I started my Trader Joe’s favorites series last year to share not only my love for Trader Joe’s, but to bring attention to some products that make my month better. Many of their items rotate out seasonally, so each month I choose new and old favorites to check out. Since I spend so much time at my Trader Joe’s, I am always trying the new things they bring out.

Wine country chicken salad

Warning: this chicken salad is addicting. It contains chicken, pecans, poppy seeds, cranberries, and celery. You will love how chunky it is, and the cranberries give it a hint of sweetness. Whether you want to eat it on a sandwich, with crackers, or straight from the bowl, you will not be able to stop.

Pink grapefruit marmalade

I love how Trader Joe’s rotates out it’s jams and marmalades with the season. The pink grapefruit is a new favorite because it is just as citrusy as it is sweet. Add this to a sandwich with your favorite nut butter, pour it over cream cheese, or serve it as a complement to a cheese board like I did.

The complete cookie

Trader Joe’s now carries Lenny & Larry’s complete protein cookies. Why eat a dull protein bar when you can eat a cookie post workout? They taste just like a freshly baked cookie but contain no eggs, dairy, soy, or GMO.

Simpler wines

Wine in a can that actually tastes good? That is what you get with simpler wines. Trader Joe’s carries Italian sparkling wine and rose, so grab your favorite or stock up on both. They make them easy to carry around for your next picnic, party, or adventure. Plus, they are pretty, so they will brighten up any event. Want to know the best part? You can get this 4 pack for only $3.99.

Grapefruit ginger sugar scrub

Is winter drying out your skin? It’s made mine dry and flaky lately. This sugar scrub not only helps remove dead skin, but it leaves it feeling soft and refreshed afterwards. Plus, the grapefruit and ginger combination smell incredibly and remind me of spring.

    We don’t have a traders Joe close to us. Nearest one is over an hour away. We have stopped in and bought a few things when we are close to one.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:51 am

      I am so sorry. Maybe you can make a bimonthly trip to stock up on some of their goodies?

  • Susannah January 19, 2018 at 9:32 am

    I’ve heard so much about the great selection at Trader Joe’s but we don’t have one! I’m so so sad! I know it’s only a grocery store, but I really want to try it!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:52 am

      It’s the best grocery store for sure. Hopefully you will get to experience one soon.

  • Zoe January 19, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Love this!!! This is one of my favorite stores & I haven’t tried some of these. I can’t wait to go shopping this weekend 🙂

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:52 am

      I always love stocking up on all the new items.

  • The Girl With Glasses January 19, 2018 at 10:11 am

    I don’t know which this store is cause I live in Hungary but they look great!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:55 am

      It’s a great little grocery store with lots of healthy treats.

  • Leslie January 19, 2018 at 10:53 am

    I love Trader Joe’s. I want to try that pink grapefruit marmalade. It sounds delicious!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:56 am

      It really is! Great with PB and a sandwich.

  • Marjie Mare January 19, 2018 at 11:20 am

    I love Trader Joe’s and get all my hair products there. Your picture makes me realize it’s time for me to have another tea party and will have the grapefruit marmalade in my cheese tray as well.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:56 am

      They have the best beauty products. The marmalade on the cheese tray was perfect.

  • Angela Tolsma January 19, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    Wine in a can is such a interesting idea! I’ll have to see if my local trader joes has it! The sugar scrub though is something I’ve gotten before and it’s awesome!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:57 am

      isn’t it. It feels weird at first, but it actually tastes pretty good.

  • Rose January 19, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    We have a Trader Joe’s here but I haven’t gone to it. I have never drank wine in a can so I wonder if I’m missing something, lol. That sugar scrub looks good.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:57 am

      Definitiely check it out! There are so many wonderful things there.

  • Alexandra January 19, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    I’d like to try the Grapefruit Ginger scrub. I’d bet the scent would really wake you up in the morning!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:58 am

      It’s awesome. I love the scent too. Very refreshing!

  • A- January 19, 2018 at 8:56 pm

    We just got a Trader Joes where I live! I’ve been in a few times but now I’ll for sure have to stop by and try out some of these items 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

      Of course! Sharing my monthly favorites is one of my favorite posts for sure.

  • Shell January 19, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Grapefruit ginger scrub??? I need that in my life!!! LOL I’m heading over to Trader Joe’s tomorrow to pick that up!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:58 am

      I hope you love it! It smells wonderful.

  • Jazmin Williams January 20, 2018 at 5:59 am

    That cookie looks soooo good! We don’t have a Trader Joe’s in the UK but if there’s one when I go to LA in March, if I see one I may pop in to be nosey….

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:59 am

      There are definitely a few in LA. 🙂 You will have to stop in.

  • Stephanie January 20, 2018 at 2:33 pm

    I’ve never been to Trader Joe’s since there isn’t one close, but I’ve heard so many great things! That chicken salad looks delicious and I can smell the grapefruit scrub from here!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 8:59 am

      Hopefully you will be able to experience it at some point. My favorite store ever.

  • Lucy January 20, 2018 at 4:46 pm

    Liking the pink grapefruit theme! I like trader joes, but we do not have them where I live! When I’m next near one I will be having a look for these items.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:28 am

      Me too! Such a fun flavor.

  • Gabbie Sanchez January 20, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    That chicken salad sounds very tempting indeed! 😛 I love chicken salads on a sandwich or crackers. The pink grapefruit marmalade sounds awesome as well, and I love sugar scrubs and the grapefruit ginger one sounds amazing!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:28 am

      Yes! My favorite places for them too. The pink grapefruit is wonderful.

  • Kristyn January 20, 2018 at 9:11 pm

    Bummer that I don’t live near a Trader Joe’s anymore. These sound really good to try out.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:29 am

      I am so sorry. That would make me so sad.

  • Ananda January 21, 2018 at 7:40 pm

    we LOVE Trader Joe’s!! will be checking out those complete protein cookies! =)

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:29 am

      It’s really good!

  • Sarah Althouse January 22, 2018 at 9:06 am

    Okay, next time I go I am getting that complete cookie and sugar scrub!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:29 am

      Yes! Let me know what you think!

  • David Elliott January 22, 2018 at 12:54 pm

    I love Trader Joes and I think I would use all of these products or eat them rather. Although I am not sure what I would do with the sugar scrub. I mean I know how it works. I’ll talk to my daughter and see if she would be interested in such a thing.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:30 am

      I am sure your daughter will love it.

  • Abby Darlington January 22, 2018 at 1:40 pm

    Trader Joes is my favorite!! The reduced guilt guacamole and eggplant hummus are my two favorites. I’ve never been a fan of the lenny and larry’s bars. What flavor do you like?

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:31 am

      That guacamole is wonderful. I have only tried the two cookies and like both of them.

  • Amanda January 22, 2018 at 5:36 pm

    Trader Joe’s is great! I’ve found a number of gluten free products that my family loves. I will have to pick up some of the chicken salad next time I am there. That sounds delicious!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:31 am

      Yes! They have a great GF selection.

  • Jessica | PetiteStyleScript January 22, 2018 at 10:11 pm

    These are great products from Trader Joes! I love this store!

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:31 am

      Thank you, Jessica. 🙂 I love it too.

  • Dellea January 23, 2018 at 6:27 am

    Same! I LOVE their chicken salad.

    • Jessica January 23, 2018 at 11:31 am

      Me too! So good!

  • Lauren January 23, 2018 at 9:28 pm

    Great finds! I wish we had a Trader Joe’s here in Canada!!

    Lauren

    • Jessica January 24, 2018 at 8:52 pm

      Thank you, Lauren. I would miss it if I ever had to move .
