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 64 - Eggs
We are a household of TWO humans. We do not eat many eggs. Hence, sometimes our eggs “egg-spire” before
we get through them all (see what I did there??).
Enter Trader Joe’s eggs.
They have the expiration date stamped RIGHT ON THE EGG.
“What???” I hear you say.
But no! Think
about it, if a brand (ok I will say it, Eggland’s Best) can stamp it’s NAME on
each and every egg, why can’t someone stamp an EXPIRATION date on each
egg??? Trader Joe’s has gone and done
Check it out - DATES on each egg! So cool.
And before you can raise your hand and ask, “Why, if I may
ask, would one want eggs to have expiration dates stamped on them?? The date is on the carton – isn’t that good
enough??”. Oh no my naïve little friend,
it is not. J And you obviously didn’t watch the same “60
Minutes” (or some other such “news expose” show) where they showed (gasp!) egg
producers just plopping old expired eggs in new cartons… Ewwww.
Oh, but my partner David saw that show, and though he
will drink milk at least 5 days after it has technically expired, he remembers
that documentary and insists on Trader Joe’s date stamped eggs.
You can trust that these eggs are still good!
In my mind, eggs are eggs. But it does make you feel like you are not
getting egg-spired ones (I did it again!) when each fragile shell is dated.
Price – $1.99
Rating – 5 (if my man is
happy, I am happy. End of story.)
