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 274 - Peanut Butter and Jelly with Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Look, I thought this product sounded disgusting. I wasn’t gonna try it. I like yogurt. I like peanut butter. (OK, I dislike jelly…) But the thought of those flavors TOGETHER
sounds inedible to me!
You have to admit this sounds gross...
I don’t want to purposely buy anything to eat and review
during this year long blog that I know I will hate. That’s not fair. And I only have 365 reviews in total to do,
ya know. So this was one new Trader Joe’s
item I was prepared to leave on the shelf.
Until one of my Facebook friends, Peter Marino said something
like THIS WAS HIS NEWEST FAVORITE FOOD EVER.
I had to ask if he was being sarcastic or serious (cuz with him it is
hard to tell sometimes). He said he was
being HONEST, that he adores this stuff.
Not a bad price, but is it a BAD TASTE???
If LANCE likes it, I wanna try it!
Lance is Peter’s character in his solo show “Late with Lance”. We saw it this summer at the Orlando Fringe
Festival and it was great. Cracked. Us. Up.
You should really check out his site and
watch the preview clip here: Lance Show Preview So if
Lance is in, I am in baby! Throw some of
that crap, errr, yogurt in my cart!
When I opened the container I was really surprised. It didn’t look at all like I expected. Because the name is PEANUT BUTTER and JELLY WITH
Greek Yogurt I thought it would be actual real live swirls or chunks of peanut
butter and jelly in or on top of the yogurt.
Nope. It is just a mixed up
yogurt that smells like peanut butter.
Does this look appetizing to you?
When I TASTED it I was disgusted. Bleck-a-rama!
Lance HOW can that be your favorite food??? Yogurt is good, but this stuff…. Ewwwwww.
The flavors do NOT go together. I
disliked it so much that I realized I needed to do the FIRST EVER Trader Joe’s
365 VIDEO REVIEW and record David tasting it the first time. Honestly, I thought he would despise it and
maybe even spit it out all over the table (which I would find hilarious). So I grabbed the camera and forced him to eat
some. Here is how it went:
WHAT THE HELL? HE
LIKES IT???? David!!!! You are on LANCE’S side here???
This is one freaky, gross product. I can only imagine 7 year old boys liking
it. Well, 7 year old boys and Lance and
David gave it a 3.75, I give it a 2.5. It is not for me – so Lance and David have at
Price – .99
Rating – 3 (average of David’s
way over the top rating and my very generous rating, If Lance rated it it would
probably have a 5….)
