Trader Joe's Black Forest Cupcake Black Tea, reviewed

When I think of tea, I don’t usually think of dessert – though when I think of dessert, I often think of pairing it with tea. This Black Forest Cupcake Tea from Trader Joe’s, however, just might qualify as both. The dessert-inspired black tea is made with cocoa bean shells, carob, chicory, sasparilla and other spicy, chocolate flavors. As a fan of the classic chocolate ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Vanilla Eclairs, reviewed

Eclairs are a treat well worth making if you have a little bit of time to spend in the kitchen. The pastries have a crisp choux exterior and are filled with vanilla pastry cream, then topped with fondant or chocolate ganache. The multi-component dessert is wonderful when it is at its best, though the components are simple. Like many multi-component desserts, however, we’re always looking ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Coffeecello, reviewed

Trader Joe’s sells some limoncello – a wonderful Italian lemon liqueur that I use often in recipesĀ - that is not only delicious, but an outstanding value compared to other brands. On a recent trip, I noticed that they had a Coffeecello parked on the shelf next to it, packaged in a similar bottle. Coffeecello is a similarly produce liqueur that is made by infusing espresso-roast ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Pie with Maple and Bourbon, reviewed

The freezer case at Trader Joe’s is full of interesting goodies, particularly when it comes to desserts. You’ll always find ice creams, macarons and cakes in seasonal flavors, just waiting to be served up at a holiday gathering. One new addition to the case is their Sweet Potato Pie with a touch of Maple Bourbon flavor. That pie name is quite a mouthful and one ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Cherry Pie Filling, reviewed

Trader Joe's Cherry Pie Filling, reviewed

The jarred sweet cherries from Trader Joe’s are one of my favorite products. They’re not only delicious on their own, but they are a great base for cherry pies, cobblers, breads and other baked goods. Recently, Trader Joe’s introduced a Cherry Pie Filling that offers an even easier shortcut for those home bakers looking to make cherry desserts on the fly. While the jarred cherries ... Read More »

Trader Joe’s Mango Joe-Joe’s, reviewed

Trader Joe's Mango Joe-Joe's, reviewed

Joe Joe’s, Trader Joe’s Oreo cookie cousin, are some of the best selling products at the grocery chain. The cookies come in classic chocolate and vanilla, as well as a variety of seasonal flavors. Unlike Oreos, however, they’re naturally flavored and seasonal flavors tend to be much more limited (Oreo seems to have one or two new flavors every season!). One of the latest releases ...
