    I Tested And Ranked Some Of The Most Popular Trader Joe's Snacks

    It's all a yes from me.

    Whether you're a devoted TJs shopper or just looking to up your snack game, I'm here to help. Lucky for you, I did the hard work of testing and ranking some of the most popular snack options available at this much-loved grocery store.

    Disclaimer: The following list is all my own opinion. 

    1. The Organic Corn Chip Dippers are 10/10 amazing. I can't begin to tell you how well they go with any range of dips.

    PS: If you're looking for a little extra flavor, opt for the Elote Corn version. 

    2. What's crunchy, cheesy, and somehow also fluffy? The World's Puffiest White Cheddar Corn Puffs of course. I hope you believe me when I tell you this: you're about to become addicted in the best way.

    3. The Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Pretzel Nuggets are a savory, decadent treat that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

    4. Okay, so, the Dark Chocolate Drizzled Plantain Chips might sound odd at first but it's like a chocolate-covered banana in an extra crunchy form! Delicious! Irresistible!

    5. Maple leaves falling down like pieces into place... I can picture it, after all these days! Embrace your inner fall-girl aesthetic all year-'round with these Maple Leaf Cookies. It's all about the buttery shortbread with maple cream in between-- made with actual Canadian syrup. What could be better?

    6. Have you heard of the Organic Mixed Berry Granola Bites? They're not as well known as some of the other flashier snack options but let me tell you, they're totally worth trying as they're easy, portable, and oh so cute in tiny nutrition-filled clusters.

    7. Back in college, I enjoyed a Sublime Ice Cream Sandwich every night, and I highly recommend following my lead. It's the chewy chocolate chip cookies and the mini chocolate chip-coated ice cream for me!!

    8. Honey Wheat Pretzel Sticks are where it's at TBH. Really, it's just a vehicle for whatever dip you want to use (Chocolate hummus perchance). The salt to honey balance is spot on tho.

    9. I'm not kidding when I say this: the Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets are about to become a snack staple in your household. They're perfectly crunchy! They're filled with a yummy peanut butter center! There's nothing not to love here. (Unless you're allergic to peanut butter that is.)
