If you have never stepped foot in a Trader Joe’s, then I feel sad for you.
If you’re completely anti-healthy grocery stores, then you might want to reconsider when I tell you that there is a certain product that Trader Joe’s offers to customers that is Heaven in a jar.
At first bite, all you’ll hear is an orchestra of chirping birds and clapping hands and that you finally found that one piece that’s been missing in your life. You may have even found your soulmate in a jar after all (No joke).
Ever had a Speculoos cookie? Or maybe graham crackers? Do you like peanut butter? Do you like cookie dough? What if I told you that you could combine those cookie dough flavors in the spread of peanut butter? Does the idea make your sweet tooth scream of happiness? Get to a Trader Joe’s right this instant and go buy yourself a jar of Cookie Butter!
Yes, that is correct, COOKIE. FREAKIN. BUTTER.
