Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday : Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits

Hello, Saturday. Hello, Trader Joe's. These two things just belong together. ♥

Today we review Trader Joe's Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits. They've caught my eye the last few times I've been in TJ's. I think they must be new.

Inside the box, you'll find 5 packets of 4 biscuits each. (A serving size is 4 biscuits.) Each serving contains 22 grams of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber. Part of the description reads, "...biscuit is British for cookie...Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits are ultimately cookies. That you eat for breakfast."

A box will set you back $2.49.

A mom's (my) take: Crispy and thin, yet substantial at the same time, these biscuits hit just the perfect note of sweet and grains. The dried blueberries are just right (as Goldilocks would say), adding chewy bits and fruity sweetness. I'm a huge fan of bars...I eat them often for breakfast and always stash a few in my bag for lunches on the run or when traveling. Crossing my fingers that these are a permanent TJ's item, and not seasonal. These will be on my weekly must-buy list.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: The blueberry taste permeates the whole thing, which is awesome. They have a whole-grain-y flavor to them, which I'm not normally a huge fan of, but it helps give the biscuits a substantive taste. Also, they're filling, which I wasn't expecting! So, overall, nice flavoring and consistency. My only problem is that it can get stuck in your teeth quite easily :)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Here's what else we're (ok, I'm) loving this week: 
  • Did you happen to see Claire Danes dress for the Met Gala?!? Oh. My. Gosh. She wore the ultimate Cinderella dress that LIT UP....in a good way. Amazing. 
  • Let's continue on the the fashion motif for a minute. If you're on the fence about joining Stitch Fix, it's time to GET OFF OF THAT FENCE. You know they recently added shoes? Well, they are so fun. I'm in love. So is Spike
  • Summer must be fast approaching because all of a sudden, I have hot dogs on the brain. Specifically these and these
  • Not to be bossy, but you're going to need these chocolate cheesecake-filled strawberries in your life. I mean it.

  4. Just picked some up today - and according to Dad (85 years young) they taste much better than the other brand name version we have tried! Glad I grabbed a second box.

  5. I went to my local Trader Joe's in Washington and they were completely out of stock. I think this review had something to do with it :) Will check again next time but thank you for your review!

  6. I think these are probably Trader Joe's version of Belvita biscuits...
