Seville Orange Marmalade

Trader Joe's Seville Orange Marmalade
Price: $?
Rating: 2/10

I'd never really had orange marmalade until a few years ago when I was in Morocco on vacation, where they seemed to serve it with every breakfast. So when I saw this, I was excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I hated just about everything about this.

The consistency is very jelly-like and not easily spreadable, and there's pieces of orange peel in it which I found very strange. I could have gotten past this, but it was so overly bitter that it was basically inedible. I did try mixing this with some goat cheese at one point and putting it on french toast with a little bit of syrup, but it still wasn't great. Maybe if you mix it with mascarpone to offset the bitterness it might work, but honestly it's probably a better idea to just not buy it.

  1. Orange marmalade traditionally has orange peel in it. Size can vary, though. The Trader Joe’s Seville Orange marmalade is very pungent and bitter! I still don’t mind it, though. The Smucker’s version and other US brands are really sweet.
