Jul 19 2014 - 6:00am

Whether you're plopping down on the couch and need something to munch on or you're road-tripping, the moment calls for something sweet, salty, crunchy, or maybe even gummy. We consulted POPSUGAR editors to pull together the best snacks at Trader Joe's.

Baked Lentil Chips: Salt and Black Pepper ($2)

Pair the lentil chips with TJ's garlic hummus for the perfect little snack.

— Lisette Mejia, assistant tech editor

Dried Pitted Tart Montmorency Cherries ($5)

Most dried cherries on the market are sweet cherries, like bing. Not these; they pack tons of tart, juicy flavor. I like to add them to oatmeal cookies or a sweet snack mix of bittersweet chocolate chips and slivered almonds, or I eat them straight.

— Nicole Perry, assistant food editor

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups ($4)

So creamy and delicious. Hands down, 1,000 times better than Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

— Kelly Schwarze, associate tech editor

Powerberries Trek Mix ($5)

The Powerberries Trek Mix is my go-to snack. I never feel guilty munching on the mix of chewy dark-chocolate-coated fruit pieces and crunchy nuts.

— Emily Oyster, marketing assistant

Dark-Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Slims ($3)

These are salty, sweet, chocolaty, and perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. I have made myself stop buying them, because I eat them too fast.

— Aemilia Madden, editorial assistant

Mesquite Smoked Almonds

I was recently introduced to these smoky, addictive almonds at a party, and I immediately rushed out to grab a bag. Pro tip: this perfect snack tastes best straight out of the fridge so the seasoning doesn't get all over your fingers.

— Alyse Whitney, assistant celebrity editor

White Cheddar Popcorn ($2)

I grew up eating tons of white-cheddar popcorn, so popping open a bag paves the way to instant nostalgia. It's impossible not to scarf this umami-rich popcorn by the fistful.

— Anna Monette Roberts, assistant food editor

Wild Salmon Jerky ($6)

OK, this stuff isn't for the faint of heart, but if you're a fan of fish, you'll love the sweet-salmony chews. I will definitely be bringing these on my next camping trip.

— AMR

Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds ($4)

Roasted almonds drenched in dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt and turbinado sugar . . . Need I say more?!

— Zelana Montminy, health and wellness reporter

Chili Spiced Mango ($2)

These are pretty much on par with all of my favorite Mexican candies; you really can't beat the spicy-sweet combo.

— Michele Foley, fitness editor
