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.

Return of the Pomegranate (Body Butter)
Look, I do not want to get
all political in this forum, that is not what this space is for. This is for TRADER JOE’S, for heaven’s sake,
not for politics. But I feel that I must
put it out there, at least acknowledge the fact, that I am not feeling up to
snapping funny photos of David and I chowing down on mini pies and the like
right now. It is a somber, confusing
time for me.
And yet – we all must
eat. And in our case, that means we must
make a trip to Trader Joe’s.
And lucky for me, it meant
that I found POMEGRANATE BODY BUTTER is back in stock. Yes, a holiday favorite has returned. If you follow this blog you might know that I
am not a huge fan (at all…) of TJ’s PUMPKIN Body Butter (bleck!), but the
Pomegranate is good!!
Here it is folks! It is back!
They have changed the
packaging this year- funked it up a bit and it looks nice.They did NOT
change the price tag – it is still the low, low price of $5.49.Sadly, they didn’t take my advice to change
the LID to the cool lid they give to the yucky Pumpkin scent, the one where you
can snap the lid up off instead of having to twist it off.Not having the advanced lid is the only
reason this product got a 4.75 instead of a 5 star rating last year!You would THINK they would want to up their
game, man!But if they are not changing
the lid, I am not changing the rating.

Anyway, you should for
sure grab yourself a tub during this holiday season.And actually, you might want to grab an extra tub to squirrel away for later,
cuz when the first tub runs out, you might miss it and they won’t have it
anymore.And if you have someone
on your holiday shopping list who likes lotion, this might be a good gift!Now don’t say I didn’t help you with your
And you know what? If you are reading this, and want to try this product but don't have a Trader Joe's in your area, check on E-Bay and other sites. If you can't find anyone selling it for at or near the REAL PRICE ($5.49) comment here and we can work together. You can send me money and I will get you some at TJ's and mail it to you (sorry, you will have to pay for shipping, but it will be better than getting ripped off by some online retailer!). Just consider it my early holiday gift to you.
