We’re obsessed with Trader Joe’s desserts, and it’s hard not to see why. From frozen chocolate lava cakes, to ice cream sandwiches, to cookies, there’s a treat for whatever your sweet tooth is craving. However, when talking about the grocer’s stellar sweet treats, we’d be remiss not to mention their baked goods section, full of fresh breads and delicious pastries.

Lucky for us, a new baked dessert is now gracing the shelves and we can’t wait to dig into it all summer long. Spotted by Instagram account @trader_joes_treasure_hunt, the grocer is now selling a Lemon Flavored Mini Sheet Cake for $5.99 per cake, although one commenter on the post did mention that their store was selling it for $4.99.

The lemon cake is both moist and rich in flavor. It’s topped with a lemon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with lemon zest. It’s no secret that citrus is ideal for the warm-weather months, so this new cake would make the perfect cap to any spring picnic, summer barbecue, or even just as a sweet and fresh addition to your afternoon tea.

Commenters on the post expressed their joy over the new treat and shared plans to pick it up for themselves during their next grocery trip. “Adds to list,” wrote one commenter. “Definitely can’t wait to try this,” said another.

If you do happen to add one of these cakes to your cart, but don’t want to wait to get home to give it a try, don’t forget that Trader Joe’s checkout counters are stocked with utensils. There’s nothing quite like a few bites of cake to make the trip home more bearable. 

As with all Trader Joe’s products, you never know when they’re going to disappear, so if you’re a citrus-lover, you’ll want to grab this when you see it.
