Trader Joe's Saucy Scallops with Mushrooms

These Saucy Scallops with Mushrooms are found in the  freezer section (found on pg. 5 if, by chance, you still have your October Fearless Flyer).  They come at $4.99 for a 1 lb. bag.

When I saw these in the Fearless Flyer I was really excited about them.  I mentioned them to some friends who had gotten a hold of them and really enjoyed the dish, which made me all the more happy to try them.

For weeks I would get to Trader Joe's and they were out of stock.  When I finally got my hands on them I bought 3 packages.  We served the dish with rice and a side dish.

In all of my excitement, I actually came away disappointed.  I hate to say it, but I wouldn't buy them again.  My husband thought they were okay, but not amazing.

It's hard to say why exactly we didn't love this item, but I think it was something with the sauce.  A bit too bland for my husband and just a weird taste for me.  Again, we have friends who loved this dish, so I won't say it's a loss for everyone.  This review might be a personal preference, but we won't get it again.
