I feel the same, I don't mind having a few processed foods in the house, but so many of them have additives that just don't need to be there, especially when places like TJ's carries similar products without the obnoxious additives, and they often taste just as good or better!

Are they breaded frozen rounds? That would make a nice shortcut for eggplant parm.

But--it is so easy to make breaded rounds of eggplant--I do mine in the oven and package them in ziplocks--I always have eggplant ready for eggplant parm. What the heck is Trader Joe's anyway?

I'm going to look for those, they would be perfect for making a one-serving batch. Shrek won't eat eggplant, but I love it. Would be a good Bento dish!

I am not happy with them with regard to eggplant because they used to carry a frozen eggplant parmesan made out of steamed eggplant with no breading on it. Since I am gluten free I bought it all the time and loved it for a nice side dish in a pinch. They no longer carry it and all they have are the breaded slices.

I have noticed that TJ has cut out a lot of things along the way and streamlined their inventory. I buy less there than I used to because of it.

Glad to see TJ's continuing to expand. I know that lots of real estate developers would love to have a TJ in their shopping centers.
I'm lucky to have 5 TJ's all within a 10 mile radius here.
