Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Mango Joe-Joe's

If you've been to Trader Joe's lately, you might have noticed the mango-palooza happening right now. The store manager said even more is on the way.

The sliced mango is one of the items I put in my basket EVERY time I'm at Trader Joe's. Thank you, thank you, Trader Joe's for making life easier for this lazy girl! Woo hoo...pre-sliced fruit!

A mom's (my) take: These are probably the best mango flavored sandwich cookies you'll ever eat. The question is...do you really want to eat mango sandwich cookies? Reminiscent of a Golden Oreo with a hint of mango, these Joe Joe's are good, but I'd rather have a regular Joe Joe with a side of their sliced mangoes.
Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: I loved these! First of all, the classic Joe-Joe's cookie taste is something that I personally cannot get enough of, mainly because it tastes like shortbread. :) The mango filling is pretty substantial, but not overwhelming, and neither is its flavor. You'd be able to tell the flavor without reading the box, but you won't be left with a strong fruity aftertaste, either.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. Hmmm. we love the TJ chocolate and vanilla and the peppermint ones at Christmas. I don't know if I can go with a mango.I love TJ so much. I have shared a few favorites. I love their cleaning cloths which is one of the only non edible items I buy. xo laura {not a trophy wife}

    1. To me, they taste like Quaker Peaches n Cream oatmeal in cookie form.
