Review: Trader Joe's - Mini Stroopwafel Ice Cream Sandwiches

Trader Joe's Mini Stroopwafel Ice Cream Sandwiches feature small caramel-filled waffle cookies sandwiching a layer of salted caramel ice cream.

A 10-fl oz package of 8 ice cream sandwiches was $3.99.

These are about slightly wider than an Oreo cookie in diameter but with a much thicker layer of filling. Rather than individually-wrapped, they come in a tray which can be a problem if you're going through them slowly and have any frost issues with your freezer.

The caramel remained gel-like and chewy from being frozen and were good for a moderately sweet caramel flavor. The waffle cookie portion was mostly soft and chewy with the occasional light crispiness.

The flavor of the caramel is further enhanced by the creamy and fairly dense salted caramel ice cream. The ice cream is light on the salt but delivers on the caramel front.

Overall, Trader Joe's Mini Stroopwafel Ice Cream Sandwiches are a caramel-lovers dream and turned out very well by being strong with the caramel flavor but not so much that it's overly sweet. I probably would have preferred a contrasting ice cream flavor like vanilla or chocolate but that's not a knock on the sandwiches.
