In an ideal world, we’d all have time to bake our loved ones a homemade birthday cake on their special day. But in reality, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Maybe your mom lives halfway across the country. Or maybe you’re sent on a business trip the day your sister turns 30. Or maybe you’re just not the greatest baker.

Whatever the reason, we have a new solution. Trader Joe’s now sells a white chocolate Birthday Cake bar, complete with cookie crumbs and sprinkles. It’s sweet and creamy, with just the right amount of crunch. If you’re a fan of Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Creme bars (or for that matter, anything Funfetti flavored), we bet you’ll like this one, too. Its cute packaging, complete with balloons and confetti, means you don’t even have to wrap it.

Not only can you send it in the mail (unlike a traditional cake), but you can pick it up last-minute on the way to the party. It’s also perfect for friends who dislike cake, or prefer white chocolate to dark chocolate. Oh, and it’s less than $2, so you can pair it with another present and not blow your budget.

The bar, which consists of 6 squares of chocolate, was first spotted on the Instagram account The Junk Food Aisle. It has since been shared extensively across social media. In fact, fun new candy bars seem to be having a moment. We recently tried the rosé chocolate bar, and can’t wait to get our hands on a new avocado chocolate bar from Compartes.
