Trader Joe's Product Review No. 1

Since I'm a newbie to the world of Trader Joe's I thought I'd do a review of all of the products I try out for those of you who are as lost as I am when I walk into that store. Unfortunately, my first visit to Trader Joe's was a little underwhelming. They didn't foresee how popular the Salt Lake store would actually be and they were out of almost everything. I also wasn't a fan of what we picked, but that didn't stop me from going back. I love food too much!

1. Spiced Cider: *
While this sounded good, it was a little too "spiced" for me. We only drank about 2 glasses of it and tossed the rest out.

2. Cilantro and Jalapeno Hummus: *****
So good! The dollop of cilantro and jalapeno in the middle adds just the right amount of heat for me. This is my husband's favorite and that's saying a lot because he doesn't really care for hummus. It keeps us going back for more!

3. Salted Tortilla Chips: ***
These get 3 out of 5 stars because they were only $3 for a gigantic bag! It was kind of like eating rocks though, but we got used to it I guess because we ate the whole bag. Haha.

4. Chocolate with Vanilla Bean Cream Joe-Joe's: **
I might get in trouble for saying this, but these are meh. Oreos rule the world of cookies and always will, I say! We were able to sample the peppermint Joe-Joe's however and those are much butter.

I promise my next review will be much more positive! Ha.
