What's Good at Trader Joe's

A few weeks ago I made a very rare visit to Trader Joe's. We have one close, but it's just not on my regular circuit of grocery stores, since I have a lot of great markets like Sprouts nearby. So just before leaving I threw out the question on Twitter

You guys gave me some amazing suggestions! I've been working my way through a few at a time during each visit to Trader Joe's, but here's the list in its fullness for you to enjoy.
  • speculoos cookie butter ✓ (yay for my dutch heritage! I grew up eating the cookies that this spread is made of, so not only is it amazingly delicious, it is nostalgic)
  • wine ✓ 
  • hummus ✓ (E and I eat a good amount of hummus and we were amazed at how much better TJ's is vs. almost every other kind we've tried)
  • pretzel thins ✓ (pair with cookie butter)
  • chocolate covered: pretzel thins ✓ (see above), almonds with sea salt and turbinado sugar ✓ (cannot recommend enough; we are addicted), raisins, caramels, orange sticks, coconut bonbons, s'mores, pistachio toffee
  • goddess dressing ✓ (really good on spinach salad)
  • Italian truffle cheese ✓
  • lemon pasta
  • plain tart frozen yogurt
  • salsa autentica
  • double-roasted salsa
  • dried blueberries
  • mint chocolate covered espresso beans
  • kettle corn
  • mingling olives
  • a fig walked into a bar bars
  • pesto
  • edamame nuggets
  • Crotin goat cheese trio
  • almond milk yogurt
  • pizza dough
  • vegetable tempura birds nests
  • ice cream mochi
  • frozen fire-roasted corn
Anything else?

The loot from @traderjoes. Can't wait to get them in my belly.
