Trader Joe’s Selling Everything And The Elote Greek Yogurt Style Dip

Though we may question the actual inspo behind all of Trader Joe’s unlikely food products and the combos that make them so appealing, it’s pretty much guaranteed that they’re going to taste good. Take for instance this potential banger called Everything and the Elote Greek Style Yogurt Dip.

This unlikely dip does set off a light bulb on some Eureka type shit, considering the fact that dipping your chips in something elote flavored really would be fire. Trader Joe’s site says the Greek Style Yogurt Dip is spiced up with the brand’s popular Everything But the Elote Seasoning Blend along with a bold squad of garlic, Parmesan cheese, chipotle pepper powder, and kernels of sweet yellow corn.

Crazy as it seems on paper, a scoop of this on your chip really would set off an ideal bite. An 80z. tub is now on sale at Trader Joe’s locations for $3.49.

Viral TikTok Clip Brings Up Hilarious Theory On Trader Joe’s Unique Products

trader joe’s is the twilight zone of grocery stores

♬ original sound – z (she/they)

In the hilarious TikTok clip above from @cowbabyzee, she brings up a funny possibility on just why Trader Joe’s items are so damn unique, even borderline wacky.

“So my hot take of today is that I don’t think Trader Joe’s is real. I think Trader Joe’s dropped in from an alternate reality. And I think that if we all just took a little bit more time to stare at Trader Joe’s products, we would realize that it looks like aliens trying to interpret human grocery items.”

I mean, it’s a funny premise, sure. Until you suddenly realize that a tub of Nashville Hot Cream Cheese with Everything Bagel Seasoning really would look right at home on a Trader Joe’s grocery aisle.

Trader Joe’s Turns Real Onions Into New ONION CHIPS

I’ve spent the better part of my life enjoying onion-flavored chips. It’s even gotten to the point where I’d eat so much; my breath would taste as if I had downed an actual onion itself.

To my delight, Trader Joe’s newest snack bridges the gap between chips and pure unadulterated onion in their new Crispy Onion Chips.

The chips are made with actual onion slices, rice bran oil, and salt and are probably the closest thing you can get to snacking on real onions.

You can find them in the What’s New section of your local Trader Joe’s stores.

Wonder how they’ll pair with Bloomin’ Onion sauce?

Trader Joe’s Launches Their Version Of TIM TAMS, An Iconic Aussie Snack

One of Australia’s most iconic snacks, the Tim Tam, is getting a tasty tribute from Trader Joe’s.

The grocery store’s newest in-house product is Aussie-Style Chocolate Creme Sandwich Cookies, which, according to the product label, are inspired by a popular snack from Australia. A Trader Joe’s associate confirmed to Foodbeast that their inspiration is the iconic Tim Tam.

For those not in the know, Tim Tams were created in Australia by biscuit company Arnott’s. They consist of a chocolate creme filling, chocolate sandwich cookies, and an encasing of more chocolate on top.

Trader Joe’s version hits all of the marks when it comes to matching that cookie. It also has a slightly sweeter taste, and a little richer chocolate flavor, upon trying them.

The best things to do with these Tim Tam replicas is to bite off part of the end on either side, then drink through the cookie sandwich as if it were a straw. The “Tim Tam Slam,” as it’s called, goes best with coffee or hot chocolate.

With Trader Joe’s making their own version, a lot more people are gonna to get know the Slam and transform their coffee drinking experience.

The lauded Candy Cane is arguably one of the most iconic confections during the Christmas season. Sorry, gingerbread fans. 

To kick off the spirit of the holidays, Trader Joe’s has added a refreshing new snack that comes in the form of Candy Cane Chocolate Covered Almonds

Spotted by Patty of @traderjoesaficionado, the sweet new snack has hit Trader Joe’s shelves. It features roasted almonds dipped in dark chocolate, covered again in white chocolate, and coated with candy cane bits. 

Fans of the prolific candy cane will definitely want to check these out next time they’re at a Trader Joe’s. With everything going on in the world, the holiday season doesn’t feel as magical as in previous years. Still, hopefully, these will help close the gap a little. 

Stay safe and happy holidays, everyone.
