Trader Joe’s summer picks

After work on Monday I had little debate with myself about whether or not I was going to stop at Trader Joe’s on the way home. It was bloody hot out, the kind of hot that you can feel through your shoes and makes you wonder what the boiling point of the body is.

But you’ll be happy to hear I won the debate with myself and ended up stopping.  I picked a few new ‘tries’ I wanted to share with you before they become more of my regular go-to’s and I forget all about them.

Mango & Cream Ice Cream

Do not confuse this with TJ’s mango sorbet (which is also delish and one I’ve shared before) If you simply plopped fresh mango in some sweet cream, this is exactly what you would come up with.  Amazingly good.

And cold. Cold is gooooood.

 

Hashbrowns

These come frozen, only $1.99 for a package of ten I think.  Crispy and flavorful, easy to make and, lets be honest, good any day.  Hashbrowns warm my soul.

 

Soft Pretzel Stick

Never been a fan of regular pretzels, I have to say. I just really don’t get the appeal. But soft pretzels are a whole other thing…a beautiful thing, especially these. I’d never seen them at TJ’s before, so I just grabbed one seeing that it was only 99 cents.  It ended up being so good I actually ate it plain, although I’m sure you could put all sorts of things with it.  It’s difficult to tell from the picture, but it’s a good size too, probably around 6″.

Just close your eyes when you take a bite and you’ll think you’re at Disneyland.
