Trader Joe’s Just Brought Back “the Best” Bougie Treat That Sold Out Fast Last Year
Trader Joe’s is stocking the shelves with fan-favorite items both new and old. From their Stollen Crisps to the iconic Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s, you can always rely on the grocer to keep your cart and belly full. What’s the most recent new product, you ask? Well, Harry & David Holiday Comice Pears have just hit the produce section, spotted by some shoppers on Reddit.
If you have ever had the pleasure of receiving a Harry & David gift box, you know that their pears are unlike any other. The fruit is sweet, juicy, and all around the most perfect pear you could ever ask for. While you can snag a box of six from Harry & David’s online store for $39.99, Trader Joe’s is selling them for a limited time at $9.99 per box. The pears are considered an “opportunity buy,” which means they won’t be around for long.
One of the greatest parts about pears is that they don’t spoil as quickly as some other fruits. Harry & David suggest keeping them at room temperature until you can gently press on the base of the stem with your finger and it surrenders. Then, you can leave the pears in the fridge for up to 10 days.
While the image from the Reddit thread is at an undisclosed location, commenters chimed in where they spotted the fruits across the United States including Massachusetts, Texas, Virginia, New Jersey, and California. “These are the best pears I’ve ever had in my life,” wrote one user. “I’d gladly pay that much for a box considering the price they go for online.”
One Redditor asked the group what the big deal is — what’s so exciting about pears? They were met with a sea of praise. “Just try them, they’re SO good,” read one reply. “I don’t eat pears unless they’re Harry and David.”
With reviews like these, be pre-pear-ed for these to sell out ASAP.
