Review: Trader Joe's - Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread Pudding is a seasonal fall offering that's been sitting in my fridge since November that features a mix of pumpkin bread and pumpkin custard baked together.

A 20-ounce box was $3.99.

This comes frozen and requires at least an hour to thaw. After thawing, you can reheat it in the oven or microwave; I went with the microwave which took 2 minutes per slice.

Hot out of the microwave, the slice managed to retain cohesion while still remaining quite moist. The edges were bereft of the custard though and remained mostly soft pumpkin bread.

Not far past the edges, the custard made its appearance delivering extra pumpkin flavor and a good bit of custard-y eggy-ness.

Interestingly, the Pumpkin Bread Pudding wasn't overly sweet, making it ideal for adding a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. In fact, I found myself wishing for some vanilla ice cream while eating it.

Overall, Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread Pudding is like pumpkin pie in moist bread form. It packs a good amount of pumpkin and spice and pairs it with a rich custard.
