Trader Joe's Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits

These "biscuits" are a puzzling thing. They're certainly nothing like what is conjured up in the typical American mind by the word "biscuits." I'm not sure they're even what would be conjured up in the typical British mind by their very different use of the same word, though it would be a closer match.

They're like thin blueberry cookies, but with an unusually strong grain-like flavor. I'm not sure if that is attributable to the rye or the oats (the "biscuits" contain both, second and third on the list of ingredients, respectively), or maybe the combination. But whatever is doing it, the result is a powerful cereal-y/granola-y accompaniment to what is otherwise a nice, distinct blueberry flavor.

And, for me, that's what keeps these from being something I'll want again. They feel too dessertish to be a good breakfast food, and too breakfastish to be a dessert.

Will I buy it again?

I liked these quite a bit. The best part is that the blueberry flavor tastes genuine. I enjoyed them with a glass of soy milk and with coffee.

  1. I love the Trader Joe's blueberry breakfast biscuits! Unfortunately, I was told at my local Trader Joe's that they have been discontinued. I am so disappointed! I agree that these are not cookies. They have 4 or 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving. And, they are no more sweet than other breakfast bars, although people may not be used to thinking of a flat, crunchy biscuit for breakfast. Hopefully TJ's will try them again in the cereal bar section where this product belongs.
