TRADER Joe fans are salivating at a delicious new baked good – but it might not last forever.
Grocery stores often have new items coming and going.
Such may be the case with the recent launch of Trader Joe’s gluten-free strawberry muffins.
The strawberry muffins are made from a gluten-free flour mix consisting of heavy cream, buttermilk, and sour cream.
While prices may vary by location, a 14-ounce four-pack is listed online for $5.99.
One fan said in a Reddit thread, “Bought these today and they’re delicious!!” Not overly sweet, very juicy, and have a nice strawberry flavor. No artificial strawberry flavor. You would never know they are gluten free. Try them.”
“SO GOOD,” said another, adding a “pleasure on face” emoji.
The shopper also added, “Toast them or heat them up a bit (toaster is best) and put some butter on top and that takes them to a whole other level.”
However, some went a step further and paired the muffins with Madagascar custard bean crème fraîche, which Trader Joe’s calls the “French cousin of American sour cream.”
And of course it has a vanilla touch.
One fan said in a separate Reddit thread while enjoying the new gluten-free muffins: “I put a dollop of the new vanilla bean crème fraiche on top. Dangerously tasty!”
However, a Trader Joe’s staffer confirmed to The US Sun that the French sour cream is “ready for the season”.
There’s no word on when it will come back – but it hasn’t been discontinued.
And it’s unclear if the strawberry muffins have a much longer shelf life, given the “Limited” label on the item online.
Therefore, buyers might want to pick them up and try them out before it’s too late.
