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 39 - Wicked Sticky Pecan Buns
These caught our eye because of the cool name. WICKED STICKY Pecan Buns! Cool, eh?
Of course we walked around the store saying, “Wicked Sticky” in our fake
Boston accents. We thought the adverb “wicked”
was modifying the adjective “sticky”. It
was not until the next morning when we ATE said buns that we realized WICKED
was modifying PECAN BUNS, and STICKY was superfluous!
Let me explain… We
asked a Trader Joe’s guy if he had eaten these before and if they were
good. He was sort of cagey in his answer
– hemming and hawing – and said he highly recommended heating them in the oven
as opposed to microwave as that would make them a little “melty” and “less
sugary sweet”. Oh my. I feared then that they were going to be
Wicked Sugary Buns.
Wicked Sticky Pecan Buns - 4 to a pack
We followed his advice – put each bun on a small plate,
covered them with foil, and heated them in the oven. When we went to eat them they were not “melty”
at all, but they were YUMMY!! Sweet, but
not too sweet, and oh so butttttery! The
pecans were nice, too. Really a tasty
A buck a bun!

The only thing missing was the STICKY! There was no sticky whatsoever! Just yummy!
Name change suggested – WICKED YUMMY PECAN ROLLS.
