From classics like Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups to less-expected picks such as Soy Chorizo, here are the products to look for next time you hit the aisles at Trader Joe's.

For those who are loyal Trader Joe’s shoppers, this is basically the supermarket’s version of the Emmy’s.

Every year the grocery store chain hosts a Customer Choice Award survey to see what its customers are loving — and the results are in. Now in its 8th year, some products have remained on top (Mandarin Orange Chicken) and some new products are taking flight (Pumpkin Butter!).

While most of the favorited products are available year-round, some are only available seasonally (items are noted with an asterisk), so stock up when the time is right.

The full list of winners can be found below.
