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 37 - Spring Mix Salad
I am a firm believer in making your OWN salad. That is, buying a couple of different whole
heads of nice lettuce and mixing up the perfect blend. That being said, there are times when that just
seems like a bit too much work, or too time consuming. And it is at those times that I am thankful
for bagged lettuce blends.
This blend, Spring Mix, has a nice variety: baby lettuces (it seems like that should be “baby
lettuce” but Google tells me lettuces has become accepted), greens, and
radicchio. The mix provides enough
taste, crunch, and color for me.
Spring Mix Salad
What is does NOT provide is enough VALUE. Ouch – at $1.99 for a tiny 5 ounce bag I feel
like I am getting royally ripped off.
All in all, for taste this product would get a rating of
4. But because it seems way overpriced
and you can find a bigger mix of the same lettuce at a competing grocery store
for less on sale, the rating has to go down.
I buy it in a pinch but try to avoid it.
