Trader Joe's Holiday Items Are Selling Out Fast, Frustrating Customers

The 2023 Christmas season is barely beginning, but some Trader Joe's buyers are already overwhelmed. Customers are complaining on social media that the shop is selling out of some of its most anticipated Christmas products weeks after they arrived.

This week, a Trader Joe's fan complained on Reddit that their local shop had ceased offering Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Kettle Chips and Pumpkin Brioche Twist. 

Apparently, this buyer isn't the only one who's noticed a lack of seasonal favorites. Redditors with identical concerns swamped the thread.

Trader Joe's Holiday Items Are Selling Out Fast, Frustrating Customers

Pumpkin Pie Spice, a holiday baking favorite, is already in limited supply at Trader Joe's. One Redditor called the spice combination "top tier" and said their shop is out for the season.

Redditors also report that Thanksgiving Stuffing Seasoned Popcorn, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Ravioli, and Butternut Squash Lasagna have sold out at several places.

"Two or three weeks ago when the Christmas holiday items started showing up at my location a cashier told me they sold out of some holiday items two days after they arrived," a client said.

Trader Joe's doesn't sell out an item at all locations simply because one store does. The fact that many buyers are having problems obtaining their favorite goods so early in the Christmas season suggests that the problem is widespread.

Others commented that smaller retailers may not be able to order as much product owing to space constraints. 

Whatever the reason, customers should add their favorite limited-edition goods to their carts when they see them. "Things move swiftly nowadays. Grab it if you love it "shopper wrote.
