    I Kept Seeing Trader Joe’s Pancake Bread So I Stopped Fighting The Urge To Try It And Here’s What It’s Like


    Hi, I'm Christopher, and I have a serious sweet tooth. Recently, I saw that Trader Joe's was selling something called "Pancake Bread," and it really stuck with me.

    earlier this week i saw some beautiful baked good called pancake bread at trader joe's and i resisted the urge to buy it but here i am, multiple days later at 11:30pm, still thinking about that d*ng pancake bread

    Every time I'd go to Trader Joe's, I'd make eye contact with the pancake bread and spend 10 minutes hovering over it like a parent admiring their newborn baby in its crib.

    I was hesitant to buy it because I knew that I have zero self control, so if I liked the pancake bread, I'd have to resist buying it every time I was in a Trader Joe's moving forward, and frankly, I didn't trust myself to do that.

    I kept asking cashiers if they'd tried it and having them describe its taste for me. I'm realizing now, as I typed out that sentence, just how weird it is.

    When you label something pancake bread, the bar is set so, so, SO high. Like, impossibly high to meet. I tried to lower my expectations before eating this, just to be fair.

    The time had finally come — pancake bread and I met, and here were my thoughts:

    On a scale of 1-10, I give this a STRONG 8, and I recommend trying it, particularly if you're a lover of baked goods.

    Until the next magnificent concoction Trader Joe's cooks up, let's talk about pancake bread and nothing else.
