But why?

Why Trader Joe’s Discontinues Popular Items

It’s so hard to know why TJ’s discontinues so many popular products. Some TJ’s shoppers have turned it into a running joke that as soon as you start loving a TJ’s product, it’s bound to disappear. (I wrote a whole article about the TJ’s products disappearing in 2023 here.)
