It FINALLY popped up in my Trader Joe’s.

Now what the heck should I do with it?

[P.S. I’m not holding out on you by hoarding my TJ purchases. I only got boring stuff, like hamburger buns and apples. Oh, and THAT ABOVE!!]

    This is so unfair. Why can’t we have a TJ’s in Canada? :'(

    My mouth literally dropped when I saw this!! Would you grind it on top of a latte? Rim a mocha martini glass? Make a pretty topping for cupcakes or ice cream? (ps, totally looking for this in my TJ’s next week!)

    YES! I have this too and I have no clue what to do with it. Maybe over cupcake size cheesecakes?

    I hope whatever the hell you figure out you blog about it because I can’t figure it out either. I tried it on some buttered toast and dare I say…it was gross. LOL I’m going to try it in some oatmeal and I think on some vanilla ice cream would be really good. I love the idea of grinding it over banana bread before baking! (that’s what she said)

    Grind it over hot chocolate, or a mocha…topped with freshly whipped cream. Or if you bake some brownies or cupcakes, sprinkle it over the frosting.

    Ice cream topping! I say re-name it manna from heaven, but that’s just me. And while I agree vanilla ice cream would be good, I can’t help drooling a little thinking of this on caramel ice cream.

    Figured it would be better to comment here. I live in South Africa and have never seen it before. It say’s product of South Africa? Or am I just crazy? Wish I could find it here, Sounds so yummy

    • Jessica — August 25th, 2011 @ 7:22 am

      I think that’s because it’s a Trader Joe’s exclusive. Unless you have a TJ’s, you won’t be able to find it – at least in that packaging.

    It’s good stuff! I put it on top of coffee – good, but gritty at the end since the coffee beans don’t dissolve like the chocolate and sugar does. I did not care for it on toast. It’s good on oatmeal! I love the idea of trying it on ice cream. I will have to try that one.

    I put in on some fruit, though the coffee-ness tastes a bit weird on some fruit. On top of baked goods on their way into the oven, on pb&j sandwiches. Since I am not a coffee fan, I am hoping they release more varieties of sweet grinders. Say, chocolate, sugar, cinnamon?? Or dark chocolate, milk chocolate, sugar?

    I saw these at TJ’s and HAD to have it! I made a version of your mocha coconut frappuccino cupcakes (used mocha flavored Via [from Starbucks] and coconut butter) and ground this on top of the frosting before the drizzle and they were a HIT! Thank you for the recipe :)

    I keep thinking about this and I’m wondering how it would be on Fage 2% plain yogurt…maybe chocolatize the yogurt and grind this on top? Sounds promising. With crushed cookies sprinkled on it too!

    I grind it onto or into pretty much every dessert that I eat or make-fruit, sorbet, cookies, chocolate cake, cookies, literally anything and maybe cut back a bit on some of the sugar the recipe calls for. It would work for pretty much everything you post on your blog. Oh! and its delicious as part of a rub for grilling meat. Enjoy! I just moved to a TJ’s-less land, and it is sad and difficult.

    Grind it straight into your mouth! Seriously.
    Also good on toast with peanut butter, oatmeal, vanilla yogurt, probably ice cream and I’m sure frosting. I think I’ll grind it on top of cookies and brownies too before they hit the oven…..

      Does TJ’s have a web, where you can order? Might be worth a look.. Or ask.. Beg.. Someone you know with one in their area, they can buy and ship it to ya! Hope this helps!

    I’m sure you have a ton of ideas now regarding what to do with it….I just wanted to say I can’t wait to see what you make! Immediately, I’d sprinkle on a latte. After that, I’d stare at the beautiful jars and think, “I’m so lucky to have them”. Then I’d crack open the cookbooks and see what I can do!

    Dallas, sadly, has not yet received our TJ’s but it is coming soon. I had the joy of visiting one for the first time ever back in July in Chicago. I can’t wait for it to show up here so I can try this out. That is unless someone is feeling generous and wants to buy one and mail it to me?? :D

    I worked at trader joes the last two years. we got that in a while back and we put it on ice cream it was epic! Definitely recommend putting it all over a bowl of Trader Joes Vanilla Ice Cream. Ps you should try the ginger snap ice cream if you haven’t tried it yet!
