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!!]

    I am sure you will do something amazing with it. Or just sprinkle it on your bacon.

    When you figure it out let me know. All I’ve figured out is how to grind it in my mouth.

    Garnish for cookies! Garnish for coffee. Like sprinkles on cupcakes. or on top of ice cream. Or all of the above.

    Oh, you wont regret it! So far I’ve learned its good on oatmeal, ice cream and yogurt. Its also good if you just grind it straight into your mouth.

    On top of whip cream in coffee!! On buttered toast. On top of vanilla bean frosting. I have been wondering when you’d post about this…can’t wait to see what you come up with. Happy grinding! (that sounds strange. Oh well. You know what I mean).

    I get the Trader Joe’s frozen steel cut oatmeal and lavish this stuff on it. I’m on my 2nd bottle in 2 weeks. I’m an addict. OMG. They scared me the other day and moved it away from the grinders and next to the coffee. I’m OK with that now that I know where it is…I’m grabbing SEVERAL jars next trip.

    I think you should bake up some mocha brownies, then grind on an obscene amount of this magical sugar dust, and then broil it in the oven until the sugar melts. Then you’ve got a crunchy/coffee/chocolate/almost caramelized topped rich fudgy mocha-y brownie. Um yes please I’ll have 12.

    What!?!?! I just went to Trader Joes two days ago and didn’t see this. I’m going to have to look again. I bet this would look nice grinded over a frosted cupcake. In fact, my mom has a KILLER coffee crunch cake recipe…basically fancied up devils food cake, with a whipped cream/coffee frosting, and homemade coffee candy crushed and crumbled on top. I’m going to have to try it with this stuff!

    Step 1: place inside a box/padded envelope.
    Step 2: write my address on it.
    Step 3: visit your local post office and instruct them to the aforementioned address.
    Step 4: sit back, relax, and know that you have made me very, very happy.

    Funny you should mention this, my MiL picked this up the other week for me. She said she saw it while at Trader Joe’s (she practically lives at the place :) ) and thought of me–I thought that was sweet. I’m not sure what to do with it either. I’ve added it to the top of some muffins though. Still searching for the perfect match for it though.
