Favorite Treat From Trader Joe’s

You guys, can we talk dessert? I’m a fairly healthy person, but I still love a treat every now and again. I have recently discovered the yummiest treat of all time, from none other than Trader Joe’s…go figure.

I’m sure it’s probably already a cult favorite that many have discovered before me, but I wanted to share it with those of you that may not have tried it yet.  They are Trader Joe’s Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches….Ahhhhhhh!

{This is where I’d normally post a really cute picture of me eating this delectable treat while laughing and gazing off into the distance.  BUT this box was empty in my freezer…..OOPS.}

They definitely live up to their name because they are sublime indeed.  Let’s start with the cookie part of the sandwich.  The cookies have the perfect amount of chewiness and taste just like soft cookie dough….it’s my favorite part for sure.  Next comes the creamy, simple vanilla ice cream which is the perfect compliment to the cookies.  Trader Joe’s did it right by not overloading it with too much ice cream…it’s the perfect cookie to ice cream ratio.  They could have just left it at that, but OH NO they just had to go and roll it in mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to add the perfect amount of crunch.

Hint : Let it sit out and soften for just about two minutes before enjoying.  Ice Cream Sandwich perfection.

The price is not bad either at just $3.99 for a pack of four.  If they were at Whole Foods, they’d probably be priced at $10.99/box…god I love Trader Joes.

I treat myself to something sweet about once or twice/week without an inch of guilt.  I had no idea how many calories were in these because I’m not a calorie counter. Moderation is key for me, but below is a picture of the nutritional facts for those of you that do care.

Worried that this has too many calories for you?  Share it with your husband, like I do, or a friend or your kids or put half back in the wrapper for another time.  Easy as that!

If you never allow yourself to eat what you’re craving, I personally think, it will backfire on you.  Don’t set yourself up for failure.  Binge anyone?  When you allow yourself to have a treat every once in awhile it will be much easier for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the long haul.

Are you drooling yet?  If you don’t trust me..go to a Trader Joe’s near you and enjoy this little treat.  You deserve it.  Let me know if you’ve tried these before and if you love them as much as I do!

I have the busiest of days tomorrow because I leave for a blogger’s conference super early Friday morning.  It’s in Seattle and I’ve never been there….any recommendations on what to do?  Thanks babes!
