Green olives, green limes, Power to the Greens…food and the color green are often found in tandem. And why not? Green is a fresh color that lends its vibrancy to many of our favorite dishes.
It’s such an important color that Pantone, the self-dubbed “global color authority,” has deemed 2017 the year of Greenery. And because we at Trader Joe’s have humbly dubbed ourselves the “tasty food authority,” we’re celebrating 2017 with a new marriage of green and food. Ladies and gentlemen, for the very first time, allow us to introduce Trader Joe’s Matcha Joe-Joe’s!
These cookies are the inevitable Matcha manifestation of our now-iconic Joe-Joe’s sandwich cookies. Between two crunchy, golden, biscuit-y cookies, you’ll find a layer of sweet crème filling, flavored with real Matcha green tea powder.
The slight bitterness of the Matcha is noticeable but enjoyable, balanced with a touch of vanilla extract. The strikingly saturated color of the green tea sweet crème comes from the Matcha powder itself—nothing else is added to achieve its eye-catching hue.
Matcha Joe-Joe’s can be enjoyed much like the other iterations of sandwich cookies on our shelves: dunk them in a TJ's Matcha Latte or a hot cup of TJ's Organic Green Tea, eat and repeat. Crumble them atop a bowl of TJ's Vanilla Ice Cream, or crush them into bits and use as the viridescent base of a cheesecake. Or, simply eat them on their own for a sweet, green tea-flavored afternoon snack.
We’re offering 10.5-ounce boxes of Matcha Joe-Joe’s for $2.99 each, but only this summer. Consider this your green light to head to your neighborhood Trader Joe’s and pick up a box while you can—supplies are limited!
