When I saw Trader Joe's Super Lemony Lemon Bites this week, they just seemed to fit the weather. Trader Joe's describes them as "A Taste of Summer Any Time of the Year." You'll find these mini dessert squares in 12-ounce packages in the bakery section.
A mom's (my) take: Super lemony is right! These little babies pack a definite lemon punch. Cakey, tart, and sweet...the bars get their flavor from lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon oil. If you love tart lemon, you'll love these! If your tastes run more sweet than tart, look for TJ's Pink Lemonade Cupcakes. I appreciate the fact that the contain no preservatives or colorings. Nice work, TJs!
Overall rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These could have had a more accurate title... I definitely like the tasty, rich cake base that pervades the taste buds. They don't live up to the "super lemony" description, though. I could barely taste any! Overall, they're good, but not in line with what the box says...
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Trader Joe's Super Lemony Lemon Bites: Split decision.

Here's what else we're loving this week:
- I really, really, really hope you saw this cake. And made it.
- These chai spiced donuts from Heather Christo on PW Food & Friends...I can almost taste them!
- Maybe I'm jumping the gun on Spring being here, but I'm gaga over these bunny Oreos!
- Avocado toast with the most! Loving this rendition from Two Peas and Their Pod!
