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 136 - Dried Apricots
We got these as a “road trip snack” but have ended up eating them (and
sharing with other artists) as a “theatre festival snack”. They are nice!
Last minute addition to our shopping cart - dried apricots from Turkey
They are dried, but not “shriveled-up-no-liquid-left-dried” like some
dried fruit.I thought this was exciting
and unique, but when I shared one with a fellow artist he declared that no,
this was not unique, this was indeed how most (all??) dried apricots are, and
that these were, in his opinion, average.
Way to be a Debbie Downer!
I will follow my original opinion of this snack and not be swayed by a
dried apricot connoisseur. J
Not all shriveled up and dried
These are plump, moist, tasty apricots.The bag (1 lb) is plenty big to share with friends old and new.I have not tried cooking with them, just munching
them straight out of the bag.They make
me feel like I am eating a healthier pick-me-up than, say, a bag of Doritos
(which, let’s face it, happens sometimes…).
