Trader Joe’s made a splash on the grocery scene back in the 1950s. The local grocery store started off as Pronto Market in Los Angeles. By the late 1960s, it was rebranded “Trader Joe’s” and now, a full 50 years later, it’s a nationwide phenomenon.
A big part of the grocery store’s success comes from branded food which is often a cut above but also costs less. Two-buck Chuck, edible frozen pizzas, and a deft understanding of the vegetarian market helped propel the grocery chain to nationwide success. The model has made such a splash that 80 percent of what Trader Joe’s currently sells is their own branded food.

10. Chile Lime Chicken Burgers
We love every word of that food. Chile, dope. Lime, always tangy. Chicken, sounds healthy. Burgers, hells yeah. You really can’t go wrong here. The pre-made burgers are great in a pinch when you’ve worked a 16-hour day and you need a dose of flavorful protein to recalibrate your body. It’s also a lot faster, cheaper, and easier than making these burger patties on your own (probably not healthier though).
