Two Trader Joe’s Amazing Finds

Today we have not one, but TWO,  new Trader Joe’s finds I’m head over heals in love with.

Trader Joe’s Highbrow Chocolate Chip Cookies ($3.99)

“Highbrow”? What does this mean when applied to  boxed Chocolate Chip cookies?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I simply had to find out for myself.  Verdict, they are divine and delicious. I selfishly ate the entire box myself and fought my family off with a broom.  If you like your chocolate chip cookies a little crisp, not soft and chewy, you’ll love these. They taste like my mom’s recipe. They are a touch salty but not in a must-find-water potato chip kind of way. Suffice it to say, these Trader Joe’s Highbrow Chocolate Chip Cookies are worthy of their name “Highbrow”.

Calories: 140 for serving size 2 cookies approximately 16 per box or so – I lost count in my binging.

Trader Joe’s Danish Pancakes (Ableskiver’s – $3.49)

I tasted these last week during a TJ’s friendly demonstration and they had me weak in the knees.  I found myself coming up with reasons to quietly and quickly return to the demonstration to grab

By my third return I knew this product was a hallelujah.  Of course they were covered in powder sugar, but the doughy consistency had me nodding my head in approval. My inner culinary creativity surged;  what about cinnamon sugar, sprinkles, hot fudge, or the ultimate Kahlua Hot Fudge Sauce with these babies?

Calories: 170 for a serving size of 2 . Approximately 20 per bag.

Run. Do not walk .

These are perfect for the upcoming holidays or any time for that matter.

Put these indulgences in your fridge and pantry, you will not be sorry.
