The Best (and Worst) Products from Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe's almond croissantsNathan and Sonia Rodgers love Trader Joe’s, the quirky grocery chain now found in 31 states. (Who doesn’t?) But although they find lots of delicious values, there are also some certifiable duds.

So, they set out to rate each and every TJ’s item at What’s Good at Trader Joe’s? From “Almondidictive” snacks to Peanut Butter-Flaxseed spread to Spinach and Kale Greek Yogurt Dip, they bring you the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. For example:

Loser! Trader Joe’s Honey Glazed Miso Salmon on Greens “I suppose in this case it was a saving grace that there wasn’t very much salmon in the salad. What little salmon there was tasted like dirty socks—and yes, I know what dirty socks taste like.”

Winner! Trader Joe’s Frozen Almond Croissants “Let me tell you this right off the bat: a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Oh goodness. These might have been the best thing we ate all day, and that says a lot. Upon first bite, I was in love. The buttery, crispy outer shell gave way to soft, warm flaky, melt-in-your mouth innards that were so rich, sweet and almondy that it tasted almost creamy, if that makes any sense.”

Head over to What’s Good at Trader Joe’s before your next trip to the store, and you’ll be picking up all hits, no misses.
