Serious Soy Chorizo Shortage at Trader Joe's Leaves Me Peevish

UPDATE --------------------------------------------------------

Official latest word on the status of Trader Joe's beloved SOYRIZO from Corporate HQ.
"Dear Sara,
Thank you for your feedback.  Our Trader Joe's Soyrizo is currently out of stock in our warehouse and assure you it has not been discontinued. At this time there is no exact date on when it will be available for our stores to order.  We encourage you remain in contact with your local store's Captain or one of the Mate's for availability.
Thank you for shopping at Trader Joe's,

TLDR: Trader Joe's soy chorizo is still MIA with no ETA.

I have been having a serious craving for soy chorizo from Trader Joe's, so much so that we made the 40 minute pilgrimage to the closest store, in Shrewsbury, MA.
The refrigerated tofu and fake meat section at Trader Joe's was filled with all manner of faux ground beef, "chicken" cutlets, sweet and sour "pork", Tofurkey, firm tofu, silken tofu, and seiten (SATAN!!). Not a speck of soy chorizo though, no matter how hard we looked or how many employees we asked, NOTHING.

I guess I'm going to have to learn how to make my own. Do I have to do everything myself??
