Best Trader Joe's cookies?

My boyfriend and I are addicted to TJ's Triple Ginger Cookies!

Are there other ones I should be trying as well? I've had the brownie mini-bites which are good but the small chocolate chip ones are on the dry side. And the biscotti is just eh. I need recommendations!

  1. I really like the chocolate chip dunkers, with and without the chocolate coated side. They've got coconut in them which makes them crunchy and fairly addictive. Since they're big (long really), I try to break off a piece and just eat that, but I always go back and finish it off!

    1. Swiss Almond Crunch Cookies--really yummy. When I include them on a cookie tray, they're always the first to go, and usually someone asks me for the recipe. Embarrassing.

      1. Chocolate chunk cookies (comes in a bag in the bread section).

        Soft fruit biscotti (same area).

        Vanilla bean creme/chocolate Joe-Joe's.

        1. There are some new, seasonal Joe-Joe's with peppermint chunks in the filling. I just got some last night, and they are excellent. I do miss the ginger Joe-Joe's, though, which have been discontinued.

            yes! they taste like thin mints, but better, and with no trans fats or corn syrup!

              Ooh, I'm madly in love with these. My family's signature "flavor", if there can be such a thing, is chocolate-mint, so these are like heaven. They're really mint-y, which is unusual to find.

                Then you might like TJ's seasonal peppermint chocolate bar! It's quite a thick slab.

                Mmmmm another Joe-Joe's with candy cane lover here... they smell wonderful and taste even better!

                  Ooooh those are SO delicious. Using crushed candy canes to flavor the cream was a stroke of genius! They add a wonderfully crunchy texture, which really stands out when you dunk the cookies in milk. And I feel like the flavor is MUCH better than it would have been had they simply added peppermint extract to the cream. Go Joe's!

                2. I vote for Caramel Cashew cookies.

                    Second that one. Doesn't look like much, but nobody I offered it to can resist taking seconds and thirds.
