Trader Joe's Triple Ginger Snaps

A few months ago, something led me to this Huffington Post article about the 17 best-selling Trader Joe's products of 2013. The #1 item was Triple Ginger Snaps, which I had not heard of before. I like ginger snaps as much as the next guy, so I made a point of finding and buying a tub of them on my next TJ's run.

The result? Instant addiction.

Triple Ginger Snaps, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love the size. I love the texture (especially those little chewy bits). I love the taste. Hell, I even love the tub they come in.

It is now a rare day that I do not have a container of these on my kitchen counter, beckoning me to eat "just a few" after dinner. In fact, even though it's only 10:30 in the morning as I write this, I think I hear them calling me right now.

Will I buy it again? 

Seriously? You need to ask?

Nina's View 

I bow to no one in my love of ginger. Ginger is excellent. I cook with it a LOT. I like gingerbread, ginger candies, and ginger tea. Heck, I even like redheads.


But these cookies leave me cold. I know—apostasy!!!!! Off with her head!!!!

I cannot account for it. Texture: meh. Taste: okay. Size: fine. Maybe I'd like them better if they were less chewy and more snappy.

Dunno. I am prepared to accept the full force of social opprobrium on this one.


  1. If you like these, be sure to try the gingerbread molasses ready to bake cookies in the refrigerator section. Hint - roll each ball of dough in sugar before you cook them. Warm gingery goodness. Yum.

  2. By coincidence, I bought that very item earlier this week and it's sitting in my refrigerator right now. Will try it in the next several days.

  3. Nina -- You deserve every bit of opprobrium you get! These are great ginger snaps (and the perfect size, to boot).
