Many people are embracing a gluten-free lifestyle these days, either because of gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, and this can often lead to a stressful time shopping. While there are a lot more gluten-free products available now than even just a few years ago, they are often expensive and disappointing. This is especially the case when looking for sweet treats.

These days, there’s a new contender on the shelves — Trader Joe’s Super Chocolatey Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough. It retails for $4.99 and comes ready-to-bake. Cookie dough is a classic, so needless to say, this is an exciting development!

The news was initially leaked on Instagram by @TraderJoesGeek, and the excited reader response was immediate. “Cannot wait for this!!!” read one comment while another simply posted “I need this!”  While some comments were hopeful for other flavors and varieties, most were just eager to get the new treat in their cart as soon as possible.

The Super Chocolatey Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough makes 12 cookies, which makes it perfect for feeding a group as an after-school snack or saving it for dessert for your next dinner party. Of course, since the dough is so easy to pop in the oven or air fryer, one might just keep it on hand to make one cookie at a time, whenever the craving hits. There’s no negative in that plan!

While Trader Joe’s offers many popular gluten-free products, from pizza crusts to cookies and muffins, this is the first ready-to-bake cookie dough we’ve seen there in the gluten-free category, and we’re excited to see how it turns out.
