This Trader Joe’s gochujang is a solid addition to the many different Asian sauces, spices and pastes that TJs has offered over the years. Trader Joes gochujang was also sold in a bigger squeeze bottle at one point, but while this isn’t as easy to use, it’s nice that you can buy just a little bit of this delicious fermented red pepper paste for under $2. For those that haven’t had the gochuchang flavor before, it has a slight kick to it, with a super funky, fermented taste that I think a lot of people will either love or hate. The Trader Joe’s gochujang almonds are probably a good way to test if you like this flavor before diving in and buying this little tub………….
