Trader Joe’s recently broadcast its 12th Annual Customer Choice Awards Winners via its podcast, episode 33. The awards featured many return favorites, such as Mandarin Orange Chicken and Unexpected Cheddar, as well as some new products Trader Joe’s shoppers line up to buy.
Each year, the Monrovia, Calif.-based retailer invites customers to pick their top products in a variety of categories, as well as their No. 1 product overall. Shoppers can communicate picks via email or Instagram. For a look at last year’s winners, click here.
Beauty and the Bath
The Customer Choice Award for Favorite Home, Bath and Beauty Product goes to Trader Joe’s Scented Candle. This item is available in a variety of scents, including Grapefruit and Cedar Balsam. While Trader Joe’s said its Cedar Balsam received the most votes, Honeycrisp Apple came in at No. 2.
Overall Favorite Product
For years, customers all-around favorite Trader Joe’s product was the Mandarin Orange Chicken, but last year its throne was usurped by Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. This year, however, the popular frozen chicken entree that Trader Joe’s calls “the sweet and savory sovereign of the freezer case” took back its title.
