Trader Joe recently came out with another Fearless Flyer, which prompted a few visits for me. Here are some of the highlights from my shopping trips:
I’d never heard of a Kumato before until my Fearless Flyer ad. They are greenish brown rather than red. They ripen from the inside out and are supposedly super sweet.
I tried them. And indeed, they are sweeter than your average tomato. But not sugary sweet. More like sweet cherry tomatoes.
Coconut Mango Bites
Chewy coconut and mango flavored candy is covered in dark chocolate. These were quite tasty. It’s a little like a 3 Musketeers bar filled with a mixture of coconut and mango.
It’s not a new item, but I didn’t realize Trader Joe’s sold crumpets until the recent ad. I’ve been searching for crumpets as good as the ones we had in Seattle. I’ve attempted to make my own and they didn’t pan out. The TJ ones were pretty good. They are a little saltier than the ones I had in Seattle, but they are still a pretty solid option and we’ve been enjoying crumpets for weekend breakfast, topped with pesto and cheese or Nutella.
Italian Sausage-less Sausage
According to the Fearless Flyer, these promise to taste just like meat. I’ve had vegetarian imitations of meat before, and while I like how they taste, I’ve never been tricked into thinking it actually tastes like meat. I haven’t had a chance to eat these yet. We will be grilling them for Memorial Day. I’ll update this post later with my thoughts on them.
Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
Not a featured flyer item but a favorite of ours. Mr. K wanted to stock up to get his caffeine buzz for work.
I also spotted in the freezer section that Trader Joe’s now offers a 12 variety pack of macarons, but on each of my visits they were sold out.
That’s it for now. Did I miss any must-try items?
