The most common foods purchased at Trader Joes include Triple Ginger Snaps, Speculoos Cookie Butter, Joe Joe's Cookies, Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole, and Charles Shaw Wine. These items all retail for under $4, as of 2015.
Trader Joe's Triple Ginger Snaps are a crunchy cookie containing crystallized ginger. The cookie's crunch gives way to a chewy inside created with ingredients such as ginger puree and ground ginger. The cookies are sold in 14-ounce packages.
Speculoos Cookie Butter is a diverse snack with the consistency of peanut butter and the taste of a snickerdoodle. It can be eaten on apples, bread or waffles.
Joe Joe's Cookies are Trader Joe's version of the Oreo. They regularly come in vanilla and chocolate cream, but seasonal favorites such as Candy Cane Joe Joe's are also available.
Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole is made with Greek yogurt, yielding 50 percent less fat and 40 percent fewer calories than normal guacamole. The yogurt's addition lends a tart quality to the guacamole, which is full of large chunks of jalapeño, tomato and avocado.
Charles Shaw Wine, sometimes known as Two Buck Chuck, comes in many varietals at the low price of around $2.50. Reviews hail the cabernet sauvignon and merlot as the best picks; consumers are generally unhappy with the sauvignon blanc.
