I received an email a few days ago from someone who I can only guess read my recent posting on Trader Joe's (Trader Ming's) Vegetarian Spinach and Tofu Egg Rolls. The writer informed me that her local Trader Joe's in Massachusetts informed her that they will no longer be carrying the spinach and tofu egg rolls, and that they've sold out of their remaining stock.
Not wanting to believe her, not wanting to believe that one of my favorite items from TJ's freezer case may no longer be available, I had to see for myself. On my way home from work just an hour ago, I stopped into my local Trader Joe's. I went to the freezer case where the spinach and tofu egg rolls are usually chilling out. They were not there. I asked one of the TJ's mates, "I heard a rumor that the spinach and tofu egg rolls have been discontinued, is it true???" I was informed that it's no rumor, the sales were not good and they will no longer be carrying them, AND they have none left.
Oh my. I'm in shock. I've been buying these for at least the last seven years. I only have half a package left in my freezer. This is insane. I'm going to write to Trader Joe right now, this can't be happening!
