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 137 - Concord Grape Juice
“Man, that’s good!”
These are the sounds/words I hear as I sit across the table from David
eating breakfast. He adores this Concord
We do not normally get our juice from Trader Joe’s, but we needed to
stock up on non-perishable products to review while we are in a town with no
Trader Joe’s (sad, I know, NO TRADER JOE’S!!).Anyway, one thing we chose to bring is this grape juice, and we are glad
It comes in a small bottle (1 quart) and it is not cheap ($3.99), but
boy is it yummy.It is “certified
organic, pasteurized, and made from fresh pressed organic Concord grapes” (all
from the label) but what we care about is “IS IT DELICIOUS?” and the answer is “YES
Not cheap, but grape juice never is really
The only downside to this product is that every time we have poured a
glass, it somehow dribbles down the side of the bottle and gets onto the bottom
of it.That means when you put the
bottle down on the counter or in the fridge, you get a ring of very hard to
remove purple grape juice as a stain.Something
is not quite right with the design of the bottle.I recommend always WIPING the bottom of the bottle
after you pour so you do not have to do a clean up later.
Were it not for the messy grape juice rings, this would get a 5 star
rating. Alas, like Carrie Ann Inaba on
Dancing with the Stars always dinging couples for doing lifts in their dances, I
must ding this product a tiny bit due to the malfunctioning bottle.
