Trader Joe's Report: Granny Smith Apple Slices
I generally rave about all things Trader Joe's -- witness this post (or this one). But the grocery store isn't immune to occasionally stocking some duds as well.
That's the case with TJ's new Granny Smith Apple Slice. The bag promises toasted, lightly salted apple slices. But what you get are chewy, barely baked dried apple pieces that rarely crunch (the salt isn't noticeable). The chips get stuck in your teeth; overall, it was a pretty disappointing buy. They can't all be winners, I suppose, but in this case I was expecting something completely different.
