April 28th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
We've been selling these cookies since the beginning of time. Okay, maybe not that long, but pretty close. Their name, Dress Circle, is a reference to the level of seating in a theater or opera house, above the orchestra, where "evening dress" was generally required. But contrary to what you may be thinking, these cookies do not come with bow ties and high heels. Rather, they are just so good that they'd be right at home in that elegant environment.
Trader Joe's Dress Circle Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies are bite-size cookies that definitely live up to their Crispy Crunchy moniker. They're delish dunked in cold milk or hot tea, and downright dazzling crumbled over your favorite ice cream (we're partial to French Vanilla). You can even crush them to make a choco-riffic pie crust - similar to a graham cracker crust, but choco-riffic.
For cookies so good they'd be welcome in the Dress Circle, you might expect a higher price. But at Trader Joe's, we're all about value, even if you're in white tie and tails, so we're selling each 18 ounce tub for $3.99, every day.
