Trader Joe’s is notorious for selling delicious food at affordable prices. From their tasty snacks to their frozen finds, TJ’s is the place to be for high quality food at low prices. Every now and again we find an item on the shelf that is surprising to us; not just because of the taste and the price, but for the quality of the product itself. And after seeing the latest post from TJ’s expert @trader_joes_treasure_hunt on Instagram, the latest Trader Joe’s find has our jaws on the floor: A 100% Sicilian Lemon Juice for just $3.29.

Served in a green bottle with just over 8-ounces of juice, this 100% Sicilian Lemon Juice is made from real lemons and not from a concentrate, making it even better quality (read: gourmet) compared to some of the other lemon juices you typically see on shelves. Sick of having to squeeze lemons for your pasta dishes, your desserts, or even your cocktails? This bottle makes it easy to have high-quality freshly-squeezed lemon juice on hand whenever your recipe calls for it.

And of course, Trader Joe’s shoppers are loving this gourmet find. “Nice! It has just one ingredient, I will [definitely] buy,” writes one shopper. “[Buying] to have on hand…I love fresh lemon juice,” writes another.

According to Trader Joe’s, their 100% Sicilian Lemon Juice is made with real organic lemons cultivated in Italy. The Italian lemon is cultivated on the island of Sicily and is known for their “aromatic, slightly oily peels and bright, sour-yet-slightly-less-acidic flavor.” The culinary experts over at TJ’s say their favorite dishes to make with this lemon juice include lemon bars, chicken piccata, salad dressings, and of course, a cocktail paired with rosemary.

With such a high-quality product at a great price, it’s only a matter of time before this Trader Joe’s gourmet staple becomes one of their most popular products of all time, don’t you think?
