Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Joe-Joe's

For this week's installment, kiddo and I review the famous Trader Joe's Joe-Joe's...the chocolate creme variety.

There's no description on the box, but you probably get the idea.  They're a rendition of a certain well-known sandwich cookie.

A 20 ounce box sells for $2.99.

My take: Trader Joe's has another hit with these little sandwich cookies.  Very similar in taste and texture to an Oreo.  The chocolate creme is good on its own...yes, I scraped my teeth along a couple of them to see (all in the name of research).  The cookies are crunchy, chocolatey, and not too sweet.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kiddo's take: I would take these over Oreos any day. The cookie (once eaten, of course) is bursting with flavor, and the rich chocolate creme sandwiched inside is quite possibly the best I've ever tasted. More, please!
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. There are my favorite treats from TJs. Way better than Oreos in my opinion.

  2. You know you're killing me with these reviews. I never buy this stuff at TJ's, and have been so proud of my restraint. You & Kiddo are breaking me down....cookie by cookie.

  4. I've never tried this kind, but my husband and I are obsessed with the vanilla joe joes. I really do think they are better than oreos. Something about the vanilla tastes so..REAL! If you haven't tried those yet, I highly recommend it!

  8. Yum! I will have to try these!
    If you haven't already tried them you have to try their chocolate croissants (the almond is awesome too) and the Kouign Amann (butter caramel flakey pastry goodness). They are in the freezer section and you pull them out overnight and they proof and double in size, then you bake in the morning. You will love them!
