Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 18 - Avocados
Sure, sometimes you might be able to find avocados on
sale at Safeway or Shoppers Food Warehouse for a little cheaper, but Trader Joe’s
avocados are reasonably priced ($1.39 each).
Avocados are such a tasty, healthy thing to eat. It’s good to have one in your fruit
Yummy - a tasty avocado!
We like to put thin avocado slices
on sandwiches, avocado chunks on lettuce salads, or make avocado/caper/red
onion/tomato chunk salads! You need to
think ahead when we buy them – you must strategize about when you will use it
and choose one that is going to ripen at juuuuust the right time (which is
tough to do!). I confess that we sometimes
forget we have an avocado and don’t find it until it is far too late and it has
turned to black mush, bleck. Of course,
if it is just a tiny bit too late, there is always fresh guacamole to be made!
Bottom line – avocados are yummy and healthy. Buy ‘em.
And since you are at Trader Joe’s anyway, might as well pick one up
there! They are just as good as avocados
purchased at other stores.
P.S. – Secret – we grew an avocado plant from a
SEED! We have been working on it since Spring
of 2014 and in January 2015 the tree got planted in real, live Florida soil
(instead of a pot!). Soon we hope to
harvest our OWN avocados!!
