We cannot wait for this concept to be EVERYWHERE. These veggie noodles—pure kohlrabi, nothing added—are a knockout hit! Kohlrabi is related to cabbage, but we think it tastes even better: very mild and ever-so-slightly sweet. The thin, steam-in-the-bag shreds make a delicious carb swap or super-sizer. They'd be great in a veggie noodle soup, mixed with whole-grain spaghetti in marinara, and more. You heard it here: Kohlrabi is a star! Grab a bag from the refrigerated produce section.

Trader Joe's Fancy Cheese Crunchies Cheese + Truffle Flavored Corn Snacks

1 oz. (about 32 pieces): 140 calories, 7g total fat (1g sat. fat), 260mg sodium, 16g carbs, <1g fiber, 2g total sugars (1g added sugars), 2g protein
WW Points® value 4*
What is even happening here?! These snacks have no business being this amazing, and yet here we are! They taste like Cheetos for fancy people. The rich truffle flavor pairs perfectly with the cheddar and Parm. When we tried them, we almost stopped recording the podcast episode so we could savor the entire bag. Possibly Trader Joe's best crunchy snack of all time… Yeah, we said it!

Trader Joe's Vegan Buffalo Style Dip

2 tbsp.: 40 calories, 3g total fat (0g sat. fat), 250mg sodium, 3g carbs, <1g fiber, <1g total sugars (0g added sugars), 1g protein
WW Points® value 1*
Some vegan dips are meant to taste creamy and cheesy, but that's not what's going on here. This dip tastes like an incredibly yummy veggie puree with a solid kick of heat, and we adore it. Made from cauliflower, pumpkin seed kernels, and other veggies, it has a great consistency (not too thick) and would be great as a salad dressing. How good is it? We'd eat it on celery… and we're not even that nuts about celery! Select a tub from Trader Joe's legendary refrigerated dip case.
