Foods you love at Trader Joe's that got discontinued? [OLD]

That other foods you love...thread I started has gotten unwieldy. Anyway, I was just at Trader Joe's this morning and I fear they've discontinued the cereal I love! It's Trader Joe's label with dried cranberries, granola clusters and flakes. Sad :(. Other things I'm sad they no longer carry: the 4 oz. packages of snackmasters turkey jerky, the awesome bloody mary mix they once had and the pumpkin butter (I know it'll be back around in the fall, but I wish this one wasn't seasonal).

  1. I mourn the loss of the frozen gyoza. The Thai gyoza are not as good. From what I hear, TJs is planning to bring them back when they can find a producer, since the old producer went out of business, but I don't know if I can make it until then ;)

      I haven't been able to find the veg. chili the last few times I've been to TJs. I hope it's not gone. Does anyone know? Throw in a little frozen corn and a dash of hot sauce and it's a low-cal, high fiber lunch. (Or it was.)

      1. re: pamalamb

        I miss the gyoza as well. I like the Thai shrimp gyoza well enough, but the regular was far better.

        1. re: pamalamb

          Yes, miss the Gyoza too, and the marconi almonds -- without rosemary.

          1. re: jillita

            I'm in Los Angeles... I have recently seen marcona almonds, but they are now in much smaller bags (and are much cheaper than they used to be). By the way, Costco sells a big tub (much more than TJ's) of marcona almonds for about $7.

            Agreed...I almost cried when I found out that my pork gyoza fix would have to be sustained elsewhere!

              I loved their Pork Potstickers! I thought I was the only one! I also miss their shiritaki tofu fettuccini, the blister peanuts they always seem to be out of, and their morello cherries.

            2. re: pamalamb

              They're back!! I just bought 2 bags of the chicken gyoza (and I've already eaten half a bag). Here's to hoping the shrimp or veggie versions make an appearance soon.

            3. I mourn the loss of the Yin Yang peanuts. (Wasabi and honey roasted mix.)

              D*mn you, Trader Joe.

                I mourn the loss of their garlic pistachios...

              2. Long, long ago (years) they carried soy beef taquitos. Every time I go I get my hopes up high in the sky that they might, just might, have returned. And then I peek into the freezer section and get crushed when the reality sets in that they're just not coming back... Sniff.

                  I agree - almost guilt-free taquito that tasted great... we used to have them at least once a week!

                2. Several years ago I got a great modena balsamic that was aged 10 or 15 years ... very very thick and sweet, and amazing, and cheep (comparatively) .... every time I go I hope to see it again .....

                  1. I loved the Drunken Ravioli. It was so cheap, like $3 or something. It was frozen ravioli and came with a little bag of sauce. It was sooo good.
