    Honestly, was hesistant at first because I’m very particular about my spring rolls. But they’re not that bad. Cabbage, Carrots, noodles and pork? What else is there more to ask for? Im used to spending 7-9 dollars for spring rolls because im in the city but these are huge and cost around $4.79

    You can bake em or deep fry em. Delicious either way.

    I was surprised because sometimes flavors can be too overpowering but it was a nice balance, the vegetables still had a decent amount of crunch. I used an air fryer and had to flip mine so that it would not get too brown. I tried it with and without some hot sauce and preferred it with the hot sauce.

    Amazing spring roll! Wasn’t sure if Kalua Pork would be work, but was seriously delicious. Egg roll crisped up nicely in the oven and the flavors were a happy blend of Hawaiian meets Chinese. Also off the charts on the price to quality ratio. Excited to try their chicken egg rolls next round.

    This is a must try!!! Generous amount of filling with the perfect crunch! It’s the best frozen spring roll I’ve tried. I used the toaster oven without any oil to bake this and it came out perfectly crunchy and not greasy. It has a hint of sweet but not overpowering with a slight smoky taste and the added vegetables with cellophane noodles makes it the perfect combination. Flavor is great that no dipping sauce is needed. This is perfect for snack time or to serve at gatherings. I hope this will be a regular item and not just seasonal. I already purchased 10 boxes of the kahlua spring rolls! Thank you TJ!!

    I like smoked foods but the rolls are like eating a camp fire. I also love spring rolls but not these. Too much smoke for my taste. It overwhelms everything. Very oily. Nice crispy outer shell and stuffed with ingredients

    I agree with the other commenter, these could be SO good, if it wasn’t for how forward the smoke flavor was. The texture of the spring roll wrapper is the perfect light and crispy texture, it’s perfectly satisfying. But the inside is a bit too mushy, I wish that the texture was a bit more firm with maybe a bit more meat. But even that isn’t terrible- but the smoke flavor really is a lot- it’s just too much. A little smokiness is fine, but this is like literally eating a smoke flavored spring roll. It kind of ruins what would be really good other flavors.

    Maybe I’m sensitive to fake smoke flavor, but these tasted to me how burning tires smell. The chemical taste in the filling was overpowering and I couldn’t even finish the first one.

    I love TJ’s. I do almost all my grocery shopping at TJ’s, and I am a former Crew Member. But the Kalua Pork rolls are the single worst TJ’s product I have ever tried. The flavorless filling had such a slimy texture I ate only half of one roll, then threw the rest in the garbage. I suppose it is possible the package I purchased was some kind of manufacturer mistake, but I don’t think so. I suggest avoiding this product (I am going to ask for a refund – first time in years).
