    A mouthful to say, but oh what a mouthful to taste! Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Truffels are the love truffel-children of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups and Dark Chocolate Salted Caramels. (I'm starting to think more items at Trader Joe's should have love children?!)

    The rich dark chocolate wraps its velvety texture around a thick blanket of peanut butter that hugs tightly to salty, buttery caramel. Now that's something to put in your mouth! We believe we can guarantee your mouth will smile as your tastebuds applaud with gratitude and anxiously await the next truffel. For $3.99 you can welcome about 15 truffels into your mouth; one at a time please.


    Obviously, these are a guilty pleasure, so no need to read the nutrition facts of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Truffels.

    From Trader Joe's website 
    It's that time of the year when family gets together and more times than not, a turkey is slowly cooking in the oven. This is great, but for many vegetarians, the Holidays can be a bit of a headache as finding tasty alternatives to traditional favorites can be challenging both in taste and availability. Once again, Trader Joe's has made the turkey tradition for vegetarians much easier with their Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy. Not only does it look delicious, it is 100% vegan made with a blend of ancient grains, soy, wheat, and peas.

    Trader Joe's pride's itself in this roast, bringing it back year after year. For $9.99 you can get 2.5 pounds of Turkey-less Stuffed Roast with Gravy. Even if you are not a vegetarian, we think you might be highly surprised with its delicious taste Trader Joe's swears by.

    Trader Joe's Gluten Free 3 Cheese Pizza is absolutely to-die-for-lishious. The crust is thin and seasoned so it cooks up nice and crispy. The three cheeses (provolone, mozzarella, and manchego), roma tomatoes, and basil blend well together providing a ton of flavor stacked on top of the perfect amount of tomato sauce. We definitely recommend this to everyone even if you don't have a gluten allergy. Eat it as it comes or get creative and add mushrooms, sausage and jalapenos (that's what we like). Since the price is only $4.99 there is no reason to not try this favorite today.




    "Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at supper time, when gluten-free pizza's at Trader Joe's you can have pizza anytime. "

    We have homework for you this weekend...well it's not real homework, more like yumwork. So what's the assignment? Well, the not yet released I LOVE TRADER JOE'S VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK features this yummy recipe and we thought we would share it with you so you could give it a go this weekend.

    Bananas for Gluten-Free Brownies

     

    These brownies have banana coming at you in three ways: mashed in the batter, flattened into a fudgy center, and sprinkled on top for crunchy banana chip bites. The combination makes for a rich and fudgy ’nana brownie that everyone—vegan, gluten-intolerant, and otherwise—can enjoy.



    1 large, ripe banana, mashed

    ⅓ cup mild vegetable oil

    ⅓ cup milk

    1 (16-ounce) package Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Brownie Baking Mix

    ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided

    ½ (4.4-ounce) package Trader Joe’s Nothing But Banana, Flattened

    1 cup crushed Trader Joe’s Banana Chips


    Vegan, Gluten-free


    Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line the bottom with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mash the banana. Mix in the oil and milk with a whisk or spatula, and combine well. In two batches, add the brownie mix and stir until just combined. Spread half of the brownie-banana mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle on ¼ cup of the chocolate chips. Peel out enough flattened banana slices to cover the first layer of the brownie mixture with one single layer. Spread the other half of the brownie-banana mixture over the banana layer. Sprinkle the top with the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips and the banana chips. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, but no thick batter, 32 to 38 minutes. Let the brownies cool on a cooling rack for at least 25 minutes before serving.


    Makes: 16 brownies

Now, after spreading lots of TJ's love and being asked to write a cookbook for years, here it is."

    Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Coffee seems to be the new Kool-aid for morning coffee drinkers. This coffee is such a great item as it carries with it that seasonal reminder that Fall has officially started. Wake yourself up this Fall with the yummy smell and taste of all natural pumpkin spices brought to you by Trader Joe's.
    Check out what Trader Joe's Website had to say about this fall favorite:

    Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Coffee starts as 100% Arabica coffee beans – more specifically, 100% Brazil Cerrado Arabica beans. They're roasted to a medium-dark, Vienna-style roast and then spiked with actual spices, not artificial flavorings. We use things like orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla beans and all natural pumpkin spice flavor. The beans and the spices are ground together, so the flavors have time to merge, mingle and marry. It's like having a very low calorie (okay, no calorie) slice of pumpkin pie, in a cup. That you drink. It's smooth, easy-drinking and, starting now, the official beverage of pumpkin season here at Trader Joe's. We're selling each 14 ounce can of ground Pumpkin Spice Coffee for $8.99, every day – until the end of pumpkin season, that is. So if Pumpkin Spice Coffee is up your alley, don't wait too long; pumpkin season doesn't last forever.
