    I Ranked All Of Trader Joe's Holiday Items From "Skip It" To "Stock Up"

    Tough job, but someone's gotta do it.

    Hi! I'm Hannah and maybe it's in my DNA, but if you don't already know, I'm a huge Trader Joe's enthusiast.

    T.J.'s is my favorite grocery store of all time, but I especially love it during the holidays when the aisles are filled with seasonal items. It's safe to say I've sampled the majority of the store at this point — so here are a ton of Trader Joe's holiday items ranked for your shopping pleasure from skip it to stock up on it.
