The pros: Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Joe Joe's are super chocolatey, rich with a nice balance of candy cane flavor and texture. The peppermint is a compliment to the chocolate and doesn't overwhelm it. Good quality chocolate was used on the outside.
The cons: Only 10 in a package. Each cookie is over 100 calories each.
The verdict: For $3.99 you are only getting 10 cookies in this package. What the Candy Cane Joe Joe's lack in chocolatey flavor this more than makes up for it in a much smaller package.

Would I buy this again? If you know Trader Joe's, there are certain items that are here one day and gone the next. If you like the Candy Cane Joe Joes, which are very similar to double stuff Oreos with a candy cane element to the filling and wished they were more chocolatey then this is the box to pick up.
If you know you are going to make a New Years Resolution involving weight loss, then you might want to limit yourself to just one box of these. They were absolutely delightful even though they were pricier than the regular cookie. If you want them, don't wait. Some of the holiday seasonal items are already sold out at my local Trader Joe's.
If you find you still want them after they have run out, there is a listing for them on Amazon.

Oh my goodness! The clerk was stocking these and told me they were really good and I should try them. They “accidentally” landed in my cart! She was right! I LOVE them! However, there are 16 carbs and 12 g. of sugar per cookie so beware. I will buy them again.
