The pros: Trader Joe's Teeny Tiny Avocados are the perfect size for one person which saves the grief and aggravation of attempting to store avocado.
The cons: If you are looking to make a bowl full of guacamole grab the regular sized avocados.
The verdict: I don't often review fresh produce. There are so very many variables. But this is a product that is fairly consistent, new and worth a look. Avocados are essentially natures butter. They are fatty and creamy. I'm in a small household where cutting open an avocado runs the risk of being wasteful. For the most part, I'm the only one who will eat them. With a regular sized Haas avocado that means I'm wrapping up half of an avocado.
I've seen all different tricks with people trying to store avocados. My mother stores them in milk to prevent them from browning. I've seen others press plastic wrap into them, but any air will result in a brown area. If you find that you have leftovers of avocado, perhaps this is the bag of avocados you should be reaching for instead.
For $2.99, Trader Joe's Teeny Tiny Avocados come in a bag of six. These shouldn't be called teeny tiny. They should be called Avocados for one. One avocado was enough to make a single Avocado Toast on Brioche Bread and topped with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. You are getting all of the flavor of the Haas avocado in a much smaller size.
A recent breakfast of mine:

These are labeled differently from regular avocados:
Would I buy this again? Yes, I think I'm on bag number three since I first noticed these. For a smaller household or for a more portion controlled avocado with no leftovers, this a solid choice. The only thing you are giving up here is the size of the avocado. Everything else is what you would expect from a regular size avocado.
