Trader Joe's Dried Baby Sweet Pineapple

I love these things.

I'm not sure if "baby sweet pineapple" is a different variety of pineapple than one usually sees, or just harvested early, but they sure are delicious. I think they're much better than the dried pineapple rings. They're far sweeter, they're a lot less sticky, and they didn't leave me picking big hunks of fibrous stuff from between my teeth.

There's no added sugar; all the sweetness comes naturally. In fact, the list of ingredients is one item long: pineapple.

A few of these make a perfect late-night snack for me when my sweet tooth is calling for attention but guilt prevents me from pulling out a bag of candy.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have here the newest addition to my Top Ten list.

Will I buy it again? 

Again and again and again.

Nope. Nuh-uh. Negatory. Hell to the nizzo.

They look like wizened baby squid. They are chewy but not in a good way. They are more sweet than pineappley.

Bob has a ginormous sweet tooth, which is all very well and good, but I do not. I will eat the occasional piece of dried pineapple in trail mix or whatnot. But these? A drupe too far.

  1. These are one of my top three TJs items. They aren't always in stock so when I see them I grab several bags! I like that they're dried but not so chewy (like the dried pineapple rings or dried mango) that they aggravate my TMJ. Also appreciate that they don't have sulfur or added sugars.
