Trader Joe's Hashbrowns

Forgive me. One day I will look back on some of the photos I've used for this blog and shudder at how I allowed pictures that look like the twilight zone onto the internet. But for now, this will suffice.




"Bacon & eggs totally dig Trader Joe's Hashbrowns." Why yes they do. With some ketchup. Love the whimsical packaging. I happen to have all three items in my fridge right now. Why I haven't made the quintessential all-American breakfast? Laziness. 

Please note that picture at the bottom is a plate with an egg and not an apple with a tumor. They've included a text box that says, "insert hashbrown here."


10 hashbrowns in a row. Snuggled like books on a shelf. $1.99 per package, which comes out to $0.20 per hashbrown. Not microwaveable. These babies need to be baked in the oven or crisped up on the stove. So I suppose I could have made the all-American breakfast if I wanted to...


Deliciously golden brown. They are a wee bigger than a deck of cards and crisp up fairly quickly on the stove. Not much to say on taste-  it tastes like a hashbrown? They look appetizing? They're user-friendly? This version has enough salt for me, but I suppose you could dunk it in ketchup or whatever condiment of choice. I crumbled this into a Tex-Mex salad with some veggies, avocado, chicken, and hot sauce. Delish.

TL;DR: Trader Joe's Hashbrowns. Reliably American breakfast food. I love breakfast. 8 out of 10.

Trader Joe's Crispy Crunchy Mochi Rice Nuggets

THE PACKAGING THO. HOW CAN I RESIST THAT. 

I immediately thought of School of Rock of course. What nuggets have to do with a band, I don't know. Is this another attempt at cultural appropriation? Perhaps not! Leave it to the Japanese to connect random things together usually in an ingenious way. Also, the singer says "Crispy" while the drummer says "Crunchy." THAT IS TOO CUTE. GAHHH I'm sold. 

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
