Tom Yum Soup

Trader Joe's Tom Yam Soup

While browsing through the frozen foods section at Trader Joe’s, I cam across today’s Fabulous Food Find…their Tom Yam Soup. If you aren’t familiar with this soup (also called Tom Yum Gai Soup, Tom Yum Kai Soup), it’s a traditional Thai soup made with coconut milk, lemongrass, various vegetable and Thai spices and is characterized by its distinct hot and sour flavors. Some variations are made with shrimp or chicken. The Trader Joe’s version is made without meat or any meat products, so it’s a great Weight Watchers vegetarian soup idea, too. It’s made with spinach and mushroom wontons which were SO AMAZINGLY more tasty than I anticipated! And the broth is full of the Thai flavors I adore. The spices all come in their own little packet, so you can add or as much or as little as you’d like to control the heat. Wanna learn more? Keep reading!!

Trader Joe’s Tom Yam Soup with Spinach Mushroom Wontons

While reading through the ingredients list, I was thrilled to see that it’s made with all natural ingredients…no preservatives or weird things that I can’t pronounce. And though the nutritional stats aren’t super low, the entire package is 1 serving, so you can eat the whole thing for 6 Points. It’s now become one of my favorite go to frozen foods when I need a quick meal that I can toss in the microwave and have ready in 5 minutes. I have 3 of these babies in the freezer!! It’s also a great Thai food craving satisfier — which is key, because having this on hand prevents me from running to my fave Thai restaurant and blowing a week’s worth of Points on one meal. Seriously, I may have to marry the person behind Trader Joe’s.

  1. I join the admiration for this delightful soup. Unfortunately, Trader Joe’s decided to discontinue the sale, they say “due to low sale”! I can’t believe this, I always bought 10 packs at ones. And I know more consumers who are very disappointed with the decision. Hope the store chain will change their mind and get Thai Tom-Yum soup back. PLEASE!!!!

    • I too purchase 10-12 packs at a time, I just adore the soup and was deeply saddened to hear TJ’s would no longer carry it. We do have the chance to bring it back by hopping on Trader Joes website. There is a ‘contact us’ where we can write to them to please bring the soup back into their stores. I have written to TJ’s several times under different email addresses hoping to try to convince them of their error in discontinuing the Tom Yam Soup. The more people write or email in, the better chance we have in convincing them to bring it back. Please help in this petition!
