I have seen the Trader Joe's Triple Ginger Snaps time and time again but had not picked them up until recently. Truth be told ... I LOVE ginger cookies/desserts. Plus knowing these bad boys are what helps make the fabulously delicious Cookie Butter meant they couldn't be half bad, right?
The label describes the cookies as being "made with crystallized finger, ginger puree and ground ginger." Seems like it'd be an overwhelming amount of spice in a cookie ... but it's really not. The flavor is so well balanced that the cookie offers a very classic almost softer ginger spice while also offering a sweetness you get from baked goods. The cookies themselves are great. They're crispy and crunchy, yet the crystallized ginger really adds a level of uniqueness to it. It provides an almost chewy effect to it, which is noticed when eating the cookie. You get a crunch, but there's a little bit of chewy bits in it which are undoubtedly the crystallized ginger showing through.
These are undoubtedly one of the best ginger cookies I have had (and I have had quite a few). They satisfy the want for sweet, crunchy, and savory all together. They're fabulous on their own while they also compliment a nice cup of coffee/tea splendedly as well.A serving, 6 cookies is 130 calories or 3 points plus values.
