Trader Joe’s Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches Review

Trader Joe's Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches

While Trader Joe’s make a whole lot of frozen meals that need to be cooked, they also dabble heavily in the wonderful realm of ice cream. And, since ice cream is a frozen food, it falls under our review-writing jurisdiction. That’s a good thing, because it means we get to try out treats such as the Trader Joe’s Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches.

These tasty little treats come four in a box, and each one is individually wrapped. This is perfect for people who want to grab a single snack and keep the rest safely stashed away in the freezer for later.

The cookie portion here is soft and a little bit chewy. It actually reminds us a little bit of the cookies you can buy at Subway (if you can get them when they’re still fresh). That’s not a bad thing at all, and it makes a pretty good outer portion for this sandwich.

But it’s the filling that’s the real treat — the sweet, delicious ice cream. And, as you can see in the picture below, these suckers are loaded up with chocolate chips.

Of course, looks can be deceiving, and the looks here are definitely on the deceptive side. The chocolate chip content is just decoration for the outer shell of the ice cream — once you bite past it, the rest of the filling is pure vanilla ice cream. That’s not exactly a bad thing, as that chocolate chip density wouldn’t work if it were consistent all the way through the ice cream. That would be just too much.

Each sandwich contains 440 calories (190 from fat), which means you’re probably not going to want to eat more than one at a time. Of course, these are so rich that you’re better off just eating one at a time — any more than that can start to feel overly gratuitous.

The Trader Joe’s Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches are a frozen treat that will make you smile. While the word sublime might be a bit of an exaggeration here, we really like these. We’re definitely going to pick up more of them the next time we spot them at our local Trader Joe’s.

Love the sublime ice cream sandwiches but sometimes they are skimpy on the chips. Wonderful taste. Seem to be out of them a lot?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
