Trader Joe’s launches new vegan products
Trader Joe’s has been the king of snacks for years thanks to its exclusive private label offerings. And many of those snacks have long been vegan.
Trader Joe’s has a reputation for being relatively quick in and out of its products, but the grocer’s favorite has long been known for its dairy-free cheesecake, coconut milk-based vegan lunch dips, ultra-dairy and more. We deal in plant-based products. High protein vegan burger patties, 4 packs of sweet fluffy vegan vanilla cupcakes. These products may no longer be on grocery store shelves, but they’re being replaced by many new and exciting products.
