I've done the tasting and the testing and the reviewing; here are my picks. And as someone who runs the Instagram account @BlackGirlsInTraderJoes, I feel very qualified on this!
This pie is tart and light, and the graham cracker crust is sheer perfection. And it has the true, natural color of the Florida key lime. Tip: top it with coconut whipped cream!
How does this even make sense? I’m not sure. What I do know is that you are still getting the textbook cheesecake texture without any dairy!
As a huge fan of all things citrus in the summer months, these lemon bars hit the spot. They’re a timeless classic and Trader Joe’s does it right!
Chocolate-covered strawberries don’t have to be saved for Valentine’s Day! Grab a box of these dark chocolate-covered strawberries for when you need a chocolate fix.
Do you really want to bake an entire apple pie when it’s 80-plus degrees outside? I know I don’t. I heat these up and add my favorite vanilla ice cream.
A layered raspberry, lemon, and strawberry Popsicle: Seems pretty standard, right? Dunk it in a glass of Champagne, though, and you have a special treat.
Some of my favorite memories involve chasing that ice cream truck. Now I can indulge with a cone (or two) just by opening my freezer door.
The name says it all: A crispy brownie sandwiches the coffee ice cream for a sweet treat that’s, um, perfect for breakfast.
If you love cookie butter, you have to try this. Not only is it great on its own, but it also makes for an incredible milkshake.
Another win for the lactose-intolerant and vegan community! I love this in a root beer float.
