Every now and again you get hit with a product that is a spin-off of an original. And every now and again that spin-off is better than the original. That seems to be the case here with Trader Joe's Neapolitan Joe Joes Ice Cream.
So imagine an ice cream that swirls cookies and cream, with vanilla cookies that almost eat like cake bites.
Now, throw in a solid fudge swirl. But wait, I'm not done. A balance to the cookies and cream is a rich and intense strawberry ice cream.
That is what is in this little container.
As much as I was expecting just bits of the seasonally available Neapolitan Joe Joe's to be mashed in like so many other cookies, I was pleasantly surprised.
Nope, this played with the best elements of cookies and cream, fudge swirl, and strawberry ice cream. It wasn't done haphazardly. It was a recipe that was clearly thought out and better yet was well executed.
Now, when I say it is good, it had me looking at the label and saying, "well, if I do eat this it's only half the calories I need in a day."
And my biggest complaint is that this container only comes in at 16 ounces. This is probably one of those flavors that should be available in quart size.
For $2.99 it's a pretty good value for the size too. There is one key difference between the Neapolitan Joe Joe's is that both are seasonal. So if you love it stock up because Fall and pumpkin season are right around the corner.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe's Neapolitan Joe Joes Ice Cream again.
