Trader Joes Speculoos Ice Cream


Taken from my instagram...


I'm really quite surprised that I haven't seen this ice cream out of stock at my Trader Joe's. Or maybe they just do a good job of restocking the shelves. Anyway, if you haven't hopped onto the bandwagon that is this wonderful ice cream, you are missing out! Probably. But of course, if you're not a speculoos fan or an ice cream fan (gasp), then you can move along and clear the frozen food aisle so the rest of us can get to this ice cream. 


Notice that the first ingredient in this is REAL CREAM. Ain't nobody got time for that artificial stuff. If I'm going to have ice cream, I want the real deal! I like that the speculoos bits are sprinkled throughout the ice cream rather than contained to a handful of big chunks. That way every bite has the gingerbread-y, cinnamon-y/spicy flavor.  And don't you just hate it when half the container of a cookie dough ice cream is just ice cream without cookie dough? Not a problem with this baby. The flavor is so rich and deliciously wonderful, a couple of spoonfuls usually does the trick for me. At $4.49 for a quart, this thing can last me a good while. Which might not be the case for you because be warned, this ice cream is just so good and worth every penny! Good job Trader Joe. You the man. 

One day, I shall bake speculoos cookies with speculoos cookie butter and slather this speculoos ice cream between two cookies and make the ultimate speculoos ice cream sandwich. My English teacher would slam me for the redundancy in that sentence. But it's just so good. 

TL;DR: Speculoos ICE CREAM people. Must try!  9 out of 10

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Sliced French Brioche

"THIS IS LIKE CRACK." No it's not (but it certainly could be), but A says that's how I tend to overhype stuff. The funny thing is that I know I overhype a lot of things, so I actually try not to overhype it. Because I don't want to proclaim, "THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER TASTED" about everything I try. But sometimes I can't help it, and the overhype spills out. Anyway, this is my meager attempt at NOT overhyping this bread (because it is pretty good actually and you should give it a try but I'm trying to restrain myself). 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
