    The ginger candies in it are delicious and full of flavor.

  2. Jaye

    Love this sweet and spicy treat!

  3. Kay

    It tastes good, but make sure you really like ginger cause the ginger bits are kinda strong! Also, these TJs cereals often come all broken up into sand unfortunately

    Im a loyal regular customer. Howeve, re: this cereal:
    So sad that there is load of poisonous sugar in this delicious tasting cereal.
    Also canola oil used in this(and a ton of ur other products) is horrible for our health.(Google how they make canola oil).
    Trader Joe’s people who are in charge of approving the products really need to be spoken to. We rather pay a little more money not to eat loads of poisonous sugar in what is supposed to be a healthy product.
    This is also not organic. So who knows what chemicals were sprayed on it. You have sophisticated customers who love a lot of your products. I buy tons of your products since you opened here in sarasota fl… But this one needs help. Make this cereal organic with a better oil, and loads less sugar and I’ll definitely buy a load of this cereal. P.S. Get rid of sunflower and canola oils and I’ll buy many other products too. Unfortunately I have to go to other stores to buy 1/4 items on my list bc of the poisonous ingredients in some of your supposed to be healthy products. Also if you spend the money to put the non-gmo seal label on your products instead of that blanket statement on your website, oh would I buy so many more items. By skimping on this one little aspect, you’re losing so much money. My friends and I don’t go near items without that label.
    The more you care for your customers, the faster you’ll remove the poison and consider the rest of this note. And you’ll make even more money and sleep much better at night.
    On a lighter note, you do have a lot of good products, so that’s a good thing.
    Good day.

    I like this cereal.

  6. Mark

    The cereal is really good – the ginger is prominent (so you’d better like ginger). But as another person mentioned, there is way too much sugar in this ‘nothing but the clusters’ cereal (all of these cereals have way too much sugar).

  7. je

    My favorite cereal in the whole world!

  8. DMC

    Awesome cereal with a unique flavor that I haven’t been able to find in any other product or brand. Always gets added to my cart when I make a trip to Trader Joe’s. Frankly I hope that TJ’s never listens to the the nut jobs like the reviewer “Sky” who seems like the kind of person to shove one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s yoni eggs up her twat… go munch on some broccoli and shut up about “sugar poison.”

  9. P Hansen

    Ginger/almond granola cereal so good and something I enjoy most every day. Why are you discontinuing it???

  10. Joann Moser

    So upset it is being discontinued!

  11. Mary L.

    I’ve been a big fan of this granola for the past 20 some years. Before TJ’s opened in GA, I had friends from CA send it to me. Another product that would be so Sadful if you discontinued it

  12. JOANNA E.

    Best cereal in the WORLD. This is the absolute most delicious food I’ve eaten in my whole life. The sweetness is just right; the crunchiness is perfect, and most importantly the GINGER: you can *really* taste it. I eat it for breakfast AND dessert. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Rbt

    This is my primary reason for going to TJ’s. If it’s really discontinued, I don’t know when I’ll return. Love to know more about how these decisions are made.

  14. klee

    noooOOOOOOOO PPPLLleeeezzsay it’s coming back!!! omg please!!

  15. Selina

    Sooooooooo sad that I had it the first time this past weekend. Only to go to the store to stock up and find out it’s discontinued. Not sure why. I’m not a cereal eater, but going to make an exception. Bring it back, pleaaasssee.

  16. Anonymous

    I am so upset that this cereal is discontinued. I don’t understand why since the cereal has been selling so well!!!

  17. jg

    I have eaten this cereal (with a sprinkling of blueberries) for breakfast every day for years – please reconsider discontinuing it!

  18. Jane

    Went to get some more of my favorite cereal and learned it has been discontinued! What?!!! This is THE BEST cereal, not only at Trader Joes, but anywhere. So incredibly disappointed! Please reconsider reinstating this delicious cereal.

  19. WAK

    Agree, please don’t discontinue this product; my favorite cereal; eat it 3-5 times per week for years.

  20. Kathie w.

    I am heartbroken!! I drive a half an hour to my closest trader Joe’s and this cereal is one of the reasons. A handful over yogurt and fruit is one of my favorite breakfasts!! In googling the product, i see it has gone black market on ebay already for as much as 14.00 a box. This should be saying something to TJs!!! Im just saying…waaaaaaaaaa!!!

  21. David Winter

    The best cereal I have ever eaten. I’m 83, and the rude, incoherent comments of reviewer “Sky” fall flat in the face of my robust health.
    Please bring it back!

  22. Polly Ewald

    I have stopped shopping at Trader Joe’s now that my favorite cereal and a staple of my diet has been discontinued despite it always being low in stock in the Richmond, VA area. I am tired of relying on products that are pulled without notice. This was a bad decision and I hope that corporate reconsiders.

  23. Lonna Speer

    PLEASE PLEASE re-instate Ginger Clusters cereal. If I’d known it was going to be discontinued (according to my store manger), I would have put in a supply to last me the rest of my life. It’s my favorite in the whole world. The 5 stars are for the product, not for TJs for DC’ing it.

  24. Lisa

    This is literally the only product that I specifically go to Trader Joe’s to get. I do like other products there and buy them while I am at the store. If this cereal is no longer available, I probably won’t bother going there much at all. This is not a boycott or anything…just don’t see myself going out of my way to shop there without my ginger crack cereal.

  25. Murali

    I don’t usually write reviews. Writing here hoping product marketing and merchandising team get one more voice if dissent. Ginger Almond Cashew cereal has been a staple breakfast at our home for several years. Can’t believe it isn’t a top seller. Why discontinue?

  26. RL

    Best cereal ever, should not be discontinued. Like other commenters said, I specifically go to T.J. for this and may not otherwise. Bought the maple pecan instead and it just does not compare. Bring it back!

  27. Mike Ferrero

    This is our favorite cereal. Can’t believe it’s been discontinued. Is a primary reason for going to TJ’s.

  28. Alan

    Love it, but now it’s gone — really? I found a few boxes on Amazon. Now I’m making my own by adding organic crystallized ginger from Mom’s Organic Market to your Maple Pecan clusters.

  29. Michele Serchuk

    Nooooo, it’s discontinued! This has been my breakfast staple since … I can’t even tell you how long. At least a decade or more. I go to TJs sometimes just to get it. Bring it back, pleeeeeeeease!!! I tried the other clusters. Meh, lame.

  30. Anne

    Please, please don’t discontinue this! One by one my reasons for going to Trader Joes are disappearing. First the Ginger Turmeric Granola, now this??? Its the only cereal I eat!

  31. Phil

    this cereal is my reward for eating other cereal during the week. yes it’s full of sugar but I don’t care. I have one box left so now it’s down to once a month. so sorry to see this go. it’s the only cereal i buy at trader joes. I hope they will reveal the manufacturer and/or the recipe.

  32. Julie

    Ditto everyone’s comments re ginger almond clusters. So disappointed. One of the main reasons I shopped TJ’s

  33. Susan van Houten

    So sad that the Ginger/Almond flavor has been discontinued. As many others have noted it’s the main reason I go to Trader Joe’s. PLEASE bring it back.

  34. Jean Abbe

    I really miss this cereal. I have been eating it for years, just a little, on Trader Joe’s Honey Greek Yogurt. Tlhe maple kind isn’t bad, but I love the ginger.


    I absolutely LOVE this cereal and have been eating it for many years now. Went to get more yesterday only to be told it had been DISCONTINUED!!! SO BUMMED over this. It was a great seller as evidenced by how quickly the stock emptied each time. I WISH THEY WOULD BRING IT BACK!!! They did the same thing to my favorite lg. tub yogurt and now only sell it in single serve-the greek non-fat vanilla with the purple label…

    This has been a go to breakfast for me for decades! Why? Have the ingredients become cost prohibitive? The replacement flavors taste like kid cereals. Bring it back! You have noticed that your clientele is mostly adults with a different palate than kiddies looking for the next sugar rush delivered with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.

  37. Seriously?

    Could a TJ spokesperson please explain the decision to discontinue? This really is an iconic cereal. I had promised a box as a wedding gift. I had introduced my niece to this. We share a love of this cereal – and an implicit deprecation of our mild addictions to the stuff. Wouldn’t mind a bit less sugar. Maple pecan is great also, but it needs to be alternated with Ginger Almond & Cashew. Can make a happy mouth on any given day.

  38. Ashley Kraft

    I picked some up about a month ago, and loved it! Went back last week and it was gone so I decided to look it up on the site to find out it is discontinued , please bring it back!

  39. Allison

    Huge Disappointment. Tried another flavor, but it was no good. Will have to make my own.

  40. Amy

    This has been one of my favorite cereals for years. I’m so disappointed that it has been discontinued. It seems like every time I go to Trader Joe’s, another one of my favorites is missing, but this is the worst one so far. I’m not sure I’ll continue to shop at Trader Joe’s – it’s not worth the extra drive when they don’t have what I want.

  41. Tina

    Please bring this product back…it is so good and always in demand, why would you discontinue it!

  42. Gail

    My favorite cereal because it is different from all the other same old cereals. Just like many of the customers, we would go to TJs, (2 in CT abt 20 miles from us) to stock up on this cereal and other products that we love. Those other products I can get closer to home, so why go 20 miles ? Please bring back the Ginger granola.

  43. Jason

    As MANY others have said and feel, PLEASE BRING THIS CEREAL BACK!!! Don’t listen to the people talking about how healthy it may or may not be. Some of us know how to workout and take care of ourselves and look forward to treats like this! Let them eat plain cornflakes and not this if that’s how they feel. This is seriously upsetting and was one of the ONLY reasons I ever shopped at TJ’s. I probably will no longer shop here if not returned.

  44. DDL

    This is the best cereal i have seen in ages. I would always buy two boxes, when it was available as it seemed to sell out quickly. Based on the comments above, I am surprised it is being discontinued. I would occasionally stop at the local TJ’s just to see if they had it! PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!

  45. Annie H.

    This cereal is a favorite with my family and we always bought several boxes. In the last months I thought maybe there was a temporary supply problem when I wasn’t seeing it until yesterday when they told me at the store that it is discontinued. Is this a decision that could be reconsidered?

  46. MaryLou Graham

    Absolutely my favorite cereal/granola. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring it back. The vanilla and almond are NOT substitutes. I have been loving this seral for over 20 years.

  47. Amy S.

    This was my favorite cereal anywhere, ever, and I got the rest of my family hooked on it too. I’ve tried your maple and vanilla varieties, and I agree with several other reviewers that the ginger cashew is far and away the best. Honestly, it would just depress me to try to replace it with something else I know I won’t like as well. I had stocked up months ago and recently finished my last box; I was so disheartened today having learned it was no longer being carried at all that I left my local Trader Joe’s empty-handed. I join my voice with everyone else’s above to suggest that you bring it back. Fans of ginger adore it, and I have never tasted its equal anywhere. There are no acceptable substitutes. It was one of a kind.
