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 25 - Hot Pico de Gallo Salsa
This stuff is like vegetable crack. Once I open a tub of it, consider it
g-o-n-e. I mean, sure, it SAYS a “serving”
is 2 tablespoons, but that is an outright lie.
I have eaten a whole tub (with blue chips) in one sitting. I am not proud
of that fact, but I must put it out there to warn you. Once you start, you cannot stop eating this salsa.
Find it near the cheese, hummus, pizza dough section
First off, the veggies in it are fresh. And cut to just the right size. I usually eat it by dipping in a Trader Joe’s
blue chip, and the size of the veggie chunks are just right to jump up and sit
on a chip. But you need to know – when
the label says “hot”, it ain’t a kiddin’!
This stuff is hot, which is just the way I like it (and also means I get
to eat the whole tub myself because it is too spicy for my partner - yes!!). You will find tomatoes, green peppers, onion,
cilantro… Is your mouth watering yet
because mine is…
2 tablespoons? You must be freakin' kidding me
Because it is fresh, the expiration date will come
quickly after you open it (which is not normally a problem for me, given my
propensity to suck it all down in one sitting).
If I didn’t always eat it all up with chips I am sure it would be
delicious on a taco or enchilada.
This also comes in “mild” or “medium”, but that is only
for wimps. Go big or go home! Find it in the refrigerated section near the
