I loooooooove that your love for Trader Joe’s runs just as deep as mine.
I’m having so much fun making honest TJ’s reviews videos on TikTok, so I wanted to put a bunch of my reviews in one place so it’s easier for you to check them out next time you’re headed out to do some shopping!
Note – some of my must-haves like Ube Ice Cream and Everything But The Bagel Seasoning aren’t on this list… but you know those are hands down 10/10s for me 😋
These are actually pretty good! But here’s the thing – the package comes with a lot, and they get moldy in like 2 days if you can’t finish them all. Sooo because of that I’m going with a 8/10.
Green Goddess Dressing
Yikes you guys. Some of you are really passionate about your Green Goddess dressing! I just found it to be really boring and flavorless…and too watery. TBH I’m kinda confused about why people rave about it so much? 4/10.
A TJ’s staple. This one get’s 2 reviews, because it’s alllll about how you prepare it. If you follow the package directions, it’s kinda mushy and meh – 5/10.
BUT if you follow a food blogger’s recipe, it’s crispy perfection on the outside and just a bit gummy on the inside, making it a solid 10/10 🙌
Rice Cauliflower Stir Fry
Hands down a 10/10 on this one. And I’m a tough critic when it comes to Asian food! BUY THIS!
Vegan Banana Bread
This is better than any banana bread I’ve EVER had, vegan or not. Seriously. It’s moist. It’s sweet. You need this. 10/10.
Vegan Chicken-less Seasoning Salt
Meh. No flavor profile. Too salty. 4/10.
Everything But The Elote Seasoning
This needs to be in EVERYONE’s pantry. It’s my favorite seasoning everrr and I stock up every time I go on a Trader Joe’s run. There’s a little cheese and sugar in it but whatever, it’s WORTH IT and has 0 calories per serving. 20/10
Vegan Shredded Mozzarella
Sorry but this sucks. It literally tastes like nothing. Go grab Daiya instead. 2/10
I’m allll for lazy hacks for eating healthy, but this is a no-go. Just go buy a zucchini in the produce section and make your own zoodles. 4/10
This is suuuuper sweet, but so tasty! Bonus – it’s vegan. I’d give it a 10/10 if it wasn’t for the fact that there’s probably an entire watermelon in the one teeny bite I’ll eat in about 5 seconds. So let’s say 9.5/10
Watermelon Jerky is a yes…. Watermelon Spread is a no.
I had realllly high hopes for this! But sadly it fell flat and it tasted more like a refurbished Jolly Rancher. I gave it a 3.5/10 and honestly, the .5 is just for the cute packaging.
*PANTRY STAPLE ALERT*
This just makes everything taste good. I like to put it on my meat and pretty much all of my veggies. 10/10
I have to admit my expectations were kinda low for this… but it’s actually pretty good! But the key here is honey.
If you don’t add honey – 5/10
If you add honey – 9/10
Just…. no. Didn’t like this AT ALL. 1/10
Almond Butter Turmeric Salad Dressing
Okay… so this one surprised me a little! It’s not AS boring as I thought the Green Goddess dressing was (sorry). Buuuuut it’s still not as exciting and flavorful as the Kefir dressing. So this gets a 6.5/10
Very Cherry Plums
Hmm… these don’t really taste like cherries. They just taste like plums that LOOK like fat cherries. Not bad…just nothing special? So 7/10
Strawberry Oat Ice Cream
CANNOT contain my excitement about this. You know how I’m obsessed with the Ube Ice Cream? Well… this might be even BETTER.
It’s creamy perfection, with little bits of candied strawberries and brittle inside. YUM. Buy this. 1 MILLION/10.
Riced Cauliflower Bowl
Love my cauli rice… definitely DO NOT love this bowl. It’s seriously disappointment in a box. Zero flavor. Skip it. 2/10
