TJ's Taste Test, Part Four Of Many: Bambino Pizza Greco

Awwww, cute little bambinos!

That's what attracted me to these miniature spinach, feta cheese, and sun dried tomato pizzas. It was like finding a cute little abandoned baby, wrapped in swaddling cloths and all--you just haaaave to take it home! The clever guys at Trader Joes even drew a little cherub on the packaging to seal the deal.

But ya know what? This kid kinda sucks. It's not really a good kid, not very sweet. And there's no excitement, not even any kicking and screaming. All it is is kinda sour. Damn sun-dried tomatoes on these are way too tart and overpower the whole itty-bitty pizza. The spinach, cheese and crust were bland--way boring.


Looks Can Be Deceiving: Bambino From Hell

Usually, you're lucky if you can get the kid to sleep, but in this case, I tried adding salt and grated parmesan to my bambino to try and wake it up. OK, a little better, but not enough to convince me to adopt another one of these little tykes from Trader Joe's.

For the 4 bucks or so that you'll spend, you're stuck with 4 of these little pipsqueaks, not just one. Oh, and another thing? Please don't take any parenting advice from me.

I kind of feel sorry for you. You can't discern between a pizza made for adults and the ones made for kids. Trader Joe's pizza greco was the best tasting pizza I have ever tasted. What made the pizza even more amazing was it had almost twice the grams of protein in it than grams of sugar, and one pizza with 250 calories could fill me up.

Pizza Greco was also part of a diet that I created in which I lost 15 pounds within two months, without exercising. Trader Joe's Pizza Greco, (when consumed by an aware adult), was so satisfying I could leave the dinner table having eaten less than half of what I used to eat.

If you'd like I'll send you some gift certificates to Chucky Cheeses.
