Adorable Bars of Fruity, Frozen Deliciousness!

As you might have read in the updated version of my beloved Trader Joe's Mango Sorbet review, it was only a seasonal item for the summer, leaving my freezer and I very heartbroken this fall.  I tried to substitute with several other brands, but nothing ever seemed to quite measure up to it.  I am a Trader Ho, afterall, and even though I knew that the TJ's sorbet might not be back till next summer, or if ever at all, I still keep my eyes peeled every time I'm in their freezer aisle.

Fast forward to this past week, when I was doing just that, and low and behold, a cute little orange-colored box catches my eye.  It was Trader Joe's Mango & Cream Bars and the box was super tiny.  I thought, "This box probably has like, two popsicles in it.  Four tops".  Then I read on the box that it had eight bars in it.  What?  No way.  Now I was super curious. 

When I got home and opened up the box, I found out why they were so tiny: they have no sticks!  Despite these bars not having sticks, they're still super tiny and adorable.  They're about the size of Tofutti Cuties, which is no problem for me because I think they're the perfect size and just hit the spot without being too sweet or heavy.

The mango and cream part are separated, like in their Soy Creamy Mango & Vanilla Ice Cream (except these bars aren't soy).  As the picture on the box indicates, there's a chunk of mango and a stripe of vanilla on the side.  I would say that the texture of this bar is actually more icey than it is creamy, if that makes sense.  Concerned about not knowing how to eat an ice cream bar without a stick?  Never fear; there are two-step directions on the wrapper.

I'm hoping that these bars are more than just a seasonal item at TJ's! :D

Smaller is better because the sugar content will be lower in all likelihood.

I believe you need to import Harumanis to the States! If you haven't had this, you haven't had Mango!!! YUM! :p

Oh, my! Ok, I can stop dreaming & just write it down. This is definitely going in my shopping cart on my visit to TJ's. Mango is one of my favorite flavors irregardless of what treat I'm sinking my teeth into. I love mango pudding so I'm sure this is just another addictive treat that I'd be smart to avoid but hardly think I could resist. Thanks for the review!

My pleasure! I love mango pudding, too! :)

I can't seem to find anyplace around that sells Mango pudding other than than the Indian or Pakistani restaurants but I really do crave this. I should learn how to make it. ;-)

Oh...come on. Who's gonna believe that YOU enjoy a product from Trader Joe's? :) No sticks? Was it a mess?
December 12, 2009
I know, a Trader Ho enjoying a Trader Joe product? No way! :P And with as fast as I finish these things, there's no chance for melting, so never a mess ;)

These are so good!! Hey, Devora, have you tried ube (Asian purple yam) ice cream with macapuno (sweetened coconut) ice cream? They are great!!

Are you talking about the Magnolia brand stuff?  Cuz I love that stuff!  I've had it with red bean, too, instead of coconut.  I've been meaning to write a review of them!
November 24, 2009
Magnolia and Selecta is really good!
November 24, 2009
I'm jotting down Selecta! I think I might've seen that at Ranch 99...

Sounds delicious. I like mango...so this would be a nice fit. I was happy when Trader Joe's opened near me...they are one of the few places I can find my Snap Pea Crisps.

If you've got a Trader Joe's around you, you should check these out!  By the way, if you dig TJ's, you might dig Lunch's TJ's Community.  There are plenty of food recommendations there!
