15 Vegan Holiday Finds at Trader Joe's

Trader Joe's holiday products are now available and I recently took a spin through my local store to see what items were vegan. Unlike their bounty of autumn vegan items (covered HERE), it seems like their winter vegan offerings are a little lacking. However, I was still able to find a bunch of delicious vegan options for the holidays. Some of these are new, others are old favorites, but all of them are only available for a limited time this holiday season, so grab them while you can!

How adorable are these O Tannenbaum Crispy Potato Snacks?! They are 
made out of the same fluffy potato goodness that their bat and ghost 
Halloween chips are made from, and naturally colored green with spinach
 to make them look like adorable evergreen trees!

 Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars, perfect for dunking in some
coffee or tea or for a stand-alone snack!

 Candy Cane Joe Joe's, a seasonal favorite! They are filled with crunchy bits
of peppermint candy canes and are sooooo good! The original Candy Cane 
Joe-Joe's shown above are vegan, but beware the chocolate-covered and 
gluten-free varieties, which are NOT vegan!

 These Dark Chocolate Oranges have been a long-time TJ's favorite! Make
sure you grab the Dark Chocolate, since the Milk Chocolate variety 
obviously isn't vegan.

Winter Wassail is a holiday favorite with its blend of black currant, apple,
and lemon juices, plus cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, and
orange peel. It is yummy chilled or warmed up, or can be used as merry
 mixer with red wine, simmered on the stovetop and served steaming.

These Mini Marshmallows are perfect for putting in hot chocolate or making
delectable holiday baked goods! Like their full-size marshmallows, they are
vegan, yahoo! 

 Made with organic plums, apples, cranberries, cinnamon, and cloves, this 
Organic Holiday Fruit Spread makes a fab addition to toast!

This Chocolate Mint Black Tea is a blend of peppermint leaves, cocoa bean
shells, black tea leaves, carob pods, spearmint leaves, licorice root, chicory,
and natural flavors. Perfect for when you want a hint of chocolate
with your peppermint tea.

 A savory jam made with slow roasted garlic and onions that have been
 simmered in small batches with balsamic vinegar and herbs. Slather this
on toasted bread or serve with a vegan cheese place at a fancy holiday
party (or while hanging in your pj's watching Gremlins).

 Gingerbread Cake and Baking Mix is perfect for a spicy-sweet cake or
 cupcakes and easy enough to whip up when surprise guests show up
 this holiday season.

Love this Chocolate Peppermint Almond Beverage! It is great in coffee for 
an instant peppermint mocha or just straight chilled!

Warning: This light and fluffy garlic spread or dip is addicting! Made out of
just garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of herbs and spices, it is so
simple, yet simply fantastic! And could definitely be used for
 vampire-repellent, so watch out!

Fondue Au Chocolat just happens to be vegan and would be great
to dip strawberries, oranges, pretzels, and vegan marshmallows in!

Dark Chocolate Commendation Bar is HUGE, weighing in at over four
pounds! The Dark Chocolate variety is vegan (obviously avoid the
milk chocolate version), and makes a great gift for choco-holics.

These Chocolate Liqueur Cherries have been around for a few years and many
don't realize that they are vegan! I didn't even think to look at them because
I just assumed they weren't vegan, but surprise, they are!

  1. gosh, was just there and didn't know to look for most of these items. i did buy the Holiday jam and Jo Jo's. I also bought the Marzipan Stollen and Cranberry baguette (great sliced, toasted under broiler and buttered or spread Daya soft blocks of Jalapeno Havarti or Monterey Jack) with their Organic Pinot Grigio (vegan). Going back for a few gifts...the men's grooming box set and pine liquid soap and hand lotion dispenser set. and the box of 4 kinds of olives.
