TJ’s ULTRA CHOCOLATE PREMIUM ICE CREAM


RAVE

Trader Joe’s Ultra Chocolate Super Premium Ice Cream is a chocolate lover’s dream. This TJ’s ice cream is super rich, intense chocolate flavor that will satisfy any chocoholic’s cravings — and as a self confessed chocoholic I promise you I know what I’m talking about. This is a really terrific high quality premium ice cream, so good it can be a bit hard to stop yourself from having, “Just one more spoonful.” So be warned. Lest you find the 1 quart tub of ice cream half empty and wonder what just happened? It doesn’t come with a Warning label, but it should.

TIP: Sometimes I will grind up dark espresso beans very finely, and sprinkle a bit of espresso coffee over this ultra chocolate ice cream for one of the world’s best combos, coffee and chocolate. The bitter espresso matching perfectly with, and tempering the rich unctuous chocolate. In fact one might match a scoop of this dark chocolate ice cream with a scoop of the also outstanding TJ’s COFFEE BEAN blast ice cream to make another heavenly combination of coffee and choclolate ice creams. Uh oh, I’m getting cravings, just writing that.

Speaking of tempering, let this soften up a wee bit before eating it to enjoy the full flavor. Like any premium ice cream, it’s dense, not full of air like cheap brands of ice cream.

This super premium ice cream goes for $3.99 for a quart tub.

PRICE INCREASED! 4.29 (APR 2022)

TJ’s Mini Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches


Trader Joe’s 12 Mini Mint Ice Cream Mouthfuls – Mint Chip Ice Cream between chocolate cookie wafers

Tiny. Bites. Yummy. Delicious. Minty. Chocolatey. Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Each one is maybe 2 or 3 bites, so they go down easy (too easy! I could eat 6) They’re not too sweet, the mint ice cream matches perfectly together with the chocolate cookie. Let them stay in the freezer till they are nice and firm and as hard as possible. $4 a box. A box will go fast! 1 mini sandwich is 60 calories.

TJ’s “Peanuts For Chocolate!” ICE CREAM


Trader Joe’s Peanuts For Chocolate! Ice Cream

OMG. This new ice cream offering from Trader Joe’s is to die for (or rather kill you?) It should have a label on it: Warning “Highly Addictive”. I frequently see none in the case, as people are grabbing this stuff up.

Tasting it, I found it overwhelmingly rich but it was hard to stop tasting it, putting my spoon back in and saying over and over “just one more little taste”. A few minutes later I noticed somehow a third of the box had magically disappeared. It’s chocolate ice cream crack.

This ice cream sounds like something Ben & Jerry might have dreamed up: “Chocolate Ice Cream with Chunks of Chocolate Peanut Butter Joe-Joe’s Cookies and Peanut Butter Swirl” – this a very rich dark chocolate fudgey ice cream with textures of stuff here and there (cookie) and the occasional swirl of peanut butter. It didn’t look like the package exactly but no matter. It is simply incredibly delicious and addictive if you are a Chocoholic, like your humble narrator. The combination of chocolate and peanut taste is amazing, and incredibly rich. Listen I am not saying this is the healthiest thing in the world to eat, ‘cuz let’s face it, it sure as hell is not, however every once in a while, you can tell yourself you deserve something special for getting through this difficult period, you know…. So if you want to satisfy your deepest darkest chocolate addiction, this stuff will do it. I promise you though that little pint of ice cream will go way quicker than you imagined. Maybe it’s a good thing they don’t sell this in the bigger quart size.

$3.29 for a pint.

TJ’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


Trader Joe’s Super Premium MINT CHIP ICE CREAM (Mint Chocolate Chip)

Trader Joe’s carries many excellent ice creams and frozen desserts.

This Mint Chip is one of my favorite ice creams they have. It’s deliciously creamy with a great real fresh mint flavor that is cooling and refreshing on a hot summer day. Its loaded with little slivers of chocolate. The color is a natural, creamy white not a fake green that most commercial brands have from adding food coloring. Frankly the reason the box is a bit messed up in the pic as it was so good I didn’t take a picture until after we finished the whole package! We particularly liked this as part of a coffee float with iced coffee! This ice cream, or the wonderful Coffee Ice Cream they sell too!

I find MINT CHIP ICE CREAM is especially great in the summer time with its refreshing minty freshness. Not too mention Spring, Fall, or Winter!

$3.99/1 quart

Trader Joe’s COFFEE BEAN BLAST Ice Cream


Do you love coffee?

Do you love ice cream?

Then this is for you.

OMG amazingly good. Very good coffee flavor.

TIP: I improved it even more by sprinkling a little bit (or more) of very finely ground espresso coffee on top. Double Yum!

About $4 if I remember. Worth it.

Excellent TJ product.
