When it comes to fun and funky—but still totally affordable—foods, Trader Joe’s is my go-to destination. After shopping there for years, I’ve got my favorites (chocolate-covered peanut butter pretzels, anyone?). But if you’re like me, you’re curious what everyone else is loving! Check out the most-loved TJ’s items of 2017, and then think about adding a few to your grocery list for 2018!

Trader Joe’s top-rated item overall? Mandarin Orange Chicken. Consisting of crispy breaded chicken tossed in a tangy orange sauce, this entree is a Chinese carryout classic. If you’re feeling like more than opening a bag, try these takeaway copycats.
