Sorry to have to say it, but “gross” is the only way to describe this sushi. Just don’t do it. Trust me.

Gooey and….not good!

I agree, gross. Pretty bad. Skip it, there is sooo much other good stuff there.

How can you call this sushi? It’s basically a giant solid square of rice. No individual grain of rice can be found. I wish I could draw a picture of the rice blob. Now rice is THE most important part of sushi, so if you get it wrong the rest is trash. Don’t buy this from TJ’s! I’m sure you can find something else so you’re not wasting your money.

I think the shrimp tempura crunch sushi was very good for being from a grocery store . I like it a lot

I whole-heartedly disagree with all of you sushi snobs! These are flavorful little morsels accompanied by two delicious sauces and crunchy tidbits. Makes a delightful light lunch or snack at a bargain price.

For the price and convenience it’s great.. The sauces are perfect.

The worst “sushi” I’ve had in my life. How you mess up cooked rice, I do not know. It’s solid and can be thrown easily at someone without losing shape. I love spicy mayo, but I didn’t know what the Dynamite Sauce is supposed to be. The only edible parts are the fillings inside, which, didn’t really taste like shrimp tempura. The sweet sauce and tempura is okay. I guess I shouldn’t trust white people, particularly from Trader Joe’s, with sushi.

totally terrible. the rice is gummy, the crab is so mushy, and the shrimp is cold and chewy. ugh, gross! stay away, instead, buy one of their pre-made salads or something. jeez 🙁 so dissapointing. that was probably the worst sushi in my life!`

Easily the worst item I’ve ever purchased at Joe’s. Far from being a “sushi snob,” I’m actually fine with some supermarket sushi—even Safeway/Vons does a take on this general theme that I find perfectly edible—but these nasty little mush bombs don’t deserve the Joe’s branding, and trying to redeem them with the admittedly tasty dipping sauces is like putting lipstick on a pig. Run away!

I’m not sure I would really classify this as sushi. If you think of it more as a shrimp/crab/rice thing, it’s decent for the price. The problem is the rice is VERY compacted, so it’s like one big solid ring of “rice” with the shrimp and crab. Obviously the tempura does not retain its cirspiness (hello fridge) but the separate crispy bits are a nice touch. The sauces are both yummy, if untraditional. Ultimately, it scratches the itch for sushi without the crazy price tag. Hey, sometimes you want a filet mignon, and sometimes you want a Big Mac.
Not that bad
