We Bought All The Holiday Products At Trader Joe's — & Ranked Them

Thanksgiving's turkey is toast and pumpkin-spice has officially passed (RIP). But before we jump ahead of ourselves into eye rolls at the new onslaught of seasonal overkill (think gingerbread and peppermint-flavored everything), there actually is something out there to get psyched about: the insane holiday spread at Trader Joe's.
TJ's is known for rolling out an ultimate assortment of festively-flavored products succinctly tied to our favorite seasons and their respective celebrations. We're talking about all the funky snacks and whimsical treats imaginable — and more than a few that are unimaginable, too. Early this morning we took a trip to the nearest TJ's and bought up every single limited edition holiday good that we could get our hands on. And then we proceeded to eat and rank them all based on their intensity of festive flavor, seasonal novelty wow factor, and overall gift-ability.
Scroll forth to discover the magic for yourselves as we unwrap 28 of the most delicious and festive holiday finds that Trader Joe's has to offer — from candy cane cookies, to hot cocoa-flavored cereal, mini frosted gingerbread men, minty dark chocolate stars, and even a tin of something spectacular called Jingle Jangle. These wintry treats are more than just ideal snacking material, some of them would also make impressive hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, and pretty party treats. Trust us when we say, you're going to want to take a trip ASAP — before those chocolate-covered peppermint Joe-Joe's disappear for good.
