Trader Joe's has been selling Tzatziki for many years, but this year put a twist on the classic Greek condiment. The result? A creamy avocado base with a hint of jalapeños! This decadent dip ($3.99) works great with chips, on burgers and of course, with a kebab.
Outside-In Stuffed Gnocchi
Trader Joe's already offers a tasty lineup of gnocchi, and now they are mixing it up with their new Outside-In Stuffed Gnocchi. The $2.99 freezer meal puts the cheese on the inside, instead of using it as a topping, and be right back––we're buying a whole case.
