This week, kiddo & I review one of his most requested TJ's sweets: the Belgian Butter Almond Thins.
Trader Joe's describes these as "all-butter traditional Belgian biscuits." They run $2.79 for a 7.05 ounce box...approximately 8 servings per box.
The cookies are very thin and delicate, crispy, and definitely buttery.
My Take: OK...I love that these have 6 ingredients and no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. That said, though, these aren't my favorite. They're good, but not my cup of tea. If you're a shortbread cookie lover or love those "butter cookies" in the tins at Christmastime, you might really enjoy these, though. I, on the other hand, was tempted to slather them with Nutella.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kiddo's Take: I don't know what world she's in, but these are delicious. Their thinness makes it feel like they melt in your mouth, and the almond flavor comes out very strong, leaving you with a sweet and enjoyable aftertaste. (Caution: I could eat an entire box of these in 5 minutes, so be careful.)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
