I love that an omni reviewer takes the side of vegans!

I never really ate soyrizo all that much, but all this talk about it is making me want it now.

Apparently they're going to discontinue the new soyrizo, and [eventually] bring back a new-new-soyrizo that is vegan like the old soyrizo was: (read all the way to the bottom)

http://www.whatsgoodattraderjoes.com/2014/04/trader-joes-soy-chorizo-20.html


I saw that review on that site. I follow this site regularly. Good to see they are going to fix this, but not sure why they changed it in the first place. It was soooo good. I know many non-vegans who used to eat this stuff and love it. A local place used to serve soyrizo and potato taocs that people raved about. Why mess with a good thing?

I don't think it was that they actually chose to change it, I'm pretty sure it was an issue with their vendor. Either the vendor changed the recipe or they raised the price/ couldn't keep with TJs demand, so TJs went looking for a new vendor, and the new one happened to not be vegan. So I think their "going back to the drawing board" is going to be either looking for a new vendor who makes a vegan product, or pressuring the current one to change the recipe.

Black rice. We cook it with half black and half brown. It's so good.

I found new zucchini fries in the frozen section. I made them this weekend for a BBQ and HOLY crepe - so good. A little greasy even though I baked them, but so tasty!!

Those zucchini fries are so tasty!

My store just got in mild yellow miso! The packaged gnocchi on the pasta shelf was labeled new and now looks to be vegan (depending on your stance with unlabeled mono and diglycerides). My store was already out, but they did also start carrying "hot and sweet" cherry peppers (like peppadews) that are really yummy on sandwiches. Bet you could also stuff them with some cashew goat cheese.

THEY BROUGHT BACK THE SUPER FIRM, HIGH PROTEIN TOFU!

They told me they discontinued it, and also they stopped carrying the name brand at other stores. I sadly resigned myself to pressing tofu for the rest of my life.

My SO came home from TJ's last night with FOUR of them for me :)

In the spice section there's a blend called South African Smoke. It's in a grinder and has paprika, garlic, basil, pepper. It's smoky and delicious - much more than the sum of its parts! Just had it on some avocado tacos.

we did not care for the black rice - then again we eat basmati with everything. i just could not get the black rice to be fluffy or more than a slimy brown rice texture.

Sorry you didn't care for it. Maybe I'm weird but I like the slimy wet rices.

I was told today that the vegan mozzarella was discontinued. My trip resulted in no vegan cheese, out of my fave vegan cookies, no soy yogurt...boh. If I didn't have booze I don't know how I'd go on. Sniff.

Nope. My BFF has started to do a lot more shopping for her family there because she finds it much more affordable too. I don't go there enough, but when I do, I tend to let myself get whatever looks interesting and I'm always pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive it seems to be.

missmuffcake, I think Trader Joe's is really affordable too. My problem is I'm easily distracted by all the yummy options and end up buying a bunch of things I didn't intend to and spend more. I guess that's true of me and ALL stores, though. I feel the magnetic pull of cookies.

Yes, they do have good prices. But--if it's important to you--you have to watch out for items that are from China, Russia, etc., and also non-organic things.

I think it's more affordable in terms of pantry staples but the produce is not good quality and is overpriced.

As an omni I thought their stuff was a great deal (mostly the cheeses).

I find TJ's way more affordable than the chain supermarkets, and certainly than WF or the local HFS. My one quibble is with the produce (not enough variety, too much packaging), but I buy my staples there, and then head to a local Price Rite, which caters to a largely Latin-American clientele and has really awesome produce for cheap. When all my kids are at home we have 5 people (and when my stepdaughters come it swells to 7) in the house, and between those two places, I can generally get a whole week's groceries for under $200, and only need the health food store for nooch and a couple other things.
