These Mini Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Wedges catch my eye every time I pass by the frozen treats. Trader Joe's describes them as "an ice cream that thinks it's a cheesecake." (And also, "enlarged to show texture" ...you'll see in a second.)
Each box contains 6 ice cream cheesecake pops and costs $2.99. Side note: these are mini pops and each one has only 100 calories!
Let's see how they stack up, shall we?
My take: I was first taken in by just how smooth and creamy the cheesecake ice cream is. Then, I was so pleasantly surprised by the blueberry swirl. It actually tastes like blueberry cheesecake topping that you'd make at home. Full of flavor, the perfect addition to brighten up the ice cream itself. I loved reading that the blueberry swirl color is enhanced by red cabbage. Hey, you know I'm not afraid of a little food coloring, but I appreciate foods that don't have it when it isn't needed. Bravo, Trader Joe's! I know this will be on Mr. E's list of items we must buy each time we shop!

Kiddo's take: These taste exactly like cheesecake. Not cheesecake-flavored, but real. The addition of the graham cracker crumbs on the outside and blueberry in the middle make it a dessert you won't forget anytime soon. It might give me a brain freeze, but I definitely could eat the whole box - and maybe more!
