When does the roast usually start coming in stores? I don't live near a TJs, but will make a trip for this. Maybe put some Yuba skin on it to make it all fancy.


Maybe my judgement is clouded due to remembering the grossness of that roast but I don't even think the people that liked it would recommend a special trip. I could be wrong. The Gardein roast is pretty good though.

I also think some people did ask for their money back from TJs for the roast but since you are far away, I'm guessing that wouldn't be easy for you to do.

Oh my, linalil! It's hard to imagine it being that bad! It almost makes me want to try it even more, in that weird kind of way. I'm not a fan of Tofurkey roast, but loved the Unturkey. Generally speaking, I think homemade ones are best, but it's fun to try them for the holidays sometimes.

I would do a special trip. I'm very sad that I won't be able to eat it this year due to discovering my gluten intolerance. I thought it was really yummy. I made the variation of putting it over vegetables, which if I am remembering correctly had a different cooking time and/or temp and might have led to it coming out differently. Ours wasn't mushy at all.

The pumpkin stuff is out! I went in for flour and came out with pumpkin-pecan oatmeal, pumpkin body butter, and a giant fantasy pumpkin. I am pleased.

I would love to hear about the pumpkin pecan oatmeal! Does it have a lot of sugar?

#1. What is a "giant fantasy pumpkin"?
#2. Do I want to know the answer to #1, or should I be content with what I'm imagining?

Boo :(

Aren't fantasy pumpkins the white ones or am I just imagining things again?

Is this no longer the case, then? I'm going to be so disappointed if it's gone forever. It's such a good scramble or taco ingredient. And so much cheaper than all the other soyrizo brands!

Wait a minute! It's bibbity bobbity boo?! Not bippity boppity boo? Are we sure? Because I feel like I need to go back in time and explain this to my 7 year old self.

I asked about the soyrizo again today (at a different location than before). They still say it's not discontinued, they are trying to resolve an issue with the supplier and hope to be able to get it back soon. There is hope (maybe).

Huh? Really? I need to check this out!

I'm also really excited because I just learned that my tiny TJs just expanded! They ripped out a wall and combined their store with the next store. Happiness!

I just got home a bit ago from Trader Joe's with a jar of this in my bag! I hesitated slightly before buying it because I vaguely remember all the talk here a while ago about their regular speculoos not being vegan, but I examined the label and it seemed fine to me. I ate a spoonful when I got home (someones gotta try it out, right?) and it is so. good. I'm going to have to hide the jar away. At my tj's there was a sign on the shelf right under this stuff saying they were enforcing an only 2 jars per person policy. People must be hoarding it!

Also! I got a bag of the coconut cashews because I saw them mentioned earlier, and they're delicious!

They didn't have it at my TJs the other day. I saw a review on a Trader Joe's review website last week. I'm not sure what I would do with it (other than eat it with a spoon). Do you have plans for yours?

with the regular speculoos, we often melt it and pour it over ice cream. i have a feeling we'll be doing that with this stuff too.
