Trader Joe's Ube Ice Cream

If you love the Filipino dessert halo-halo, Trader Joe's Ube Ice Cream has a similar taste. With a purple yam flavor, you might think of this dessert as a turnoff, but it's delicious! Sweet but not too sweet, chunky but not too chunky, with a creamy soft-serve texture, this Trader Joe's treat is a 10/10.


Trader Joe's Neapolitan Joe-Joe's Ice Cream

If you love Trader Joe's Joe-Joe's Sandwich Cookies, you'll adore this Neapolitan Joe-Joe's Ice Cream. Made with vanilla and strawberry ice cream, chunks of fudge, and Neapolitan Joe-Joe's pieces aplenty, your tastebuds will be screaming for more.


Trader Joe's Peanut Butter and Cookies and Cream Light Ice Cream

We asked, and Trader Joe's finally answered! Trader Joe's Light Ice Cream contains 370 calories and roughly 20 grams of protein. With two delicious flavors, peanut butter and cookies and cream, you're bound to eat it by the pint.


Trader Joe's French Vanilla Ice Cream

Admittedly, French Vanilla has the most calories of all the TJ's vanilla options, but the lighter versions don't even compare to this one. The vanilla flavor is surprisingly rich and creamy, so even if you think vanilla is boring, we have a feeling that this one will change your mind.


Trader Joe's Chocolate Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

For the lactose intolerant folks out there, this is the best dairy-free flavor you'll find. Because it's made with coconut milk, it's infused with the slightest hint of coconut, which complements the rich chocolate better than you might expect. Sure, it doesn't have the creamy decadence of true dairy ice cream, but it's a pretty darn good substitute.


Trader Joe's Ultra Chocolate Ice Cream

Listen up, chocolate-lovers. Out of all the TJ's chocolate ice cream varieties, this one is definitely the richest, with a supercreamy base and generous chocolaty flavor. If you want to down a chocolate bar in ice cream form, then you'll love this.


Trader Joe's Coffee Bean Blast Ice Cream

This is definitely not your traditional coffee-flavored ice cream. By adding brewed Colombian coffee in addition to ground French roast coffee beans, TJ's Coffee Bean Blast Ice Cream feels like a shot of espresso (but tastes way more delicious).


Trader Joe's Peanut Butter Tracks Ice Cream

Made with the already delicious french vanilla ice cream, this flavor has the added bonus of mini peanut butter cups and a caramel swirl. What more could you want?


Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Gelato

For the sophisticated ice cream consumer, Trader Joe's Salted Caramel Gelato is a denser, richer, and creamier variety that's still lower in fat and calories than traditional ice cream. It also combines sea salt and caramel, which is almost as good a combination as chocolate and peanut butter.


Trader Joe's Golden Caramel Swirl in French Vanilla and Chocolate Ice Cream

When you combine Ultra Chocolate with Super Premium French Vanilla, you get this decadent flavor that everyone will love. Plus, it's tied together with a caramel swirl (as if you needed more convincing).


Trader Joe's Kona Coffee Cookie Mocha Swirl Ice Cream

Made with Kona coffee shortbread cookie chucks and a mocha fudge swirl in a creamy ice cream base, this one isn't to be missed. It's basically a full dessert in a quart (though it's up to you if you want to share).


Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Ice Cream

If you believe chunkier is better when it comes to ice cream, then Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Ice Cream is for you. With enormous cookie pieces and decadent Speculoos cookie butter added to TJ's already rich vanilla ice cream, we really don't trust anyone who would say no to this flavor.
