Halloween is so last month, and Trader Joe’s is celebrating by releasing all their holiday products! Get ready to indulge in plenty of peppermint and chocolate goodies as you gear up for the Christmas season. Keep reading to see everything you’ll need to add to your next shopping list.


Turkey Kit

The holidays aren't just about Christmas! This adorable gingerbread turkey kit hit Trader Joe's just in time for Thanksgiving. It comes with all the cookie, candy and icing pieces you need to make the cutest turkey ever. You can find it on specialty end caps for $6.99.

Turkey Stuffing and Seasoned Kettle Chips

We aren't quite sure what to feel about this new seasonal product––turkey stuffing kettle chips? Either way, it's worth the inexpensive price tag of $1.99 to give this savory snack a try!


Advent Calendars

Run, don't walk to your nearest Trader Joe's because the advent calendars are back! These $.99 chocolate calendars can't be beaten, and come in several designs. These sell out before Thanksgiving, so don't wait to get yours.


Organic Frosted Hot Cocoa Toaster Pastries

Wake up and warm up with TJ's seasonal toaster pastries in Hot Cocoa flavor. The 8-pack of breakfast treats is organic, so you don't have to feel as guilty, and is just $2.99 in the breakfast section.

Hot Cocoa O's

If cereal is more your thing, then you won't be able to get enough of this festive box of Trader O's. A box is just $1.99 and has all the chocolatey goodness you love, with that warm holiday flavor.

Peppermint Pretzel Slims

These one-of-a-kind pretzels will become a mainstay this holiday! TJ's pretzel slims are doused with a creamy coating and then topped with peppermint sprinkles for that perfectly salty and sweet combo. These treats are found in the snack section, usually above the frozen goods.

Candy Cane Joe Joe's

One of Trader Joe's best selling holiday products is finally back! Candy Cane Joe Joe's are a seasonal (and better) take on the year-round cookie, that we can't help eating by the row. Dip in milk or enjoy crushed over ice cream––there's no wrong way to enjoy these treats! You can find them next to the other pre-packaged cookies.

Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's

Candy cane Joe Joe's older, prettier sister is these amazing Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint version. They're pretty much guaranteed to put a little extra on your waistline, but these decadent desserts are well worth it.  The more bitter dark chocolate pairs perfectly with the creamy filling that is all topped with crushed candy canes.

Taste Test of Caramels

Dark chocolate and caramel are paired with some interesting ingredients, like toffee apple, vanilla, maple and more in this Taste Test of Caramels product. This would be the perfect hostess gift!

Astounding Multi-Flavor Joe Joe's

Hello, guilty pleasure! This astounding pack of outrageously covered Joe Joe's is beyond decadent. Four different versions await in this fun, circus-themed package with a variety of sprinkles, crumbles and different chocolates.

Dark Chocolate Orange

This festive dark chocolate orange comes with 20 pull apart segments with creamy orange filling. This is a special seasonal item that just feels right around the holidays. It's usually above the freezers along with other holiday treats.

Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Cremes

This holiday favorite is made even better by the addition of dark chocolate and crushed candy canes. Soft, creamy and minty centers pair so well with their dark chocolate counterparts. It's like a bite of Christmas!

Chocolate Liqueur Cherries

If there's ever a dark chocolate covered cherry season, it's Christmas! This liqueur version is definitely for adults only (it has an alcohol content of up to 4.4%) and would be perfect for an at-home date night this holiday.


Enjoy German treats when you pick up a box of traditional Pfeffernüsse this holiday. The spiced cookies are covered in powdered sugar and pair well with tea and coffee. You can find them near the other holiday cookies.

Dark Chocolate Minty Mallows

Can you ever have enough peppermint during this time of year? Trader Joe's doesn't think so! Another popular product is these delightful Dark Chocolate Minty Mallows. They're made using peppermint marshmallows and then covered in dark chocolate for the ultimate light and fluffy treat.

Coffee Cup Celebration

Give the gift of coffee this holiday! This Coffee Cup Celebration assortment comes with five different varieties of single serve cups. Wake up and pick between flavors like wintry blend, chocolate mint and caramel, and enjoy with a cookie or two.

Sugar Glazed Lebkuchen

Trader Joe's Lebkuchen cookies are made in Nuremberg, Germany! The light, sugar glazed cookies are a German favorite and are perfect for the holidays. Check out the bakery section to snag a package of these!

Mini Gingerbread Men

Enjoy some gingerbread, without wasting time on a house you'll never eat. These adorable mini Gingerbread Men have a white fudge icing and fit in the palm of your hand. They are found near the other holiday treats.

Dark Chocolate Stars

Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered shortbread cookies are to die for! The perfectly-sized stars are doused in rich chocolate and topped with sprinkles. These are thoroughly enjoyed with a cup of coffee––just sayin'.

Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Stars

Mint chocolate shortbread cookies are coated with dark chocolate in this treat. These differ from their sister cookie in that they're smaller, and made with mint-infused shortbread. We say, why not have one of each?
