As far as we're concerned, Trader Joe's is the grocery store to end all grocery stores. Why? Unlike pricey Whole Foods and the lack of options available at pretty much every other grocery store, Trader Joe's has everything - and chances are, it's available at a price our wallets prefer. (Those 19 cent bananas though!)

While a trip to Trader Joe's can be a bit overwhelming, we picked 14 do-or-die cult favorite products that everyone should try at least once to make your shopping trip just a bit easier.

Mac and Cheese Bites

We never met a combination of fried carbs and cheese that we didn't like. These crispy frozen mac and cheese bites are ready in 10 minutes and make for the perfect party app. (Or eat them all yourself, we're not judging.)

Speculoos Cookie Butter

Those addictive airplane cookies you're sometimes lucky enough to get passed by a flight attendant during an otherwise torturous travel experience? Trader Joe's somehow managed to make them into a spreadable butter, and it's as amazing as it sounds.

Gone Bananas

Frozen chocolate-covered bananas are the guilt-free way to treat yourself to a little dessert - we just wish we would have thought of it first!

Reduced Guilt Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip

Really, we could probably eat an entire tub of spinach and artichoke dip - and TJ's version with Greek yogurt allows us to feel slightly less guilty about it.

Chile Lime Chicken Burgers

We're all for treating ourselves to a burger every now and then, but all those Shake Shack visits can add up, considering they're not exactly the healthiest option. TJ's Chile Lime Chicken Burgers are a lifesaver for when those burger cravings strike.

Mochi Ice Cream

If you've never tried mochi ice cream, the best way to describe it is seriously delicious bite-sized balls of ice cream. Keep an eye out for the pumpkin flavor in the fall!

Greek Spanakopita

Despite its challenging-to-pronounce name, Spanakopita is one of those things that we always seem to crave but wouldn't even dream of trying to make ourselves. Enter: Trader Joe's frozen version.

Spinach Tortellini

For some reason, (and it's not like we're complaining!) the pasta at Trader Joe's is insanely cheap, and you can score this ready-in-three-seconds spinach tortellini for $1.99. Seriously.

Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

If you've ever tried to DIY your own cold brew, you know what a pain it is - and a 32 oz bottle of caffinated deliciousness for $7.99 is way cheaper than heading to your favorite coffee shop every day.

Chicken Tikka Samosas

As far as Indian food goes, Trader Joe's offers a happy medium between expensive takeout and attempting to make your own. Pair these Chicken Tikka Samosas with their Garlic Naan and Chicken Tikka Masala and you'll have an Indian feast that will set you back WAY less than ordering in.

Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros

A bag of bite-size cinnamon sugar-covered treats that can be ready to go in 5 minutes - need we say more?

Dark Chocolate Mint Stars

These addictive chocolate-covered mint shortbread cookies are available around the holiday season - and though you'll probably have to put up a fight in order to snag a box, we promise it'll be worth it.

Goddess Dressing

A creamy vegan dressing? Yes, it's totally possible.

Triple Ginger Snaps

As far as grocery store cookies go, the Triple Ginger Snaps are considered by many a Trader Joe's shopper to be some of the best.
