  • Hey everyone it's Morgan Yates and today I'm back to an a Trader Joe's holiday mall

  • I did one of these back in the fall showing all of the pumpkin and fall items at Trader Joe's have gotten in and

  • Now it's finally Christmas time

  • My Trader Joe's was a little behind

  • Getting in all of the new festive peppermint things and everything like that based on you guys telling me when you're Trader Joe's got them

  • But it's fine because we finally have it

  • I'm not bitter so lots to show in this video if you're new and this is the first video you're seeing

  • I would love if you would subscribe. I know where that better lighting. It is raining right now

  • I'm gonna post videos every Saturday and I'm also doing vlogmas every single day over my blog channel

  • So if you want to see some daily vlogs, make sure you're checking those out. So we will just jump right in I have to

  • Overflowing bags some new items if I've messed up on any of these and something for some reason isn't new

  • I don't know I base all this off of

  • My Trader Joe's they put these like snowflake little things beside like the names of the items if it was like a winter thing

  • So I made the assumption. I don't know

  • I'm gonna go through a few frozen and refrigerated items first that we can get them back in the fridge

  • First of all, I picked up two frozen appetizers

  • I'm real excited about these because I love to host

  • Like little holiday gatherings and things like that

  • If you have seen vlogs than you guys probably know but one thing that I love to make

  • Kind of from I guess just like the bear ingredients are these bacon-wrapped goat cheese stuffed dates, and they are so good

  • So I haven't tried these yet. We're having a Christmas little gathering here tomorrow

  • So maybe I'll whip these out and we'll see because these are always the crowd favorite

  • So I'm almost nervous to it. Try these but if they end up being good

  • Then it'll save me a lot of time from having to like whip all of these up though

  • Yeah

  • I don't know if you guys have made these let me know and then right beside that I also saw this Trader Joe's pimento cheese

  • Puffs little pastry thing so filled with the cheese uncrewed bacon and caramelized onion

  • So I don't know a little bit more of a savory option. I'm, ashlyn anything cheese and bacon is gonna be pretty good

  • Yeah, maybe I'll let those up

  • I don't know normally when I post things I do like a big cheese

  • Spread like veggie boar cool little appetizers and like lots of desserts

  • but tomorrow I think I'm gonna cater this is the most dramatic thing about reception Kim Williams saying this I think I'm going to get

  • sushi from catch

  • My favorite restaurant in LA. I just think that would be that would make me so happy but I think a beautiful sushi just

  • I'm crazy

  • Okay, but we might make these tuned into Instagram stories and tomorrow's vlog mice to see what we do with that next up

  • I just got to frozen desserts first. I recently discovered in general these mini hold the cone little ice cream treats

  • They're just these mini ice cream cones originally

  • I just gotten like the regular coconut vanilla ice cream and then like the little chocolate part on top and there's tiny bit of chalk

  • On the bottom. It's amazing the best part

  • So so excited when I saw that they had these peppermint ones because not only is it peppermint ice cream

  • But it's a chocolate cone and I prefer chocolate all day long

  • Anyways, you get eight in a pack as you see yeah done some damage and it's another fun little treat

  • I usually eat one every other night. They're really good and then next initially

  • I thought this was just gonna be like, well, it says candy cane Joe Joe's ice cream from afar

  • I saw this and I thought no peppermint ice cream. I was like typical like whatever

  • I love that they spiced it up because Joe Joe's are basically they're Oreos if you're unfamiliar

  • And they already make like a peppermint or candy cane Joe Joe's this time of year that are so good

  • so this is gonna be like a

  • Minty cookies and cream type vibe I think and then the last item that goes in the refrigerator

  • Is this cocoa peppermint almond creamer? So dairy-free this actually thinks pretty flavorful

  • It's not too often that I make my own like straight-up coffee

  • Although I got some like winter cake hub type things and I'll show you in a second

  • So maybe this would be good in that typically at home

  • I'm making some kind of like latte situation and - fresco

  • So it'll just be like oat milk and then like the little pod of like the espresso shot

  • but this time of year is good -

  • Almost just like instead of sweetening out some stevia or something cuz then it's a little too sweet

  • I'll just pour in a little bit of this. It adds a nice like slightly chocolate peppermint flavor

  • I just think it's fun holiday item. I don't know. It's not life-changing life-changing

  • But if it's enough to keep you making your coffee at home versus buying it out as is the case with me

  • I'm trying to make myself feel excited about this. So there's been less money on coffee. Although here. We are. Yeah

  • Those are the cold things next up. I've been eyeing this

  • I'm thrilled about the existence of this boozy chocolate truffle package

  • There are four different kinds it shows they have them with gin whiskey rum and Prosecco

  • I always say it and I got card it like this things taped up

  • I got carded when I bought it and I was like why I think this also just look super fancy like this would be a

  • Great, like little gift to give someone you open it

  • It's a wrapped up all nice and fancy and oh and you get a lot

  • So there's nine of each kind and you better believe I'm gonna stay here and sample each of them right now. All right

  • Well, how do I know from which this one is London gin?

  • I want to spread it out

  • Maybe if you'd like Jen, that would be okay. All right next Prosecco

  • It's better for sure, but it's not life changing and I really like white chocolate though next this one has rum effectiveness

  • It's like my job right now is tasting chocolate on camera

  • I'm made up I slightly taste rum

  • Emotionals good, then lots of Muslims the whiskey one. No, it was about one

  • Mmm-hmm. Well, that was fun

  • Overall, I would still recommend getting that for like a fun little thing or even just like a gift for someone in front of similar

  • chocolate

  • No, this is the one item that I'm not confident if this is in their like winter collection if you will

  • But I love it. So I'm showing it because this could also be like a really cute gift Bank

  • It's called this chocolate passport and it's wrapped evoke you basically it's just a stack of chocolate bars from all of these countries

  • I think this is so creative

  • If you have anyone in your life who likes chocolate

  • It's just like a fun little sampling and it's in like a really nice box

  • So that's just like a cute little almost gift item

  • I guess next time I picked up a couple tees because I do every now and then like to drink a tea at night this

  • one

  • Perplexed me the most it's called candy cane green tea

  • however

  • I have had like mint green teas from Trader Joe's before they're like Moroccan mint green tea one so I can't imagine this taste all

  • That different but I like it's decaf so it'll be perfect for before bed then

  • Secondly, I got this winter wake up to you, which says a spicy black tea blend with cinnamon and ginger

  • So those are definitely like winter little spice flavors and says it has orange peels and licorice. I don't know but one clove

  • Yeah, so I can already like taste so this gun tastes like next to like cake or like Lord loaf

  • We have a chocolate loaf mix. This is their chocolate peppermint loaf and baked cake mix and then we have it this gingerbread cake mix

  • Says that it has crystallized ginger pieces in us. I think that'd be interesting

  • I think I would like that because I like ginger

  • So for this one, you just need the mix a large egg vegetable oil and water

  • and then for this one the

  • ingredients are

  • The mix 2 large eggs 1/3 of a cup of oil and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar if you have tried them

  • Let me know it always does I just realize this says that it makes great cookies - and there's a recipe on the side

  • Oh, that's the recipe for the cookies false alarm. So what's the recipe for the regular?

  • So if you're making this in like a loaf type thing, it's the mix egg water melted butter. That's what you need

  • Ok, so you can spice it up multi-purpose mix here maybe in vlogmas. I will make one of those at some point next

  • Why did I think these were peppermint anything pink? I just assumed peppermint, and I clearly don't read it. I thought these were peppermint

  • Marshmallows, but they're just mini marshmallows. So still be cute for hot chocolate next up a little like snacky dessert item

  • I picked up the peppermint pretzel slim. So it says they have a creamy coating and

  • Sprinkles. All right taste does

  • Break up not my favorite. But again, I'm not a big white chocolate girl, and that's what you're mostly tasting

  • Although you do taste the peppermint in there. It's more sweet than in too salty. It's fine

  • I just wouldn't reach for that over other things like those ice cream cones

  • Those are the best moving on I'm very intrigued by this. I've never seen anything like this

  • Maybe I've been living under a rock

  • But this is called the double chocolate hot cocoa

  • stirring spoon with

  • Marshmallows and what you do with this is you just put this spoon into and it says 8 ounce cup of hot milk

  • Or steamed milk steaming hot milk. That's what it says. And then you stir it until the chocolate melts

  • So this light creates your hot chocolate so this could even be cool

  • If you're like, you just want it like once you don't to buy a big pack of like in chocolate or anything like that

  • So I'm excited to try that next up you guys these are so good

  • I can crush these I can literally go through this whole thing in like one second. These are elevated Oreos

  • They're better than the original

  • I wish they had these year-round or these hat like candy cane pieces and every bite like in the filling is so good

  • I love these next you can imagine my shock when I returned home and it was going through a hold of this and discovered

  • The gluten free version was also in my bag

  • I'm sure I did not buy this because the other day I only I didn't like

  • Christmas I was looking for these JoJo's and they only had gluten-free once so I bought the glue and free ones not the same hate

  • To say like I can get on board with a lot of gluten-free stuff

  • I think a lot of stuff tastes exactly the same. I even prefer some gluten-free things sometimes, however,

  • This something about it like the cookie. It just did not do it for me

  • So I in no world would be buying a second box of these

  • So I've tried to like take inventory of everything here and I think what happened?

  • I mean you tell me how this happened, but I don't have

  • Something I thought I'm just picking up off the shelf which were these like gingerbread?

  • crackers that are so cute and yummy they have like a very like light layer of like

  • Icing on the back and then they're little mini gingerbread. I think those are really good again

  • I wouldn't like sit here and like

  • crush a ton of them at once, but they're fun little festive treat to have around they I

  • Assume these boxes were somehow beside each other

  • I know they were kind of far back on the Shelf and like laying down and I guess I didn't pay attention and I picked

  • Up. This will be returning that but next time I'm there and then lastly on the jojomo

  • Now you like feel sort of like a sugar crash coming after this

  • These are dark chocolate covered peppermint jojo's they're try lines. So people look like this they are thick. Oh

  • My god, it's like a thin mint but better Wow, oh my god

  • Mmm, alright. Well, yeah that gets a 10 out of 10 for me next

  • I picked up these gingerbread crisps that I thought could be fun but says these are good for complimenting cheese breads dips and toppings

  • I kind of thought these would be fun just unlike a cheese board to like toss in as an alternative like

  • Cracker option if you will they aren't quite large as you can tell then next up back in the fall

  • I tried they're a little like pumpkin spice coffee and thought it's pretty good

  • So I thought we would take a chance on their festively flavored coffee celebration coffee cup celebration. I don't know whatever

  • Oh, it's a variety. I

  • Was wondering why this box was huge. I'm seeing now that we have five varieties

  • So you get four of each of all of these flavors. Oh my goodness chocolate mint caramel wintery blend

  • That's a good one french vanilla and gingerbread. Oh, they're trying to buy coffee is vomit. This makes me so happy chocolate mint coffee</
