TJ's Candy Cane JoJo's?

  • 7

Any sightings yet this year? Haven't been in our local one for a couple weeks now and am wondering if they arrived yet and if it's time to go and stock up??

      Oh thanks! I figured they might be in by now...going to stop on my way home from work!

      Yippee!!

      Anyone else addicted to these delightful little things last year??

        I bought 2 boxes the other day because everyone raves about it on CH. After a bite, I failed to realize what the commotion was all about.

          Really? I don't even like sandwich cookies normally but at least last year these were so intensely pepperminty and ahd those crunchy pieces of cane. 2 of these in the evening with our coffee and we were in heaven...until they ran out of stock!

          I hope they haven't changed them...

          Didn't get by TJ's after work today...planning to look on my way in tomorrow!

            I bought one box due to the hype on here, and I also thought they were "meh". They're minty Oreos, nothing really special to me. I was much more impressed by Bouchon Bakery's "TKO" (Thomas Keller Oreo), although I definitely can't get those at Trader Joe's...

              C'mon now...comparing a commercially made widely distributed cookie to something from Bouchon Bakery?

                I agree, it's not really a fair comparison, but when I was evaluating the JoJos I was comparing them to regular Oreos, and they were just "meh" to me; but when I ate the TKO, it was amazing compared to regular Oreos. So really, I was comparing both variations to the standard (Oreos), not to each other, although maybe I should have made that more clear in my first post. But if you like JoJos and happen to find yourself in Yountville, definitely try a TKO!
