Trader Joe’s is out to help you relive your childhood memories with its new vegan sugar cookies.
Fans of the affordable grocery store chain began spotting the “Twinkling Trees,” Christmas tree-shaped cookies coated with sparkling green sugar, earlier this month. Like with most Trader Joe’s vegan holiday finds (like its vegan pumpkin sugar cookies), people were hyped.
The Twinkling Trees aren’t the only festive vegan treats that can be found in stores this season. The chain’s Peppermint Joe-Joe’s – Trader Joe’s version of Oreos with candy cane pieces in the cream – are free from animal products. There are also soft-baked Gingerbread Oat Bars drizzled with dairy-free icing, a nutty Vegan Banana Bread, maple sandwich cookies, gelatin-free gummies, and for coffee-lovers, a Cocoa Peppermint Almond Creamer.

Affordable Vegan Groceries in the US
Trader Joe’s also carries vegan cookie options all year round. It offers soft-baked snickerdoodles similar to the ones made by allergen-friendly brand Enjoy Life and Lenny & Larry’s plant-based protein cookies. Depending on where you live, you might even find bags of vegan chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal cookies.
Beyond cookies, Trader Joe’s is great for affordable vegan meat including tempeh, tofu, Tofurky sausages, chicken-less tenders, and soyrizo, a meatless chorizo made from soy protein. It’s also great for dairy-free milk, vegan ready meals, fresh and frozen produce, and dry pantry staples. The grocery store’s vegan products have a devout following on social media, where fans share new product finds and plant-based recipe ideas.
Trader Joe’s isn’t alone in catering to the demand for plant-based groceries in the US. Earlier this year Aldi, which owns Trader Joe’s, announced the launch of new vegan products and ready-meals, coinciding with the redesign of its store layout. The range features meatless meats and burgers sold under the private label “Earth Grown,” spiralized veggie noodles, and healthier grab-and-go options.
