The Top Trader Joe’s Products of All Time, Ranked

4. Organic Riced Cauliflower

Another reason that TJ’s is so popular is because they make eating wholesome, organic food easy. They have an extensive frozen section, but instead of bland and limp whole veggies, they carry a selection of frozen, prepared veggies that are already seasoned and ready to use. Their Organic Riced Cauliflower can be used as a substitute for rice — just warm it for a few minutes in a pan before serving. A 12 oz bag will only set you back $1.99, which is extremely reasonable since you’ll probably get at least 2 servings out of each bag.

5. Fig & Olive Crisps

When it comes to cheese and crackers, TJ’s carries products that would be twice as expensive in other grocery stores. One of their most popular snack crackers is their Fig & Olive Crisps — a savory and sweet cracker that’s sturdy enough for the creamiest, most spreadable of cheeses. They make a great base for fancy appetizers, including the goat cheese and sliced fig bites that are suggested on the box. Made with flax, sunflower, and sesame seeds, one box will cost you $3.99.

6. Dried Turkish Apricots

Although dried fruit and nuts are healthy snacks that are promoted by many doctors and nutritionists, they can add a hefty sum to your weekly grocery bill.  TJ’s carries a huge variety of dried fruit and nuts that don’t cost an arm and a leg. A 16 oz bag of Dried Turkish Apricots only costs $4.49, which they attribute to the fact that they buy and sell over one million pounds of Turkish Apricots every year. This is an unbelievable price for dried fruit, and their apricots are always reliably sweet and tender.
