The Best Frozen Treats at Trader Joe’s to Keep Cool This Summer
It's no secret that we love Trader Joe's. Whether we're shopping for game-day snacks or vegan food, TJ's has what we're craving and for a price that can't be beat. Thankfully, the grocery store's frozen dessert offerings are no less appealing. Any one of these 14 treats will refresh you.
Trader Joe's Gone Berry Crazy ($2): It doesn't get much better than frozen sweet strawberries enrobed in dark chocolate. They're an easy, elegant dessert for summer dinner parties when paired with homemade whipped cream or stirred into softened sweet cream ice cream.
Trader Joe's Lime Fruit Floes ($2): Equal parts tart and sweet, these citrusy ice pops are what you should turn to whenever the thermometer turns red.
Trader Joe's Cold Brew Latte Dessert Bars ($2): The double-whammy of caffeine and cream in these bars will wake you right up on sleepy summer afternoons (or mornings — we won't tell).
Trader Joe's Soy Creamy Mini Vanilla Sandwiches ($3): Vegans can get their fix of nostalgia by noshing on these soy-based mini ice cream sandwiches.
Trader Joe's Hold The Cone! ($3): Mini chocolate-coated ice cream cones make any get-together feel like a party. Depending on the time of year, you can find Hold the Cone! in peppermint, pumpkin ginger, vanilla, and chocolate.
Trader Joe's Coffee Mochi ($3): The textural interplay of these non-dairy coffee mochi is honestly impressive considering the petite size. You'll enjoy a chewy outer layer of mochi, a coffee ice cream layer, and pure liquid chocolate in the center.
Trader Joe's Mango & Cream Bars ($4): Think of these bars as a tropical twist on the old-fashioned creamsicle bar. The floral-fruity mango is even better when balanced by a stripe of dairy indulgence.
Trader Joe's Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches ($4): A true classic, this TJ frozen sweet uses two soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies to scoop up vanilla ice cream. The best part is the mini chocolate chips coating the outside.
Trader Joe's Mochi Ice Dessert ($4): Delightfully gooey mochi holds a pocket of vegan strawberry ice cream (made from coconut milk) inside. Grab two and head to the balcony to eat while watching the sunset.
Trader Joe's Mini Mint Ice Cream Mouthfuls ($4): The combination of minty chocolate and cool ice cream is refreshing and relaxing.
Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Ice Cream ($4): Trader Joe's Cookie Butter is as much a staple for us as milk, bread, and eggs. You know we're sold when it gets swirled into a pint of ice cream.
Trader Joe's Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches ($4): These handheld treats are filled with rich coffee ice cream that honestly doesn't have enough caffeine to prevent you from entering a sugar coma right after.
Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Gelato ($5): One bite of this silky salted caramel gelato and you'll feel like you're wandering the sun-drenched streets of Rome. Luckily, it costs way less than a plane ticket.
Trader Joe's Key Lime Pie ($5): You could thaw this key lime pie, and serve it once the filling is room temperature. Even better? Serve it frozen as an ice cream pie to cool you down when the temps start to skyrocket.
