Future cult-classic alert! These snack puffs are inspired by the super-popular cheese & pepper pasta dish, and they're really tasty. The puffs are made from corn & rice and VERY puffy—we love the large serving size! People are going nuts for these cheesy snacks, so grab a bag ASAP.

"Holy moly, that's vegan?" That was Lisa's honest initial reaction upon tasting this incredible dressing. And everyone's heads nearly exploded when they learned that it was made using cauliflower and almond butter… but all you taste is a light, creamy, refreshing dressing with the perfect amount of dill. We're OBSESSED. This dressing is found in the refrigerated produce case, and you need it.

Trader Joe’s Sriracha Shrimp Bowl

11.3-oz. bowl: 320 calories, 8g total fat (1.5g sat. fat), 690mg sodium, 47g carbs, <1 fiber, 3g total sugars (2g added sugars), 15g protein

We love stashing frozen entrees in the freezer for quickie meals, and this one definitely gets our vote. You get a bowl of brown & red rice cooked flawlessly, topped with petite shrimp and Asian-style vegetables in a sriracha sauce that's not too spicy, a little sweet, and a little smoky. A fully respectable meal right there! Find it in the freezer section.

Trader Joe’s Pizza Seasoned Bread Cheese

1 oz. (about 1 inch cube): 100 calories, 6g total fat (5g sat. fat), 190mg sodium, <1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g total sugars (0g added sugars), 6g protein
WW Points® value 4*
If it takes you a bit to comprehend what this product is, you're not alone: It's essentially a Finnish-style cheese that's been seasoned like pizza—the texture is a bit breadlike, but there's no bread involved. Cook it up in the microwave or skillet until it gets a bit crisp, and enjoy! This treat is SO tasty and fun... Grab some from the cheese section.
