Trader Joe's Lemonade Stand Lemonade Concentrate
I drink a lot of lemonade during the summer. Most of what I buy is frozen concentrate, since it's so much better than powdered stuff, and so much easier to carry home than the ready-made stuff. I have tried lots and lots of different brands, and I always end up going back to Minute Maid. I just like it better than its competitors, and especially better than most store brands, even though it costs a little more.
I'm going to have to make an exception in that generalization now. I'm trying this one from Trader Joe's for the first time, and I'm liking it. It's a little more tart than Minute Maid, but pleasantly so. It's not overly sweetened. It's really quite good.
I didn't make note of the price, but I'd bet that it's either comparable or less than Minute Maid.
Will I buy it again?
I will definitely buy it at least once more to see if it seems consistent over time, and to note the price for comparison with Minute Maid. If I like the second batch as much as the first, and the prices are competitive, this may well become my preferred brand of frozen lemonade concentrate. At the very least, it's a close second.
