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 35 - Peach Raspberry Pie
We recently had an amaaazing store bought small pie from
a grocery store in Florida named Publix.
We adored it. And it is with that
positive memory that we bought this Peach Raspberry pie tonight at Trader
Joe’s. It is a great size – 14 oz. The flavor sounds like a delicious mix – the
sweetness of peach entangled with the tanginess of raspberries.
Oh you disappointing little pie, you. Your crust is way too thick and floury. Your fruit filling is bland and not at all
zippy. Your peach is peach COLOR but not
peach TASTING. And your
RASPBERRIES?? Are you sure those are
raspberries and not rhubarb?? Cuz they are dull, dull, dull… And your topping – did someone just spill a
box of granola on top of you?? You are
nothing like a homemade pie and you make us wish for summer and fresh peaches
to make our own dessert.
We won’t be buying you again. In fact, we will be returning this one with 2
tiny slices cut out of it. Thank
goodness for Trader Joe’s awesome return policy!
Over priced and under flavored.... (and incorrect - package says 14 oz)
