Trader Joe’s Gingerbread Coffee

Trader Joe's Gingerbread Coffee

Trader Joe’s has always been a master of gingerbread-ish. This is an example: The cookie butter. Although it’s not gingerbread, it is “reminiscent” of gingerbread. The gluten-free version is also available. ginger snapsThe lemon triple ginger snap ice cream, and pfeffernusse are all TJ’s gingerbread (or at least gingerbread-esque) classics.

This is my first ever gingerbread drink. It’s quite drinkable. I find it not to be chuggable, but it is quite drinkable.

For those of you who are new readers, I should mention that I am not a fan of coffee. I’m semi-sophisticated, but still adventurous. I love my beverages to taste like candy. So for caffeine, I drink energy drinks. They are bad for you. However, I have felt much better since I stopped drinking high fructose corn syrup. However, that’s not all. My point is that I have been trying to get into adulthood by becoming addicted to coffee and not energy drinks.

It’s a difficult transition for me—even with coffees that taste as delicious and unique as this one. It has a fair amount sugar and milk, but most coffee drinkers will use less. However, gingerbread is an intrinsic dessert-like coffee so it might be a good addition even for coffee purists who may only consume this stuff on special occasions.

The coffee is mildly cinnamon-flavored, with hints gingerbread. It doesn’t have a strong or overwhelming taste. This product is a mild winter morning wake-me up beverage. It’s nice. It’s a pleasant, peaceful scent. Sonia likes it, too. It’s not particularly wintery, she says. She plans to ration her coffee and enjoy it well into spring, which, according to her, will be next week. Philadelphia isn’t supposed to reach the 50’s in January.

It gets 4 stars from Sonia. It gets 3.

Final verdict: 7/10
