It’s no secret Trader Joe’s has a cult following

From heat-and-eat meals and fun florals to unique products you can’t find anywhere else, it can be hard to know where to start as a TJ’s newbie. Luckily, the grocer just released the results of its 14th annual Trader Joe’s Customer Choice Awards, which highlights fan faves. In a new twist for 2023, five of Trader Joe’s best products have been retired to make room for new contenders, but don’t worry, you can see them in the Trader Joe’s Best Product Hall of Fame. Check out which products earned the prestigious honor this year.

Favorite Overall: Chili & Lime Flavored Rolled Corn Tortilla Chips

Favorite Beverage: Sparkling Honeycrisp Apple Juice Beverage

Honeycrisp sparkling apple juice is one of Trader Joe's best products according to customers

Sweet and (ahem) crispy, Honeycrisp is the best apple variety out there (we think, anyway), so it's no surprise that TJ's three-ingredient sparkling apple juice topped the list as the favorite beverage this year. 


  • Triple Ginger Brew (seasonal) 
  • Sparkling Peach Black Tea with Peach Juice
  • Sparkling Cranberry & Ginger Beverage
  • Non-Dairy Brown Sugar Oat Creamer 

Favorite Cheese: Cheddar with Caramelized Onions

Cheddar with caramelized onions won a Trader Joe's customer choice award

This English cheddar is a creamy, full-bodied, cheese mixed with sweet caramelized onions. Gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, anyone? 


  • Syrah Soaked Toscano
  • Baked Lemon Ricotta (seasonal) 
  • Blueberry & Vanilla Chèvre
  • Brie (various)

#1 Entree: Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice

  • Chicken Tikka Masala
  • Kung Pao Chicken
  • Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese (seasonal) 
  • BBQ Teriyaki Chicken 

Favorite Sweet/Dessert: Chocolate Chip Hold the Cone

This fan-favorite treat took top dessert honors in 2022's Trader Joe's Customer Choice Awards, and we're not surprised to see it top the list again this year. With just enough ice cream, crunchy cone, and chocolate bottom, they're perfect for little hands or for parents looking to snag a sweet treat on the sly (they're gone in two bites). 


  • Danish Kringle (various) 
  • Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches
  • Chocolate Lava Cakes
