Trader Joes Product Love – Part Two

If you read my first Trader Joes review, you know how much I love their products. I took a recent trip and bought a whole bunch of great new things.

First up, Chocolatey Cats Cookies.

I love these cute little treats. They are crunchy and have a great chocolate flavor. They remind me of Teddy Grahams, but better! Plus, they’re low fat. Meow!

Next we have the Roasted Gorgonzola Crackers.

If you like Gorgonzola cheese, you will like these crackers. They are teeny tiny, so you will want to eat a million, but be warned, the flavor is quite pungent. To be honest, I don’t love these. I mostly enjoyed them dipped in sour cream spinach dip (which was delicious), but they are too strong for me on their own.

I may not love the crackers, but I adore this next item!

Pretzel Rolls. Soft, chewy, carby pretzel rolls! I fell in love with pretzel rolls when I had a burger served on one at the St. James Hotel in Red Wing, MN. These rolls are excellent, but definitely just a treat for me, as they have over 300 calories each. My husband and I made roast beef and cheddar sandwiches on these, and smothered them with this next product.

Yum! This hummus is perfect. It has just the right amount of kick to it, so it made a perfect sandwich spread. It’s also excellent on crackers and raw veggies.

Finally we have Soyaki.

The name says it all for this one. It’s the perfect combination of soy and teriyaki sauces. I’ve used this sauce as a marinade and in stir fry. It’s sweet, savory and a great mix of Asian flavors.

I could go on and on about all the other great TJs products I love, but I won’t. I’ll save that for part three. 😉
