We’ve all done it. Run into Trader Joe’s, desperate for a few last-minute staple items.quinoa.jpg

There it was – eye-catching, under $5 (rare these days) and allegedly loaded with fiber.

I bought it.

We tasted it.

We rejected it. Why? No flavor. None. Zero. Zip. I’ve tasted cardboard with more flavor density and nuance than this. A cruel joke packaged with an eye-catching purple label and the word “Quinoa” boldly imprinted, this was bread made by people who had no tastebuds.

For people with no tastebuds.

If you, however, have tastebuds, you will want to avoid this product.
