Trader Joe's Turkey, Spinach, and Swiss Cheese Wrap, Turkey Club Wrap, and Cubano Seasoned Wrap


Wraps are another TJ's food I only get when I travel. Not something I crave or think about buying on a regular basis. At all. But they cost $3.99 each, which is way cheaper than any airport food. We picked up three mayo-less wraps. Mayo wraps tend to go bad faster at room temperature (and an airplane is probably one of the last places where you want to come down with food poisoning). 




I'm not a fan of mustard, any kind of mustard, but I suppose dijon is the least harmful. 


Bacon. Is enough for me. Oh wait, it's not actually bacon. Boo. 


A's pick. Typical. 





Lengthy ingredient lists. Probably not the healthiest but probably not the worst. 

I don't have a picture of the turkey, spinach, and swiss wrap. It's exactly as it sounds, and it didn't taste remarkably good. At all. Definitely has a ton of turkey meat, but it's kind of dry and mildly tasteless. Plus, I already mentioned A and I could care less for mustard. Meh. No repurchase.

Next up: Turkey Club Wrap. This wrap made it to the Bahamas, and we ate it for lunch when day when we didn't want to spend money on an overpriced lunch. 


At first glance, it appears that there's WAY too much spinach but it turned out fine. Overall, the flavors in this wrap were a lot more balanced compared to the first wrap (which had two distinct flavors - swiss and mustard. Meh). The creamy tomato dressing was definitely the star of this wrap. It turned out a lot better and more flavorful than I expected and complemented the main ingredients nicely. Obviously, real bacon would have made this taste even better, but the turkey bacon provided sufficient salty flavor. Would repurchase before the next vacation! 

Last: the Cubano Seasoned Wrap. A's pick. Not surprising at all given the key ingredient- PORK. 


I hope y'all like mustard, because this wrap had an overwhelming amount of mustard, too much to be considered a Cubano sandwich. This sandwich had the best meat of the three wraps we tried. It actually had flavor and apart from the mustard it wasn't so bad. A even went as far to say it tasted like a drier version of John's Roast Pork. I certainly can't vouch for that. 

Overall, pretty on par with airport food but half the price. Compliment or no? 

TL;DR: Trader Joe's Turkey, Spinach, and Swiss Cheese Wrap. Plain jane with honey dijon mustard. Meh. 4 out of 10. 

TL;DR: Trader Joe's Turkey Club Wrap.  Creamy tomato dressing makes everything better. 6.5 out of 10. 

TL;DR: Cubano Seasoned Wrap. Seasoned pork with a whole lot of mustard. 5 out of 10.

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Crispy Crunchy Mochi Rice Nuggets

THE PACKAGING THO. HOW CAN I RESIST THAT. 

I immediately thought of School of Rock of course. What nuggets have to do with a band, I don't know. Is this another attempt at cultural appropriation? Perhaps not! Leave it to the Japanese to connect random things together usually in an ingenious way. Also, the singer says "Crispy" while the drummer says "Crunchy." THAT IS TOO CUTE. GAHHH I'm sold. 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
