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!!]
toast, oatmeal, ice cream, on top of cookies, mail to me…
Definitely going to have to keep an eye out for this here in KC!
they have had for a few weeks in KC, I saw it at both Leawood and on Ward Parkway. Check the shelf on the back wall!
Mental note to order a case.
I am sure you will do something amazing with it. Or just sprinkle it on your bacon.
P.S. I think this would be great on the rim of a yummy cocktail. Let my true colors shine.
When you figure it out let me know. All I’ve figured out is how to grind it in my mouth.
That would make amazing whipped cream!
Garnish for cookies! Garnish for coffee. Like sprinkles on cupcakes. or on top of ice cream. Or all of the above.
I don’t have a Trader Joe’s!!!!! How will I live. Omg, I want those so badly!
I dunno – but I bought it too!!
Open top & grind delicious sugary, coffee & chocolaty goodness into mouth for 25 minutes & repeat til desired consistency/sugar/caffeine coma has been attained. =)
Hmm grind on top of a sweet bread before baking??
Ooh, I wish we had Trader Joe’s!! That would be so much fun to experiment with! Wonder if I could find it on Amazon… hmmm….
I made some caramel cupcakes with caramel buttercream last wk & this would have been great on top for sprinkles
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.
Ive been on that bandwagon for about 3 months. LOVE IT!! Glad you got it!
I bought this a few weeks ago and kind of forgot about it (I’m in shock.) I’ll be checking your site for ideas!
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 would’ve posted about it earlier had I been able to find it! I seriously have driven the 45 mins to my TJ’s multiple times a week just looking for it!
I grinded it alllllllll over a loaf of banana bread before I put it in the oven. YUM
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.
Maybe not sugar, chocolate and coffee beans together.
YUUUUUUUMMMM! I’m going tomorrow to scout for some of that! DEEEElish!
On toast??? On vanilla cupcakes?
I didn’t know such a thing of beauty existed. Too bad the nearest Trader Joe’s is oh, about 356 miles away! Le sigh.
I want this NOW!!!!!! (…..screaming like a 4 year old in the toy isle!)
OH MY GOSH!! That is seriously the most exciting thing ever!!!!
Holy Moly. Tilt back head, open mouth, place grinder directly over, and twist.
I’d just grind it into my mouth. And maybe put it on every kind of cupcake there is.
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.
I blogged this a couple weeks ago. My favorite use so far is over plain vanilla bean ice cream.
Sugar-Chocolate-Coffee-Bean Toast….made like cinnamon toast. :-)
I put a few twists in my coffee…yum.
It also is a god topping for plain greek yogurt w/ some vanilla extract in it…
um…’god’? Maybe…but for sure…’good’
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!
Mine JUST started carrying it! Others have had it for a few months!
Thanks for reminding me that I can’t have that grinder. Who the heck puts wheat in a spice grinder!?!? WTF!
OMG you are going to think I am SUCH a creep, but at the store when I looked at the ingredients, I was absolutely shocked that was in there and then thought about you and how you couldn’t have it. I’m so weird.
OMG I do not think you a creep – that made me love you about 10913098120938210938247038123x more.
I love it ground over greek yogurt and oatmeal. I am sure you will come up with something much more creative though!
My TJ’s doesn’t carry this yet, but I will on the look out for it! I am shocked that it contains wheat (per the above comment and response from you). Why add wheat to sugar, coffee and chocolate???
I know!! I’m thinking it has to be something to keep the stuff preserved and grindable maybe?? And Kim! I was just thinking about you. Wait until you see the recipe I made tomorrow using the cook’s illustrated cookies!
Can I just confess right now that I won’t be able to sleep well tonight thinking about what recipe you are posting tomorrow morning? Hmmm…I am trying to guess what it will be! Be still my heart! ;-)
I saw this a couple weeks ago and asked my sister what to do with it. her suggestion: poundcake. my addition: ice cream :)
A garnish for a Chocolate-Coffee Cream Milkshake! Or maybe as a sugar-rimmed Espresso Martini! I need to buy this glorious find.
What is its purpose?
That’s what I’m trying to figure out!
Very exciting!!! Can’t wait to see what you make with it!
I had no idea something like this existed! Holy heck, I say just grind it into your mouth.
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.
Those look so awesome. I must have.
Now I wonder where in Canada I could find them? Must go on a mission!
WHAT. As if I wasn’t angry enough that there is no TJ in my area, let alone my entire STATE (FL). That I’m aware of…
WHEN OH WHEN WILL TJ Make it over here?!?!?!?
well although I cant have this right now because of show prep (WAH) the man at trader joes told me that it is insanely delicious on buttered toast!
I’ve used that in so much stuff–ground into my coffee, on top of french toast/pancakes, in brownie mix, yogurt…
Sugar chocolate coffee cookie dough ice cream!!!
-Erin’s husband (after a couple a’ beers)[but still a good idea]
Everything! It’s fantastic on oatmeal and ice cream!
Damn it!! Now I have to go to TJs.
I love all of their novelty items. I wish we had one closer!
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.

Hey hey! You found me.
