Slowly making my way through a box of the coffee mochi...fun! Pretty mild in flavors imo, but enjoyable texture. My first ice cream mochi experience, so that's a check-mark. Probably wouldn't buy again, so few for so much packaging.

I bought the coffee mochi for my husband and he thought it was way too coconutty - this is a man whose sweet tooth is so strong he's eaten every single baking fail I've ever had, and he actually won't eat these. Just an FYI for non-fans of coconut.

Does mochi ice cream have the same texture as regular mochi? (I absolutely cannot eat mochi. Worst textural experience of my entire life.)

That surprises me. I can't taste the coconut at all. Just coffee.

My husband can taste sniff out coconut from a mile away, and he just hates it. Thanks for the head's up, I won't ask him to try it now! Me, on the other hand...*eats all of the coconuts*

Thanks! I'll definitely skip it - more mochi for everyone else.

We tried the coffee mochi today and like them.
The new vegan mayo is also good. I think I still like veganaise low fat better, but if they keep it in stock I'll be happy to pick it up and save myself another trip sometimes. The price seems good too.

New vegan mayo?! That's cool to know - I hate the accidentally vegan low fat stuff they carry.

I went to a TJ's and the crowds / line were ridiculous enough to make browsing impossible so I ran away. I'll try again sometime just not at 5pm in Manhattan!

The coffee mochi is so good. Way better than the mango imo. Also digging the Pumpkin Vinaigrette. I think it would be great on a kale salad since it has that sweetness.

Ok Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk. Get it. Love it. You're welcome.
(It's with the shelf-stable milks.)

This is delicious! It's so thick. The fact that it's shelf-stable eliminates any doubt I would have about hoarding it.

Okay, I have to try the Almond Milk!

The coffee mochi is amazing. I ate all 6 with no regrets. SO GOOD. The liquid center is the best thing. So oooooooozy

I went back for more of the PS Almond Milk and mine were all sold out as well. I should've bought more the first time! Oh well it gives me another excuse to check back.

I went this weekend & got the pumpkin spice almond milk & the pumpkin spice granola bark. I wish more of the seasonal offerings were vegan.

I am completely addicted to the Thai Lime and Chili Almonds! They used to have canned lentil and split pea soups that I loved that I'm pretty sure were repackaged Amy's. I recently went and found both soups, but they are now packaged in boxes and they are disgusting! It makes me sad because the cans were cheaper than Amy's!

PUMPKIN SPICE ALMOND MILK WHAT WHAT WHAT

Oh my god I'm going to TJ's immediately. ALL of the TJ's! My closest one never has any of the cool vegan things. I haven't seen any of the vegan mochi, which makes me so sad, and very little else. So I wonder if they'll have the almond milk. Whatever, I will travel the city, visiting every TJ's...

I found it! To be honest, I find the pumpkin spice almond milk a little weird? It's weirdly thick, like it's pumpkin pie filling with almond milk stirred in. I don't know how I feel about it. I know that it DOESN'T work in coffee :(

The pumpkin granola bark is amazing, though!! Dang.

I made a TJ's trip this morning and saw some interesting stuff:
-Almond cheese shreds. I kind of have my doubts about this, just a gut feeling, but I picked it up to try. For science and all.
-Vegan brown rice krispy treats! Didn't buy these (I'm trying to follow my "only desserts I cook myself" rule), but checked the label.
-Green Fin Pinot Noir. This label is vegan-friendly and I don't think I've seen the Pinot before, just the blends.
-Some new baking chocolate that was vegan - didn't buy it because I'm cheap and bake with the 72% pound plus.
-My TJs still had tons of the pumpkin spice almond milk. I bought some but it's chilling in the fridge so I haven't tasted it yet.

Was excited to see pumpkin gluten-free pancake mix but it has buttermilk powder. The pumpkin mochi also have dairy ice cream in them (I thought I would check since the mango and coffee ones were both gluten and dairy free).

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but if it's the almond shreds they've had for years, those are just lactose-free and still have casein.

Has anyone seen any seasonal soymilks? I really like having a little bit of protein in a post-workout treat...

crepe, you're right. I guess these are going back to TJ's the next time I go. That will teach me to assume that something labeled "cheese substitute" is, in fact, a cheese substitute without reading the label. (I still don't understand why they're putting almonds in dairy cheese product instead of just making it with lactose free milk? Who exactly is the target audience for this crepe?) My store has never had it to my memory, only the other shreds in the white and green packaging, so I assumed it was a new product for soy-phobes or something.

The pumpkin spice almond milk was good but not life-changing for me. It is pretty thick and would be disconcerting if you were expecting flavored almond milk. The texture is a lot like silk soy nog, but it's not too sweet or rich.
