Trader Joe's Organic Concord Grape Juice



I passed this by many, many times in favor of juices that sounded more interesting. It's grape juice, yeah, I get it. BORING!

I was alerted to the wrongness of this decision by a post by STG at the "Trader Joe's 365" blog. And she's right--this is one of the hidden, under-heralded juice finds at TJ's.

The list of ingredients is exactly one item long: Organic Concord grapes. It has been our experience that when TJ's juices have a single ingredient, they are usually near perfection in how juices should be. This continues that trend. It's intense and sweet, without ever tasting like it's been adulterated with added sweeteners or other dreck.

STG was right about the dribbling down the side of the bottle, though. That's annoying and kind of baffling, but a trivial flaw in an otherwise superb product.


Will I buy it again? 

Eagerly.


Nina's View

Sip 1: OMG CONCORD GRAPE BLAST IN MY MOUTH.

This juice tastes exactly like concord grapes, which should come as no surprise and yet it does. I ate those grapes as a child and this juice is the pure essence of that. Nice.

Sip 2: Yep, that's some grape juice, alright.

The thrill is already starting to fade.

Sip 3 and henceforth:

Grape juice, meh. It's okay, but for me it gets old pretty quickly.

  1. Well, with such a strong endorsement from you and susan's blog (which i miss!) looks like it may be time to give (non fermented ;) grape juice a try again for the first time since elementary school....
