What are the things you bought at TJ and will not buy again ?

For me, it's the Low Sodium Organic Butternut Squash soup....taste bland to me.... I think i need to add some more salt to it..

But this is one product I will not buy again.

List your not so favorite product from TJ so we know which product to avoid.

This is why I don't buy low-sodium! I always end up salting it! LOL.

I tried their salted chocolate caramels and I was very unimpressed. I know it's a trend now to salt sweets but I thought they were plain weird. I thought the chocolate dipped Candy Cane Joe-Joes were not nearly as tasty as the plain. Hmm, what else? Oh, I know it's a popular item but I didn't care for the brie and raspberry phyllo rolls. I tried their TJ's brand Greek yogurt recently. It was good, but I'd rather spend a bit more and get Fage, plus Fage has more protein.

The pumpkin bread mix. It was ok, just not a lot of flavor.

I love the Jasmine Rice (frozen).
It takes 3 minutes in the micro and is so moist and de-lish!

so far I've been pleasantly surprised with just about EVERYTHING at TJs~ however we did try some weird cheese bread thing that was just not good ~ it was almost like a flat bread with several different cheeses ~ definately wouldn't buy that again....oh and I bought some organic apples that I ended up throwing out to the deer, they just weren't very "apple" like

Other than that....I LOVE Trader Joe's ~ heck I even travel 45 minutes just to get to one!!!

Right now I'm loving their mini gingerbread men and their dark chocolate stars...gotta love holiday items.

the sugar free chai tea, and some sort of marinara sauce. On the opposite side I always pick up the orange chicken and Jasmine Rice. Oh, the organice tortilla chips are good as well.

I don't think I've tried anything and disliked it, but there are plenty of things I probably won't buy again because I just wanted to try them and didn't like them enough to justify the cost vs the cost I'm used to paying with coupons or at Aldis. I probably won't rebuy the gingerbread coffee. It was OK but by the time I was done with it I was really sick of it.

Can I say we won't be regularly buying anything? They closed "our" store and moved it miles away. The store they closed was in a county area (Sun City) which does not charge tax on food, and the new store is now in a city that taxes food. I just won't pay tax on grocery food. Almost all the cities around Phoenix charge tax on food, but Phoenix doesn't, so if we are going by a TJs in Phoenix on other errands we will stop in. (Arizona does not charge food tax either.)

The turkey gravy was a big disaster! Someone had mentioned that it was bad last year on the Thanksgiving post and so I tasted it before I dumped it into our drippings. Very nasty! And the swiss beer cheese fondue in a packet in the refrigerator case was also not good. It had a gritty texture and hardly a cheese taste. But we do love the triple ginger cookies and the frozen colossal shrimp are the best!

Not a fan of the brownies with sea salt! Some may love them though.
Also their castille soap was not great as it's peppermint and aloe and the aloe smells a little strange and gloopy. At least it's just a cleaning product but Dr. Bronners is 10x's nicer.

Avoid the RF Brie, it was a wedge of "Light Brie" I think. I was trying to be healthy, I should have known not to skimp on the Brie.

We are very happy with all of the other cheeses. Now they are listing what type of rennet they use, which is a big deal for DH since he is a veggie and you don't want to know where animal rennet comes from. WF is great about putting "Vegetarian" on their cheeses, and TJs is getting MUCH better.

I didn't like the Trader Joe's Veggie Burgers, taste like pure cumin. TERRIBLE.

The Peppermint Hot Chocolate was very bland.

Other than that, I love Trader Joe's!!

I just bought the Cherry Granola Cookies and they were so-so. I was expecting more dried cherry flavor but really just tasted raisins. They did have a great granola taste and nice chewy texture though. Their peppermint salt water taffy is really, really good!

Crunchy Seaweed....Tastes fishy (VERY FISHY) and smells like an outhouse in the middle of an ocean. I think you can see from my review that they will never be on my shopping list again!

frozen grilled chicken burgers - they were very unchicken-y, watery and sponge like

frozen Dr Praegers california burgers - I dont like veg-all so I didnt like these

frozen chimichurri rice

I love the veggie sticks that they sell in the snacks aisle (theyre yummy, like healthy Munchos) but I dont like the green (spinach) flavored ones and for that reason I wont buy them again
