While double checking the newness of these products, I learned Trader Joe’s had an Organic Reduced Sugar Blueberry Preserves. I also learned my fingers really want to spell “aqua” instead of “aqua.” (Spotted by Sylvia at Trader Joe’s.)

  1. I was at Trader Joe’s today and tried the select harvest coffee as they had it out as samples. I was sipping it as I was walking away and I promptly turned around to rave at the Trader Joe’s employee over this delicious coffee. It’s the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had. I’m not a connoisseur but to my taste buds, it was so smooth. I immediately purchased a canister. I wish it was fair trade but if you can’t have it all. I’m looking forward to a cup tomorrow morning!

  2. I try Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Aminos seasoning sauce and love it. It’s gluten free! It’s a little bit sweet but if you mix it with some sriracha sauce, it would make a perfect dipping sauce for dumplings and pot-stickers. There are only 3 ingredients in it: organic coconut sap, water, and sea salt.

  3. I bought Trader Joe’s blueberry and acai facial scrub. It smells amazing and felt as though it would be a really nice scrub. But opposite to what drew me in from the description, the scrub burned/sting on my face. All I did was wash my makeup off before hand. Honestly I’ve never had this issue before and I really wanted to love the scrub. But the second time was just as the first. It was a stinging/burn feeling so I immediately washed it off. I dared not to leave it on longer, my skin isn’t a test trial. It’s going back if I could return it. Maybe I’ll fall in love with something else, like their coconut body cream. It’s a winner for me.

  4. Does anyone know if the glycerin in the Trader Joe’s blueberry & acai facial scrub is animal derived? Is this a vegan product? Thanks!!
