Trader Joe’s has really been stepping up their game recently. While many of us have always loved their affordable and easy, ready to eat meals, they’ve continued to impress with specialty items that consistently elevate the home dining experience.

One area that’s recently left us impressed is the seasoning aisle. While usually they were supply us with our typical salt and pepper shakers they now boast an offering that goes great on almost everything! We found that Trader Joe’s Seasonings are unique, stuff that you can’t find in simply any grocery store.

This gave us an idea. We wanted to try all of Trader Joe’s seasonings to see which works best on our favorite meals and snacks. Add a little something to your morning fried eggs for a burst of flavor.

See below our ranking of our favorite seasonings and if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, these seasonings are available on Amazon. They’ll ship right to your door in no time!

Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning

Add everything bagel seasonings to, well, everything!

This simple yet delicious blend of sesame seeds (white and black), poppy seeds, dried garlic & onion, and sea salt flakes is all you need for bringing that crunchy, roasted, savory flavor to anything.

Adding this to avocado toast immediately brings a heaven like taste that is uncanny to an everything bagel and schmear.

Chile Lime Seasoning

Spice up your favorite snack!

Fruta con chile y limon is a popular snack offered up by street vendors throughout Mexico. Wheeled carts mounted with glass boxes exhibit plastic cups, each one overflowing with either fresh-cut fruits and veggies.

But it’s not just fruit that they’re pushing. What makes this snack so special is the seasoning blend sprinkled on top. It’s a topping made with salt, chile powder, and lime juice powder.

Trader Joe’s really hit the nail on the head with their version of this classic snack. With just the right amount of salt and heat, this seasoning blend is a perfect topping that adds a little kick to your morning toast, or a fabulous addition to any meal.

21 Seasoning Solute

Trader Joe's Seasonings

Salute your taste buds!

The idea behind the 21 seasoning salute is to provide a powerfully flavorful blend that can be added to almost anything. Trader Joe’s hit the nail on the head here with a special secret…there’s no salt! To make a seasoning this flavorful without any salt is almost unheard of! But it works amazingly well.

We tried this seasoning on almost everything and it easily shined when topped on fresh avocados. Add this seasoning to some of these avocado recipes to unlock some wicked flavor.

You will go through this seasoning much faster than you expect, so don’t be shy about stocking up when you spot it in the seasoning aisle at Trader Joe’s.
