Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Butter Almond Thins

Welcome to the 2nd installment of our Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays!

This week, kiddo & I review one of his most requested TJ's sweets: the Belgian Butter Almond Thins.

Trader Joe's describes these as "all-butter traditional Belgian biscuits."  They run $2.79 for a 7.05 ounce box...approximately 8 servings per box.

The cookies are very thin and delicate, crispy, and definitely buttery.

My Take:  OK...I love that these have 6 ingredients and no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.  That said, though, these aren't my favorite.  They're good, but not my cup of tea.  If you're a shortbread cookie lover or love those "butter cookies" in the tins at Christmastime, you might really enjoy these, though.  I, on the other hand, was tempted to slather them with Nutella.  
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kiddo's Take: I don't know what world she's in, but these are delicious. Their thinness makes it feel like they melt in your mouth, and the almond flavor comes out very strong, leaving you with a sweet and enjoyable aftertaste. (Caution: I could eat an entire box of these in 5 minutes, so be careful.)

Trader Joe's Belgian Butter Almond Thins: split decision!



  1. LOL- Well, at least they won't be languishing on the shelf in your house- SOMEONE loves them! Happy Easter weekend to you! xo Diana ps. If you get the chance pop by my blog and sign up for my giveaway. (if you already have just ignore me- I am brain dead tonight...or I guess it is morning)

  2. I'm looking for those on my next trip to Trader Joe's. I love these reviews!

  3. I'm with the kiddo. I love those cookies. I never have, but certainly have been compelled to eat an entire box in a day.

  4. I love this.. I have been tempted to buy those...and now I totally will thanks to your guy's review!

  5. Bridget,
    If the Kiddo likes them, then they won't be around long enough to tempt you. I was at Trader Joe's yesterday. I don't go very often because it's out of my way, so I stock up on the White Balsamic Vinegar my hubby loves any time I'm in that area. Happy Easter.

  6. I haven't seen those yet. I am kind of tempted. I will have to be on the look out.

  7. Haha Kiddo is awesome! I would probably eat the whole box, but side with you…just sayin'.
    Now just to move closer to a TJs…hmmm
