Trader Joe’s May Edition
I recently went to Trader Joe’s to check out some of the new items featured in their Fearless Flyer as well as load up on other items that caught my eye.
Giant Peruvian Inca Corn
What is it about oversized and mini versions of things that get us so excited? I was definitely intrigued by this product. They are meant to be like the corn nuts snack, though the kernels are humongous.
I was afraid these would be hard, but they are actually softer than regular corn nuts and have a more popcorn taste. I’m really enjoying these and I’ll be back for more soon.
Pastrami Style Salmon
I was really surprised at just how similar the salmon tasted when prepared with the pastrami spices. The only thing that gave away the fact that I was eating salmon was the texture. The taste was so similar though and this was a fun item to try.
We love shishito peppers so I was excited to see them at Trader Joe’s. I did find that the ones here were smaller than the ones I’ve purchased from other places and there was also a disproportionate amount of spicy ones.
Last year I bought a beautiful basil plant at Trader Joe’s. It was a great price and it flourished in my garden. I didn’t see the basil on this visit but I did see this parsley plant, which I bought to add to my garden bed.
We picked this up while browsing the freezer section. Mr. K and I both love our hashbrowns. We actually haven’t had a chance to cook these up yet.
That’s it for now! Have a great day everyone!
