February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
There's a lot of talk about how TV is bad, that violent cartoons lead to violence, and that there are no role models on television. To that we say, Popeye anyone? Here's a guy who definitely had his faults, to be sure, but never before or since has a cartoon character so shamelessly promoted the benefits of going green. Green vegetables, that is. Spinach, to be more precise.
At Trader Joe's, we have Fresh Baby Spinach that definitely passes the Popeye test - and without the can, thankfully. It tastes great and is good for you any way you decide to enjoy it. In a salad with blue cheese and candied walnuts, in a hearty homemade soup, or sautéed with a touch of olive oil and garlic, our Baby Spinach will not disappoint. It's pre-washed and ready to eat, though we always recommend a rinse with cold water just to refresh the leaves a bit. Each resealable 12 ounce bag of Trader Joe's Fresh Baby Spinach is $1.99, every day, a great price for this undeniably healthy green treat.
