In your most fabulous food fantasies, you might have imagined this sweet delight. One of the most fun things about working for Trader Joe's is the ability to turn fantasy into reality. That's exactly what we've done with the creation of Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Ice Cream.
More or less exactly what you think it might be - yet surpassing your ice cream imagination - Cookie Butter Ice Cream begins as humble-yet-rich vanilla ice cream, carefully crafted using fresh cream from the Midwestern United States and Madagascar vanilla extract. Pieces of Belgian Speculoos cookies are blended into the ice cream, and then comes the pièce de résistance, the not-so-secret ingredient that makes all of our ice cream wishes come true - a ribbon of Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter. This is a masterwork of ice cream craftsmanship, a miracle of milk transformation. The instant you take your first bite is a moment you'll remember (we definitely remember ours). Scoop it onto a cone, into a bowl, or into your blender for a Cookie Butter MilkshakeTJ. We're selling each 32 fluid ounce carton (that's one quart) for $4.49, every day. You'll find it in our freezers.
