This week, we review Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Triple Ginger Cookies. This is a seasonal item at Trader Joe's and comes in a pretty little box for giving.
Trader Joe's describes these as "a kicked up chocolate lover's version of our best selling ginger cookie." A 6-ounce box (about 15 cookies) costs $2.99.
A mom's (my) take: I'm a big fan of chocolate and ginger together. I wanted to love these, I tried to love these...it didn't happen. The dark chocolate really overpowers the ginger cookie. They're not a bad cookie, just not as good as I wanted them to be.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
A teenager's (kiddo's) take: I think a more fitting name for these would be "Triple Dark Chocolate Ginger Cookies". Yes, the chocolate definitely outdoes the ginger by a mile. That's not a bad thing, though. If you're really looking for ginger, you won't find much but a hint of it. However, if you're going for taste, you'll absolutely love the flavor.
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
