Gone are the days of just grabbing a store-bought pint of ice cream and scooping it into a bowl (not to knock a classic sundae), because TJ's has an innovative dessert choice (or choices) that will satisfy every sweet tooth.

Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones

Whoever invented these Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones over at TJ's deserves a promotion. They’re the ideal sweet treat for an afternoon snack or dessert, and they’re available in classic flavors like vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and chocolate chip. The best part? The itty-bitty cones are filled with a chocolatey coating that makes these one of the best frozen treats from Trader Joe's.

Out of This World Ice Pops

We’re feeling quite nostalgic over these red, white, and blue rocket ship pops. But if we’re being honest, these Out of This World Ice Pops are tastier than the original version from the neighborhood ice cream truck. The flavor combination of strawberry, blueberry, and lemon ices will quickly take you back to a hot summer day from your childhood.

Horchata Ice Cream

If you’re a big horchata fan, you might just eat a pint of this Horchata Ice Cream in one sitting. Inspired by the beloved Latin American beverage, TJ's has created a playful twist on a traditional horchata by turning into a delectable ice cream. Hot tip: stock up your freezer now, because this limited-edition product won’t last all summer.

Gone Bananas!

So technically this frozen dessert isn’t ice cream, but it’s worthy of a spot on this list, we promise. These bite-sized dark chocolate covered bananas—aka Gone Bananas!—are so good that you should probably grab a few boxes since they’re almost too easy to devour. And at just $2.79 a box, you can fill up your whole freezer! Or, if you're feeling ambitious, you can try to make a version of this dessert yourself.

Gone Berry Crazy!

While you’re grabbing a few boxes of Gone Bananas!, make sure to also add a few of the Gone Berry Crazy!. If you love chocolate-covered strawberries, you will fall head-over-heels for this frozen rendition. They’re great for the kiddos, too!

Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches

We’re about to make a bold confession: these Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches from TJ's might just be better than the OG Chipwich. And while Chipwich may have invented the original ice cream cookie sandwich, TJ's version is absolutely perfect. The chocolate chip cookies are perfectly soft, and the vanilla ice cream has the perfect texture, meaning it won’t melt within minutes.

Ube Ice Cream

Yam ice cream?! Yes, ma’am! Ube is a purple yam that’s extremely popular in the Philippines, and it’s commonly used in many goodies like jams, candies, cakes, and ice cream! You may be wondering what this Ube Ice Cream tastes like, and it’s a delightful combination of vanilla and pistachio, with a hint of coconut. *chef’s kiss!*

Vegan Cookies & Cream Vanilla Bean Bon Bons

Whether you’re vegan or not, you’re going to love these Cookies & Cream Vanilla Bean Bon Bons. These vegan, non-dairy ice cream bites are made with coconut milk and a chocolate and vanilla bean crème sandwich cookie, and then they’re doused in a thick chocolate coating.

Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Oat Bars

This is another great non-dairy dessert option, and it tastes just like one of the fudgy ice cream bars from your childhood. These Non-Dairy Chocolate Fudge Oat Bars are made using oat milk, but still have the same creamy consistency as the ice cream bars we know and love. They’re also only 100 calories each, which is an added treat!

Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches

We’ve all had cookie ice cream sandwiches, but have you ever had one with a brownie? We're here to confirm that it is life changing. TJ's absolutely nailed it with these crisp yet soft brownies paired with smooth coffee ice cream. If you’re a coffee and chocolate lover, these Brownie Crisp Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches are for you.

Figo! Half Dipped Chocolate & Vanilla Sandwich Bars

These handheld Figo! Half Dipped Chocolate & Vanilla Sandwich Bars are simply figo, which means “cool” or “trendy” in Italian. And they’re not your average ice cream bar since it’s vanilla ice cream sandwiches between two chocolate wafers, and then half dipped in a decadent chocolate coating.

Wildberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Cheesecake-flavored ice cream is truly what dreams are made of, and this TJ's pint has actual pieces of cheesecake and mixed berries swirled about. While this might seem like the perfect ice cream to enjoy all summer long, it’s available year-round, so you can grab some for any occasion or season.
