Trader Joes Os Organic Spaghettios Review – I thought initially that this would be a taste test and review of very similar products. Ingredients-wise, they’re very different. Trader Joe’s promises and delivers on their organic claim. This is a welcome relief for legions of parents that are looking to cut high-fructose corn syrup and preservatives out of their children’s diet. The differences weren’t limited to the ingredients. They both had what I feel are noticeably different tastes. Trader Joe’s Os Organic Spaghettios have a much sweeter taste or tang to them. By comparison, Campbell’s SpaghettiOs taste saltier to me despite having less sodium. SpaghettiOs has a noticeably thicker, heartier consistency while Trader Joe’s Os are a bit runnier and tend to slide right out of the can. Overall, I prefer the taste of Trader Joe’s Os spaghettios (as did my son). This was one taste test where “organic” trumped “artificial ingredients.” The extra 50 cents per can paid may be worth the taste and the piece of mind that comes with organic. I hope this review was helpful.
