It’s time for the reveal of Trader Joe’s annual holiday items and according to the Inside Trader Joe's podcast there are 473 products being introduced with 66 of them totally new and one of them with a “boozy” feature. People has a list of nine sweet treats that stand out that are worth checking out in their opinion.
- Handmade Candy Cane with Cocoa Center – made with peppermint oil, tapioca syrup and red radish for the bright red color filled with a cocoa crème-filling.
- Boozy Macarons – the Parisian-style tan macarons are flavored with rum, the orange are flavored with Cointreau and the purple with French XO brandy. The spirits are stirred in the batter for a “boozy” treat.
- Mini Chocolate Mousse Desserts – these combine a shortbread base with chocolate mousse, dark chocolate ganache and a sprinkle topping. They come frozen but just defrost them in the fridge and serve.
- Mini Hold The Cone! Peppermint-Flavored Ice Cream Cones – a favorite returning item, these are chocolate-lined cones filled with pink-tinted peppermint ice cream so the ice cream can’t leak out from the bottom.
