This was an impulse buy on my last trip to Trader Joe's, when they had a bunch of these boxes strategically, temptingly placed in the checkout lane. I succumbed to their wiles. But I'm happy to have found them. They have quickly become one of my favorite TJ's cookies.
They're intensely lemony, crunchy, and oh-so-thin. Sweet but not too sweet. It's easy to eat a lot of them but not actually consume a lot of calories.
I love them. I'm tempted to push them straight onto my Top Ten list. But I'm going to hold off for a while and see if I still love them as much after a cooling-off period. [Edit: I continued to love them just as much after a second box, so they did indeed make my list.]
For a contrary view, the "Serious Eats" blog says this:
Will I buy it again?
Eagerly. The blog post quoted above has also given me to understand that the Cookie Thins line includes two other flavors: coconut and ginger. Wanna guess what I'll be buying on my next TJ's trip?
