If you are looking at the package of Trader Joe's Strawberry Shortcake Sandwich Cookies and think they look familiar you are correct. These are the summer seasonal variety of the popular These sprinkles walk into a sandwich cookies. So in Trader Joe's new food news, this is a new and limited-run product.
While the cookies might remind you more of chocolate chip cookies, these butter cookies have bits of freeze-dried strawberries in them which gives them that strawberry shortcake feel.
The cookie is quite crumbly so you'll want to make sure you have a plate to catch the crumbs.
Each cookie is flaky and butter with a hint of strawberry. The strawberry filling is about as generous as a regular oreo. Not a double stuff one either. But the flavor of the buttercream is pretty good.
It does taste like strawberries. And overall this does remind me of the strawberry shortcake minus a dollop of cream and fresh strawberries. It had a nice biscuit-like cookie and a good strawberry flavor.
This is packaged in a narrow box. A foil wrapping covers the box. The tray of cookies that are two sandwiches cookies wide.
In each box, there are three rows of cookies for a total of six cookies altogether.
The outside design of the package looks a lot like Trader Joe's seasonal Sprinkles Walk into a sandwich cookie. You can see the packing here:
Overall, this box will cost you $2.99 and you get six sandwich cookies altogether. Not a bad deal. This is on par with the quality of the seasonal sprinkle sandwich cookies that are offered. It has a good strawberry flavor in both the middle and the cookie.
Would I buy this again? While I think Trader Joe's Strawberry Shortcake Sandwich Cookies is good it isn't worth a repurchase for me.
This is also a seasonal item so if you find that you really like this product then be sure to stock up.
