Sweet on Trader Joe's : Hold the Cone (rewind)

Hi all! Well, Jack and I are recovering from wisdom teeth extraction. Yes, both of us. On the same day. Please pray for my husband.

Since we're not up to doing anything but lying in bed watching movies...and I'm not sure when we'll be eating solid food again, we bring you a Trader Joe's rewind. Enjoy!

Our Trader Joe's dessert review this week starts in the freezer section...with the Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones (chocolate variety).

Trader Joe's describes these as "filled with rich chocolate ice cream and chocolate flavored coating."

Each package contains 8 mini ice cream cones and sells for $2.99.

My take: I was prepared to not like these. Frozen "treats" (with the exception of Blue Bell ice cream sandwiches) usually underwhelm me.  The mini cones?  Oh my goodness.  I loved them.  The chocolate ice cream is creamy and soft, and each cone is filled with just a bit of chocolate at the bottom...a happy little bonus.  This box was in our house for about 18 hours before we'd eaten them all.  Plus: "Hold the Cone!"  Bonus point for the cute name!
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kiddo's take: This is just like Dairy Queen, except smaller! The delicious chocolate shell yields easily, revealing a decadent chocolate ice cream. The waffle cone complements the ice cream well, adding a crunchy element to the mix.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
