CUSTOMERS are begging Trader Joe’s to bring back a popular frozen sweet treat.
Each box came with eight bars that were gluten-free.
The bars had a rich raspberry flavor on one side with a vanilla flavor on the other and contained cream inside.
Many shoppers and food reviewers likened the treats to a creamsicle – a flavored popsicle with ice cream at its core.
While the raspberry flavor is gone, Trader Joe’s customers can still grab the Mango & Cream Bars.

However, shoppers are still missing the raspberry as they have taken to Twitter to mourn the flavor.
One Twitter user wrote: “Raspberry & vanilla bars from Trader Joe’s has to be the best ice cream of allll time!”
Another Tweeted: “TRADER JOES BRING BACK THE RASPBERRY VANILLA CREAM BARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
OFF THE SHELF
Since shelf space is expensive and competitive, products that don’t make enough money get the chop.
Items also get discontinued for other, simpler reasons like being seasonal.
For whatever reason, shoppers may have difficulty getting over their favorites leaving.
Another item to get the ax was the Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies.
Back in the 2010s, Trader Joe’s added the popular sandwich cookies.
These had a layer of fudge in the middle that shoppers regularly paired with milk for the perfect nostalgic snack.
Yet, they were discontinued back in 2021 and fans are still angry about their departure.
One Instagram user wrote: “It was criminal to discontinue these cookies.”
Another wrote: “WHY HAVE THEY DONE THIS TO ME. DID MY DOCTOR CALL THEM?”
SAVE WHILE SHOPPING
As many shoppers continue to see grocery prices skyrocket, there are still ways to save.
Trader Joe’s has no loyalty program, but that’s because it truly feels the prices are low enough.
“We have low prices, every day. NO coupons. NO membership cards. NO discounts. NO glitzy promotions or couponing wars at our stores. We offer the best everyday values, every day,” Trader Joe’s said on its website.
While Trader Joe’s doesn’t carry coupons either, it does accept manufacturer’s coupons for other products they carry.
A manufacturer coupon is a coupon issued by the manufacturer offering a free item or a specific discount on the purchase price of the manufacturer’s products.
They are quite rare, so if you are able to find one, cherish it.
In order to see what’s new or possibly receive any type of discount at Trader Joe’s, customers must sign up for their newsletter.
In the newsletter, patrons can hear about new deals, possibly collect any coupons, or even pick up their Frequent Flyer to hear about current deals.
While some products have been discontinued, Trader Joe’s has added four new items.
Plus, Trader Joe’s shoppers are scooping up a tasty bite-sized $3.99 snack that’s “evil and so delicious.”
