Nov 4 2019

Spotted on Shelves… Trader Joe's Edition!

Sweet Rose Coconut Whipped Topping

2 tbsp.: 10 calories, 0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 0*

With the holiday season creeping closer, it's always good to have a can of your favorite whipped topping on hand. And this non-dairy find is our hands-down new favorite! It’s unbelievably delicious: super creamy and coconutty with just the right amount of sweetness. Whether or not you avoid dairy, this dessert topping is a MUST-TRY.

Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoned Smoked Salmon

2 slices (56g): 80 calories, 3.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 600mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 11g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

This one’s a no-brainer -- OF COURSE we want smoked salmon speckled with everything bagel seasoning. Try it stuffed inside egg whites or piled onto cucumber slices spread with cream cheese. It’s so good, we snack on it straight! We can’t wait to see what the everything bagel trend has in store for us next…

Trader Joe's Tomato & Basil Hummus Dip

2 tbsp.: 35 calories, 2g total fat (0g sat fat), 120mg sodium, 4g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 1*

This is no ordinary hummus… It's hummus that tastes like pizza! This means that whatever you dip into it -- raw veggies, baked pita chips -- will also taste like pizza. Would we spread it onto whole-grain crackers and top it off with turkey pepperoni? You bet we would! We recommend you do the same…
