0 136

I’m sensing an issue in the frozen pasta aisle…

Look, I’m a loyal and avid Trader Joe’s shopper, and I love nearly everything about this grocery store chain. But of course, even T.J’s makes mistakes. Here are some of the funniest mishaps and failures that Trader Joe’s shoppers have experienced.

1.

This guy who discovered the hard way that the illustration does not accurately represent the product.

2.

And this one who opened the box only to find the wrong flavor.

3.

This person who accidentally bought a cheese plate instead of a pre-made salad.

“My BBQ chicken salad was virtually all cheese, which might make it the perfect salad. The bag on the cutting board is just the cheese I removed from the salad.”

4.

And this one who discovered a cone-less ice cream cone.

This guy who realized there’s more to TJ’s seltzer than what meets the eye.

“PSA for inattentive people, TJ’s changed their red pepper flakes container to a flip top. So uh, don’t unscrew the whole top and shake it like you used to unless you want to end up with half a jar of red pepper in your food.”

9.

Yup, that was an issue.

10.

This fella who realized two very different TJ’s products look way too similar.

11.

And this one who realized the expiration date is probably not accurate.

12.

This person who found a surprise in the tinned seafood.

13.

This person who discovered an error in the pasta-to-sauce ratio .

“OMG, y’all. Check out my two different bags of ravioli bought on the same shopping trip. I opened the sauce heavy bag first and would have been devastated if I didn’t have a second.”

14.

Like….a pretty serious error.

15.

And this one, who got zero noodles whatsoever.

16.

OK, this sauce issue is becoming serious.


17.

And saddest of all, this mac ‘n’ cheese lover who was seriously disappointed.

“Was excited to try the Butternut Squash Mac and cheese. The worst part? I live 3 hours away from my nearest Trader Joe’s. 😅”

u/zchvns

18.

This person who discovered TJ’s pizza has a mind of its own.

19.

Or this shopper who chose a very bad day for a Trader Joe’s haul.

20.

This surprised pasta lover who found a lone tortellini in the mini ravioli bag.

21.

And this person, who discovered the expiration date simply doesn’t exist.

“My salmon expires on February 30th. Is 2021 a leap-leap year? 👀”
