After school on Friday, I asked Jack to stop by Trader Joe's for pizza dough for our Friday night pizza ...and to pick something to review. I always love to see what he picks out on his own.
Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Butter Waffle Cookies. The cookies come in an 8.8 ounce box and cost $2.79. TJ's describes these as an "all-butter traditional biscuit."
A mom's (my) take: Crispy, crunchy, buttery...as simple as cookies come, but oh so delicious. These waffle cookies are fairly large in size, but you can eat 3 for 150 calories. Wahoo! Mix them in ice cream, slather with Nutella, or eat them plain...they're darn good.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: I love these so much! The consistency is very solid, and isn't too crunchy or hard to bite despite the cookie's thinness. My favorite thing is, of course, the taste: a combination of waffle cones and shortbread (hence the "butter" in the title) cookies. I don't see how there can be anything wrong with that. The flavor isn't too forceful either, which leaves you free to focus your taste buds on whatever aspect of the cookie you'd like. I would greatly appreciate a lifetime supply. :)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
