Dealer Joe’s Halloween Joe Joe’s

Trader Joe's Halloween Joe Joe's

Some time again, Russ reviewed the Sweet Cane Joe Joe’s. These issues are so well-liked, they’ve their very own Fb fan web page with practically 2,000 followers! Russ wasn’t fairly as enthused with them as some folks appear to be, however they obtained an OK rating from [email protected] And an extended, very long time in the past, I reviewed the Joe Joe’s n’ Cream Ice Cream. Fairly good.

I’ve heard a little bit of on-line chatter about these Halloween Joe Joe’s, obtainable solely seasonally, they usually’re apparently a fairly large hit, as properly. It’s sort of a vacation theme I see right here: sandwich cookies with sweet canes at Christmas, Jack-o-Lantern face cookies for Halloween (or ought to I say “Joe-o-Lantern,” haha), after which who can overlook the Thanksgiving Joe Joe’s with cranberry sauce filling or the New Yr’s Joe Joe’s: two skinny chocolate cookies with layers of pork and sauerkraut in between. Yummy. Really, these final two sorts of Joe Joe’s don’t actually exist, not less than to not the very best of my data. However my level is that there’s a complete line of Joe Joe’s merchandise, together with just a few seasonal gadgets that folks wait eagerly for annually.

Now, I wasn’t as courteous as Russ with this put up, as a result of I did not assume to take an image of the diet data earlier than I threw away the field. I’ll try to recollect to take action sooner or later, as our readers have requested for that. And it is only one extra sensible method we might help folks plan their weekly grocery retailer journeys. For these cookies, I’ll exit on a limb and let you know that these aren’t low fats, low calorie, or low something. These cookies are full-on dessert gadgets. Hopefully Dealer Joe’s used actual sugar and different pure sweeteners like they often do as an alternative of one thing out of a take a look at tube, however aside from that, there’s in all probability not a complete lot that was spared to make these a candy deal with sort of meals, versus a lite, wholesome snack.

So far as style, properly, they’re chocolate sandwich cookies with vanilla filling. Very candy. They appeared sweeter than most to me. And I’ve a candy tooth. Sonia, who claims to love sweets lower than I do, says that they have been the proper sweetness and higher than Oreos. That is a daring assertion. I don’t know if I can agree with that assertion completely, however I’ll give them this: their “vanilla bean cream” filling truly tastes like vanilla bean…very pure—tremendous candy—however definitely not faux. I assume it is perhaps higher than the filling in an Oreo. And let’s face it, the filling is the very best half. I believed the chocolate a part of the cookies was fairly commonplace.

I don’t know what else to say about them, besides possibly that they’re cute. Yeah, the whole lot from the packaging, to the orange-colored filling, to the aforementioned “Joe-o-Lantern” face on them is remarkably well-designed and season-appropriate. Props to the designers.

Possibly partially as a result of she’s a graphic designer and has an affinity for cute issues (comparable to myself), Sonia’s gonna give ‘em a 4. She’s a fan. They’re good…however there was one thing about them that made me really feel like I had eaten an excessive amount of after consuming solely about three. And that doesn’t occur to me fairly often. If not for the ounce of self-control I used to be blessed with, I may usually down a whole package deal of cookies like these earlier than getting that “Oh, possibly I ought to cease consuming” feeling. So I’ll give ‘em a 3.
