I have never seen vegan bagels at TJ....However we get a lot of vegan fresh bread - some of those have had the V removed recently. :(

things i have tried recently that are new to me:

the snack-o's or whatever they are called (the vegan onion ring thingies): delicious! i've never had funyuns so i have no idea how they compare, but i kept hearing people say how good these are, and i finally got a chance to try them. they're weirdly sweet, which i wasn't expecting, but i love it.

the herbed popcorn: i don't really consider myself a popcorn fan at all (kettle corn is another matter entirely), but again, i had to try this because you guys kept saying it was so good. and it is! i really like the dill in there, it gives it a little kick of something different. yum.

the! cinnamon! rolls! in! a! tube!: oh em gee! so delicious! like Amy said, obviously not the same as from-scratch, but soooo good as the first 'pop out of a can' cinnamon rolls that i've had in over 8 years. we had them this weekend, and fed them to omnis for breakfast, and they were a big hit. yay! i'll totally be buying these again.

Oh, I don't know if everyone knows this, but TJ's is transitioning to BPA free liners for all their cans and all their canned beans are BPA free. Its the only place I buy beans for me and L as a result.


so awesome. thanks for the heads up, Tofulish. my spouse and i avoid canned foods because of the BPA (we only buy the BPA free Eden goodies when we don't feel like making beans from scratch) and it's awesome to know TJ's is on board with the BPA free awesomenesses. MEGAyay!

I couldn't find coconut yogurt when I went today, but I didn't think to check the big cartons. I did notice they didn't have the single serving fruit flavored soy yogurts anymore (fine by me as long as they keep the big carton of vanilla). And they were out of magical marshmallow almond milk, so boo.

oh my gosh that's so exciting about BPA free Trader Joe's beans! I recently started making beans from scratch because of the BPA and I get seriously frustrated at how long it takes... will be stocking up on canned beans for lazier days.

I feel like Trader Joes is so varied in its product availability nationally. I've never seen some of the vegan stuff mentioned online at the two Trader Joes near me.

I must have missed the discussion about this almond milk. What is it?

They don't have the big cartons of coconut milk yogurt at my store yet, only the little guys who just seemed to appear this week.
.....WHAT is magical marshmallow almond milk?!

Its the refridgerated unsweetened vanilla almond milk! Makes yo bran cereal taste like Lucky Charms.

The coconut yogurt comes in vanilla and blueberry. I like that now theres a wider variety of non-dairy yogurt flavours! Split a coconut vanilla with my omni mom last night and we both thought it was nice. $1.49 each.

Actually, we had a completely Trader Joe's dinner! I made organic mashed sweet potatoes with frozen pineapple tidbits, corn on the cob with avocado lime butter, crispy chickenless tenders, and roasted broccolini. Then for dessert, cocoyogurt with organic strawberries/mango.

So I tried the fresh pasta this week...the new kind that is marked vegan (linguine I think?)

I am sorry to report that it was really gross. First of all, it said 7 servings per package (similar to dried pasta). Yeah, no. A whole package was maybe 3 good size portions

And I understand it was fresh pasta, and even though the cooking instructions were 5-7 minutes, I took off at 3 minutes and they were still mushy and gross. Not falling apart overcooked, but a weird consistancy. Didn't hold any of the flavor of my sauce either.

Oh well...some stuff at TJ's sucks. Not many items, I am really happy with about 90%, but some do. I think this falls into the sucky category.

still <3 TJ's though!

I tried the fresh rice noodles and they were awful :( A soggy, mushy mess. I cooked them two different times, making sure not to overcook. Starchy and gross both times. Oh well. I wish my TJ's carried regular ol' soba noodles.

I didn't spot the coconut yogurt at the Hollywood PDX store yet, but I'm keeping my eye out. I don't actually like eating yogurt, but I like baking with it. I baked with So Delicious coconut yogurt a few weeks ago and loved the texture and and tang it gave.

I did, however, grab the cinnamon rolls. DUM DUM DUM.

Still no coconut yogurt sightings, but I did see some new-to-me dark chocolate covered nuts/toffee bits.

I saw the small containers of coconut yogurt at the Greenville, SC store this weekend, but not the big containers.

I'm going tonight, so excited!

I'm really glad I'm not the only one who thinks the unsweetened vanilla almond milk tastes like Lucky Charms milk. It wa weirding me out at first, but now I enjoy it.

I have really been liking the brown rice tortillas. I warmed them up and they were pretty darn good.

I was there a few hours ago searching desperately for these! What sort of packaging do they come in?

Not sure if this is a new item, but I picked up the frozen falafel the other day, and made a wrap with the TJ's flatbread and tahini sauce last night. It was surprisingly good.

So i read an article that I found on this thread about how TJ's stuff is all just repackaged brand name foods. Does anyone know what their non-dairy cream cheese is? It is so not tofutti. I looked at the two containers side by side and the main ingredient in the TJ brand is coconut oil which is tastier than soybean oil found in the tofutti. Just curious if anyone knows bc I've never seen anything other than tofutti, although maybe i'm just sheltered.......

It's Galaxy brand.
