My mood instantly changes when I walk into a Trader Joe’s. I walk into TJ’s and feel like I am a part of something, something special, which is exactly why I felt it was okay to use the name TJ’s instead of Trader Joe’s just now.

If you haven’t gotten the Trader Joe’s experience yet I suggest you do, but for the ones who know the ins and outs to the greatest grocery store on planet earth, you’ll appreciate these rankings. Here are the best food items at Trader Joe’s.

5. Philly Cheesesteak Bao Buns

Don’t knock it until you try it. These buns pack a mean punch and get every dinner off on the right foot. Knock a few of these back before your dinner entree that night and it’s game over. You heard it here first.

4. Mildly Sweet & Spicy Beef and Broccoli

Just an absolute game-changer no matter which way you shape it. Haven’t had a batch of this that didn’t rock my world. Serve this for two on a date night with the lady and you’re on your way to the promise land.

3. Pork and Ginger Soup Dumplings

It’s not even fair what these things do to an average set of taste buds. I pipe these down all day long and have no guilt what so ever while doing so. They are light on the stomach yet a force to be reckoned with.

2. Everything But The Bagel Seasoning Blend

Is it crazy that I have a seasoning item in the No. 2 slot? Maybe. But if you’ve ever had the luxury of throwing this down on some eggs or a bagel, you know.

1. Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

If you go out to get this and are not happy with the results then it’s either on your microwave or you, not the macaroni. I am not a butternut squash guy myself but can assure you, this absolutely slaps.
