trader joe's "fresh summer rolls" -- don't go there!

zip. zero. zilch. nada.

that is the description of the flavors of trader joe's new product, "fresh summer rolls."

the shrimp, the cellophane noodles, the cilantro (how can cilantro not have any flavor?!) and the rice wrapper were all one big package (actually two packages) of dry, flavorless BLAH. even the texture of the shrimp and noodles was plastic-y. plus, the wrapper was hard on the side against the package.

the supplied dipping sauce was a generic, sickly sweet "chili-garlic" syrupy business.

do not go there. trust me.

<dang it! i *knew* i should've just made some myself!>
