11 Trader Joe’s holiday treats are back for a limited time – including Peppermint Stars and Pomegranate Punch
FROM eggnog to peppermint chocolate, Trader Joe’s has brought a variety of festive foods this holiday season.
However, buyers should be aware that they are only in stores for a short time.
A TikTok Influencer, the splash effectaka Sarah Louise Rhodes, found several holiday-themed foods at Trader Joe’s and people loved many.
“Christmas items are back at Trader Joe’s and these are my favorites,” Sarah said.
1. Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe’s
“Starting with the classic, arguably the classic, the dark chocolate covered peppermint Joe’s Joe’s. They’re a must-have for the holiday season,” she said.
Joe Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint is a sandwich creme cookie with peppermint specks on the outer layer.
The whole cookie is covered in dark chocolate and there are 10 per box for $3.99.
One person commented: “Oooh my sister is gonna love these Joes thanks Joes!”
2. Mini Hold The Cone Peppermint Flavor
Trader Joe’s Hold The Cone ice cream cones aren’t exactly new, but they’re coming out with seasonal flavors.
Her year-round flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and chocolate chips.
But Sarah’s favorite flavor was back in stores for the holidays: “I love these mint flavored Hold The Cones too.”
They cost $3.79 for eight cones and are filled with rich, peppermint-flavored ice cream and a sweet chocolate topping.
3. Ginger spread
Sarah mentioned, “I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m looking forward to it. I think this ginger spread would be great for charcuterie for the holidays.”
Trader Joe’s Ginger Spread is a great addition to liven up your meals and it’s only $3.99
Made in Dundee, Scotland, the spread’s sweet and tangy flavor can give your morning yoghurt or oatmeal a nice kick.
4. Dark chocolate oranges
“These dark chocolate oranges are like nostalgic to me, I love them.”
Nothing beats nostalgia during the holidays as it is the time of year to return home and spend it with loved ones.
Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Orange makes a great gift and it replicates the peel of a real orange as it is wrapped in orange foil.
They cost $3.49 each.
5. Chocolate Covered Gingerbread
The gingerbread cookies are soft gingerbread cookies with nuts and spices.
Each box costs $3.49 and there are seven cookies per pack.
One person commented, “What is gingerbread?”
Sarah replied, “German cooookie.”
6. Fizzy Pomegranate Punch Drink
The seasonal sparkling wine and pomegranate punch drink is a must.
The bubbly drink is richly fruity with flavors such as pomegranate, pineapple, orange and apple juices with a dash of ginger.
“If you want to easily make celebratory cocktails, this pomegranate punch is your best friend,” Sarah recommended.
A pack costs $3.99 and contains four cans each.
“Eggnog is back and I couldn’t be more excited. They also have the oat milk version which I have to try.”
What’s Christmas without eggnog – it’s a classic creamy drink that began as a holiday tradition in North America in the 17th century.
Trader Joe’s has a few flavors of eggnog – the original is rich and flavorful, but they also have a lighter eggnog.
The Light Egg Nog delivers the same creamy texture and nutmeg flavor but with 90 percent less fat and 40 percent fewer calories.
They cost $3.49 each.
Trader Joes O’Nog is a new addition to the seasonal family.
The drink is a dairy-free version of eggnog, but still manages to deliver the same creamy texture with its nutmeg and ginger flavors.
It’s made entirely of vegan ingredients and is only $2.99.
9. Stroopwafel Dutch caramel waffle cookies
The Stroopwafel Dutch Caramel Waffle Cookies are back in stock, but get yours before they’re gone.
The cookies are definitely a staple of Trader Joe’s holiday offering as people love the caramel flavor.
The waffle cookies are made by pressing waffles in a hot iron and then quickly slicing those waffles in half while they are still hot.
Finally, they sandwich stretchy caramel between each slice to shape the cookie.
They’re $3.49 a can, but it’s not on sale year-round, so you better act fast.
10. Old Fashioned Wine-Based Eggnog
“That… interests me and I’m a little bit suspicious because I just didn’t know what it was going to be like,” Sarah said.
This eggnog is only available to adults over the age of 21 and again only during the holiday season.
The wine-based eggnog is a pre-mixed and ready-to-drink wine tail and costs $7.99.
11. Brie en Croûte
“Finally, this brie that’s already wrapped in batter, you just toss it in the oven, perfect for a Christmas party,” Sarah suggested.
Brie en Croûte translates to brie baked in a batter crust, and once baked it has a delightfully flaky finish.
The box of pastries ships frozen and costs $6.99 per box.
