Trader Joe's Vegetable Spring Rolls


There aren’t many frozen product caterogies that are almost as universally as disappointing as spring rolls and egg rolls. I’ve lost count of how many end up a soggy, claggy, unappealing mess. It comes as no surprise to me that one brand who have cracked the puzzle – are Trader Joe’s…
