Spinach and Tofu Egg Roll Lovers Unite!

Back in January I reviewed one of my favorite Trader Joe's products for Tuesday's Tasting, Trader Ming's Vegetarian Spinach and Tofu Egg Rolls. Then shortly after I learned that Trader Joe's discontinued the product because of lagging sales. I was devastated, and starting hearing from others that were too.

One of my readers suggested an email campaign in response to my announcement that the egg rolls had been discontinued. I've decided to take it one step further. I am organizing a grassroots campaign to make Trader Joe's aware of the following that Trader Ming's Vegetarian Egg Rolls had while at the same time trying to persuade them to start producing and stocking the egg rolls once again.

I encourage you to join me in this effort. Please visit and join me in my crusade. Leave a comment there and let me know you've joined, and PLEASE, send a note to Trader Joe's letting them know you love and miss the egg rolls and you'd like to see them brought back to the stores.

In the words of the late President Nixon: "If you take no risks, you will suffer no defeats. But if you take no risks, you win no victories."


  1. it has been a while since you posted this..I still dream about these delic gems--any way to get them--anywhere???

  2. Hi Anonymous, I strongly believe that Health is Wealth was the producer of the spinach and tofu egg rolls for Trader Joe's private label. However it now seems that Health is Wealth has also discontinued their [identical] version of the egg roll. What a bummer.
