Mudd Pie

February 10, 2017 in Category: What's New

When one of our Product Innovators announced that she and one of our most trusted dessert suppliers were joining forces to develop a TJ’s version of Mississippi mud pie, we couldn’t have been more thrilled. Any excuse to consume that much chocolate-y goodness is fine by us—and consume, we did.

And when we finally settled on a version worthy of our name, Trader Joe’s Mudd Pie was born. (We added the second ‘d’ for funsies… and to make sure nobody thinks this thing is made out of actual mud. Because that would be gross. And this pie is delicious.)

Mississippi mud pie came about sometime during World War II and was allegedly named for its resemblance to the muddy banks of the Mississippi River. In our version of this Southern classic, we take a chocolate cookie-crumb crust, line it with ooey-gooey fudge, fill it with fudge-swirled coffee ice cream, and top it with a chocolate drizzle and a circle of fudge rosettes.

Dessert historians* (*probably not a real job) may squabble over what makes a mud pie a mud pie, but there are a few requirements that everyone seems to agree upon: it’s gotta be rich, it’s gotta be chocolate-y, and it’s gotta be moist. And our Mudd Pie is certainly all three!

Trader Joe’s Mudd Pie is not only sinfully delicious; it’s sinfully easy to serve. Unlike other frozen pies and cakes, this pie needs no real thawing—simply let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes and slice ’er up! Easy as (mudd) pie.

And as if this thing wasn’t selling itself, we’ve sweetened the deal by pricing each eight-inch, 20.8-ounce Mudd Pie at $6.49. You’ll find this masterpiece of a dessert in our freezer cases.
