Prepare to be Astonished - Trader Joe's All Natural, Brined, Fresh Young Turkeys Arrive starting November 11th!
Lobster, seal and swans were purportedly on the menu for the first Thanksgiving. Not turkey? Not likely. Not anymore. Today, the word Turkey is practically interchangeable with Thanksgiving, and the bird is not just part of the meal – it's arguably the most important part. As such, selecting a turkey should be paramount in your preparations. So ponder this:
At Trader Joe's, we take pride in our turkeys. We carry only the freshest, finest, All Natural Turkeys from U.S. farms in Minnesota, California and Pennsylvania. All of our birds are Grade A, with the most sought after tender, moist meat. And they are "All Natural," which, at Trader Joe's, means that they are minimally processed with NO artificial ingredients, they never receive any antibiotics or growth hormones, and they are raised on a diet of 100% vegetarian feed. But we don't stop there. All of our turkeys come brined (with salt – Kosher salt is used for Glatt Kosher birds) to ensure that they remain succulent and juicy as they roast.
You might expect a premium for this added value – please! – premiums, schmemiums, we're Trader Joe's. We are honest about our costs and that means straightforward, reasonable pricing. So starting November 11th, we're bringing in Trader Joe's All Natural, Brined, Fresh Young Turkeys (12-22 pound birds) for $1.99 per pound and Trader Joe's Glatt Kosher, All Natural, Fresh Young Turkeys (12-16 pound birds) for $2.49 per pound. Something this astonishing won't be around for long...
