Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Review

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie

When the holidays come around, they bring with them a whole new set of food preparation responsibilities. Not only do you have to keep up with holiday shopping and social engagements, but you must also be prepared to spend a lot of time cooking and/or baking. If you’re anything like us, reading this paragraph probably stresses you out.

Thankfully, the Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie lets you scratch one thing off of your holiday to-do list. This premade pie costs about $6, and it will save you hours of baking time. It’s also a pretty impressive dessert that we think your holiday guests will really enjoy.

As we mentioned earlier, this pie is premade. You won’t find it in the freezer section — check the bakery section at your local Trader Joe’s — as it’s not frozen. That means there’s no cooking or even thawing involved in preparing this. Once you purchase this pie, all you need to do is open the box and slice it, then it’s ready to be served. There is a piece of thick tape holding the box shut, and we suggest using a small knife to cut through it.

Once that is done, you’ve got a fantastic, shareable pie for you and your house guests to share.

The crust here is not quite what we were expecting. It’s a bit crumbly, as a good pumpkin pie crust should be, but it’s not quite crumbly enough for our tastes. It also has a little bit of a doughy flavor to it, which we’re not super enthused about.

But that really doesn’t matter, as the vast majority of this pie is the pumpkin-based filling, which is absolutely incredible. Not only does it have the perfect level of sweetness to it, but there’s also a bit of cinnamon and ground ginger to spice it up a bit. These spices really bring out the flavor of the pumpkin, and they contrast with the sweetness in a way that is pure pumpkin perfection. A dollop of whipped cream is a great topper for this pie, but it really doesn’t need it, as it’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth without any additional toppings.

Of course, this isn’t a lightweight meal. If you cut your pie into sixths, each slice will contain 420 calories. You’ll really have to hold back the urge to go up for a second slice!

The Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie is loaded with flavor, but it’s not a dessert for dieters. If you’re planning on tossing aside healthy eating for the holiday season, then you should definitely indulge in the rich pumpkin goodness of this holiday treat.
