Trader Joe's Pumpkin Ice Cream- Discontinued
I had been waiting for the Double Rainbow Pumpkin Ice Cream to arrive at my local (VA) TJs. When I asked a few weeks ago I was told the Pumpkin Ice Cream would be TJ's house brand but would be "just like Double Rainbow." Well today when the manager looked in the great computer he found to my shock and dismay... the item has been discontinued.
Last year I had purchased the last 6 pints and thought I had hidden 4 of them craftily behind the veggies only to find someone had excavated the freezer and found the motherload.
My husband helpfully suggested we go to Baskin Robbins or see if the Ben and Jerry's store has it... but I liked the Double Rainbow best. It has, to my taste the best combination of pumpkin flavor, spiciness and mouthfeel.
I suppose my cholesterol level should improve.
TJs was uncertain too about the fate of the seasonal peppermint marshmallows and JoJos (oreo-type cookies).
Yep, I was at the TJs Fairfax, VA store on Tuesday specifically for the pumpkin ice cream. I was told the same thing - they are no longer doing business with Double Rainbow. I then logged onto the Double Rainbow Ice Cream web site to find out where else their ice cream is sold. Instead of just giving you information on their website, when you hit 'retail locations', it gives you an email form for getting a response from corporate. I inquired but I haven't heard anything back yet.
Why don't they just list their retailers on their website instead of you having to contact their company and then waiting for a reply?
