We are midway through April, so it is officially time for me to share my April Trader Joe’s favorites.  This month, I noticed several coffee scented/flavored things throughout the store.  As always, I am sharing my chocolate pick for the month too.

Coffee body scrub

Trader Joe’s has great beauty products, and every now and then they will make this list. We go through a lot of sugar scrub for Spa Sunday, so this coffee body scrub is an easy refill.  It smells like coconut and coffee and is made with all natural ingredients to scrub and moisturize. It retails for $4.99 for an 8 oz. tub, so stock up before they run out.

Cold brew coffee concentrate

Speaking of coffee, Trader Joe’s cold brew is delicious, or so Colton tells me.  When he is a in a rush, he doesn’t want to French Press coffee, he grabs a cup of this. Each 32 oz. bottle equals about 12 cups of coffee, since you blend it with water or milk.  Pour it over ice cream, make it blended, create a coffee cocktail, or serve it hot.  Colton typically adds hot water to it for a quick cup of coffee in the mornings.

Rolled oats

This 32 ounce bag of gluten free rolled oats is a lifesaver for me.  During the cold months, I make delicious oatmeal bowls (think smoothie bowl but with oatmeal).

Now, I have been obsessively making overnight oats.  Earlier this week I shared my current favorite breakfast- chocolate oatmeal cookie overnight oats.

Ridge cut potato chips (salt and pepper)

These ridge cut potato chips are crack.  Colton and I can go through one bag in a day.  I have never been a fan of the potato chip until these made its way into our home. They are delicious as a side to a burger or sandwich or dipped in any dip (like my spinach pesto dip). The mix of salt and hint of spice make these the perfect potato chip.

Dark chocolate covered powerberries

For my obligatory chocolate favorite, I bring you dark chocolate covered powerberries, another addictive snack favorite. Each piece contains acai, blueberries, cranberries, and pomegranates, then it is coated in dark chocolate.   The only negative is that I can eat an entire bag of these in one sitting.

    I miss Trader Joe’s so much!! My stomach just growled as I looked at your pictures! We had one when we lived in Birmingham, but Chattanooga doesn’t have one yet. I’ve heard rumors… so hopefully, someday soon we will have one too! <3

    Ugh, I love Trader Joe’s! Especially their cookies but there isn’t one nearby anymore ;( Enjoy!

    Hi Jessica! You are convincing me to drive to Trader Joe’s today to check these out! I’m a Texas girl too (Houston) but we live in the ‘burbs and Trader Joe’s is about 30 minutes away. I still make a trip every few months because they have so many fun products.

    The coffee body scrub sounds amazing. I LOVE coffee (I think I enjoy the smell of a cup of coffee more than anything) so the scrub would be perfect. I’m definitely going to check that out!

    I’ll have to give their cold brew coffee a try, cold brew is my favorite kind of coffee because it’s so strong and usually quite delicious! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite stores because they carry such unique and delicious products. Since I have been trying to eat healthier and find new snack options, I will definitely pick up a bag of Dark chocolate covered powerberries the next time I’m at Trader Joe’s.

    I’ve never tried the beauty products at Trader Joes but that coffee scrub looks wonderful!

  • Reply Kimberly April 14, 2017 at 8:40 am

    We do not have a Trader joes in our area and i get so jealous when I see people post things from there! You’re so lucky!! It sounds like a place that I could get lost in for hours just sifting through all the good finds! That chocolate power berry snack looks like heaven!

    I need to hit up a TJ’s soon… it’s been too long! Those chips look amazing and will have to check out those powerberries–I like chocolate covered anything… Also I didn’t know they had body scrubs!

    Thanks for sharing, momma, and hope you have a great weekend/Easter!

    Those chips look so good! I never thought Trader Joe’s would be a place to grab beauty products, but I’m dying for that scrub!

  • Reply Sheryl April 15, 2017 at 5:40 am

    So I’m desperately wanting one of those bags of powerberries!!! My husband’s office is close to our Trader Joe’s so he goes often and I don’t. You’ve reminded me I need to make a visit!

  • Reply Rebecca April 15, 2017 at 5:40 am

    That scrub looks amazing – and that COFFEE! Ugh, suddenly wishing I had a Trader Joe’s in my life!

    THanks for this! I actually love their beauty/bath products but I’ve never seen the coffee scrub! I need to check that out!

    As much as I shop at TJ’s, I’m amazed that you keep introducing me to new products! I’m dying to try the coffee sugar scrub!

  • Reply Danielle April 17, 2017 at 5:39 am

    That scrub looks so good! It’s clear I need to get to a Trader Joes (I’ve only been once).

  • Reply Penny Struebig April 17, 2017 at 8:25 am

    Those chips look too good!! So do the berries. Trader Joe’s is a bit of a hike for me, so we don’t go there as often I as would if one was closer. But these items are definitely going on my next shopping list.

    I need that coffee body scrub!
