Wild Blueberry Pie from Trader Joe

Trader Joe's Wild Blueberry Pie

Blueberry pie is a classic American picnic treat. We will be looking at it now that the Fourth of July is almost upon us. It might not be as American-sounding as you think. apple pieIt’s delicious, but it’s made from Maine blueberries. If you serve it on a traditional tablecloth, such as the one shown in the photo, you can have an authentic slice Americana with blueberry, white, and red pie.

It was very disappointing to taste and texture the crust. It is a poor imitation of homemade and lacks originality. I would not call it “authentic”.StaleIt’s too stiff to feel even close to “fresh.” It is also bland.

The blueberries were even more interesting. The flavor of this pie was saved by hundreds of perfectly sized blueberries in a semi-sweet, sweet sauce. The pie was firm when it was fresh from the fridge. It left me feeling as though I was eating something that was not up to the high standards that TJ sets.

Sonia microwaved her second slice for twenty seconds. She claimed that it significantly improved the pastry. I followed suit, and wouldn’t you know it—the pie took a giant leap in the direction of delicious. The crust could not be completely redeemed, but it was made up by the blueberry-infused smoothness.

Perhaps if this pie was baked at an outdoor picnic, then the 100-degree temperatures would produce the same effect as 20 seconds in the microwave. It can be served warm or cold, but it is far from freshly baked. We’ll be merciful when we score our scores, even though it’s already made and is on the shelf for $5.

Sonia and my thoughts on this one are exactly the same. Three stars each. It’s not bad.

Final verdict: 6 out 10
