Trader Joe's Frozen Macaroni & Cheese - Removed to be "Reformulated"?

zhelder | Aug 6, 2009 07:38 PM

I went shopping at the Trader Joe's in Westwood, NJ yesterday. I asked one of the clerks where the frozen macaroni and cheese was. He said they pulled the boxes and that it's being "reformulated"! HUH?!? I told the clerk it was the best frozen macaroni & cheese ever. He said he agreed, and didn't know what was going on.

Is this true? This would kill me. I love TJ's frozen macaroni and cheese. I bought the mac & cheese in the refrigerated case once and it was AWFUL - no cheese flavor and the pasta was very doughy.

I love Trader Joe's, but it seems like every time I find a product I love, they either discontinue it (sun dried tomato pesto, gummi fruits, and the best refrigerated bruschetta ever) or change the item and make it vastly inferior (the frozen carrot cake). What is going on here?
