Some foods just put me in a festive, wintery mood: chocolate, peppermint, anything ginger. Here in Los Angeles, however, we’re missing out on the cold/rainy/snowy weather, and this poses a problem, but not for long. Here are some food options under $5 from Trader Joe’s that will overcome the bright sunshine and bring winter to Los Angeles.
First of all: these ginger snaps. They’re amazing. They embody festiveness. Plus you get so many; they’re only $3.99!
The best part of winter is by far all of the amazing drink options, and I would highly recommend the spiced chai from Trader Joe’s.
These little gingerbread men are perfect for the holidays, and taste fantastic. For $2.99? So worth it.
If you’ve never had a chocolate orange, you are missing out. Once you take it out of the box, it’ll be wrapped in foil. Stand on a hard floor and drop the orange onto the floor while it’s still wrapped. When you unwrap it, it will fall open into chocolate orange slices. Proceed to eat the entire thing.
Last, but not least, these candy cane Joe-Joe’s (read: candy cane Oreos) are so tasty. You can’t turn down anything with candy canes during the holidays.
