It’s officially the holiday season and you know what that means…you must start balancing your diet between the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup.
I, a true holiday fanatic, could not be more thrilled to hear holiday music on every radio station and see holiday shopping deals and advertisements everywhere I turn. Although, I must admit I was most ecstatic to see the plethora of goodies Trader Joe’s offers its holiday obsessed shoppers. Here are 7 Trader Joe’s items that you must have this holiday season. Go out and get them before it’s too late.
1. Peppermint Pretzel Slims
Fully coated in creamy, pepperminty goodness, these pretzel slims are the perfect combo of salty and sweet. Warning: you will not be able to eat just one. That’s okay though because calories don’t count during the holidays, right? I promise, you will not regret it.
2. Caramel and Dark Chocolate Popcorn Crunch
Almonds, pecans, walnuts and cashews combined with popcorn, dark chocolate and caramel. What could be better? Props to you if you can stop after one handful. You know what they say, treat yo’ self.
3. Spiced Cider
This cider tastes like you are literally drinking an apple pie. Need I say more? Heat up this holiday juice for a tasty drink and it will make your house smell amazing. Instead of using milk or water, use this spiced cider to cook oatmeal in the morning for a festive (and nutritious) holiday breakfast kick.
4. Gingerbread Pancake Mix
There’s no stopping these speciality gingerbread pancakes with crystallized ginger pieces. For even more holiday cheer, pair with a delicious chestnut praline latte, the newest Starbucks holiday drink.
5. Decked Out Brittle
This is not your typical peanut brittle since it’s infused with almonds, cashews, cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Yum. Incorporate this decked out brittle into your holiday repertoire for a both sweet and savory dessert.
6. Joyous Joe
Holiday cooking, cleaning and shopping can get tiring. These cute and festive holiday coffee beans will keep you amped up and on your game this holiday season. They come in the most adorable miniature containers and make a great gift for any coffee lover. Varieties include pumpkin spice, wintry blend, peppermint mocha and gingerbread coffee.
7. Chocolate Passport
Longing for a little vacation this holiday season? Try your own personal chocolate passport containing chocolate from eight distinct destinations. Have a taste test with your family and friends to see which chocolate suits your taste buds the best.
