If you went to Trader Joe's and didn't pick up a box of Joe-Joe's, did you really go to Trader Joe's? The grocery chain recently launched its latest, limited-time flavor of the cookie for $3.49. The new sweet item features a layer of vanilla crème sandwiched between two cookies that are dusted in cinnamon sugar.

While some Instagram users described the cookies as "addicting," "ridiculously good," and "incredible," one shared, "They actually kind of remind me of dunkaroos from the 90s 😂."

For a spin on traditional pesto, TJ's latest variety, priced at $2.49, fuses the elements of the beloved pasta sauce with tapenade. Last week, @traderjoeslist wrote that the new product "would taste amazing on a chicken sandwich, on a charcuterie board, or with plain pasta," and asked for additional recommendations.

One user commented, "Pesto scrambled eggs are where it's at 🤤," while another one suggested, "Pizza Margherita! I use Naan bread when I don't have pizza crusts on hand. Add pesto, fresh slices or shreds of mozzarella and good quality tomatoes. Maybe some parmesan too."
