The ancient Greeks believed that if a man tossed an apple to a woman, he was proposing marriage. If she caught it, she accepted. In these modern times, we've updated primitive traditions. Today, you can toss a box of Trader Joe's Apple Blossoms®.
Apple Blossoms® are individual pastries filled with sweet, cooked apples and topped with a tasty bit of cinnamon crumble. They're like little apple pies, with the crust folded over to look like a blossom. They're made with a variety of apples called Northern Spy, which have the firm texture of a Granny Smith, and the sweetness of a Macintosh. If you've been thinking about popping the question to that special someone, you might try tossing a box of Blossoms - they'll cost you a lot less than a ring, and they taste better, too! It's a great way to determine whether or not your "special someone" has taste as great as yours.
We're selling each eight ounce box of two Apple Blossoms® for $2.29. You'll find them in our freezers.
