The formal beginning of summer, popularly known as the season for ice cream, will take place the following Wednesday. In spite of the fact that the well-liked frozen treat is consumed throughout the whole year, the rising temperatures make it an even more desirable dish. It is impossible to find a better destination than the frozen food wonderland that is Trader Joe’s if you want new culinary experiences.
The well-known specialty grocery store business is known for introducing new products regularly and reintroducing old favorites. Two of these goods have lately been found in the chain’s freezers.
In the most recent episode of the “Inside Trader Joe’s” podcast, released on June 12, TJ’s marketing officials announced that S’Mores Ice Cream will soon be available. The new flavor is a graham cracker-flavored ice cream with swirls of marshmallows and chocolaty flavorings. It is priced at $3.79 per pint.
According to Matt Sloan, vice president of marketing at Trader Joe’s, “It’s not so much a deconstructed s’more as it is a mixed-up ice cream that is s’more-like in its flavors.” This is even though the name of the flavor could lead customers to anticipate the addition of graham crackers, chocolate, or marshmallows.
Tara Miller, also a vice president of marketing at Trader Joe’s, said that she recalled an earlier edition of the taste that was presented to a tasting panel and had chunks of graham cracker. On the other hand, her observation was that the pieces got “so soggy” and that “you didn’t get that flavor.” As far as Miller is concerned, the taste of graham crackers “really comes through” with the new type.
While tasting the new frozen delight, Natasha Fischer, also known as @traderjoeslist, a fan account for Trader Joe’s, referred to the product as “really good,” praising the ice cream’s smooth and chunk-free smoothness. She said, “If I didn’t know what flavor this was, s’mores wouldn’t come to mind, but it does have a marshmallowy flavor.”
Golden Caramel Swirl Ice Cream is another new product that can be found in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s. This ice cream, also available in the s’mores taste, may be purchased for $3.79 per pint. Featuring swirls of salted caramel and vanilla and chocolate ice cream, this new flavor is referred to as “super-premium,” which is a term that indicates a high-fat content and a low quantity of overflow (air).
If you recognize the name of this product, you are correct; it is the same. Trader Joe’s sold a flavor with the same name in the past, although it was packaged differently from the current version. In the comment section of a recent Instagram picture, @traderjoeslist mentioned that this particular ice cream flavor is now produced using a new recipe. Additionally, TJ’s many followers are accepting the new item.
Someone posted on Instagram, “It is so so so creamy and so delicious,” and they were right. “This looks like Gold Medal Ribbon to Baskin Robbins, my favorite ice cream flavor!” a further addition was made.
