Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Coffee Cocoa Batons

We've reviewed Trader Joe's Cocoa Batons before and here's a new variety: Coffee Cocoa Batons.

Trader Joe's Coffee Cocoa Batons review



A mom's (my) take: Upon opening the lid and foil liner, the scent of a coffee shop wafts right out. It's as if the cookies are begging you to make a cappuccino. The wafers themselves are crisp and light...the wafer shatters a bit with each bite. The filling looks like rich chocolate, but what I really get from this is coffee flavor. I could see myself mindlessly eating many of these, but I'd still like more filling and more chocolate to balance out that coffee.
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: For me, just too much coffee flavor! Of course, I may be a bit biased just because I'm not a coffee person, but still... I think you might only like this if you're OK with being inundated with a fairly strong coffee flavor. Other than that, though, I couldn't complain--the consistency is perfect, just what you would expect from "batons" like these, and the chocolate is to die for. So, not my cup of tea (no pun intended), but it could very well be yours.
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars

  1. I bought for my husband as he has enjoyed the Chocolate batons before. This time the coffee cocoa ones were good but he did say they were very much flavored with coffee. He enjoyed though.

  2. I have never tried these, but the word coffee is before the word cocoa so no surprise the coffee taste is stronger.
