Cooking Notes

The calamari came out a bit greasy in our tests, so we recommend resting them on a clean kitchen towel or paper towel to absorb some of the excess oil after cooking.

About The Trader Rater

The selection at Trader Joe's is amazing, and we are constantly discovering new and exciting products. But all those options can be a bit overwhelming, and it can be hard to know what's worth buying. That's where we come in! Our goal is to help you navigate the aisles by providing you with unbiased (and unauthorized) reviews and recommendations to help you decide whether to "scan it" or "can it". We hope you find our site helpful!


  1. First and last time I’ll buy these. Simply awful. No flavor over processed and terrible aftertaste. I’m extremely disappointed with this product but still a big fan of trader joes.

  2. Probably the worst frozen food I’ve tried from Trader Joe’s! The breading is under-seasoned and falls apart way too easily. The calamari itself is pretty flavorless as well. Following the instructions, the larger pieces came out raw. Yes, RAW! Cooking them for 15 min instead of 9 helped, but the taste was still pretty bad.

  3. Thanks for your feedback guys. We had some issues with this Calamari as well. Keep in mind – TJ’s has a great return/refund policy. They’ve never had an issue with us returning items we didn’t like.
