Trader Joe’s Soy Creamer Stays the Dairy-Free Course (DISCONTINUED for now …)

5

We believe Trader Joe’s was sourcing their creamer from Wildwood. Unfortunately, Wildwood stopped producing creamers and milks altogether (now they only make tofu and mayo products). And it looks like they’ve yet to find another manufacturer for Trader Joe’s Soy Creamer.

Silk Soy Creamer is similar (and still available). But Silk doesn’t use contain the controversial ingredient carrageenan, which tends to work well in creamers like TJ’s. Sunrich Barista Soymilk is another option. It is a commercial product, so it isn’t sold in stores, but can be bought in bulk online.

This product has come and gone over the years, but 2020 might have been it’s demise. We’re I know many people are hoping for a return, but production issues might have put an end to this beloved product. We’ll update if it returns!

Trader Joe’s Soy Creamer Stays the Dairy-Free Course

This review of Trader Joe’s Soy Creamer was shared with us by Alicia de los Reyes during her writing days with A Nice Cuppa.

While visiting some friends and drinking their coffee I discovered a lovely coffee mix-in: Trader Joe’s Soy Milk Creamer.  Usually I stay away from soy in my coffee, but I decided to try it.  Guess what?  Deliciousness.  Not soy-like at all.

It was quite sweet, though, and that’s what inspired me to try it in my other favorite morning beverage, English Breakfast tea.  Shazam!  I was a convert.  It reminded me of the kind of tea made with boiling leaves and milk and water in a big pot with about sixteen cups of sugar.  The tea was strong enough to hold up to the sweetness; herbal and more delicate black teas would taste like flavored milk with this stuff stirred in. Chai would be excellent.

TJ's Soy Creamer was the best

Rated 5 out of 5
April 8, 2021

Prior to using TJ’s Soy Creamer I was using one from Organic Valley. I believe it was very similar to TJ’s (I think it was even better) They stopped making it as well. It seems it’s hard to source organic soybeans? Is that the issue? I’m not using Califia Farms Oat milk barista and it’s not the same. I hope one day a good soy creamer comes back. I may have to make one myself.

The best soy milk creamer ever and they discontinued it. I’ve tried many many other brands and this is still THE BEST. So sad. I still cannot believe it.

Wait, what?!
TJ soy creamer is my favorite. When it disappeared from the shelfs last year I was told there was a problem with supplier. They said they were looking for a new one and planned to bring it back in the beginning of 2021.
Now it’s not gonna happen?!

We don’t know! Hopefully it comes back, but it’s truly up in the air.

Was so upset to hear this was discontinued. The only two creamers I like – Wildwood and TJs soy creamer are gone. I had no idea they were from the same manufacturer. No wonder! Thank you for the background. I had no idea the supplier stopped making these products all together. Just tragic. Please find a decent replacement. My coffee hasn’t been the same without it.

I am Devastated about the news that Trader Joe’s has discontinued my favorite product. I have used this creamer for years and love it. There are no substitutes. The new selection of non-dairy creamer today has coconut. I am allergic to coconut and it also tastes terrible.

I have been using TJ soy creamer for years. When a friend asked me what was the secret for good coffee, I said TJ soy creamer. Now I have learned it has been discontinued, along with other TJ favorites through the years. It saddens me. Please bring it back.

    Something has changed in the soy milk creamer. It no longer froths in my nespresso frothier and is not quite as sweet as before.

      • It’s been at my Trader Joe’s now for years. I guess they brought it back? I like it better than any other dairy-free creamer I’ve tried so far.
