Trader Joe's has tried a slew of these refrigerated soup-in-a-tub varieties. They have mostly been failures, with one standout good one.
This minestrone can now join that as the second good one. It tastes reasonably fresh, and has a nice variety of flavors and textures mingled together, with no off-notes that I detected. It's a million times better than TJ's previous minestrone in a can.
