Trader Joe's Seville Orange Marmalade
Every time I had some of this stuff, it seemed bitter. I couldn't figure out how you could take oranges, add sugar and thickeners, and end up with something bitter. Finally, as I sat down to write this review, I read the back of the jar: "Seville oranges, also known as bitter oranges, are the back-bone [sic] of a proper orange marmalade." So apparently it's intentional. I had never heard of Seville oranges before, so I didn't understand that the name meant I was signing up for bitterness.
Do not like.
Will I buy it again?
No. In fact, after having eaten about 1/3 of the jar, the rest is going back for a refund.
For those keeping track, I've now returned something like 20 items. I've purchased something like 700 different products from Trader Joe's, so my return rate is on the order of 3%.
