut part of it made me decide to give it a try.
Since the drink does have a strong turmeric flavor to it, it really wasn’t for me, but if you enjoy turmeric, then this version of golden milk may be worth a try.

Low Carb Products From Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s Spicy Taco Sauce
I am loving this taco sauce. It takes like taco meat sauce but also spicy. This spicy sauce works well with tacos, burgers, burritos and more. I also appreciate that they use organic ingredients and the sauce is low carb at less than 1g per tablespoon.

Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Cream
Not a new item but one I think worth pointing out because not all coconut creams are the same (some brands are very watery with very little cream). The only brands I use are Trader Joe’s and Thai Kitchen. I use this for making coconut whipped cream or in place of heavy cream for a lot of my low carb and keto recipes.

Trader Joe’s Hot & Spicy Dill Pickle Chips

Again, not a new item, but new for me. My husband and I are always trying to find brands of dill pickle that taste like homemade dill pickles and these really hit the spot. They are a bit on the spicy side, but I don’t mind. They taste pickled but the pickling is not too strong, similar to freshly pickled cucumbers, which is how I prefer my pickles to taste.

That’s all for now! As always, let me know if you have any new favorites you think I should try! You can read my previous June haul here. Do you love Costco, too? You might like my newest Costco Edition with some of my favorite products.

  1. Love Trader Joes its out go to. Veggies are always fresh and staff is friendly. You can taste an item if you dint like it you dont buy it. There is coffee for you and prices that cant be beat and your in and out My family loves it there.

    • I love how friendly the staff is! And the coffee is a nice touch

      • I really like the coconut cream latte! I was just there today and I knew I forgot something, the dark chocolate-covered mini pretzels, darn it! I did happen to see 3 ube ice creams after having been sold out for a month so I bought them all, ha ha

      • Lucky on finding the ube! I have been searching every Trader Joe’s for more.

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for the TJ tips.  I can’t wait to try the Spicy Dill Pickle Chips.  I’m intrigued with the Chili Onion Crunch.  Are you familiar with Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crisp?  Is it similar to that?  I just bought a case (six jars) of Chili Crisp, but I still want to try the TJ product.  Thanks for all you work…


    • Hi Scott. When I first saw the Chili Onion Crunch product, I also thought about Chili Crisp and was wondering if it was the same. While it’s a similar concept, the two do taste different and I think the Trader Joe’s one is worth trying. I think Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crisp has a stronger garlic chili flavor. The TJ version has a much stronger onion flavor. Both are good but in different ways.
