Trader Joe's smoked trout in a can

Does anyone have any idea if Trader Joe's still has the smoked trout in a can? I have checked a few different stores in the Boston area and they are all out..

  1. TJ's selection rotates at an alarming rate. This could be another R.I.P. item you won't see again. I learned my lesson when they ditched the soy butter I loved. Now I stock up if I see something I like.

    1. I was just at TJs in Framingham Sat and totally forgot to get the smoked trout (I usually buy about 6 cans at a time). However the time before that they had it. Please don't tell me they're getting rid of it! I love that stuff!

      1. The trout is "temporarily out of stock," so you won't find it in any stores for a while. The good news is that it isn't discontinued, but the bad news is that it might be a few weeks before it comes back.

          Great... thank you so much!! I will just keep checking back with my local store. Thank you all for your comments. :)

        2. If this is the smoked trout that comes in a sardine-like tin, there's decent stock of it at the Fresh Pond TJ's as of this morning.

            Thanks Boston_Otter!!! I went to Fresh Pond TJs Saturday morning and I am good to go. :) Thank you again.

          2. What does the can look like? I've never noticed this product. I could use an alternative to plain old tuna or kippered herring in a can. Is it packed in oil or water?

              It looks just like a sardine can and is located right near the tuna. It is packed in oil
