Things I learned while going through these photos: 1) Geisha coffee is not a Japanese coffee. 2) Boatswain Chocolate Stout is a funky name for an actual non-Trader Joe’s stout and not some funky Trader Joe’s product name. 3) I giggle when I say the word “jackfruit.” (Spotted by Sylvia and Rachel C at Trader Joe’s.)

  1. The Coffee Syrup is GREAT in a cup of warm almond milk (it tastes awful on pancakes). I believe it would also be good on ice cream. The Joe Joe’s truffles are DELICIOUS as is the Boatswain Stout Bar (both are addicting). The Carrot Spirals are great paired with the Tomato Basil sauce. They are super easy to heat up and my kids love them too!

  2. I’ve had both the carrot spirals and the coffee syrup and let me tell you! the carrot spirals are great sauteed then covered in red sauce. My husband is like a child and I have to trick him into eating his veggies. He couldn’t tell this was not pasta until he looked at it. The texture is wonderful and the flavor is good.

    The coffee syrup. a dream come true. We’ve had this gingerbread southern comfort since the holidays and had no idea what to mix it with. We poured almond milk, the gingerbread, and the syrup in a shaker and it came out amazing! Just the syrup with milk is amazing too. I need to go back and get more before they stop making it!
