Discontinued at Trader Joe's - July thru December 2012

Renewing for the second half of the year. I have not seen the summer season Meyer Lemon Cake Mix so far - not even sure they had it last year, since I had stockpiled some from 2010. Looks like it's extinct =-(

      Are you in the mid-Atlantic? A lot of things were gone last week due to inventory.

      1. re: noya

        I saw them at a NYC-area store yesterday.

        1. re: noya

          Yes, I saw those chips there today. Are they good? I have never had or considered them.

          1. re: noya

            Spotted these today at the Pittsburgh, PA store

          2. My TJ's employee friend told me the Everything Crackers have *not* been discontinued; they are backordered at the supplier. I hope she's right.

              I've also heard that the Bite Size Everything Crackers are back-ordered, both from employees in NYC and in Paramus. One employee told me that it's one of their most popular products. I hope that's true. Seems like they've been gone for a while. Supplier problems, perhaps?

              1. re: Rilke

                Thank you for that, because I grabbed 'the last box' at our store last week, and was afraid that they were gone forever.

                1. re: Rilke

                  Everything Crackers have returned!!

                  1. re: Rilke

                    They only very briefly, at least in the NYC and northern NJ areas. Then they were gone again. I haven't seen them in months. Did supplier problems kill this item? If so, then how depressing. I've had to switch to the long flat crackers in cellophane trays.

                    1. re: Ike

                      I haven't seen them in months either, and I no longer work at the store so I don't know the story. I miss them :-(

                      1. re: Rilke

                        I asked the employees when I went last week to Trader Joe's. They are still trying to find a source to produce the cracker and hope to see it soon. Not sure when though but they are trying since it is a best seller.

                  2. re: Rilke

                    I'm sure glad to hear that, I hope they are in my store (Oakland, CA) this afternoon.

                  3. Is mango lassi gone for good or just temporarily unavailable?

                      Lassi was discontinued in May.

                    2. Have not seen my TJ's beloved Lemon and Triple Ginger Snap Ice Cream, nor is it listed on TJ's website, which contains a complete listing of their frozen ice creams. Hope this is not a permanently discontinued item!!!

                        strange--my store had it last week. maybe your store hasnt been ordering it for some reason? ask at the captain's "altar".

                        1. re: chez cherie

                          It's back (lemon and triple ginger snap ice cream)...must have been a delay in shipment because I did not see it there the last time...thanks chez cherie

                        2. re: littleflower

                          Triple Ginger Lemon Ice Cream discontinued on 4/4/2013.

                          The Triple Ginger Lemon Ice Cream has been discontinued due to nationwide slow sales, and inventory is no longer available at our warehouses....I miss this one, too! I am sorry for the disappointment, as there are no plans for the return of this item. We also are contractually bound to a non-disclosure agreement for any product under our Trader Joe's Private Label and may not divulge our supplier.

                          I have shared your comments with our Product Steering Committee. I cannot guarantee an immediate outcome; however, we absolutely do take customer requests into account when we develop new products and revise, or bring back old ones!

                          Best regards,

                          Customer Relations

                            Noooooooooooo! I loved that ice cream - I know some people did not care for it but I thought it was really an original flavor you couldn't find anywhere else, plus I love lemon ice cream. Well, hope they replace it soon with another flavor just as good as that one.

                        3. I miss the old version of TJ's Shredded BBQ (used to be in tubs, found in the refrigerator section - already cooked - just heat and eat). TJ's carried this version back in 2006/2007, and the bbq sauce was milder and not quite so spicy compared to what they are now carrying in stock.
