Trader Joe's Tour

I had an amazing opportunity last week.  Julie, a Weight Watchers Leader arranged for a tour of the Trader Joe's store in Batavia.  I joined about 10 other Weight Watchers members to listen to Christine, a Trader Joe's Crew Member show us around the store and tell us all about the PointsPlus (PPV) bargains that were spread throughout the store.  In addition to telling us where we could find these gems they also provided us a list of these foods and their associated Points Plus values.  I thought of myself as pretty savvy when it comes to finding a good PPV value but some of these things were a surprise to me.  I thought I'd share the list with you guys because if you haven't found any/all of these items, please go in search of them if you have a Trader Joe's store near you.

A few of my favorite items from Trader Joe's:

  • Horseradish Hummus - you get a ton of flavor for only 1 PPV per serving
  • Champagne Pear Dressing - there is cheese in the dressing!  Need I say more?
  • Queso Cheese Dip - It is SOOO delicious
  • Chili Lime Chicken Burgers - they are HUGE and so flavorful!
  • Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins - they are only 2 PPV per thin!!

If you've found any other Points Plus bargains that I haven't included, please let me know so I can update the list.


  1. Awesome! I love TJs- I can't believe how long it took me [this year] to discover it. Obsessed with the prices and amazing options. I <3 their queso too :)

  2. Reduced guilt guacamole- I think it is 1 P+ for 2 Tbsp.

    1. Oooooo.... I haven't tried the Reduced Guilt Guac yet but I'm going to be sure to pick that up the next time I'm there! Thanks for the tip!!
