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 75 - Persian Cucumbers
I like a good cucumber in the summer time – slice it up,
add some sliced onion, soak it in vinegar and water… Tasty!
Or how about this – slice up a
cucumber and toss it in a big green salad – delicious! I had seen these smaller Persian cucumbers before
but had never bought them. Then recently
I was visiting a friend in St. Joseph, MO and her husband brought some home
from a local (non Trader Joe’s) grocery store.
He served them like a snack – a healthy appetizer as it were. Just rinse and EAT. No need for slicing. No need for pickling. No need for dipping or topping with something
– just eat!
Tasty, compact little crunch snacks!
The next time we were at Trader Joe’s I picked some up. They come in a pack of 6 for $2.49, which
equals 42 cents each. So for less than
you would plop down on a Snickers bar, you get a crunchy, tasty, HEALTHY snack! We liked them so much we threw a few in a
Ziploc bag in our carry-on for eating during a recent long flight! A cool thing about them is that, unlike salty
snacks, they don’t make you THIRSTY. In fact
they are quite juicy so help quench your thirst a bit! Also, unlike snacking on carrot sticks, they
are not boring!
Cheaper than a Snickers bar... Easy to transport, too!
I will keep some of these in our fridge for munching
