This month I picked up the cellphone and known as my native Trader Joe’s to see if they’d one thing I knew I had to strive: the brand new Brown Sugar Non-Dairy Oat Creamer. And in contrast to almost each different grocery retailer, a human answered and bodily went to verify the shelf, and the entire name was over in beneath one pleased minute. Folks at all times surprise why Trader Joe’s is so culty—and it’s largely the Mandarin Orange Hen—however it’s additionally the small particulars just like the wild thought to have an individual reply the cellphone, not an automatic recording. And excellent news: That they had the creamer, and it’s scrumptious.
What else is new in May? Loads of baked items, snacks, and a few frozen pancake puffs. Let’s style and see.

The gluten-free muffins at Trader Joe’s are constantly superb. They go exhausting on the bitter cream and buttermilk to maintain the muffins so moist you possibly can see the condensation in my plastic container. The tops have been elevating from the muffins like a soufflé. I want the cinnamon espresso cake ones to those chocolate-cake-flavored ones, however that’s private. My cashier stated, “Professional tip: Microwave them for like 20 seconds and the chocolate chips inside will soften, so you’ve a chocolate lava cake.” Genius. I did simply that and so must you.
