Trader Joe’s Has Black Truffle Butter And It’s Cheaper Than Animal Crackers

Trader Joe's truffle butter


You don’t have to be a gourmet cook to appreciate the intense aroma of truffles. They’re earthy, kind of garlicky and they’ll remind you of oh-so-tasty mushrooms. The¬†appeal can be hard to explain, but once you’re hooked on the flavor of truffles, any dish will become infinitely better when truffle oil or truffle butter is involved.

Unfortunately, truffles are wildly expensive. Yet, Trader Joe’s sells a 3-ounce tub of Black Truffle Butter¬†made with Italian Urbani truffles for just $2.99. It’s smooth, creamy and perfectly priced.

For less than the cost of a tub of animal crackers, you can have a flavor-packed ingredient that you can spread on toast, add to a pasta sauce, rub onto your chicken, add to your rice, melt onto a burger and drizzle over your popcorn. It’s crazy how many things you can do with a tub of truffle butter, and Trader Joe’s comes in clutch here by making it an affordable and accessible ingredient for once.

The next time you’re looking to load up on staples at TJ’s, consider making truffle butter part of the routine. You can finally afford it and you’ll never regret it.
