    They've got the red and green in Minnesota. No yellow yet.

      I don't think they're bringing the yellow back, as before they discontinued the pouches, it was only red and green available.

      I'm just glad they're back and I could actually eat the pouches I had been hoarding without a massive sense of loss washing over me. LOL

      Thanks - I'd stopped hoping/ looking, but I just found both green and red at the Rockridge (Oakland) store. Yay!

        Still as good as ever, and a bargain at 1.49 - but, wow, 1240 mg sodium in the red curry and 1520 in the green.

        I just want to say thanks to you and the other Chowhounds who are also fans of this product for "watching" it here and letting us know of the return. I wish I'd checked back here sooner, but oh well...got some last week! It was on the bottom shelf, easy to miss if one weren't looking.

          Based on this thread, I bought one each of the green and red a couple of months ago, and just got around to trying the green today. I guess I've become a wuss, spice-wise, because although it was tasty, that was almost too spicy for me. Since the red says "Hot" on it, it's going back. Too bad about no more yellow, as I love Thai yellow curries.

            spice/heat tolerance is so subjective, plus i'm beginning to think there's no rhyme or reason to the way TJ's determines & categorizes spice levels for their products. yesterday they were handing out samples of the Green Papaya Salad at my local TJ's, and the demonstrator kept warning everyone "it's spicy! it's very spicy!" meanwhile i double-checked the package to be sure he was sampling the right product, because i could *swear* there was no chili in what i ate - even a toddler wouldn't have thought it was spicy. in fact, there was a little girl who couldn't have be more than 3 or 4 YO next to me with her mother, and the child happily scarfed down two samples without batting an eye.
