Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Ginger Cats Cookies

First, let's address the burning question here.  Yes, these cookies are for people, not cats.  The cookies are shaped like cats.

So, today's review is of Trader Joe's Ginger Cats Cookies (for people).  They are labeled as "lowfat" with no artificial flavors or preservatives.

A 16-ounce tub of cookies will set you back $2.79.

A mom's (my) take: Well, these are certainly cute, especially if you're a cat person like I am.  I enjoyed the flavor of these cookies quite a bit...they have a very strong ginger and spice taste...and a little heat.  The ingredients list on the package lists "ground red pepper;" I love the spice, but I wonder if little ones would.  The texture is what I wasn't crazy about.  They were so crunchy, I felt like they were over-baked.  I was expecting, and would prefer, that Teddy Graham-type texture here. 
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: Of course, I love the cats (having two myself), and the taste is that of a home-baked, authentic gingerbread cookie. I italicized ginger because it is spicy. Really spicy. It does take a minute to deliver the kick, so you have a bit to enjoy the buttery, well-baked taste.

Trader Joe's Ginger Cats Cookies: spicy!


  1. These are actually what I miss the most about no longer being near a Trader Joe's.

  2. I'm going to have to pick these up the next time I go! You've sold me!!

  3. I like them, but my three year old says, "No mom, don't buy the spicy ones!"

  4. Here's where we differ....I LOVE really crispy cookies because I'm a dunker...milk, coffee, tea, whatever. I dunk everything. These sound like they'll hold up well in a hot cup o' joe, while still getting soaked thru & thru.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Happy baking! :)
