Ultimate Vanilla Wafers

May 2, 2011 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.

You might remember vanilla wafer cookies from your childhood.  Fond memories, perhaps, but the cookies themselves don't stand the test of time.  We tried; disappointment followed.  We knew that if we were to offer vanilla wafer cookies they would have to meet a much higher standard than simple nostalgia.  And thus, Ultimate Vanilla Wafers were born.

Trader Joe's Ultimate Vanilla Wafers share only their shape and concept with the supermarket variety vanilla wafers.  Ours are made with real butter and eggs with no artificial ingredients of any kind.  Most importantly, we use so much real vanilla that you can actually see vanilla bean flecks in every cookie.  Enjoy these all natural cookies with coffee, tea or, to heighten the nostalgia, your favorite fruit juice.  Pair them with ice cream – make mini ice cream sandwiches or crumble them atop a bowl of your favorite flavor.  Looking for a quick pie/tart crust?  Pop these in your blender or food processor and dessert will truly be an affair to remember.  Remember this price:  $3.99 for each 13 ounce tub.
