Having been to Trader Joe's in Oregon and California, I kind of knew what to expect when they came to Omaha this winter -- but it was still exciting. On my last trip, I noticed a big "V" on some items. I figured it meant Vegan but I had no idea it was on so many products! So this post is pretty much dedicated to my shopping trip where I found nuggets of Vegan gold.
Probably my greatest find and the answer to my prayers, these Trader Joe's Baked Onion Rings are delicious! In the 90's I was a Funyuns fiend. I would eat so many that my mouth hurt. Now I'm able to re-live the days of Tearjerkers, Girbauds and C&C Music Factory. The Baked Onion Rings are sweeter than Funyuns but that's not a bad thing. Also, they're a bit smaller than Funyuns so you can actually fit them in your mouth.

I saw this in the freezer section and froze. Trader Joe's Fruit Frenzy Bars = yum city! What a flavor combination! The lemony center is my favorite. I'll be stacking up on these when it gets hot this summer. Good stuff!
My next find is Trader Joe's Organic Brown Rice Marshmallow Treats. These were some tasty treats, but mine were a tad hard. I'm not sure if they are normally like that but if they are Trader Joe's should definitely soften them up a bit.
Holy crap, these Trader Joe's Soft-Baked Snickerdoodles are AMAZING! They are so moist and flavorful that I can say without a doubt that they are my favorite cookie right now. Totally a must have.
These Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Wheat Crisps are AMAZING! I'm more of a chip person than cracker person but damn these are good. They have a sweet taste and are excellent for dipping (tastes great with We Can't Say It's Cheese). Vegan power!
