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 129 - Tzatziki
My friend Heidi turned me on to this product. She said they get it a lot at Trader Joe’s. And if Heidi likes it, chances are I will
like it! And I do.
Tzatziki, if you have never had it before, is, as the lid
says, a “Creamy Garlic Cucumber Dip”. It
is a Greek sauce and when you eat it, if you close your eyes, you can imagine
you are on a small Greek Island enjoying the sea breeze!!!
Hard to spell, but easy to eat
We had it with our falafel (reviewed yesterday) and I also
had it with Pita Bite Crackers (reviewed on day 127).It is really tasty – adds some zip to what
you eat it with.The chunks of cucumber
are a nice size.It says it is “low fat”,
which would normally be a bit of a turn off for me, but it didn’t TASTE low
fat, ifyou know what I mean.It IS runny, which means it can get messy,
but licking it off your fingers is totally acceptable (at least at our house it
This is a good summer food.Enjoy it in warm weather and dream of Greece.
