Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches

Trader Joe's review: brownie crisp coffee ice cream sandwiches |

It's been over a month since our last Trader Joe's review! ACK! We have some catching up to do. Maybe another one tomorrow? We shall see.

Trader Joe's review: brownie crisp coffee ice cream sandwiches |

Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches. You'll find these in the freezer section (obviously), and a box of 4 costs $3.99.

A mom's (my) take: These little ice cream sandwiches pack a robust coffee punch. If you can't decide between an espresso and ice cream for a snack, this would be the perfect compromise. The brownie crisps soften around the ice cream, making them a little chewy rather than crisp. The texture is perfect for an ice cream sandwich...without being sticky like a regular ice cream sandwich cookie (not that there's anything wrong with that). The coffee flavor is so strong, that I don't get much chocolate here. Nice size, fun square shape.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: I love these! I think they could easily be called "rustic" ice cream sandwiches, or maybe "morning" ice cream sandwiches, if there were such a thing. I say this for two reasons: first, because of the strong coffee flavor. I don't know if this is because I don't drink coffee, but I thought the flavor was exceptionally strong (not a bad thing!). Secondly, because of the "sandwich" part itself--the cookie is very grainy, and you can really tell that it's there, even though it's not too thick. Maybe none of what I just said made sense, so make sure you take away that these sandwiches are spot-on!
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. Rustic ice cream sandwiches, FTW!!! That's a terrific description.

  2. Yum! Glad they aren't gluten-free, as then, I'd have to buy them!But I can copy theirs!

  3. The coffee ice cream is way too strong and overpowers the brownies...
