If you’ve been on the search for delicious and unique desserts that won’t break the bank, then we’ve got you covered. Literally covered… in chocolate!
Trader Joe’s desserts are the best products to satisfy your sweet tooth because their selection is seriously spectacular, and there’s something for everyone. From frozen bars to cake and cookies to all things chocolate, here are the 15 best Trader Joe’s desserts you need to get your hands on.
1. Southern Peach Crisp Ice Cream
The sweet, creamy ice cream is swirled with delicious South Carolina-grown peach purée and chunks of luscious buttery, cinnamon-spiked oat crisp. So you absolutely need to buy it, right?
2. Tangerine Ice Cream Bars
Beat the heat with these delicious, refreshing, and, not to mention, guilt-free citrus fruit bars! This treat features tangerine sorbet instead of the traditional orange flavor to deliver a serious punch of tartness along with a sweet, creamy center.
3. Strawberry & Vanilla Yogurt Pretzels
These strawberry candy-coated pretzels are the perfect combination of sweet and salty to indulge in any time of day or even at night. If you’re a fan of Trader Joe’s Strawberry Yogurt O’s cereal, these mini pretzels are a must-try. But fair warning – you can’t eat just one!
4. Pancake Bread
If you haven’t tried this sugary breakfast bread yet, do yourself a favor and pick up a loaf (or three) next time you do your grocery shopping! Think half coffee cake, half fluffy buttermilk pancakes. But don’t forget the best part – they have plenty of maple syrup. Yum!
5. Vegan Cookies & Creme Vanilla Bean Bon Bons
This one’s a classic choice when you’re in the mood for something sweet but don’t know what to reach for. These frozen coconut milk bonbons are studded with chocolate and vanilla bean cookies. Furthermore, they’re even wrapped in a hard chocolate coating.
6. Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Oat Bars
These gluten-free and vegan fudgsicle pops will remind you of those you would get from the ice cream trucks growing up. They’re the best pick-me-up when you need one!
7. Cold Brew Coffee and Boba Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert
This Taiwanese tea-based frozen dessert is a bubble tea spin-off with a coconut milk base, cold-brewed coffee, and soft and chewy tapioca pearls swirled throughout.
8. Strawberry Shortcake Sandwich Cookies
These beautiful strawberry buttercream cookies were inspired by TJ’s ultra-popular “These Sprinkles Walk Into A Sandwich Cookie.” But they come with a twist. Be sure to stock up on these limited-edition pink cookies while you have the chance!
9. Fruit Gummy Candies
These are the best gummies that you will ever try. We repeat: Best. Ever. Enjoy a unique range of pineapple, grapefruit, watermelon, mango, and blueberry flavors in this pack when you want to reach for something sweet but not over the top.
10. Peaches & Cream Tarte
This fruit pastry is rustic, flaky, and buttery with the perfect amount of sweet cream cheese and sugar-sweetened peaches in each bite. It’s pre-baked, so all you have to do is heat and eat it! Also, don’t forget to smother it in whipped cream!
11. Ube Tea Cookies
These shortbread cookies are made from a perfect blend of ube purée, cinnamon, vanilla, and powdered sugar and therefore delicious. They taste even better than they look. Ube is a purple yam originating in the Philippines, and even though you may not have heard of it before, these cookies are a must-try.
12. Aussie-style Chocolate Crème Sandwich Cookies
The silky chocolate crème is sandwiched between two crispy chocolate biscuits and furthermore covered in a smooth chocolate coating. So delicious!
13. Citrus Mousse Cakes
These mini vanilla cakes are topped with a thick layer of sweet orange- or lemon-flavored mousse that is unlike any other sweet summer classic you’ve tried before.
14. Mini Coffee Bean Ice Cream Cones
When you need something on the go that’s mess-free and still packs a punch that will leave you fully satisfied, reach for these creamy, caffeinated mini cones. Why? So you won’t be disappointed, of course!
15. Smashing S’mores
Who needs a campfire when you have these irresistible s’mores? Each square of graham cracker is topped with a huge marshmallow and is also doused in silky milk chocolate. So just pop one in the microwave for a few seconds to make the center ooey-gooey and enjoy!
