Trader Joe's Cupcakes

Photo stolen from here.
I went Trader Joe's yesterday for the first time in ages.  I forgot how amazing it is.  Minus the really long lines, which is a huge factor.  Almost a deal breaker for me.  But if you can deal with it then they have really great food.  They also have a lot of gluten free options.

I'm writing this post because I want to tell you about their gluten free cupcakes.  I had read about them online but hadn't really thought about them since.  Then I saw them in the store and they had my favorite flavor: chocolate with vanilla frosting.  I told myself I didn't need them.  I told myself I didn't even really want them.  And then I bought them anyway.  Classic me.

I got their Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting.  Guys, these are amazing.  Like almost some of the best gluten free cupcakes I have ever had.  Which says a lot because I have clearly had a lot of gluten free cupcakes in my day.  However, because they are prepacked cupcakes they have their nutrition facts on them.  Let me tell you, these cupcakes are REALLY bad for you.  Like, disgustingly bad.  But taste so good.  This is a real conundrum.  I'll let you make this important life decision on your own.


  1. Sounds awesome. Minus the nutrition label!

  2. Wow, these sound outrageously good! I'm going to take some home to the UK for Christmas for sure!
