Dude!!!  Trader Joe's Bollywood Popcorn is now selling for .99!!!!!

PRICE NOW - at Silver Spring, Maryland location

Price last fall!!!
That is HALF of what it cost when I first got addicted to it last fall!!  That's great for my wallet (maybe not so great for my stomach??).

My only fear is that the big price cut means they are getting rid of it...  I worry about this because it happens at Trader Joe's - just when you find the perfect product, they decide they aren't going to carry it anymore.  Sigh.  If this sounds like a "sigh" of experience, that is because it is.  Why, just this VERY EVENING I hunted and hunted for a product that I really like, haven't posted the review of yet, and just ran out of.  Guess what?  They have discontinued the amazing Sambal Matah.  I have a draft of a review and just never fleshed it out.  Alas, if I post it NOW, you guys are going to want to get this stuff, and it won't be on the shelves.  Drat.

This is my (not quite patented) Bollywood Popcorn eating technique!  No messy fingers!
Anyway, DO GO GET SOME BOLLYWOOD POPCORN.  It is bizarrely yummy!  Complete review here:  Bollywood Popcorn review link

UPDATE:  I went to our Bailey's Crossroads (Virginia) Trader Joe's on March 12, 2017.  Every other person there was stocking up on food due to the winter weather alert we are in (big snow coming).  I, however, was snagging snacks for a road trip!  I went to get a bag of Bollywood Popcorn and was surprised that they all had a "Best Buy" date of 3 days away, March 15....  I asked a TJ's employee who was stocking corn chips nearby if they were discontinuing Bollywood.  She said she didn't know, but the store had been really "pushing" it and had been sent a ton to get rid of....  I found one bag that had a date other than March 15 - and it was March 11.  Sigh.  Alas, I do not think Bollywood Popcorn is long for this world.  If you want some - GET IT NOW.


  1. They did this a couple of months ago with the amazing spicy dill potato chips. Please don't tell me it means that it's gone??

    1. I HOPE NOT! I love when they give price breaks, I hate when they discontinue stuff...

  2. We are making a trip to Louisiana on March 25th. I'll see if they have a bag of it. I don't think I've ever tasted tika masala.

    Glad to see you seem all well now. We are expecting storms here in Mississippi this weekend. Go ahead and review that other product. I'd still like to see it.

    Happy weekend.

  3. I went to Trader Joe's today. My heart broke when I discovered Sambal Matah had been discontinued. 😢

    1. I couldn't agree more... Sigh. I was really disappointed! I wrote to TJ's and they said that Sambal Matah had not been a good seller, so they stopped carrying it.
      I think it might have been because they didn't MARKET it right. When we got it the first time there was no signage telling us what to do with it. If people had bought it and tried it they would have loved it!
      TJ's said that if enough people raise a stink, they sometimes bring a product back (well, they didn't say it in exactly those words, but similar :) ). Here is a link to contact them:
