New Options at Trader Joe’s

Every season, Trader Joe’s tends to update some of their food options, and there are a few new comfort food options that are available, some of them being vegan-friendly. Here are some to consider:

Chickpea Snacks

If you’re looking for a healthy snack alternative to regular old potato chips, you might want to consider ones that are made from peas and chickpeas. The Crisp Crunchy Crisps from Trader Joe’s are the latest pea and chickpea snack that is both vegan and gluten-free. They are curved, which makes them the perfect scoopable chip.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Wafer Cookies

Chocolate and peanut butter are a perfect combo and what makes them even better is having these two flavors packed into a wafer cookie. The chocolate-covered cookie has a peanut butter filling that people are raving about. The wafer texture resembles thin crinkle paper, and the peanut butter is smooth and gooey.

Vegan Pasta Bolognese

Pasta bolognese sounds like a dream. The vegan option from Trader Joe’s is made with a meatless plant-based bolognese sauce. The pasta is made from mushrooms and red lentils. You won’t be able to tell the difference between the real thing, and all you’ll be thinking about is how delicious the pasta is.

Pesto Pizza with Deep Fried Crust

The key to this pizza is the deep-fried pizza crust. It’s puffy, delicious, and has a Naples-style crust. The rest of the pizza is just as spectacular. It has chase and pine nut pesto, gooey mozzarella and 4-cheese blend, and the perfect amount of roasted garlic.

A TikTok Video Is Brilliantly Capturing Parenting In Every Decade

A dad has gone viral on TikTok by showing the differences between parenting during every decade since the ’50s. The dad’s name is Kevin Laferriere, and he is one half of The Dumb Dads duo. Recently, he has shared a video highlighting the different ways dads did parenting in each decade. It cleverly shows how the dad’s role has shifted.

Kevin Laferriere Shows On TikTok How the Role of the Dad Has Shifted Over the Decades

Kevin Laferriere The video starts in the ’50s with a black and white filter. The dad asks to help his kids with their homework while holding a drink, explains how he makes over four thousand a year, and has a hard time recognizing the kid from all the others he has. Next is dad parenting in the ’80s. Here, the filter changes to remind the viewers of VHS and an old camcorder. The dad is watching sports on the TV while holding a drink in a comfortable holder. The picture on the TV isn’t clear, and he yells to his son to go on the roof and move the antenna.

The video then jumps to the ’90s and shows the more relaxed way parenting was done back then. The dad rushes into the house and tells the kids there are leftovers in the fridge for food as he leaves for someplace. He adds that he’ll see them tomorrow and runs right back out the door, reminding his kids to do their homework.

Parenting Today Looks a Lot Different On Laferriere’s TikTok Video

The Dumb Dads duo during their podcast The final clip on the viral TikTok video is about parenting today. It shows a dad sitting in the house and talking to his kids about consequences and punishment. The dad explains how he would give his kids a consequence instead of a punishment and remarks that he doesn’t know the difference between the two. He clarifies that it is supposed to teach them something, but he doesn’t know what. In the end, the dad asks the kids to pick up their toys.

The video resonated well with the fans who follow the two funny dads. It now has well over 130,000 views on Tik Tok and hundreds of comments of other parents talking about how parenting is now very different than it was for their parents.
