I'm not a lover of Indian food (though I found I liked it more recently) but today TJ's was sampling these Masala Burgers (freezer section) - OMG, they are delish! I tried it with and without the Mango Chutney they were putting on it, I like it more without, but it's good with it as well if you like sweet.

I ended up buying a box!

The most unique product I've seen at Trader Joe's is found in the freezer section. They carry frozen (but fresh) garlic, parsley, and cilantro.... at our Trader Joe's, you'll find them at the farthest part of the freezer (from the front of the store).

These little cubes are about the size of a bullion cube, but pack a great flavor! And with about 24 cubes per package, at $1.99 a package, they are a super bargain.

On a whim, I tried Trader Joe's "True Thai" Tom Yam Soup (with mushroom spinach wontons) today - wow - this is probably the best store bought soup I've ever had (and cheap) - my wife and I go to Bangkok Thai on a regular basis - this TJ's soup is nearly on par with its equivalent at BT.

Thanks for the heads up!! That is one of my favorite things at Bangkok Thai- can't wait to try the Trader Joe's version:-).

I just tried that product a few days ago and was very impressed. It has a strong lemongrass flavor and the whole chili peppers seem almost fresh.

I bought the Tom Yam Soup yesterday during my TJ run and had it for dinner tonight. WOW!!!!! I'm going to stock up on 4 or 5 to put in the freezer. I used all of the spice packet and it had quite a zing but I like spicy. This is a real winner. Thanks y'all!

I think so but I can't say with complete certainty. There was another Thai soup because I remember having to read to make sure I was getting the one folks had described here.
