It’s a penny saver, but it can’t compete with the flavors of Chinese takeout. Admittedly, I used to love TJ’s copycat recipe but realized my taste buds are better off sourcing the real thing from local restaurants.
I was so disappointed with TJ’s When Life Gives You Lemons Make Ice Cream. I love lemon-flavored things (drinks, desserts, dressings, sauces), but this was way too sour for my liking.
Once you try Trader Joe’s traditional Mac ‘n Cheese, you can’t go back. In an attempt to “healthify” my diet, I briefly switched to TJ’s gluten-free version. Long story short, I stopped after one bite.
In the last two years or so, I’ve become a big cauliflower fan. So, when I came across TJ’s Cauliflower Gnocchi, I was immediately intrigued. Nope. It’s spongey, lacks flavor, and lowkey smells bad.
I think the Mini Chicken Tacos (also available with beef) have real potential, but only if TJ’s starts packing more of the shredded seasoned meat in. Right now, the ratio of taco to meat is way off.
How good does this sound?! I thought it would taste like summer in a bag, but sadly it was another flop for me. It’s super, super sour, and lacks key lime flavor. My teeth felt like they were coated in sugar after, too.
