January 8th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
When we first introduced Joe Joe's Sandwich Creme Cookies, cookie lovers quickly came to the same conclusion we'd reached on first tasting -- Joe Joe's were so much better than other, similar cookies, that there was very little basis for real comparison. And so when we've introduced "special" versions of our Joe Joe's (Halloween, Candy Cane), maintaining this standard of quality has always been our top priority. Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's live up to this standard, and, if you're a fan of the chocolate-peppermint combo, will easily surpass your expectations.
The best way to describe these cookies is to deconstruct them. We start with a creamy, peppermint center, studded with candy cane pieces, sandwiched between two chocolate peppermint wafer cookies. The cookies are bathed in deep, rich dark chocolate. The icing on the cake, so to speak, is the generous sprinkling of even more candy cane pieces atop the dark chocolate. These Joe Joe's masterpieces are only available during the holiday season, bringing tidings of comfort and joy to peppermint and chocolate lovers across the land. But don't delay -- when we run out, it will be 2014 until they're once again available at your neighborhood Trader Joe's. Missing these would definitely add a bit of humbug to your holidays.
We're selling each 9.4 ounce box of Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's for $3.99, while they last.
