Trader Joe’s December Edition

Sharing my December haul from Trader Joe’s including some new products and featured Fearless Flyer items like chocolate lava gnocchi, mini cheesecake cones and more. I also have a low carb section towards the end of this post.

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Lava Gnocchi

I was so excited for this new product. It’s so clever. I treated this pasta as a dessert, dusting it with powdered sugar like on the package picture. The gnocchi is filled with sweet liquid chocolate that oozes out when you break it open.

Trader Joe’s Mini Cheesecake Cones

This new product is one of my favorites from this month’s haul. Florentine cookie cones are filled with a cheesecake filling. These are so cute and the perfect bite. I love the crunchy cone and the creamy cheese filling. They are a little sticky, so I recommend keeping the wrappers on the cones.

Trader Joe’s Hold the Corn! Appetizers

This is a play on Trader Joe’s Hold the Cone series. I love corn so I am definitely excited to try out these savory cone appetizers. I haven’t had a chance to try these yet. I will update my post once I do.

Lucy Apples

These apples have a beautiful rose-colored flesh. I love that Trader Joe’s offers unique fruits. I haven’t seen these apples anywhere else. I love the color. The apples are crisp, tart and sweet.

Trader Joe’s Mini Stroopwafel Ice Cream Sandwiches

I missed out on getting these last year because they were all sold out at my local Trader Joe’s. I was excited to finally try them this year since I enjoy stroopwafels.

While I liked the concept and the mini size, these didn’t quite work for me. Stroopwafels are usually best eaten when heated over some coffee or tea. Because these are frozen with ice cream, the soft chewy caramel center of the cookie becomes incredibly hard.

Trader Joe’s Soft and Juicy Mangoes

My family was recently debating which brand of dried mangoes tasted the best. My mom told me her current favorite is this one from Trader Joe’s, so I bought some to try. Indeed, the mangoes are juicy and sweet, similar to some of the Philippine dried mangoes I like.

They do have a lot of sugar added to them though and from the ingredient list, it looks like they have mango juice added to them as well which is why they are so juicy.

Low Carb Items at Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s Black Truffle Butter

It is truffle season and Trader Joe’s has many featured truffle products like this truffle butter. This butter is rich and creamy with specks of truffle. I like adding it to vegetables I’m cooking.

Trader Joe’s Green Goddess Dip

This is a great dip for vegetables! It’s tangy and flavorful.

Trader Joe’s Black Truffle Alfredo Pasta Sauce

I picked this up last month but enjoyed got another one this month because I really enjoyed it. It’s a creamy, rich alfredo pasta sauce made better with the addition of black truffle.

Trader Joe’s Truffle Dip

This is another dip I picked up last month but it’s featured in this month’s Fearless Flyer. I really like this one so I made sure to get another one.

That’s all for now! If you’re looking for more new and seasonal products to try, you can check my January haul or browse last month’s November post or last year’s December post.
