This Is Hands Down the Best Cookie at Trader Joes

Sure, everyone knows about Trader Joes beloved sandwich cookie, Joe-Joes. But did you know that dunkers are even better?

Although Joe-Joes arentAmericasbest-selling cookie, theyre certainly the most popular option at beloved grocery store chain, Trader Joes. People go crazy for Joe-Joes. And I get it — theyre delicious sandwich cookies that are a Trader Joes-ified version of Oreos, which as we all know areAmericas real favorite cookie. They come in different flavors, with seasonal delights like pumpkin in the fall and candy cane during the holidays. Occasionally, they are enveloped in chocolate or fudge, making them an even more indulgent cookie. Theyre everything you love about oreos but somehow falsely feel better-for-you because theyre coming from the celebrated chain (yes,many people believe TJs = healthy and organic).

What people dont know is that the best cookie at Trader Joes isnt the mango-infused Joe-Joe, sticky sweet with tropical flavoring. They arent the peanut butter filled Joe-Joes either. In fact, the best cookies at Trader Joes arent Joe-Joes at all. Theyre dunkers — more specifically, the Oatmeal Cranberry Dunkers with White Fudge Drizzle.

First of all, dunkers are ingenious in their shape. Its all in the name: these cookies are intended for a dip in a cool bath of milk. Dunkers, well, dunk, so beautifully. They dont crumble when submerged in a glass of milk or a warm cup of tea. Theyre also long enough that your fingers remain dry throughout the duration of your cookie snacking — a double win.

Secondly, the Oatmeal Cranberry Dunkers are really balanced in terms of flavor. They taste like a snowy day spent inside, accompanied by the comforting smell of cinnamon, vanilla, and winter baked treats. The white fudge drizzle isnt overly sweet, but a welcomed addition in contrast to the tart cranberries. Plus, when dunked in something warm, the fudge becomes melty and creamy — an enjoyable contrast of the crunchiness of the cookie.

This cookie, truly, is like magic — it really has the ability to transport you to a different season. But even with its wintry flavoring, its delicious any time of year — perfect with a cup of coffee to start your day or as an after dinner treat. Thankfully, the cookies are available all year round.

If cranberries, oatmeal, cinnamon, and all things good arent really up your alley for some unexplainable reason, the other dunkers are delicious as well. Theres a classic chocolate chip variant, a chocolate chip coated in chocolate (for my fellow chocolate fiends), and the latest dunker: a hot chocolate version, loaded with marshmallows and chocolate chunks. If you really want to take your dunking to the next level, perhaps dunk a hot chocolate dunker in hot chocolate.

Sandwich cookies are great and all, but dunkers are the true unsung heroes of Trader Joes cookie selection. While other cookies may be falling short, these guys are definitely dunking on em.
