Is it just me or have Trader Joes pie crusts been sweetened?

I haven't used a TJs pie crust in over a year, I pulled one out of the freezer that I purchased a couple of months ago for a quiche and while the quiche itself was quite delicious the crust was sweet and sort of ruined the whole thing.

Am I just not remembering them being sweet or did I get a bad (sweet) batch?

    I had never tried the TJ's crusts until a few months ago. I used one for a quiche and it was too sweet for me. I thought I had mistakenly bought the sweet crust. Did your package have a picture of a fruit pie on it?

      Yes it does have a photo of a pie on it. Is there a savory crust as well that we're missing?

        there's just one crust. (and puff, which does contain sugar, but i use it for savory preparations.)

          I have a freezer full of the puff as well but hate the thought of using puff for something simple like a quiche.

            I can't imagine how you could use the crust that gothamcity and I bought for savory preparations... Did we just get an overly-sweet batch?
