Trader Joe's Hold The Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones--Peppermint Flavored

I've previously described two other versions of this same basic product: vanilla and pumpkin-ginger. But these are the best yet. These are what the evolution of the idea was always leading to. They are the Platonic ideal of mini ice cream cones. The combination of chocolate cones plus chocolate coating perfectly balances the peppermint ice cream.

I ate four (half the box) in one sitting, and had to restrain myself from polishing off the rest.

They're so good, I'm adding them to my Top Ten list.

I assume that this is a limited-time seasonal item, so get 'em while you can.

Will I buy it again? 

Heading to the store today for a refill.


  1. I agree with you about how delicious they are. The chocolate cone and coating with the peppermint ice cream is delicious. Too bad they're a seasonal item. My Trader Joe's sold out of them quickly. I hope TJs will bring them in year 'round.

  2. Is the coating chocolate? The box describes it is "chocolatey" which usually means it isn't.

    1. You made me wonder if I had been fooled. But I just checked the ingredients on the box--and it is.

    2. Well, actually...
