If you're on the hunt for something sweet and spicy, there's one jarred item you'll want to keep in mind the next time you visit TJ's: Hot & Sweet Jalapeños (40 calories per serving).

Recently, one fan took to Reddit to share their love for the pickled peppers. "Someone take the Hot & Sweet Jalapeños away from me," they wrote, adding, "I've been consuming 1-2 jars per week."

The Reddit thread soon filled with similar positive comments about the pickled jalapeños.

"I eat these every day! So good!" one shopper wrote.

"They go on everything in my house!!" another one commented.

Meanwhile, other shoppers got more specific and shared how they enjoy the popular jarred item.

"So good on a burger with goat cheese…" one fan shared.

"I use them to top deviled eggs," another one said.

While some TJ's shoppers like to add the peppers to burrito bowls, quesadillas, tuna salad, and sandwiches, others recommend repurposing the jar's sweet and spicy liquid by incorporating it into cocktails or using it to brine chicken before frying. And then there are the customers who enjoy the peppers in their simplest form: straight out of the jar.
