I have to be honest, I don’t review a lot of cereal anymore because I don’t really eat it and the kids have grown out of cereal onto things like eggs and bagels, something a little more filling. But every once in a while I get a hankering for a big bowl of cereal just when I was a kid. Just when I had such a craving, it turned pumpkin season at Trader Joe’s and out came the giant boxes of Pumpkin O’s cereal and I just had to grab a box.
Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter. SpecuWhat? What in the world? Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter?!?! I thought Trader Joe’s had a misspelled label when I first saw this. I’ve traveled and eaten all over the world, but I don’t remember anything called “speculoos”.

Trader Joe’s really stirred up a hornet’s nest of controversy over one of their latest food releases. Trader Joe’s decided to release a Korean sushi-like concoction that is called Kimbap and it has really caused kind of a ruckus because of how you prepare it at home compared to what you might get in Korea.

I love to try new Vegan food all the time. The less meat we can all eat, I think it’s so much better for the planet. Trader Joe’s does a great job of catering to the Vegan crowd and there are so many options to eat clean vegan food from Trader Joe’s. They really know this demographic and it shows with all the foods that they supply people that are Vegan eaters. I’ve tasted hundreds and hundreds of different Trader Joe’s products and over the years I have eaten more than my fair share of Vegan frozen meals. In this article, I wanted to showcase those frozen vegan food items that I particularly enjoyed.
Trader Joe’s has a long history of having above average bread and bagels. It was a hallmark of their stores. You knew you could walk into a Trader Joe’s and get a decent loaf of bread and a good bagel. Maybe it was their Jewish heritage or just the drive to deliver really good food at a lower price point but several years ago things seem to have gone off the rails.
