Cookie Butter: Trader Joe's Hatches Evil Plot to Cause Addiction

Trader Joe's
You have been warned.
Never has the Cook E. Monster experienced such a loss of self-control as when confronted with a fresh jar of Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. The only responsible thing to do is to pass the information. This is in hopes that we will not be the only lonely addict who instinctively knows that this spread, made from crushed Belgian biscuits, will be terrific on top of lots of things yet we'll never know this firsthand because it won't make it past the spoon.

Freeland Foods' Ginger Snaps Super Cookies.
Mountain View's Freeland Foods offers a number of quality raw and gluten-free snack items, including bars, chips, and chocolate, but one product is particularly addictive.

If you told Cook E. Monster that you had a cookie that was sugar-free and made with sprouted items that is difficult to stop eating, you would have received a huge side eye; health cookies aren't sexy. But Freeland's Ginger Snaps Super Cookies magically manage to deliver. They're made of coconut, sprouted sesame seeds, dates, and organic ginger powder -- that's it.
