This week, we're reviewing our first pumpkin treat of the season, Trader Joe's Pumpkin Biscotti.
An 8-ounce carton of biscotti costs $3.99.
A mom's (my) take: Here's what I love about these: they're actually made with pumpkin puree...they're mini-size...they have just the right amount of crunch and spices. The very first thing I noticed was the gorgeous scent of fall as soon as I opened the carton. I immediately had visions of sweaters, boots, kicking through fallen leaves...even if it is in the 90s today. These biscotti are delicious on their own and would be perfection with a cappuccino.
4.5 out of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These are an awesome way to kick off the fall season. I can't really smell much because of allergies, but I'm sure they smell wonderful. The feel of it is just right; not rock-hard, but not too soft to where it crumbles everywhere. That last factor is a huge plus for biscotti. The taste is definitely very pumpkin-y, but sort of mediocre. There isn't any wow factor or special flavor that makes me want to give these a top-tier review, but nonetheless, they are very good!
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars
