Ah, the luck o’ the Irish. It kind of looks like your rainbow just ended at a tasty pot of gold. In other words, St. Patrick's Day-themed foods at Trader Joe's are and they’re waaaaay better than a four-leaf clover. Even though corned beef and cabbage may be a traditional staple, and that minty green Shamrock Shake is a pop culture food icon, Trader Joe’s has their own brand of St. Paddy’s Day yum! So what does Trader Joe’s have in store for your St. Patrick’s Day feast?
Um, yum. Let’s start with the fact that this scone-shaped Irish Soda Bread has an adorable name. And then there’s the taste. This not-so-low-carb treat is made with real buttermilk and butter, along with raisins and caraway seeds.
So what are bangers anyway? Well, they’re sausages — Irish style. Trader Joe’s Irish Bangers are made from all-natural pork that’s raised with no hormones or antibiotics. But that’s not all. These savory treats are 5% rusk. What’s rusk? It’s a twice-baked biscuit that’s added in for texture and, of course, flavor.
Irish Breakfast Tea
This bold tea is an early morning alternative to your usual cup of coffee. But then again, you can have it any time of the day. If you’re going for a night-time mug, consider opting for this tea’s decaffeinated cousin.
Steak & Stout Pies
Mmm. The buttery pastry shell is everything you’d imagine it is. Oh, but that’s not all this frozen option has to offer. The inside is filled with beef in a stout-based gravy, plenty of potatoes, carrots, celery, mushrooms and onions.
Corned Beef and Cabbage
It’s a St. Patrick’s Day staple. Right? Trader Joe’s has the traditional corned beef to cook alongside with a heaping serving of cabbage. Why stop there? Add in your favorite type of potatoes too!
