I find it about 4/5 as hot as the Rooster Sriracha with a little more garlic flavor aaron.
Hey JD, speaking of Boboli pizza. . . did you notice we now carry premade organic pizza crusts in our frozen aisle?
I was pretty skeptical when they arrived, but truly do think they are good.
Please remember that I am a TJs employee, not trying to trick anyone into shopping there though.
I'll always shoot you straight on stuff. (Just like I do in the store)
There are plenty of items I can't stand and/or have had their ingredients cheapened over the years and have lost quality.

I dunno...it is definitely less hot than standard Sricha...but I don't do jalapenos so i am not sure where that puts your tolerance. I would place it in the same weight class as the Del Taco Inferno or Taco Bell Fire sauces if that gives you a range to work with. Like Noble pointed out, they bring more flavor by hitting the garlic a little harder...but it still has some heat. If you are looking for flavor I recommend this over the big rooster. If it helps, the heat from TJ's sricha is a quick hit unlike the slow...post taste burn that normal sricha brings. A slap in the face as opposed to a kick in the bawls. Funny thing, Tj's version seems to activate my heartburn more...so if that's a concern, you have been warned.

Brother, your non partisan-ship, like most Tj employees, is already noted. If you are new to this thread, I vouch for the man...never steered me wrong. Those pizza crusts you speak of...are those the dough ones, with 'some assembly required'? Or do you guys now have boboli type pre flattened crusts?

NS - What's the read on the gluten free NGB beer? I've heard mixed bag, love it or hate it. Personally, I like it a lot. Way better than Redbridge. But, not as tasty as Bards.
And when are you or are you going to carry the carnitas tacos again?

You just thaw them out at room temp for about 15-20 minutes and go.

I think the NGB is way better than I expected when I tried it. It kinda has a Belgian yeast thing going on.

Is it a fresh of frozen item? Do you mean the Mini-Tacos in frozen? Those are returning in the next couple months.
If it's a fresh item, I have no idea. Hahahaha, one more reason for us Chicagoans to envy SoCal.

P.S. I posted that jpg via the mobile app. Don't click on it if you're bandwidth frugal.

Tried the soy chorizo. Ok, let's get this out of the way, vegetarian option sausage casings...well, they suck. The Sausage-Less Sausage is good, but the skin is almost non-existant, breaks with a harsh thought. On the soy chorizo, unless you use a straight razor, all cutting accomplishes is to squeeze the filling out of the casing. That's not a bad thing. After removing the casing I took the ground up filling and panfried with some egg whites and a little bit of oil to nice results. The other half I am just gonna split down the middle and empty when I use it. The meat is strongly seasoned and moderately spicy. Thumbs up as a ground meat substitute, not so much as a sausage.

Trader Jose Beer
Dark Blend Coffee
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Joe Joe's Ice Cream
Pita Chips and Hummus
Just to name a few, my wife and I love Trader Joe's, I work at Ralphs and do all my shopping at Trader Joes, and yes the union would crucify me for this.
