  1. Brendan Glascock

    So much cheaper than normal lox and just as good. In fact, the chunks are perfect for putting on crackers!

  2. TomZ

    Excellent product And good flavor. Great with cream cheese and capers which we bought at Trader Joe’s.

  3. Tom

    Excellent as good as any lox your going to get. we put them on water crackers with capers and cream cheese.

  4. Sophia Unger

    Too salty

  5. Skylar Kang

    good price and taste 85% the same, although the texture in some parts are more “fiber-y” and weird than regular lox. but i would say most of the salmon is the same. Flavor is not as deep, you kinda just get the salty flavor more

  6. Anonymous

    Salty, chewy, fishy and had bones

  7. Ty

    I took one bite and felt that the pieces were glued together with transglutaminate. I double checked the package to be sure and it is not listed under ingredients (it is not required to be listed but should be). Can you (TD) confirm wether this product uses transglutaminate?

  8. Tlaw

    Fishy, gummy and bad texture. Definitely worth spending more for the better pieces.

    Would not buy again (and throw most of it away).

  9. Oliver

    There was hardly any salmon in the package. HUGE waste of 12$.

  10. Adam

    Thought these were great – however my trader joe’s stopped stocking them, at least for the moment. They appear in their system as “not orderable.”

  11. chezron

    This is great that you can still get wild caught smoked salmon.

  12. Tamara66

    The price is great and so is the taste and value. I love that it consists of very small portions/pieces that I may use for sandwiches or eat with baked potatoes or veggies. The product stays fresh for a long time in the refrigerator. I feel lucky when I see it in TJ because it sells fast!

  13. Angie

    Tasted strongly of plastic, and nothing I did could negate it. I even tried a stir-fry and a kimchi-jigae, but neither could overpower the taste of plastic.

  14. Giovanna

    I just hurt my mouth with a Bone. I think should say that it contains them in its packaging since it is very dangerous. I only felt it in my mouth, but what if it goes to your throat?

    This “ends and pieces” offering from TJ is an amazing steal. The potential for bones are a given when eating any bone fish from any source. The value is great for wild sockeye salmon. As someone with a whole ton of canned seafood experience, this is a luxurious and healthy option at a value-based price. The flavor is honest and simple; cured and cold smoked salmon. Don’t believe the whiners, you should drop this in your cart at least once a week for your health. This is a real fish product which absolutely includes some bones; don’t eat the bones. If you’re looking for a product that is kid friendly right out of the package, I’d suggest some TJ blueberries. I wish TJ would expand their cured and smoked fish offerings into more local selections like walleye, perch, pike, and bluegill. Yet another value based honest offering from Trader Joe’s; thanks, TJ! Keep ‘em Comin’!

    These were really great but my last few packages have had a lot of stringy pieces that aren’t really chewable. Yuck. And fishing through it with my fingers to remove them is messy and I lose maybe a quarter of a package.

  17. Judy Deertrack

    Excellent product, inexpensive, great addition to salads, cream cheese dip, bagels, so many uses!

    tastes like something, whatever it is it’s not good. not worth it at half the price. Gummy…pasty…a real miss by TJs
