Trader Joe’s die hard fans and customers have revealed their favorite products for 2023. For the 14th year, Trader Joe’s released their Customer Choice Awards. They asked shoppers to pick their favorite item across nine categories: overall, beverage, cheese, entrée, household, produce, snack, sweet/dessert, and vegan/vegetarian. Surprisingly, the viral sensation Mandarin Orange Chicken, was not on the list! Here’s the most popular products that Trader Joe’s customers love.
You won’t find the Mandarin Orange Chicken on this list because TJ retired it. Five other products that made the list in previous years have also excluded. The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets, Unexpected Cheddar, and Soy Chorizo are also living in retirement. To find their answers on their most popular products, Trader Joe’s asked shoppers the important question:
If you were to spend the rest of your life on a deserted island, which nine Trader Joe’s products would you take with you?
The company had over 18,000 customers respond! Here’s what made their favorite list. You can find these products at the Tampa or St. Pete Trader Joe’s location.
