6 New Trader Joe's Items, Reviewed By Someone Who Has Basically Tasted Everything Else On TJ's Shelves

Some of them I will absolutely buy again — and others, not so much....

Hi! I'm Hannah, and you may or may not know by now, but I'm a major Trader Joe's fan. I've tried more Trader Joe's products than I would like to admit, and I'm always keeping an eye out for new additions to the grocery aisles I know like the back of my hand.

On a recent spring grocery trip, I noticed that my local Trader Joe's was stocked with some pretty enticing options I'd never tried before. So, I decided to do a little haul and taste test several of them.

Here's what I came home with:

A variety of Trader Joe's items.

And here's what I honestly thought of all of them:

1. Spicy Tempura Seaweed Snacks, $3.29

Ooooh, these are good, and they definitely pack some heat.

2. Ube Pretzels: $2.99

A bag of ube pretzels.

I always forget how mini these candy coated pretzels are. As advertised, they really are adorably teeny tiny.

3. Vegan "Poke" (Marinated Beets): $4.99

Not only was this stuff better than I was expecting, but I actually really enjoyed it.

4. Strawberries & Cream Gelato: $3.49

A pint of strawberries and cream gelato.

I'd seen a lot of people raving about this ice cream on social media, but I personally don't get all the hype.

5. Perfectly Pickled Pups: $4.99

A package of pickled pigs in a blanket.

These aren't your traditional cocktail franks.

And sadly, I wasn't a huge fan of these.

6. Calabrian Chili Spicy Pasta Sauce: $4.99

Unfortunately, this Calabrian chili pasta sauce is going to fall under that do-not-buy-again category for me.
