Sweet on Trader Joe's: Non-Dairy Mint & Chip Bon Bons

Trader Joe's: Dairy Free Mint & Chip Bon Bons review


On this last weekend before Christmas, we're reviewing one more TJ's holiday offering: Non-Dairy Mint & Chip Bon Bons. I'm currently in the middle of making (and eating) cookies and treats for neighbors and friends, but sometimes you need a palate cleanser, right?

The bon bons are a frozen coconut milk-based treat. They come 8 to a box...and I can't tell you the price because I cannot find my receipt. (I can't blame that on 2020, can I?) The interior box keeps them intact and pristine. Aren't they pretty?

One thing I love about Trader Joe's is that sometimes on the back of the box, the nutrition info for the ENTIRE BOX (not just a serving size) is listed. This makes me so happy for some reason.

Let's review Trader Joe's Non-Dairy Mint & Chip Bon Bons:


She said: These bon bons are the perfect size - just small enough, so you don't feel stuffed, but large enough to feel satisfied. I love the smooth and shiny chocolate coating; it has a great snap when you bite into one. The "ice cream" is minty and refreshing. Creamy for a frozen dairy-free frozen treat with a mint chocolate flavor similar to a frozen York Peppermint Pattie...but not quite as bracingly minty. I didn't not, however, get any chips in mine. I feel deprived. And like I need another. 

Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars


He (Jack) said: These are great! The coconut milk base brings with it a lightness and freshness that you might miss with traditional ice cream, making you feel slightly less bad about eating more than one...the chocolate layer is surprisingly robust and milky too, leaving a good bit of it to melt in your mouth at the end. Awesome!

Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

  1. What I can't figure out is why the math on the box is wrong. If one 20g bonbon is 70 calories, wouldn't 8 bonbons (160g) be 560 calories, not 580?
