Trust me when I tell you there are new items that I want to pass over because I don't think I could put enough words to accurately describe them. When I saw Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Muffins, I was debating on whether or not to review them even. But after a bite, I knew I had to.
Taste and review
This follows the basic formula for a muffin. But oh so much better.
I didn't actually think I could get excited over a muffin. I actually figured I'd try one and put the rest in the freezer for another day when a 400+ calorie breakfast was a better idea.
For $3.99 there are four jumbo sized muffins (ok, not Costco sized jumbo, but the size you would get if you had a jumbo muffin tin at home) which makes these just under $1 each.
An inexpensive breakfast overall. But the magic starts with the baking paper. I don't know about you, but the ridged baking cups seem to get cemented on to the product all too often. These papers took less of the original muffin with them.
And then there was the first bite. The chocolate chips had kept their texture adding a soft crunch. But the magic here is the coarse sugar on top. As much as I wanted to call this an unnecessary addition of sugar, I loved it. It added such a pleasant bite that the muffin I had cut into half suddenly needed to be consumed entirely.
I even pondered seconds.
Now, a day later that magical sugar on top is a bit softer and less crunchy. So if you want to best enjoy these magical muffins, then share them with your friends and family.
But all in all, these were pretty darn good chocolate chip muffins. Yes, you could easily make these at home, but it's August and there is no way turning on an oven would be welcome event as it is still summer time.
If you want some freshly baked yummies, then Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Muffins are totally worth a try.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Muffins again.
