Trader Joe’s Most Popular Products 2017

Trader Joe’s  most popular products were recently released. Every year, for the past 8 years, Trader Joe’s has vote from their customers and the results are in and their 8th annual customer choice award have been posted on their website. Before I get to far into this, remember that is a popularity contest, just like voting for prom king and queen. I’m sure this does not reflect actual sales otherwise bananas would be the #1 most popular product!

Let’s get to the results… First up the big news is that Speculoos Cookie Butter has fallen from it’s throne, where it was king of this list for the past 3 years. I could’ve predicted this as Cookie Butter was a huge hit for Trader Joe’s but it couldn’t keep up that level of infatuation forever.

The big winner in the Overall Favorites category this year is no surprise because it’s always #1 or #2 on the list and that is the Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken. You can read my review here and why it’s so damn popular.

The runner ups in the Overall Favorites category are below. Those that I’ve reviewed have links to my review. The rest I should probably review real soon!
