You know it’s the holiday season at Trader Joe’s when the Fondue products hit the shelves in the cheese department! One of my favorite foods in the world is cheese and there is nothing better on a nice cozy night in the middle of winter and getting out the fondue pot, a nice loaf of bread, and a packet of fondue with your family. Trader Joe’s has been selling this La Fondue for as long as I have been shopping there, going on 15 years now.
But, what if you don’t want to go through all that fuss and just pop something in the microwave, and voila, instant Fondue? Well, Trader Joe’s has a solution to that problem, Trader Joe’s La Fondue! What we have here is a big paper cup like container that you pop in the microwave for about five minutes and you have real fondue! But do we really? Let’s break it down… But before we do that, let’s cover what Fondue is supposed to be.
