I thought I had some uniquely keen powers of observation, but I can’t take credit for being the first to discover an uncanny similarity between the Trader Joe’s Pesto Tortellini bowl and the Amy’s Organic meal with the same name.
Same thing goes with the Trader Joe’s Frozen Spinach Pizza, and the Amy’s Spinach Pizza.
We know that Trader Joe’s partners with food makers to white label things. But I especially like knowing that I’m getting essentially the same quality food as something sold in Whole Foods, for a few dollars less.
Here in San Francisco, Trader Joe’s Frozen Pesto Tortellini sells for $2.99. Amy’s Organic Pesto Bowl sells for $4.99. Now that’s cheap(er) eats.
