Italian artisan heart-shaped pasta

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, these heart-shaped noodles will be the perfect touch to a romantic homemade dinner or even one that the kids will adore. Use them in soup, homemade mac and cheese, or with a delicious and authentic Italian feast to feed your better half on the holiday for lovers. Rest easy knowing all ingredients in this pasta are organic.

Organic date syrup

This deliciously sweet organic syrup is made only with Deglet Noor dates and nothing else. It’s completely natural and incredibly delicious as a substitute for maple or agave syrup. Not only can it be used on pancakes and French toast, but it’s also great at sweetening up your yogurt, ice cream, or oatmeal. It pairs excellently with both sweet treats and savory meals like grilled cheese.


Dipping sauces take your finger foods and elevate them to the next level. Trader Joe’s jumped into the secret sauce industry with their Magnifisauce, which is self-described as “a tangy sauce of secret proportions.” Now the grocery store has another incredible sauce offering. Incredisauce, that is. The new flavor has been dubbed “a sweet, tangy, smoky flavored dipping sauce.”

Customers described the previously released Magnifisauce as a close copycat to In-N-Out Burger’s secret sauce. Trader Joe’s fans are wondering, however, if the new Incredisauce will be a sweet mustard-like sauce that’s also great for fries or nuggets. Some even suspect, or more accurately, hope, that it might be a copycat of the beloved Chick-fil-A sauce.
