It is vegan here (Virginia).

Does the pumpkin spice tea have black tea in it? Or is it more of an herbal tea?

Stash pumpkin spice was disappointing to me because it barely tasted like tea, even though it claimed to be black tea based.


It's rooibos, with natural pumpkin flavor, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

No kale chips at my store yet, or they got them and already sold out. I did see they now have packaged chopped and washed rainbow chard for $1.99. I didn't get it, because I know DH will eat the kale and I didn't have room in the budget for both. Looked pretty tasty though. Saw they also have those little dishwasher tablets. I think they were $4.99 for 20 of them. Didn't actually read if they were vegan, but would assume they are.

I love those Golden Rounds crackers. So addictive. I ate an entire log of them in one sitting last night, plan on eating another tonight.

I bought the kale chips today--they were in the new section end-cap at my store). I want to try making my own kale chips, but figured I should actually try them and make sure I like them before doing so.

I just found a TJ 4 miles from work! It is a bad 4 miles that will probably add a solid hour to my commute home, but that's better than the one I thought was the closest.

If I can leave early enough on Tuesday, I might stop.

Where are you in Oregon? If you're in Portland, 've seen all three of these at the Cesar Chavez TJ.



Nope, Eugene. They may have had them at one time but new stuff sells out quickly here.

I got some of the pumpkin tea and coconut yogurt. I'm excited for the tea because it's starting to get really cold here.

I got the pumpkin tea, too but haven't tried it yet. I've been drinking the pumpkin spice coffee lately - it's pretty good. The kale chips are awesome - I finally understand all the fuss about kale chips. The ones I made at home once were truly awful, so this was a nice surprise. My only complaint was that about a fourth of the bag was crumbs and not usable. I have the same problem with TJs cereals. Guess it's unavoidable, but it is annoying.

I got the kale chips today; they're good! My TJ's was out of soy creamer though (one of my staples; boooo!) and the pumpkin tea that I really wanted to try.

You all made me nervous. I'm thinking the pumpkin tea is the new candy cane joe-joes. I went back the other day and bought two more tins.

I think if you love the tea getting more tins is a good idea. When I called the 3 stores near me and asked if they were getting more, they all told me that the warehouse is out and that is all they are getting in for the season. Actually 1 store said that they might get more and I hope that is true. I am so sad!

Mine were super crumbly for a large portion too. I put them in a bowl and spooned them like cereal. Worked well enough.

I'm in NJ, and buy the enchilada sauce regularly and have been buying it for the past few years. Always has a V on it and is kosher pareve.

I always mean to mention to this thread the Old-Fashioned Peanuts (they say "Blistered" and are in a blue bag). My partner and toddler are obsessed with them; they're a bit salty so we ration them but very tasty, even more so than just roasted peanuts.

And I'm kinda bummed because I just realized that the orange juice we've been buying from TJs forever is fortified with D3. So most definitely not vegan, right? fork.

To those who are making PSLs with the rooibos tee...are you using 2 teabags to make it extra strong or just letting it steep longer?

Mine is out of the TJ's and said they're not sure if they're getting more. Guy I talked to seemed to think there was a possibility that the warehouse would restock.

I got shredded brussels sprouts, though!

I finally tried the salt and pepper Mexican chocolate (they were sampling it!). It was really good! Next time I need chocolate, I'm going for that! Also tried the kale chips. Pretty good. Though I kinda disagree with the idea that they are "nacho" flavored... I was like "yeah, I could see that a vegan would think this tastes like a nacho, but I don't think the general public would be as convinced..."

I had the rainbow chard for dinner tonight. I sauteed it in a little bit of veggie stock with some cracked pepper...delicious!

So I was curious about the Pumpkin Spice Tea really being vegan even though it isn't labeled as such so I emailed TJ's a couple of days ago and this was the response I got, Thank you for your email. This product does not contain any animal ingredients or derivatives and is Vegan. Time to go stock up on more before it's all gone.

YES. These are so good. I know they are the same as the regular ones, but they are cute! And I think they are smaller, so better for portion control, I can take a few with me to work every day.

Thanks! I was worried about the natural flavors! Off to TJs!

I got the tea - I just added some coconut creamer to it...I think it needs some stevia or something....

There are no mystery natural flavors in that tea -- it is "natural pumpkin flavor."
