I buy groceries once a week from Trader Joe’s. I always buy one novelty item to try. Sometimes I am blown away, but I have also tasted some big flops. Here’s my take on my most recent buys…
Crunchy Green Beans: Garbage. A crowd pleaser for people who are kidding themselves.
Pacific Flounder stuffed with crab meat: Mushy texture, delicious flavor. A great freezer meal for nights when you don’t give a hoot.
Roasted Plantain Chips: Taste like salty cardboard, but I can’t get enough. Purchased weekly.
Pineapple Salsa: This seems counterintuitive, but you will put it on EVERYTHING.
Spicy Thai Style Pasta Salad: The peanut sauce gums up the inside of your mouth like a fresh coat of spackle. It’ll go straight from the bowl to the trash can.
Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup: Please, sir, I want some more. Do yourself a favor and buy some crusty bread to dunk into this deliciousness.
Ezekiel Bread: For when you’ve given up on life.
That’s all for now.
What do you love and hate from Trader Joe’s?
