There are some items that rarely leave your weekly grocery list. Produce, meat, cold cuts, you get the picture. A trip to the supermarket is often predictable. Well, unless you're shopping at Trader Joe's.

The cult-favorite grocery store breaks up the monotony of an otherwise routine shopping trip by regularly dropping new items, causing shoppers to stray from their usual list of groceries. And now that it's a new month, customers can expect to see plenty of exciting additions on the shelves.

However, as with any Trader Joe's item, it's unclear how long these products will be in stores, so you'll want to snag them while you can. From baked goods to savory snacks, here are the best new Trader Joe's items you can purchase in April.
