These Were The Most Popular Trader Joe's Products Of 2016

Last week Trader Joe's shared its picks for the greatest Fearless Flyer hits of 2016. But, that wasn't the end-of-year list we were waiting for. Every year the supermarket chain polls its shoppers to find the most popular products. And since our favorite way to discover new staples is via other TJ's fanatics, we're always excited to see what fellow customers are buying.

For the 8th Annual Customer Choice Awards, there were 14 categories. They included favorite overall, favorite snack, favorite candy, etc. In addition to the winners, each category also featured four runner up products. If you do the math, that's 70 new products to try. (That is if they haven't already made it into our carts at one point or another.) Interestingly, a lot of the winners and runner-ups were the same as last year, which just goes to show that despite all the newbies, many shoppers still sticks to their go-to TJ's faves.

Take a look at all the winners ahead and let us know if they top your personal grocery list in the comments.
