Ask several people what their favorite Trader Joe’s product is and you’ll probably get a different answer each time. But despite the thousands of products available at the grocer, there actually is one that stands out above the rest!

Using a compilation of Google search data on the most purchased and searched for products, customer service company Workwise found that the most popular Trader Joe’s item is its Sweet Chili Sauce. Made with a delicious combo of chilis and garlic, once you try this sweet dipping sauce—especially with some of the retailer’s frozen foods—you’ll never go back.

We’ve heard the condiment pairs well with Asian-inspired foods like egg rolls, veggie spring rolls, in stir fry dishes and even over eggs! The sauce has its own cult following. Bonus? You can find it year-round in the TJ’s condiment aisle.

The Sweet Chili Sauce was the top product in 13 states including Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Virginia.  Coming in right behind the condiment in popularity was Trader Joe’s Macaron Variés in 10 states and Everything But The Bagel Seasoning in nine states.
