Vegan Finds at Trader Joe’s

Vegan MoFo Day #13!

While I’d been in a Trader Joe’s before, I guess I hadn’t ever really paid attention until I worked there. The store has been quite the buzz, what with the article about it in Fortune Magazine and all. After working there for a couple months, I decided to take a break from recipe-makin’ and highlight some of my favorite items for you all with the prices from my store (YMMV). Plus, I still have tons of leftovers from my past posts in the fridge and need time to eat them!

  3. Just cruising the MoFo feed and saw your post. I am really surprised by some of these finds! I shop at Trader Joes all the time and I would never think to even check out those Snickerdoodles or Apple Strudels. I really hope my TJ’s has those gyoza, sounds super tasty!

  4. I think you’re prices are the same as they are in Brooklyn. And Brooklyn seems to be the same as New York. I mean they’re pretty cheap as it is, I couldn’t see them adjusting it too much to fit the standard of living.

  5. I just love Trader Joes! They have so many delicious vegan foods. My lastest favorite are the Lentil Potato Curls. They are so addictive! Would you mind if I linked to this post on my blog? I think it is a great way to show people how many vegan options are out there.

  7. Hi Nicole, I absolutely love the coconut milk mochi too!!! Did you know Trader Joe’s is discontinuing the Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Mochi? I wrote and they confirmed it but it’s fairly recent. I started a petition to possibly help bring it back since it’s soooo good and as someone who doesn’t have dairy, it’s the best thing ever. You can add to http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-trader-joes-coconut-milk-mochi/ as well as feel free to share the link. Thanks so much! I hope this works!
