When it comes to dessert, Trader Joe’s always knows how to deliver. Just look at the Chocolate Lava Cakes, Double Chocolate Croissants, and Mini Ice Cream Hold the Cones — the sweet treats at Trader Joe’s do not miss. So, of course, I squealed with joy when I learned about the chain’s latest dessert innovation: a Japanese Soufflé Cheesecake!

Now sold in the freezer section at TJ’s, you can buy a two-pack of Japanese Soufflé Cheesecakes. These crustless cheesecakes are “airy and moist,” making them the perfect light dessert when you want something sweet but not too heavy. They’re made with a mixture of sweet condensed milk and cream cheese, combining to create a light yet rich and creamy texture.

Preparation only requires one step: Thaw the cheesecakes for three hours in the refrigerator. That’s it! Pull them out of the fridge, and voilà! Dessert is served. You can take them to the next level by topping them with homemade blueberry compote or even a salted honey sauce.

You can buy this two-pack of Japanese Soufflé Cheesecakes for $3.29 in the freezer section, but move fast! Trader Joe’s is only offering this dessert for a limited time. If you’re anything like me and love to stock up on your favorite foods before they sell out, I have a feeling you’ll want to make some freezer space to pull out these cheesecakes on those days when you’re craving a little something sweet.

Trader Joe’s shoppers are already stocking up on this sweet treat for later and raving about how good it is over on a @traderjoesobessed Instagram post. “Looks amazing! Can’t wait,” writes one shopper. “OMG I’M RUNNING TO GET THEM,” enthusiastically writes another. “TJ’s did it again,” says a shopper. What else can I say? When it comes to desserts, Trader Joe’s just gets it.
