Trader Joe’s Secco Bellinis are absolute summer must-haves

Bonds

If you’re as addicted to Trader Joe’s as we are (how can you not be?!), this just might be the best news you’ll hear all day. Everyone’s favorite grocer is giving us a sip of summer with sweet secco Bellinis. Now, these aren’t necessarily new—in fact, the peach one has been around since 2017—but the price tag on these puppies never gets old.

Here’s how you can jumpstart the warm-weather season just by dropping by Trader Joe’s.

All the Flavor, Half the Price

It looks like a bunch of major retailers—we’re looking at you, Aldi—are hopping on the low-budget booze bandwagon, and we’re not complaining. If you need an easy beverage to wow your guests, this line from Trader Joe’s has your back. For the humble price of only $6, you can get a readymade Bellini in one of these mouthwatering flavors:

  • Grapefruit
  • Mango
  • Peach
  • Strawberry Raspberry

The prosecco-laced beverage comes from a family-owned German winery, and with 8% ABV, it’s sure to go along with a good time, whether it’s for brunch, over apps or with dessert. The back of the bottle doesn’t give a calorie count, so if you’re looking to indulge this summer while watching your figure, you may want to tread lightly. (Or try one of these skinny cocktails instead.)

So…why is Trader Joe’s so cheap?

Get Your Bottle STAT

Got a craving for these sweet secco Bellinis? Hit up Trader Joe’s ASAP (they’re sadly not available online). Rumor has it they’re even cheaper—around $5—in specific locations, though you’ll have to pop by TJ’s to find out if your store is one of them.

If there’s no Trader Joe’s in your neighborhood, make sure to stop at Aldi for these satisfying and budget-friendly hard seltzers.

Cold Brew Coconut Cream Lattes

These cold brew lattes—in original coffee and caramel spice flavors—will wake you up with a smile (especially our dairy-free and vegan friends!).

It’s darn good feta cheese, but made organic with cow’s milk (instead of traditional sheep’s milk). 

Ghost Chili BBQ Sauce

Ghost peppers are HOT! But combined with sweet BBQ sauce, it’s more than doable. 

Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Covered Mini Pretzels

While it’s true Trader Joe’s has had chocolate covered pretzels in the past, these are an upgrade from a new supplier with a new recipe. Think darker and better quality of chocolate.

Like Trader Joe’s iconic dark chocolate peanut butter cups, these are for those almond butter lovers.
