Trader Joe’s June Edition
The latest Fearless Flyer from Trader Joe’s recently came out and of course I had to make a few trips to get some of the featured items.
Brewed Ginger Beer
We love the new ginger beer offered by Trader Joe’s. With pieces of ginger floating inside, this non-alcoholic ginger beer has a good punch to it. We previously enjoyed the triple brewed ginger beer that Trader Joe’s offered over the holidays, but what I like about this one is the individual serving sizes. We plan on going back to Trader Joe’s again really soon to stock up on more.
Ts & Js Sour Gummies
I like the “T” and “J” shapes, which are quite cute. I do wish they came in other flavors other than a citrus variety which aren’t my favorite flavors when it comes to gummy candies.
Mozzarella Cheese Log
I originally bought this in anticipation of eating it with tomatoes from my garden but they are taking their sweet time ripening. The cheese log makes it easier to slice for a caprese appetizer or salad. Luckily for me, TJ is also featuring Villagio Marzano® Tomatoes this month, so I was able to pick up a bag to eat with the cheese.
Heavenly Villagio Marzano® Tomatoes
These are mini versions of San Marzano tomato, grown in greenhouses in the U.S. and Canada, rather than in Italy. They are quite sweet, and the sweetness is enhanced even more by the balsamic vinegar.
Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
I’m no balsamic vinegar expert as I usually stay as far away from it as possible other than when eating it with a caprese salad, so I won’t comment on the quality, but it did work nicely with the appetizer I made.
I purchased one of these enormous basil plants last year and it thrived in my garden bed. I was excited to purchase a new one to add to my garden for this year. This plant already had so many basil leaves that I was also able to use it in my appetizer dish.
Baconesque White Cheddar Popcorn
While not featured this month, it’s been on my to-do list. The popcorn is quite flavorful. It’s very cheesy with a hint of salty smoky bacon.
Hollows & Fentiman’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer
We also picked up this alcoholic ginger beer. We haven’t yet opened it yet though.
That’s it for now! Happy Wednesday everyone!
