Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies

Trader Joe's salted caramel coconut cookies review
I love when Trader Joe's displays new items on an endcap. Mr. E and I were at TJ's last week buying pizza supplies and as we walked by the endcap, one of these ended up in our basket. We didn't even have to stop. That's the thing about Trader Joe's...I don't stand in the aisle debating over something like I do in the grocery store. If it looks interesting, it comes home with me.

Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies. Well, I lost the receipt, but I would guess they're around $3.00 a box for 7 ounces. The box describes them as "chewy coconut macaroon cookies with a salted caramel center."

A mom's (my) take: I don't taste much salted caramel here and THAT'S OK because these are fabulous. Addictive, soft, sweet, chewy, perfect little coconut macaroon nuggets. While the salted caramel doesn't add a huge flavor component...and I ate 4 to be sure...it does add to the texture, making these even softer and more luscious than they'd be without it.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: These are pretty good overall! Nice, rich coconut flavor with the macaroon... the only thing I would say bad about them is that the salted caramel flavor is not very evident, almost none at all. But if you'd be satisfied with just coconut, then go for it.
Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

  2. I feel the same way about tj's! If it's interesting, it definitely goes straight into my cart. Thank you for reviewing these. I was wondering about the salted caramel. Good to know!

  3. I saw and bought these last week and wondered if you'd review them. I love them! I actually think the salted caramel has great flavor; there's just not much of it. If you're weird like me and use your finger to scoop some of it out onto your tongue you can really taste it.
