Today, we're reviewing Trader Joe's Soft-Baked Snickerdoodles. I'll be honest, when I picked up the box, I didn't notice that they were labeled as being "free of wheat, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, and soy." Hmmm.
A 6-ounce box of cookies costs...I'm not sure. I can't find my receipt, but I'm going to say $2-3-ish.
A mom's (my) take: Like I mentioned, I didn't even notice the "wheat, milk, nut, egg, and soy free" when I purchased these cookies, so when we grabbed the box to review today, I was a little hesitant. Guess what? They're AMAZING. These two-bite cookies are nicely spiced and sweetened to perfection. The combination of the brown sugar, dates, pear and grape juice concentrates used for sweetening the cookies make for a really rich flavor. Not only are these cookies soft, they're puffy! I love them. These cookies are now on my TJ's favorites list.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These really are AWESOME! The consistency is absolutely perfect. No, I mean that! The quintessence of "soft-baked". The classic snickerdoodle flavor is definitely here. My only wish, small as it is, is that there would be a bit more of the cinnamon flavoring... I could pick it out, but it wasn't entirely obvious. My other wish about these is that I could magically not get full while continuing to eat them...
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
