Trader Joe’s Product Reviews – Recipes

Oakland County Moms Trader Joe’s Product Reviews (and recipes)

Trader Joes’ products can often be healthier and more inexpensive alternatives to main chain counterpart products. Trader Joe’s also offers seasonal items and specialty foods that show up on the shelves periodically.

 

I’ve reviewed a lot of Trader Joe’s products since I started Oakland County Moms. Some of my Trader Joe’s product reviews are straight up comparisons to similar products and foods in terms of taste, cost and ingredients. Some reviews of Trader Joe’s products are just products I’ve tried for a recipe.

Trader Joe’s doesn’t pay me to review their products. Some of these products, I feel, are fantastic and some are hit and miss.
