Today, Jack and I are bringing you a review of Trader Joe's Toasted Coconut Cookie Thins.
A 9-ounce box (2 sleeves of cookies) costs $3.99. Trader Joe's describes these as "...a warm, toasty escape you can enjoy all year long."
A mom's (my) take: One bite and these cookies will magically transport you to a tropical island. I can totally picture it...the waves crashing, the lei of flowers around my neck, the sweet coconut rum cocktail in one hand, and these crunchy little cookies in the other. Ahhhhhhhh... The cookies are crispy, crunchy, light, and loaded with toasted coconut flavor. These unassuming looking little cookies pack a flavorful punch and rank in my top 5 sweets we've ever reviewed. Now, I'm off to talk to Mr. E about planning that tropical vacation...on the other hand, if I just eat the cookies, I don't have to put on a bathing suit.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teeanger's (Jack's) take: These little guys are packed with flavor. Before we get to that, though, the crunch is just right, to the point where it doesn't collapse, but not too crunchy to where you have to work at it. That provides you an opportunity to focus on the flavor. Of course, coconut is the star of the show, but I can taste some other things too: a butter-y taste, the a hint of toasted-ness (hence the title), and something that may be butterscotch. Or at least it tastes like it. Overall, if you need a light, but sweet pick-me-up, this is a wonderful way to go.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
