Trader Joe’s Does it Again

Have I ever found anything that I didn’t care for at Trader Joe’s?  Yes, yes I have.  I was not a fan of the Creamed Honey or the Flattened Bananas.  I think those are the only 2 things.  Great thing about Trader Joe’s is that if you buy something & you don’t like it, take it back & they will give you a store credit towards your next purchase.  Can’t argue with that.  Enough about not liking things – onto my new found love: Trader Joe’s Cranberry Apple Butter.


I found this on my last Trader Joe’s trip when I was picking up some of my favorite pumpkin butter.  I just knew that I wouldn’t be disappointed.  Guess what?  I was right!  This ranks right up there with my pumpkin butter, but Mr. Pumpkin will always be #1 in my heart.  πŸ˜‰ 

So, how did I use this new spread?  I eat a lot of sandwiches for lunch and have grown bored with my turkey/chicken, cheese, sriracha & spinach so I tried out a new combo – roast chicken, strawberry cream cheese, cranberry apple butter, sliced Honeycrisp apple and spinach on toasted Pamela’s Gluten-free Bread. 


What an awesome combination this turned out to be.  I love the crunch that the sliced apple added to the sandwich and the cranberry apple butter added a nice tart bite to it as well.  Great fall treat!

  1. I bought multiple jars of the pumpkin butter based on your recommendation and am really enjoying it (second only to Williams Sonoma pumpkin pecan – but really they’re both excellent, just different). Also loved the superfruit spread you recommended – it goes best w/ almond butter. I recommend their low sugar organic apricot.

    At the same time, I picked up the cranberry apple but haven’t tried it yet – glad to hear it’s a success. I hadn’t thought sandwiches though – what a great thing to have around for Thanksgiving leftover 9or chicken or pork) sandwiches.

    • Glad you liked the pumpkin butter! I am out! I need to hit TJ’s pronto! πŸ˜‰

      Love the CA butter, too, but not as much. It is great on turkey sandwiches!

  2. OMG! you REALLY didn’t like the creamed honey?
    that is my FAVORITE, FAVORITE TJ’s product. LOL
    i’m guessing you aren’t too big of a honey fan?!?!
    cranberry apple butter sounds delish πŸ™‚

    • Erin,

      I have no idea why I didn’t like that. I like honey, so it is odd.

      I had the cranberry apple butter this AM w/ almond butter & cooked honeycrisp apple & cinnamon on my Nature’s Path Buckwheat waffles. YUM!!

  3. Extremely interesting blog post thanks for sharing I have added your blog to my favorites and will be back πŸ™‚ By the way this is off topic but I really like your blogs layout.
