Trader Joe's Mini Mint Ice Cream Mouthfuls
Ever wished there was a really good bite sized mint ice cream cookie snack? Then you have clearly not been to Trader Joe's!
These little snacks are the size of an Oreo, and have mint ice cream sandwiched between two cookies.
The cookie layers taste a lot like an Oreo -- but they have the texture of an ice cream sandwich wafer. They're soft and smooshy. Paired with the ice cream, they are really good. Eaten on their own, they're a little oily...but just don't eat the layers separately, and you'll be fine.
The ice cream is a very smooth mint, with a creamy texture. I wouldn't eat the ice cream on its own, either. By itself it's a little toothpasty and doesn't have much in way of mouth feel...but it does have the Universe's tiniest chocolate chips. And how could you not love the Universe's tiniest chocolate chips?
The cookie and the ice cream separately are just kinda "meh," but paired together they're pretty good. So it's kinda like an edible version of Hall & Oates. (Unless you don't like Hall & Oates, in which case think of any other musical duo that you do like. Hey, I can't do everything here.)
