Apr 24 2023

Spotted on Shelves… Trader Joe's Edition!

We tried a ton of great foods in our last couple Trader Joe's episodes of the Hungry Girl podcast, and now we’re shouting out a few more standouts. We can't just let you miss out on the good stuff! (Pro tip: Subscribe to the podcast, so you get all the info right away.)

Trader Joe’s Trail Mix Crackers

4 crackers: 170 calories, 8g total fat (2.5g sat. fat), 95mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2g fiber, 4g total sugars (2g added sugars), 5g protein
WW Points® value 6*
Meet our favorite new crackers! The base is slightly sweet and topped off with cheese and a blend of crispy mung beans, seeds, cashews, and raisins. The overall effect is a scary-delicious, sweet & savory snack you'll fall for immediately. They'd be great paired with some soft, creamy cheese… YUM.

Trader Joe’s Chicken Meatballs

4 meatballs: 150 calories, 9g total fat (2g sat. fat), 300mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g total sugars (0g added sugars), 16g protein
WW Points® value 4*
We love to keep ready-to-eat protein around, but precooked meatballs aren't always safe for the gluten-free crowd. These seasoned poultry meatballs, however, are gluten free, fully cooked, and such great easy meal starters… Not gonna lie, we’d snack on them too. They'll be waiting for you in the refrigerated case.

Trader Joe's Tirokafteri Spicy Greek 3-Cheese Spread with Roasted Red Peppers

2 tbsp.: 60 calories, 5g total fat (1.5g sat. fat), 150mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g total sugars (0g added sugars), 2g protein
WW Points® value 2*
Take your taste buds on a Mediterranean vacation! This new spread from TJ's is sophisticated and tasty. The trio of cheeses (anthotyros, white, and feta) is blended up with sweet & tangy peppers. We’ll be enjoying it with veggies and as a saucy topper for chicken and shrimp. Find it in the refrigerated dip section.

Target Find of the Day: Just $11!
