You'll find these cookies in the fresh baked goods area at Trader Joe's. In our store, it's in the back of the produce department.
If you're of a certain age (read: much older than Jack), you cannot see a black and white cookie without thinking of Seinfeld.
"If people would only look to the cookie. All our problems would be solved."
~Jerry Seinfeld ...and a good life motto.
A box of 10 Half Moon Cookies will cost you $2.99.
A mom's (my) take: What I couldn't tell until I opened the package was how thick and cake-like these cookies are. They really are like little bites of cake...soft and fluffy. The icing is delicious; a dark chocolate side-by-side with a vanilla glaze. At the very end, I got a little hint of citrus from the cookie. Perfection. Dangerous. I cannot keep these in the house...I don't have the willpower to resist them.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: My favorite part of these cookies is the cookie itself... the consistency is wonderful, and the way it holds everything together is just perfect. The icing and fudge are too heavy and sugary for my tastes, although it's supposed to be that way. There is a great aftertaste, though! :)
Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Trader Joe's Half Moon Cookies: I'm still in shock that Jack didn't give these a 5!!!
