Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches

Really...how can one pass up a dessert labeled as "sublime?" I cannot. Marketers, please don't start labeling everything as sublime, I have college tuition to pay for next year.

Trader Joe's Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches. Vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies, then rolled in mini chocolate chips. A box of 4 sandwiches costs $4.49.

A mom's (my) take: Honestly, I was sure these would fall short of their "sublime" designation. Most cookie ice cream sandwiches just don't live up to their potential. Well, I was wrong. These ice cream sandwiches ARE sublime. Soft chocolate chip cookies are the perfect texture...no crumbling, no breaking apart. The vanilla ice cream is creamy and luscious. The mini chocolate chips add a little extra chocolate flavor and a bit of crunch. These are going straight on my "might-be-too-tempting-to-keep-in-the-house list."
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: In the past, sandwiches like these seem to be eclipsed by the raw cold that comes from their being frozen--not with this one. Right out of the freezer, these have a powerful taste. A good ol' chocolate chip cookie taste is complemented perfectly by the cool, refreshing vanilla ice cream. Perfect. Now, the only problem is the size of your stomach...
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  2. Favorite summer treat. My closest TJs is still a bit far away for frozen ice cream treats. Might have to bring the fam and eat the whole box in the parking lot.

  4. These are one of my top items from TJ's and the last few times I've gone they have been sold out (no surprise). They are so much better if you have the willpower to let them melt for a few minutes on the counter first.
