Trader Joe’s “PB&J” Snack Duo

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a staple in my household. They’re good for school or work lunches. They’re what I let the pickier eaters make for themselves if they don’t care for what’s being served for dinner (after first eating a few obligatory “no, thank you” bites). Some family members enjoy a PB&J sandwich simply as a snack.

So when I spotted some PB&J snacks at Trader Joe’s, they looked like just the thing my family would like. These snacks didn’t last long in my house.

The Trader Joe's "PB&J" Snack Duo

The Trader Joe’s “PB&J” Snack Duo cost $3.99 at the time of publication. One box contains six single-serving packs, so that comes out to about 67 cents per serving.

The box describes these as “crispy peanut butter filled wafer sticks with raspberry fruit dip.” They are a product of Greece and are kosher.

A peek inside one of the peanut butter wafer sticks.

These snacks are good, although they contain a lot of added sugar, so they’re not something to indulge in all the time. They’re more like a dessert. The peanut butter wafer sticks are crispy, flaky, and light on the outside with a nice creamy peanut butter filling. The raspberry jam dip is fairly thick and complements the peanut butter sticks. There isn’t a lot of dip, but it’s enough. Each serving is on the large side (with 270 calories), so sometimes my husband and I shared a pack.

These are so sugary that I won’t buy them often, but they’ll definitely find their way into my shopping cart again at some point.

The Verdict:

The Trader Joe’s “PB&J” Snack Duo feature crispy, flaky peanut butter wafer sticks packaged with a sweet raspberry jam-like fruit dip. These are a fun twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly pairing. They have a lot of added sugar, so they’re best treated as a type of dessert. They’re packaged in a way that makes them easy to drop into lunch boxes or pack for a picnic. If you have PB&J fans in your house, these might be worth a try.

  1. I’ve bought them a few times. They are delicious but the wafer can be crumbly so eat them over a napkin or plate.
