Trader Joe’s has given us plenty of delicious new reasons to get our eat (and drink!) on in the last year, including cauliflower pizza (yum!) and coffee milk. Your favorite grocery store is upping the temptation game even further, however, with yet another new treat, and this one caters to our sweet tooth: frosted sugar cookies!
The grocery chain is now selling the sugary, cake-like desserts, because, “As the saying goes, a sugar cookie a day keeps the doldrums away. Or, that’s how it should go. Because it’s entirely true.”
As with most things Trader Joe’s, these aren’t your average run-of-the-mill cookies. While they still boast an ultra-soft base made of flour, sugar, margarine, eggs, and butter, slathered with cream-colored frosting and dusted with rainbow sprinkles of green, blue, yellow, and pink, they’re dyed using fruit and vegetable extracts instead of artificial coloring (meaning you shouldn’t feel too guilty about eating one… or five).
You can get them in a box of 10 for just $3 (that’s just .30 a cookie!), making them a far more affordable indulgence than, say, a gourmet cupcake, and at just 160 calories per cookie (the average cupcake is roughly 450), they’re also better suited for helping you keep those New Year’s resolutions.
Will you try out the new cookies from Trader Joe’s? Tell us @BritandCo!
