Trader Joe’s Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars Review

Trader Joe's Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars

We recently tried the Trader Joe’s Fruit Frenzy Bars and we were absolutely blown away. We loved them so much, in fact, that we went back to Trader Joe’s to see what other options they have for scratching the frozen fruit popsicle itch. While there, we found the Trader Joe’s Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars, which seem like they could be the next best thing.

Now, these are quite different from the Fruit Frenzy bars. They’re smaller in size and they don’t come on a stick. They also have a cream side instead of being purely fruit-based.

These come eight to a box, and they’re roughly the size (in width and length) of one of those bars of soap you get at hotels (though quite a bit thicker in depth). Each one is pretty small, but we actually think they’re a pretty good size for a one-off frozen treat.

As far as flavor, the raspberry side is delightfully rich and crisp, and the vanilla cream side balances it out with a creamy-yet-sweet flavor. The two sides are a good pairing, though we think the mango version of these frozen treats does the fruit-and-cream pairing better.

In fact, if we had to pick just one frozen fruit bar, we’d take the Raspberry, Lemon & Strawberry Fruit Frenzy Bars over either of the vanilla cream options. The Frenzy Bars are more refreshing and the stick makes them easier to eat. Still, the Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars are good if you’re looking for a creamier alternative that skips that citrusy snap.

Weirdly, three of these bars is considered a single serving. We’re not sure why TJ’s went with three instead of one, but we feel like a single bar here is actually a pretty decent serving size.

If you eat three bars, you’re downing 210 calories. That means if you just eat one bar, you’re looking at 70 calories, which is totally justifiable for a light dessert. No guilt here!

The Trader Joe’s Raspberry & Vanilla Cream Bars are quite good, though they’re admittedly not as good as the Fruit Frenzy bars. Still, we really enjoy these, and having a box of these chilling in your freezer means you’re well-prepared for those hot summer afternoons.
