The Vegan Trader Joe's Item The Internet Won't Stop Talking About

Food - News

Trader Joe's is famous for releasing new items every month — and in some cases, even every week. So far the July lineup has included everything from tri-colored ice pops and horchata ice cream to the unexpected cheddar chicken sausages and truffle-flavored barbecue sauce.

Sitting among this array of summery new products are also a few vegan offerings like TJ's new vegan bread option, made with plant-based alternatives to eggs, as well as their hugely popular Korean Beefless Bulgogi, made from plant-based bulgogi-style strips flavored with sweet and savory soy sauce.

With reviews like, "How many boxes of beefless bulgogi do I need to purchase to prevent it from being discontinued?" and "One of the best meat substitutes I have tried," it's easy to see why it's gaining popularity. However, people are warning that the buzzy item might not be available at all stores just yet or could even be sold out, so it might be best to call your store first.
