Trader Joe's Cookie Thins--Triple Ginger
Given how much I liked the two other varieties in this cookie line--Meyer lemon and toasted coconut--there was little doubt that I would like these, too. The only question was, how much?
The answer: a lot.
Because of my impaired sense-memory, I couldn't be sure whether I liked them more or less than what I consider the all-time TJ's cookie champion, Triple Ginger Snaps, so I decided that I would just have to make the sacrifice for my readers of buying and eating another tub of the latter, so that I could sample the two contenders side by side. The things I have to do for you people!
After doing so, I still can't decide which I like better. They're as different as two ginger cookies could be. These are light, thin, and delicate. The Triple Ginger Snaps are thick, kind of tough, and in-your-face with their ramped-up ginger flavor and hunks of actual chewy ginger. They're completely different approaches to making a ginger cookie--almost polar opposites. But going back and forth between them, I couldn't find a clear preference. They're both just superb in their own ways.
Therefore, since I like them just as much as the reigning champion, they must be inducted into my Top Ten list (which, as regular readers know by now, is not limited to ten items).
Will I buy it again?
