3. Roasted Vegetable Multi-Grain Lasagna / Via

Their vegetable lasagna is so good! We always make sure we have one in the freezer, so when we don't feel like making dinner, it's our perfect go-to meal. It doesn't even taste like you're eating vegetables! It tastes so amazing; like a flavor explosion in your mouth.


4. Chocolate Mousse Cakes / Via

The mini chocolate mousse cake are amazing. They have different shapes, colors, and decorations for different seasons (Halloween = pumpkins), and they are always so fresh. Six barely last a day in my house.



10. Low-Fat Chocolate Cats Cookies For People

The name is a mouthful, but they have been my favorite Trader Joe's product for a long time. They're chocolatey and not too sweet. Plus, you get a bunch in a serving. They're a little crunchier than I usually like cookies to be, but dipping them in milk makes them perfect.



13. Unsweetened Organic Açai Purée Packets

Definitely their açai packs! They're organic, unsweetened, and crazy inexpensive — just $4 for a pack of four! As someone who loves açai bowls, it's super hard to find such good quality for anything less than $8+ dollars. So this is quite the find! Usually have to go digging in the frozen fruit department for these gems, but trust me, it's worth it!



15. Toasted Coconut Pancake Mix / Via

The pancake mix is to die for! You just add a little bit of water and voilà! Some of the best pancakes you'll ever have. I've made these several times when friends and family visit, and I am showered with compliments. No one can believe it came from a box!



19. Chicken Tikka Masala

I could eat it for the rest of my life! The creamy sauce in it is soooo good. A great lunch option: Just pop it in the microwave for four minutes and you're ready. It's pretty cheap too at $3.49. Plus if you're vegan, there's a vegan version!


20. Organic Argan Oil

Guys please, PLEASE buy TJ's Argan oil! I used Josie Maran's forever and this is the SAME THING except it only costs $7! Please make it popular so it won't be discontinued. I use it on my hair, face, body, nails, and lips.


21. Wild King Salmon Jerky

Their salmon jerky! I got it for a hike on Mount Fuji. I don't eat red meat but wanted some protein, and this was the only thing I could think of. By the time we got to the summit, I ended up having to share all three bags with strangers because they couldn't get enough.


22. Unexpected Cheddar Cheese

I want to take a bath in this cheese. If woman and cheese could marry, this would be the one I'd spend my life with. How do I describe something so delectable and indescribable? I'll try, but it will pale in comparison. It's a very, very sharp cheddar with a distinct taste of Parmesan — it's awesome on everything. I love it on pasta, pizza, salads, sandwiches, everything. It's easily the most amazing thing I have ever put in my mouth.



25. Quinoa Cowboy Veggie Burgers

These patties are LIFE. They're definitely not a meat replacement, but they make a darn good burger substitute. Also, they make amazing stupid fast tacos. Cook 'em up, crumble 'em up, put 'em on some toasted tortillas, and cover with cheese. – Sarah Cate, Facebook


27. Lemon Curd

Everyone talks about Trader Joe's, but for some reason, NO ONE is talking about their lemon curd! In one word: AMAZING! The perfect morning condiment and complement to toasted french bread. Think of lemon meringue pie but in a delicious spread form: To die for.



31. Sumatra Coffee Brownies

The Sumatra coffee brownies are the BEST store bought brownies I ever had. They are beyond fudgy, and they taste like heaven when warmed and topped with ice cream. I will go to Trader Joe's just for them.
