Trader Joe’s Chocolate Filled Crêpes Review

Trader Joe's Chocolate Filled Crêpes

Chocolate is one of the most popular flavors in the entire world. Every year, consumers purchase millions of tons of chocolate. The Freezer Meal Frenzy crew isn’t big on sweets, but we still find ourselves drawn to chocolate treats from time to time. For example, we had to admit that Trader Joe’s Chocolate Filled Crêpes looked very tasty when we stumbled upon them in the freezer aisle of our local Trader Joe’s.

Our package contained seven crêpes, and we’re guessing that’s what most packages of this stuff contain. The crêpes are fairly small, but they’re also thick, which means that three or four crêpes should enough for a satisfactory breakfast. Because these are loaded with chocolate, a syrup isn’t necessary.

On the box, there are two different sets of cooking instructions. If you’re in a hurry, you can quickly nuke these in the microwave. If you have a little bit more time, you can slowly heat your crêpes in the oven. We were surprised to find that there wasn’t a significant difference between the oven-cooked crêpes and the crêpes that were heated in the microwave. Even our microwaved crêpes came out heated evenly and cooked to perfection.

Authentic crêpes are light and paper-thin. As you can see in the image above, the Trader Joe’s crêpes are a lot thicker than that — so they end up tasting a little more like a thin pancake than a traditional crêpe. That said, we don’t mind the extra thickness; it’s definitely the right choice for a frozen dish like this one.

The chocolate filling in the crêpes doesn’t taste like chocolate syrup. It’s fairly thick, and it has a slight nuttiness to it that reminds us a lot of Nutella. It’s a little bit sweeter than dark chocolate, but it’s not overwhelming. The thickness of the crêpes helps to balance out that sweetness, leaving you with something that’s easy to eat.

Whether you eat Trader Joe’s Chocolate Filled Crêpes for breakfast or for dessert, these crêpes should definitely satisfy your chocolate cravings. If you’re not huge on sweets, we recommend pairing these crêpes with a nice cup of coffee. No matter how you eat these crêpes, you’ll find a lot to like here.
