9 THINGS IN MY TRADER JOES CART | WINTER EDITION

I love when Trader Joe’s brings out all the holiday items. There is nothing more fun than exploring the isles and finding some holiday favorites to add to my cart. I wanted to share with you which items I pick up every year around the holidays.

HOT CHOCOLATE STICKS

These are my favorite hot chocolate things EVER! You warm up some milk and just stir until they dissolve. The best part is that they are real chocolate and not a powder. So good, especially if you like rich and creamy cocoa. I usually keep these at work for cold winter days.

GLUTEN FREE CANDY CANE JOE-JOE’S

These are a great option for all of my fellow gluten free people who always miss out on the fun holiday flavors that Oreo always come out with during the holiday season.

VEGAN MINT + CHIP BON BONS

These little bites of heaven came out a few years ago, but they were SO hard to get my hands on them. I didn’t actually get to try them until this year. All I can say is I am obsessed with them, and if you see them don’t even think twice– just put them in your cart.

LA COLOMBE PEPPERMINT MOCHA

These are a staple I keep at work during this time of year. They are so delicious and I really like they are not too pepperminty.

COOKIE MUG HANGERS

How cute are these lil guys?! I mean need I say more? These are the perfect addition to hot chocolate or coffee during the Christmas season.

CAULIFLOWER PANCAKES

These are an easy and fun way to shake up breakfast. They taste so good and I personally love them with a little bit of pepper and ketchup on top.

FESTIVE CHEESES

Tis the season for many, many charcuterie boards– at least in my life! I love the holiday cheese that is available at TJ’s during the month of December. My personal favorites are the stilton with fruit, lemon ricotta, and the cinnamon cheese. I recently picked up this fondue cheese blend and it is so good and easy!

COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM

I try to limit my dairy and this honestly is my favorite whipped cream. It is so creamy and light with a hint of coconut flavor.

MINI PEPPERMINT MARSHMALLOWS

These little marshmallows are the perfect topping to hot cocoa or ice cream. I love that the peppermint flavor isn’t too strong and the size is perfect.

What do you usually get during this time of year at Trader Joes? I would love to know so I can try it out for myself. Happy shopping!
