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 112 - Free Range Chicken Broth
Look, we didn’t buy this Free Range Chicken Broth because we
are fans of chicken broth and use it all the time in our cooking. We almost NEVER use chicken broth. Full disclosure, we bought it because my
partner David was going to have a colonoscopy and needed a day of prep where he
only consumed clear liquids. That being
said, we (especially HE, who adores eating) were not thrilled about this
purchase from the get go.
As you can see, David was not thrilled with this purchase.
But it was good.He used
it for his prep day - I just heated it up in the microwave in a mug and he
drank it.It was filling enough that he
felt like he was “eating” and didn’t complain too much.The good news (and the best part of this
review) is that all went well with the colonoscopy and he doesn’t have to get
another one for a decade.
Happy Day - good colonoscopy!
But there was some of the broth left in the fridge after the
prep day, so we have used it in cooking.Tonight I used it instead of water when I made Israeli couscous and it
worked very well.Another night he used
it to make a sauce to put over orecchetti and that was good, too.
So I guess the moral of this story is twofold:
1. GET A COLONOSCOPY (seriously, they are
cook with chicken broth more often at our house
See - it is free range
P.S. – something about “free range” chicken broth sounds
funny to me. It sounds SO
hippy-granola-hybrid-car-driving-PETA-animal-lover, doesn’t it?? I have heard of free range chicken and free
range eggs, but this was my first FREE RANGE BROTH.
