Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: mini Gingerbread Men

Less than a week until Christmas! Less than a week to eat all of Trader Joe's holiday goodies!!! Let's do this, people!

This week, we're reviewing Trader Joe's mini Gingerbread Men cookies. Described as "gingerbread cookies with white fudge icing," a (big!) 16-ounce box costs $2.99

A mom's (my) take: Danger! Danger! These cookies are utterly addictive! Crispy, crunchy, spicy...I cannot get enough of these. The creamy white chocolate coating on each cookie is the perfect foil to the spicy flavor. I noticed in the ingredients list that not only are these made with ground ginger, but with crystallized ginger...I think that's the secret to their amazing flavor. Open a box at your own risk.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: These little guys are pretty darn good. You can definitely tell that there is real ginger being used in the cookie, the consistency of which is a nice balance between chewy and crunchy. The "fudge icing" isn't very fudg-y, but it does have a pleasant taste, which is not too rich or over-the-top, something which I particularly enjoy. Lastly, there is a nice spicy aftertaste, something that will probably send you back for another handful... or boxful.
Overall rating: 4. 5 out of 5 stars

  3. @Suburban prep you can still buy them through Amazon! :) I bought these at the Trader Joe's in my area on the whim. Oh boy, these cookies are addicting alright! But I don't regret buying them at all.
