Trader Joe's Chocolatey Cats Cookies For People

When a package of cookies says both "chocolate" and "cats," how am I supposed to resist it? I'm powerless.

It's a given, then, that I love the package. The cookies themselves? Not so much. They're not repulsive, but they're completely monotonous. They're very much like eating only the cookie part of Oreos, without the filling. That's fine for a couple or three, but very quickly the lack of any complexity or variation in taste and texture causes a sense of "enough already."

They do have these two cute shapes (explaining the "cats" part of the product name) as a redeeming feature:

But then again, you'd get more variety than that in a box of animal crackers.

Will I buy it again?



  1. I haven't yet tried the chocolatey cats cookies (and due to your review most likely won't), but I can vouch for the the regular cats cookies being very tasty and pretty addictive once you open up the tub. They are kind of taste like a cinnamon flavored butter cookie.

  2. You've missed the most important part of the package: "LOW FAT."

    Is there such a thing as a good LOW FAT cookie?
