My husband and I are suckers for having appetizers in the place of dinner. However, this box became just my dinner. I didn't want to share these. Now, don't judge me to harshly when I say, I like Chinese food better cold rather than fresh out of the takeout container. And there is a connection here.
I made these per the directions. Best of all, my husband wasn't home when I had them. Therefore, there was no need to share.
Often times, if we get takeout, he will order an egg roll, but I like the deep fried spring rolls better.
If you like that crispy fried, cabbage-y, mushroom-y, filled wonton, then you are in luck with these. And yes, this had the familiar soy and ginger flavors.
These are everything you like in a spring roll filling, but in a really fun shape. The top of the pouch is sturdy enough to become a handle.
The shape of these almost gives you a nice handle to dip these in a sauce. While a sauce is pictured on the box, none is present in this box.
While the sauce on the box looks like it is a soy sauce or even Trader Joe's Gyoza Dipping Sauce, I had mine with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce and I loved the pairing.
And yes, these were good warm, but oddly I enjoyed the leftover serving the next day. Straight from the refrigerator. It was good.
For $3.49 for about a dozen pouches these were cheaper than ordering from a local restaurant.
Would I buy this again? Yes, Trader Joe's Crispy Vegetable Pouches were good. I just wish they weren't seasonal. This would make a nice addition to the

Trader Joe's Crispy Vegetable Pouches
A new but seasonal wonton that is just a differently shaped spring roll.
- Wontons that are done well
- I actually liked these ice cold rather than hot out of the oven (don't judge me)
- Pair well with a variety of sauces
- Seasonal, I was wishing these weren't.
