TJ Faves: Fruit Leather July 25, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Around Town, Food, Shopping.
Since I have begun making homemade granola, I typically buy all of my ingredients at Trader Joe’s (TJ’s). They offer a great assortment of dried fruits and nuts at ridiculously cheap prices. Even more convenient, there’s a store in the bottom of my office building and within walking distance of my house. Anytime I go to TJ’s, it’s hard to resist browsing for things not needed. They are always stocking their shelves with new items and they have an awesome circular called the Fearless Flyer which makes those new items seem less resistable.
Recently, I picked up some of their fruit leather. It’s the all natural, good-for-you version of the Fruit Roll-up. There are about 14+ ingredients in a Fruit Roll-Up vs. the 2 or 3 ingredients in a stick of TJ’s fruit leather. I’ve only tried the passion fruit and pineapple, but that first impression and $0.45 price tag has left me wanting to try more!
