I’ve been doing this blog for several years and I can’t believe I haven’t done a review of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups! I was recently reviewing the most popular items from 2016 and Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups were ranked number 2 behind the Mandarin Orange Chicken.
The reason I can’t believe that I haven’t reviewed these is that I buys these almost every week and it’s one of those things that you buy and forget about. Trader Joe’s has a lot of different variations on these peanut butter cups, but these are my favorite ones and the way my kids go through them, they really love them too!
Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies. My kids love cookies. I try to keep them out of the house as much as possible, but those teenagers really have a sweet tooth. I guess when I wasn’t looking, one of my kids slipped these into my shopping cart when I wasn’t looking. Why not? They are chocolate chip cookie sandwiches! What on earth could be better?!?!? In a teenager mind, probably nothing…
The truth is I could easily make these at home for less money and like 3 times as many cookies. How hard would it be to bake some cookies, melt some chocolate and bam! you have basically the same thing. The problem with this, of course, is I actually have to make the cookies and melt the chocolate and all that. Sure I could probably do these better, but I could probably also make Oreo cookies at home with enough time and effort that taste better than the store bought ones, but hardly anyone does that. Why? It’s too much work!
Trader Joe’s Honey Walnut Shrimp. If you’ve been following along with me over the years, you know that I have a real soft spot for Asian food. I lived in Thailand for a couple of years when I was a kid (parents were in the Foreign Service) and after that we were all hooked on some serious Asian food.
One of the first places I look when I go to Trader Joe’s is the frozen section to see if there are any new Asian dishes there. I was lucky today and found this really good looking Honey Walnut Shrimp! I love the Panda Express Honey Walnut Shrimp and I was hoping that Trader Joe’s wouldn’t disappoint me. When I got this and took it to the checkout line, even the checkers hadn’t seen it yet and were super excited to try it!
