The Best Trader Joe’s Desserts

ice cream sandwiches

The Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches from TJ’s are one of our faves. It will make all of your childhood ice cream sandwich dreams come true, but even better! The chocolate chip cookies encompassing the ice cream are the perfect amount of chewy and crunchy. The ice cream is creamy and delicious and the mini chocolate chips are the cherry on top.


The  Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are by far one of the most popular desserts from TJ’s. Each bite full of rich, creamy and smooth dark chocolate and delicious, creamy peanut butter. These are great for a post lunch snack on the go or a little nightcap. Be careful– it is hard to eat just one.


Another seasonal favorite from TJ’s, although it should be available all season long– the Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Stars are addicting and oh so delicious. Adults get them with their children in mind, but they are too good to share!


The Gone Bananas! chocolate covered banana slices are both delicious and nutritious, right? Something about that banana slice makes you feel like you are doing a good thing by eating it. This simple snacky dessert is a great healthier alternative to ice cream or cookies and equally as satisfying!



The sweet and salty Sea Salt Brownie Petites are deliciously fudgey and rich and come in perfect bite sized pieces. The little chocolate chips dispersed throughout and sea salt sprinkled on top make these so irresistibly good.


The French Macaroons are authentically, delicious and come in a variety of flavors. With everything from apricot and coconut to fig, lemon, salted caramel and pistachio– you can’t go wrong!


What makes the Half Moon cookies so delicious is the cross between cookie and cake. Half vanilla and half chocolate frosting coat a deliciously cake-like, soft and citrusy cookie. These cookies will keep you coming back for more!


The Vegan Cookies & Cream Vanilla Bon Bons are delicious little creamy cookie sandwiches that make a perfect sweet treat. Chocolate and vanilla bean creme coat frozen coconut milk in this yummy delight.


Take your s’mores up a notch with the Cinnamon Graham Crackers, which prove to be equally delicious on their own as well. Enjoy with tea, ice cream, milk or with marshmallows and Hershey’s around the bonfire.


Another fan favorite are the Mochi ice cream bites. Mochi are ice cream wrapped in rice dough. They come in a variety of flavors like green tea, chocolate and strawberry. The Thai Tea Mini Mochi’s are a TJ’s favorite!


Kids and adults alike are obsessed with the Hold The Cone mini ice cream cones. The Chocolate Chip Hold the Cone are especially delicious and there is a dairy-free option as well, Hold the Dairy! Vegan Chocolate Mini Cones. These are great when the craving hits but you don’t want to overindulge!

TJ’s does croissants just right with that flakey, buttery croissant and a rich, creamy chocolatey center. These make for a delicious, indulgent breakfast or treat during the day. These 4 Cheese Pastry Rolls are pretty tasty as well!


Dessert comes in the form of beverages too, and the Instant Boba Kit is a favorite amongst TJ’s fans. This brown sugar, tapioca pearl drink mix is vegan and gluten-free and is even tastier when you can make it right at home!

Scandinavian Swimmers

The Scandinavian Swimmers are colorful, sweet and chewy gummies that are truly irresistible. Flavors include huckleberry, orange, mango-peach and berry and they are all colored with natural fruit colors. Is sour your thing? Try the Super Sour Scandinavian Swimmers.

  1. The mini cones are so good. Have yet to have the sandwiches, may need to get those ASAP. I also love the junior mint candy they make. And the boba tea ice cream is sooo good.

    You covered most of my favorites, but we also love the little bags of gummy bears. They’re .99 cents and the bears are smaller than Haribo, and the flavors taste more natural somehow. This is our go to snack to bring to the movie theater.

    • Oh yum, we will have to try the gummy bears! And great tip to BYO to the movie theater!
