two cookies and six grams of fat

December 8, 2008

These Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s are super duper delicious, but they made my Ben freak a little. He said, “1 serving is 2 cookies, 6 grams of fat and 140 calories. You can only eat 2 (a day)!” Thankfully, there is no hydrogenation in them, otherwise, they would be off limits. Well, that is my loving dietitian husband for you… 

Anyways, I had to try them after seeing Jen’s post and luckily today T.J.’s was giving samples of them. I took one bite and fell in love… Jen was so right. I am hooked, you really ought to try them too. Thanks Jen for getting me in trouble!

Speaking of cookies, I did a little interview for Cookie Magazine’s Nesting blog and it just came out today. I love all their house features, so the fact we are there too makes me smile big! So to see the True and Brave’s rooms again or to read me babble a little, go here… 
I am really thankful for all the love our house has been getting in blogland considering only I know how messy our house really is! I hope you all aren’t sick of my house just yet…
Happy Monday and I will be eating some of my yummy cookies… but only 2 (well, maybe three)!!!

    I was just at Trader J’s earlier this evening… why oh why couldn’t I have read this sooner?! :o) Oh well, at least I know about them now. I remember trying some oreo’s once that had green minty filling inside. They were quite good… but I have a feeling these will be even better. Next time, I’ll be on a mission. Have a great Tuesday!

    Congrats on the interview.

    We have a quickly dwindling box of those cookies in our pantry as well.

    Finally got around to starting Twilight. Am finishing it up now…

  • Rubyellen says:

    linnea- don’t forget next time you go! and i promise you will love it! BTW… love your photography!

    becky- so what do you think so far? are you hooked?

  • Two cookies! That is some major portion control. I need me a dietitian husband, too, instead of “Hey, let’s get In-N-Out tonight!”

    Hehe, and thanks for the shoutout. Congrats on the Cookie interview! Heading over there right now.

    And I see, miss Becky, you’ve become entrapped in the whole Twilight deal, hmmmmm?… I admit, I’m finally caving and want to start the series myself.

    i just saw those at tj and debated on whether i should get them or not..but i opted out 🙁

  • Do you mean “only two cookies” forever? Are they that bad? j/k 🙂

    ok, I really want them! Yum Yum! Thanks; I can’t wait! 🙂

  • Thalita Dol says:

    Oh, I wanna try the cookies!!

    Sometimes it makes no good to read about stuff that happens in the other side of the world!! =/

    But, if you ever come to Brazil, you MUST remeber to try a homemade candy called “brigadeiro” (Everyone knows how to make it, it’s really easy). You sould never forget this word! =)

    Kisses from Brazil!

  • We will never get sick of your house Ruby!!! Congrats on the write up! We are addicted to Paul Newman’s Mint Newman O’s… now I have to check the ingredients. Have a great day!

  • Kellie H says:

    seriously I look forward to those peppermint joe-joes every winter…hey try the Peppermint cheesecake with those on top…not as minty tho & so worth the $1.99. No one eats the cookies but my son & I so I end up eating a box over the course of a month =0!

  • Trish says:

    those cookies ARE good, aren’t they? Glad you’ve finally “discovered” them. Also, glad I found your blog (via Sugar City Journal), I am really loving your photography.
