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 44 - Roasted Gorgonzola Flavored Oven Crisp Crackers
Keep reading, even if you hate gorgonzola.
I am not a cracker person. When I think of a snack or a nibble, crackers
don’t come to mind. But I am glad these
ended up at our house, because they are yummy!
These are some fine crackers
At first glance, there are many things that could go
wrong with these crackers. First off,
lots of people hate strong cheeses like gorgonzola. I personally am a gorgonzola fan, so that was
a plus for me. What worried me was that
they are “gorgonzola flavored”. I feared
that the quotation marks around “flavor” might mean some fakey sort of
flavoring. I also anticipated a powdery
goo that would stick to my fingers when I munched on these. And the last possible thing that could have
gone wrong (in my humble opinion) was “oven crisp” – as in – kinda sorta
healthy instead of just SNACKY.
Very reasonable price!
But nope, nope, and nope – these are good! The flavor is NOT strong. In fact, I would bet if you put some of these
in a little dish on the coffee table and hid the box, even your friends who “hate
gorgonzola” would like them! There is
not a powder that flakes off onto your fingers.
And they do not taste all bland and flavor-less like some “baked” snacks
Roasted Gorgonzola crackers for the win!
Price – $2.29 (a
good price for a lot of crackers)
