Eliqs Conjured Up ‘Hocus Pocus’ Wines To Sip With Your Fellow Witches

Trader Joe’s Now Heroically Offers Canned Wine For $4


By Cooking Panda

Ah, Trader Joe’s. What would I do without you?

When I was younger, you couldn’t bribe me with enough candy and Lisa Frank folders to get me to willingly go to any store other than Costco, and that’s just because my sisters and I used to make a game out of who could score the most free samples in under an hour.

As an adult, however, I almost find myself wishing sometimes that rather than meeting my friends at a bar, just once somebody would suggest going to hang out at Trader Joe’s.

The supermarket is a bastion of affordable and high-quality food, and always stocks an assortment of random goodies that almost never fail to be supremely satisfying.

Latest on its list of magical offerings is its new line of canned wines, called, elegantly: Simpler Wines.

TJ’s is selling the cans in four-packs for a measly $4, and they come in two different flavors: Simples Wines White and Simpler Wines Rose.

Simpler Wines combine the convenience of a can with a delightfully quaffable, Italian vino frizzante (sparkling wine),” Trader Joe’s writes on its website. “In Simpler Wines White, notes of juicy honeydew and fresh cut herbs provide sweet sippability, complementing such savory pairings as fresh bread & olives or Parmigiano Reggiano. The elegant, mineral notes and red fruit flavors of Simpler Wines Rose are a natural fit for fresh pasta, seafood or sweets.”

What’s more, the aluminum cans make an effort to be economically friendly, and double as both a container and a cup. They’re also lightweight, which means you can truly just tuck a can into your bag and drink one on the go if you, like me, often find yourself in situations where a little pick-me-up in the form of wine wouldn’t go unappreciated.

Are you excited about the new four-packs? I can see myself making this my new summer drink staple.

Drink Rose All Day Out Of A 40-Ounce Bottle (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

Sometimes, one glass just isn’t enough.

The weather is warming up ya’ll, and you know what that means — the “rose all day” crew is about to reemerge from their winter slumbers and start celebrating with a glass of pink wine.

Of course, for some people, a standard-sized bottle is enough, but rose fans are getting intense.

Now, you can buy 40-ounce bottles of rose, just like you can most cheap beers right in the refrigerated section of your bodega.


As Delish points out, you’re actually spending some money if you drop cash on a 40 of rose, considering typically a traditional bottle runs anywhere between $15 to $20. The magic of the 40, however, is that at least one store in New York is pricing them at $16, which means you’re getting almost double the wine for the exact same price.

Plus, rolling up to a party with a 40 of rose is definitely a conversation starter. Sort of gimmicky, sure, but also pretty rad!

For now, you can get your hands on a 40 of rose in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado and California, but there are only 1,200 cases that have been produced thus far, which means if you want in on the action, you better head over to a store with the big bottles in stock ASAP.

“They probably won’t last long,” creator Patrick Cappiello told Delish.
