Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's

The holidays are here and you know what that means.  It's time to break out the fat pants.
It's time for all things gingerbread and peppermint.

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's review
This week, we're reviewing Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's.  We also have some guest reviewers, three of kiddo's cousins, ages 7, 5, and 3.

Joe Joe's are Trader Joe's version of Oreos.  These are the peppermint variety, covered in chocolate, and sprinkled with crushed candy canes.  How much are they?  Well, I'm at my sister's house and left my receipt at home.  So much for being organized.  $3-4ish...each box contains about 10 cookies.

A mom's (my) take:  New rule...all Oreo-type cookies should be enrobed in chocolate.  The chocolate coating is spot on and seems to seal in the freshness of the cookie.  The peppermint just adds a little holiday sparkle.  These would be a nice little gift, a sweet addition to a holiday cookie platter, or perfect on Santa's cookie plate.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (kiddo's) take: I could definitely eat an entire box in no time. Maybe 2. Or 5. The Joe-Joe's themselves are excellent, but when smothered in rich chocolate with peppermint crumbles on top... you really can't beat it.
Overall rating: 6 out of 5 stars :)
