    "My kids love going there. It's like Disneyland but we leave with food."

    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share the items their kids love the most at Trader Joe's. Here are their sometimes healthy, sometimes just yummy recommendations:

    1. Just Mango Slices

    These dried mango slices are the best substitute for candy.


    2. Soy Creamy Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

    My son is allergic to dairy and I am so thankful that Trader Joe's has delicious vanilla soy ice cream! Other soy ice cream brands we've tried are way too sweet but the vanilla one at Trader Joe's is super yummy!


    3. Roasted Seaweed Snack

    5. Curried Carrot and Cashew Dip

    I just tried the Curried Carrot and Cashew Dip and it's so so yummy. It's obviously not for nut-free kids, but it's very low in sugar (1g) and high in vitamins, bright orange, and sweet to boot!

    6. Garlic Naan

    My picky 3-year-old adores their garlic naan.


    7. Creamy No-Salt Organic Peanut Butter

    I love their creamy, no-salt organic peanut butter because it only has one ingredient, peanuts! My toddler enjoys it on pancakes in the morning or on bread as a snack.


    8. Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    My son and husband love the big container of mini chocolate chip cookies. Sometimes we go through two containers a week!


    9. Edamame Hummus

    10. Organic Silver Dollar Pancakes / Via

    Get them in the freezer section! They're easy for toddler hands to master and so delicious!


    11. Rolled Oats and Chocolate Chips Fiberful Granola Bars

    These have more fiber and protein (and less sugar!) than some of the other bars marketed for children.


    12. Joe's O's and Popcorn in a Pickle

    Toss up between Joes O's or the pickle popcorn. My kids love going there. It's like Disney but we leave with food.


    13. Fruit Sauce Crushers

    My kids love the applesauce packets. I usually buy the apple/carrot mix for them to eat. They would eat them with every meal if I let them.


    14. Cheddar Rocket Crackers

    There are so many things I can say here but I'm going Cheddar Rockets.

    15. Freeze-Dried Strawberries

    My daughter always has to get these and eats the whole bag right away!

    My daughter is obsessed with the Gorgonzola Crackers. She has been since she was one and a half. We always have to have a box around for her.

    18. Joe Joe's Cookies

    You can’t go wrong with Joe Joe’s. Just wish they would bring back the peanut butter ones.


    19. Scandinavian Swimmers

    The best gummy texture and flavors!


    20. Microwavable Mac & Cheese

    It's actually really good mac and cheese! It's also perfect for the nights when my husband and I want something spicy to eat. Our 5-year-old isn't a fan of spice so this saves me from having to make an entire meal just for him. It's also great for a quick snack, even for myself.


    21. Anything Cookie Butter–Related

    It’s a staple in our house!
