Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Greek Yogurt

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Greek Yogurt

This pumpkin-tastic holiday season isn’t over. Sonia was excited to hear about the “delicious” new yogurt from TJ’s via Instagram. She quickly ran out to purchase some for her review. As people shared photos of the product, she heard rave reviews after rave review. It sounded strange to me, but I will give it a try. It is almost anything once.

Sonia’s facial expressions can be a bit enigmatic, and they are very hard to translate even after three years of marriage. This was evident in her reactions to the stuff. She stared blankly into space, then smacked her lips. The blankness gradually became a grimace. It was delicious! It was noticeably thinner than most Greek yogurts. This “Greek yogurt” had the consistency of normal yogurt, I thought. Sonia agreed. She also said that while most Greek yogurts can be made from greek yogurts, they are often not. low-fatThe fact that this Greek yogurt was non-fat might have contributed to its thinner-than-expected consistency. 

Although I don’t know what expressions I make when I try something, I can tell you that I smiled just like Sonia. It tasted a lot like aspartame. It doesn’t have aspartame listed on the ingredients list but it still tasted exactly like it. Sonia felt it was too bitter. We checked to see if it had not gone bad. It had one month to go before the expiration date. It was bland. It had a vague taste of sourness and nutmeg. 

We were disappointed by all the hype and expectation. Sonia especially.Maybe our taste buds have become numb to pumpkin from too many seasonal treats, but we didn’t like this Pumpkin Greek Yogurt. So once again, it was Pumpkin Butter to the rescue. We were able to finish our little tub quickly because of the sweetness of the pumpkin butter. These products are being reviewed for their own sake and not to be mixed with any other Trader Joe’s products. We thought the Greek yogurt was a complete failure. However, there are many other opinions. Please comment below and let us know what your opinion is. Thanks! Everyone, happy Thanksgiving! Awww, it’s terrible that I posted a negative review about Thanksgiving Day. Please forgive me.

1.5 out of 5 stars for Sonia. 2.5 stars for me.

Bottom line: 4/10
