February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Neither pine nor apple, pineapples were thusly named because Spanish explorers thought the fruit resembled pinecones. Okay, we're good with that. But lo, imagine the possibilities if they'd bothered to taste the fruit before giving it a name! Apparently, though, its strange name hasn't hurt the pineapple's popularity. In the U.S. alone, the average person eats more than five pounds of pineapples annually. And that means each 16 ounce resealable tub of Trader Joe's Fresh Cut Pineapple Spears brings you 20% closer to reaching that milestone - and it's only February!
Our Pineapple Spears are super sweet, great as a snack with no adornment, straight from the fridge. Or you could embrace a bit of adventure and toss them with Balsamic Vinegar and a bit of Organic Coconut Sugar - trust us. Or slide them onto your grill, heat for a few minutes and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for surprising dessert treat. No matter how you use them, they're sweet tasting and a sweet deal at $3.49 for each 16 ounce tub. You'll find them in our refrigerated produce section.
