Oh I bought the gardein version of those at Target, those stuffed roasts aren't bad. I'm not sure I'd buy them again either because I didn't care for the breading.

Sadly, I do not like the TJ's sriracha nearly as much as the "regular" stuff.
I am also quite disappointed in the boxed miso ginger broth. It has that funny taste that most boxed soups and broths have, so I don't know why I was expecting more. But I could make a better miso broth in five minutes.

I had the mini Breaded Stuffed Turkey-less roasts for Thanksgiving and thought they were great. Really super tasty.

I bought another bag of these because I had leftover gravy. (Obviously I couldn't waste that gravy, so I had to buy and cook more things to put it on. Makes sense.) Anyway I almost bought the roast but it just didn't seem as appealing. I guess I like my fake meats either in small pieces, breaded, puff pastry-d, or otherwise disguised.


Do they still sell those spinach flatbread pizzas? Where in the store are they, if they do? I keep looking, to no avail.

The Trader Joe's Sugar Cookie Mix is vegan except for the frosting, which is easy to replace. I used chia seeds and water instead of egg and Earth Balance and the cookies were perfect! The colored sugar is dyed with vegetable coloring. YUM!

Sure you can make the cookies from scratch and buy colored sugars, but sometimes its nice to just toss your toddler a box and go.

Holy crepe, that canned coconut cream is the BEST. I put it in the fridge to make it even thicker and then whipped it up with a dash of cinnamon and sugar and put it on top of my pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. It's insane how much it tastes like dairy cream. And now I'm putting it in my coffee (not pretty, but tasty), on my pancakes, and wherever else I can justify it. Sure, it's got some additives which makes it not as pure as regular coconut milk, but it's a nice holiday treat.

I want to make trifle for Christmas, and that sounds like exactly what we need for the whipped cream. Thanks for the tip!

YES! I have a can right now in my fridge ready to use on the chocolate cake from ISI this weekend. I've made this before adding just a bit of powdered sugar for sweetner. I have also put leftovers (Ha, can you believe we had any) in the freezer for a few days, thawed in the fridge and it was just as tasty.

I feel like there was something wrong with my can when I bought it. It tasted off, not coconut-y "off", but like it was secretly durian cream (YUM?). My mom commented that it smelled "like armpit." This was just a bad can, right? There's still hope. . . . right? :/

I used a can to make a pumpkin flan for thanksgiving. It did not smell or taste like armpits or durian to me. Everyone seemed to think the flan was delicious. So I think you probably got a bad can.

Maybe buy a back up can of some other brand just in case you have a super sensitivity to some taste in the TJ's stuff that my inferior taste buds are not discerning. It would be a shame to have Christmas ruined by funky coconut.

The funny thing is, I had a can of coconut milk that I bought before discovering the pure cream at TJ's. I just didn't bring it along! Silly. I might have to make whipped-cream-topped cocoa tonight. FOR SCIENCE.

I'm going to call it The Chocolate Smacking Orange from now on! It is already one of my favorites; now it has a great nick name!

I just discovered the little mini sourdough loaves for bread bowls, etc. Only a buck and DELICIOUS! I devoured it with three layer hummus. I also tried the new chicken-less salad. I wasn't a fan. . . My boyfriend happily ate it for me. He thought it tasted crab-salad-like, which is probably what turned me off.

Also, somewhat unrelated, but I was giggling at the placement of the non-mini non-breaded turkey-less roasts in my store. next to the real turkey. That's where all veg*ns think to look for their food - in the meat!

That sounds tasty! I really liked crab salad as an omni. What is it made out of. . . is it shredded Gardein chicken-less strips?

My coworker brought it to our holiday party last night! She's not vegan but she got it for me (such a sweetheart!). I thought it was super delicious! I think it is maybe chunks of the TJs chikenless strips (the ones in the refrigerated section)? It didn't taste crab salady to me, but maybe that is because I have never had crab salad.
