The secret’s out — Trader Joe’s is pretty much the best. Or, at least it’s in our top three. From Hawaiian-shirt-clad clerks to dirt cheap prices to Two Buck Chuck wines, this hipster-loving, farm-fresh-feeling, socially conscious grocery store is tough to beat. And the store’s popularity doesn’t seem to be losing steam any time soon.
In celebration of Trader Joe’s 50th anniversary, this month’s Fearless Flyer is treating us to something special — the top 50 products of all time! And because there are so many to choose from, we’re highlighting 15 of our absolute favorites, followed by the rest of the items that made the list.
1. Unexpected Cheddar
Cost: $3.99 for a seven ounce piece
You might be wondering what could possibly be so unexpected about this Unexpected Cheddar. But the truth is, it really does have a lot to offer. It’s been a best-seller ever since it hit the shelves back in 2011, and people love it for a reason. The creamy texture is sprinkled with hints of Parmesan, delivering an explosion of cheesy flavors both expected and unexpected with every bite.
