10 New Trader Joe's Products to Be Thankful for This November
As much as we would love for every dish on our Thanksgiving table to be homemade, that's just not a realistic goal for most of us. Thankfully, Trader Joe's is here to help you out with some of the food, drinks and decorations this year.
Their Fearless Flyer Thanksgiving Guide just dropped, and we are feeling inspired to fill our table with so many of these products this Turkey Day. Many of their Thanksgiving products are hitting store shelves right now to get you prepped for the big day. Here are the 10 products we're most excited about trying.
Holiday Herb Rolls
One of the easiest ways to lighten your load on Thanksgiving is to let someone else bake those rolls. While we consider them an important staple of our holiday plates, store-bought rolls are just fine with us. Plus, these are loaded with fragrant parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary and marjoram. Yum! You can find a package of 12 for just $2.49.
Whether you spatchcock, grill, roast or deep-fry your turkey, you'll want to pick it up at TJ's this year. Prices for these turkeys start at just $1.99 per pound and range from 10-22 pounds, depending on your family's needs. Choose from All Natural Brined Fresh Young Turkeys, All Natural Glatt Kosher Fresh Young Turkeys, Glatt Kosher Turkeys, Organic Free Range Young Turkeys and Organic Turkeys.
We would love to channel our inner Great British Baking Show contestant for all our holiday pies, but sometimes you have to choose the best corners to cut. Trader Joe's has two tasty fill-and-bake options—a pack of two crusts ready to fill your trusty baking dish and a gluten-free option that comes in its own pie tin, ready for use. Their standard pie crusts are $3.99 and the gluten-free option is $3.49.
Organic Savory Vegan Gravy
This heat-and-eat vegan gravy from TJ's is a great Turkey Day shortcut (and you can heat it up right before serving!) Made with coconut milk, tamari soy sauce, tamarind paste and other Thanksgiving herbs, even the meat-eaters in your family will want to load this on their mashed potatoes! Snag it for $3.79 per 16-ounce container.
Fall Table Topper
Between entertaining your family and cooking up an impressive Thanksgiving feast, decor is probably the last thing you want to worry about this time of year. Leave it to Trader Joe's to get your table looking spiffy with these autumnal table toppers full of seasonal flowers and greenery. You can pick one up for $12.99.
Cranberry Chevre and Organic Cracker Assortment
Looking for the perfect festive appetizer to keep everyone happy until turkey time? Look no further than this tasty combo. This cranberry goat cheese log is sure to please and adds a sweet-tart flavor to this creamy and tangy cheese. And the Organic Cracker Assortment comes with six different varieties for every type of snacker. Together, this whole appetizer just costs $7.98!
Hosting Thanksgiving can be pretty pricey, and there's no need to splurge on extra libations. Trader Joe's has some excellent wines at great prices, and their Incanto Prosecco is here just in time for the holiday season. This crisp wine has hints of apricot, almond and peach, and you can snag a bottle for just $12.99.
Between the turkey and seemingly endless sides, dessert might be the last thing you want to add onto your *metaphorical* plate. Luckily, Trader Joe's is selling a traditional pumpkin pie for the holiday season, and it feeds 6-8 guests for just $5.99. Don't worry, it'll be our little secret.
Organic Fair Trade Five-Country Espresso
OK, this one may feel a little out of place, but anyone who has ever hosted Thanksgiving knows coffee in all (caffeinated) forms is a Turkey Day essential. This product is made with beans from some of the world's best coffee-growing regions—El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru and Indonesia. For just $8.99, you have 13-ounces of hot and cozy fuel to power you through a long weekend of cooking, small talk and close quarters.
Whether you eat gluten or not, TJ's has a stuffing mix for you. Choose from a traditional Cornbread Stuffing Mix made with cornbread croutons or a Gluten-Free Stuffing Mix made from tapioca, potato and various rice flours. Just add butter and water, and voila! You have everyone's favorite carb-heavy side dish. You can find the cornbread variety for $3.99 and the gluten-free option for $5.99.
