Andrea Gomes Morrison started this petition to Trader Joe's

Two weeks ago, I was alerted by a fellow Portuguese Seattleite that Trader Joe’s had Portuguese Natas. Whaaaaaaaaaat?

I ran out the door to find the freezer area empty, but when I inquired, they said they would have more in the morning. The manager that I spoke with said they were new but people were really excited by them. 

By the next morning, word was out in Seattle’s small but passionate Portuguese community. 

Today we were informed that they were seasonal, and they are all gone. Nooooooooo!

Why should you care? Well, Natas are a little bit of heaven on earth. These custard pastries are best served warm with a little cinnamon. I joke that “when you know, you know,” but seriously “when you know, you know!” They are so delicious!

Now there are many cities in America with thriving Portuguese communities that have Portuguese bakeries serving up fresh Natas on the daily. But for the rest of us, the majority of us, we were SO excited to have a little piece of home.

Plus, you don’t even need to “KNOW” a nata to enjoy them. They are a straight up delicious TJ dessert option that is delicious YEAR ROUND. Your friends will be so impressed when you serve these up with afternoon coffee or after dinner.

Join me in BEGGING Trader Joe’s to bring them back year round! Everyone will be happy!

And when we do, I have lots of ideas to expand their Portuguese offerings: bolinhos de bacalhau, rissois, alheiras, broa de avintes, Super Bock...
