Do We Want S’More of Trader Joe’s New S’Mores Bars?

In honor of everyone’s favorite messy summertime treat, Trader Joe’s has released a new product in their freezer section: S’Mores Bars. These bars consist of a bottom layer of graham-cracker-crumb crust, a middle layer of fudge brownie, and a top layer of toasted marshmallow. Like I said, they come frozen so you can thaw them in the fridge or pop them in the oven for a few minutes.

Do these live up to real s’mores eaten around a campfire? Let’s find out (just in time for National S’mores Day, which is August 10, in case you didn’t have it marked on your calendar).

Trader Joe’s S’Mores Bars

We were disappointed by the last s’mores-flavored product that Trader Joe’s released, their S’mores Ice Cream. The ice cream base weirdly tasted like coffee rather than graham crackers and the pint was thin on mix-ins. Luckily, we were not let down this time around! Trader Joe’s S’mores Bars are delicious and they really taste like an upgraded version of s’mores. The graham crust is a little salty, buttery like a pie crust, and makes a great foundation. The brownie is super rich and fudgy. And the marshmallow layer is perfectly bruleed—you get a genuine toasted marshmallow flavor that’s lacking in a lot of s’mores-inspired products. I ate them both cold out of the fridge and toasted in the oven, and both preparations were delicious! I would absolutely recommend buying these before summer ends and they’re replaced by some pumpkin spice product or another.
