Ginger Turmeric Granola

When @traderjoestobediscontinued announced the end of the Ginger Turmeric Granola, most commenters reacted with disbelief.

Inside the package contained rolled oats, coconut pieces, and candied ginger. According to Trader Joe's official website, you can "Eat it out of hand. Enjoy it in a bowl … or, layer it with frozen mango purée and Greek Yogurt for a golden parfait." The granola used to retail for $3.49, and if you ask the chain, "For this price, you really can't granola wrong …"

Pub Cheese

On Oct. 13 @traderjoestobediscontinued shared that "The Blue Cheese Pub Cheddar is soon to be discontinued." Often paired with crackers or celery, the spread will no longer be available to shoppers soon. Fans are devastated. One Instagram user even expressed that " … now it's personal."

"I think the flavors mix really well!" stated Reddit user @SimplyBohemian, who enjoyed the blue cheese taste back when it was still on shelves. While the plain pub cheese flavor is a crowd favorite for those in this thread, they noted that the spread was "Much more blue initially and finishes stronger on the cheddar."

The spread contains a "spicy kick" that, according to the chain's website, is made with " … ancho chile pepper powder and chipotle pepper powder for a spicy kick, our supplier also folds a bit of lime juice."

The spread can be added to "hamburger buns or hot dogs,… crisp coleslaw, drizzle on fish tacos … or grilled corn," but only for a little while longer before it's gone for the winter.
