  1. The trader joe’s nutty bars are really good! Obviously almost the same as a Kind bar, but way cheaper, i just wish there was a no chocolate version.

    1. When I spotted it, I tried to see if it had a description but it did not. I am assuming that it is actually ice cream. Vs frozen dairy dessert due to the label but who knows? Pother than that, no details and it’s not yet on their website. I assumed vanilla on either end with the chocolate and crunchier in the middle since Breyers doesn’t have a cake batter in their lineup and, in general, ice cream cakes with the crunchier are plain chocolate and vanilla. I’m not that interested in tasting it despite loving carvel cakes, but am curious to know what others think.
