Crunchy Cinnamon Squares

March 26, 2017 in Category: What's New

“Don’t be a square” might be a common way to tell someone to be more adventurous or to get out of their comfort zone, but we’re not sure why “squares” get such a bad rap. If we were the squares in Trader Joe’s Crunchy Cinnamon Squares, we would be overjoyed to be squares—and tasty squares, at that.

You’re probably wondering: how did we make squares so cool, scrumptious, and crispy? Well, small quadrilaterals made of whole wheat and rice flour are baked until insanely crunchy—this is how we put the “crunch” in Crunchy Cinnamon Squares.

Of course, Crunchy Cinnamon Squares couldn’t be called Crunchy Cinnamon Squares without cinnamon. You’ll find the perfect amounts of cinnamon and sugar coating each crispy square. There’s nothing square about this cereal—except the shape, of course.

The classic way to eat these Crunchy Cinnamon Squares would be to pour some in a bowl and douse with a generous splash of milk. If you’re looking to eat outside the box, try sprinkling these sweet squares on top of French Vanilla Ice Cream. You could even use them to make a cinnamon-y version of crispy marshmallow treats.

Call us squares, but true to the Trader Joe’s way we’ve yet again got an outstanding value for you: each 12.2 ounce box of Trader Joe’s Crunchy Cinnamon Squares is only $2.69. Sometimes, being a square isn’t so bad. Eating them is pretty sweet, too.
