While Trader Joe’s might be known for its Two-Buck Chuck, irresistible mini chocolate peanut butter cups, cauliflower gnocchi and more, some of the most exciting merchandise are the new items that come and go. You never know what you’ll find when you walk through the doors.
For instance, Trader Joe’s new Organic Fruit Watermelon Spread is sure to be a summertime hit. Each ten-ounce jar retails for $2.69 and according to the grocery store, it’s been flying off the shelves. You might want to grab one while it’s still available, but know that Trader Joe’s doesn’t offer pickup or delivery.
What Is Watermelon Spread?
Trader Joe’s watermelon spread consists of 60% organic watermelon purée, which makes it a wholesome, fruity jam. (Learn the difference between jam and jelly.) It also means it’s packed with real, refreshing melon flavor. The spread gets sweetness from organic cane sugar and a little tartness—and pink color—from cherry juice.
How Do You Use Watermelon Spread?
The possibilities are practically endless. You can use this spread anywhere you might use jelly or jam. For example, as a fun twist on your typical PB&J, as an unexpected glaze for cheesecake or simply smeared on top of a nice piece of buttered toast. Mmm!
