Dealer Joe’s Natural Vanilla Wafer Cookies

“WHY DOESN’T TRADER JOE’S SELL BANANA CREAM PUDDING!?!?!?!?!”

I’ve questioned every so often why TJ’s does not promote specific objects – I imply, they may have an entire line of child meals, title it Dealer Joey’s, put a child kangaroo on it, and name it a day whereas making a killing – however banana cream pudding is not a type of issues whose absense I ever questioned. It is simply not at TJ’s. It does not want to be. Not that it would not be welcome – I am certain TJ’s may purchase and distribute a reasonably darn good banana cream pudding. But it surely by no means crossed my thoughts that it was one thing that the model lacked, and so far as I do know, not my spouse Sandy’s both, till the introduction of the brand new Dealer Joe’s Natural Vanilla Wafer Cookies.

The blatantly apparent comparability to those cookies is the well-known Nilla Wafers. These are all time classics – a bit plain, sure, however everybody is aware of what a nilla wafer tastes like. And apparently Sandy’s favourite approach to take pleasure in these ubiquitously well-known cookies is with banana cream pudding, therefore her outburst of kinds.

I am going to admit it, these TJ’s wafers are fairly first rate. One noteworthy side of the attraction is the simple textural really feel – they’re extremely comfortable and crumbly. There have been only a few full cookies that survived totally intact from manufacturing unit to my kitchen. That is not a nasty factor – the very fact the cookies virtually soften in your mouth is a significant plus. Love ’em for that.

However nonetheless, there’s one thing a bit of off right here flavorwise. It isn’t the vanilla – it comes off robust and sugary upfront and is totally pleasant. However a couple of chews reveal a sure….I do not know what. For lack of higher idea, I believe it tastes a bit of eggy. Too eggy. And certain sufficient, the components checklist “dry egg powder” which appears a bit of unusual to me. I am keen to be flawed right here, however that is what I am going to level to as the primary offender for my slight displeasure. Dry egg powder….*shakes fist*.

Regardless, we as a household loved the cookies. Out of the field, they’re adequate as is, however even higher is paired with a bit of frosting or Nutella or jam. And, yeah, in all probability, banana cream pudding. Sandy raved concerning the wafers, noting their crumbliness. I like them sufficient to have a couple of however not sufficient to need to eat the entire field directly, in order that’s a plus. Couple bucks for the pouch and some stars every in our books.
