candy can joe-joe's, now the winners!! yep, i decided to make it two.

mrcarpetc1 where are yooooooooooou? i can not contact you. i will give you one week, then pick another. come out, come out where ever you are!!!

random.org's site is down for maintenance so the hubster gave me two numbers-#22 spacemonkey1138 and #14 mrcarpetc1. Congratulations!! Now, to get a hold of ya......

do you know this cookie? if not, you might soon because i am going to be giving a few boxes away. these are a seasonal cookie sold by trader joe's and they are addicting! picture an oreo and its dreamy, creamy filling spiked with real peppermint and tiny bits of candy cane. ho,ho, ho this is good stuff folks. i bought my first, but not last, box of the year today. travis and i couldn't wait and promptly ripped into them right in front of the cookie display. keep your figgy pudding and give us candy cane joe-joe's.

i'm sorry, were we suppose to pay for these?

who wants sugar laden, highly addictive cookies? just leave me comment telling me that you do and i will randomly pick someone sunday to kick start their habit with a box or two. u.s. only. enjoy.

Oh my goodness do those look wonderful! I'd love to try them. I sadly live in a small town with limited grocery stores. No Trader Joe's here... I hope to be able to visit one soon!

Jennifer said...

I want these because I don't have a Trader Joe's near me, but I always hear how great it is! :)

Cheryl said...

I saw those at Trader Joes but was too cheap to buy them, thats why I need em!

Tracey said...

Those look wonderful! We just got our first Trader Joe's about a year ago but I haven't tried these. I think I need to take a trip and pick some up. Since I just won the last giveaway I won't enter this one but just wanted to stop by and say hi :)

TeaLady said...

From what I hear, Trader Joes is a great place to shop/drool/wander. Not one any where near us...

But since I love oreos, these would be a great intro to TJ's.

Pam said...

I love these cookies! Isn't Trader Joes the best?

Shashi said...

I just went to Trader Joe's! But I didn't buy these and would love to try them:)

Rachel said...

these are super yummy cookies. last year they also had tiny cardamom orange star cookies that were addictive too!

Patty said...

Ok I live around the corner from Trader Joes, How did I miss these! I am going to head over there this weekend and see if they are in yet.
Oh and FYI do you ever go to the World Market (there is one on Jefferson near Oyster Point) in Newport News. They have the best Ginger Snaps!. They use to have them only for the holidays, but I believe they stock them year round now.
(PS) don't worry about adding me to the contest. Let someone who doesn't have a trader joe near them have a better chance at winning because I can run buy some

Jessica said...

WOW! Oreos are my all-time favorite cookie and these look scrumptious :D

Haley said...

I'm in college without a car so I can't even GET to a TJ's... and I live for all things peppermint =[

Julia said...

I love to use these in place of Oreos to make 'Peppermint Cookie and Cream Ice Cream.' It is the best Christmas treat! But I do have about 3 Trader Joe's within a few mile radius. Oh, it makes me sad for those of your who can't enjoy Trader Joe's seasonal products :(

Leah said...

Ohmigod I want Jo-Jo's! I've heard nothing but awesomeness about them but we don't have a Trader Joe's near me.

I live in Idaho hundreds of miles away from the nearest Trader Joes!!! I would SO love to win these.

terrymtz said...

Oh I'd LOVE a box. I've been missing Trader Joe's ever since I moved away from Boston!

Jenni said...

YUM! I'd LOVE some of these.

Hannah Sivilay said...

I went to trader Joes the other day specifically to get about 14 boxes of these! THEY WERE ALL OUT! Ahhhh....this pregnant mama really wants some!

Amy said...

Oh my gosh - WANT. I don't live anywhere remotely close to a Trader Joe's.... *drool*

I saw the picture on foodgawker and had to come check them out, please tell me they are candy cane oreo type deals. That would quite possibly be the most amazing thing ever!! We don't have a Trader Joe's (which it seems like no one has one close - note to Trader Joe's OPEN MORE STORES!!)and I would love to give them a try!

Space Monkey 1138 said...

My son would LOVE these, and he is having a birthday next week so thank you for the chance at winning!!

Whitney said...

WOOOO I love these! I stare at them on TJ's every time I go and try my hardest to resist. YUM!!!!! I would love to win some!

Ashleigh said...

I love Trader Joe's! But I moved away from them and can't get any of these delicious cookies.. going through withdrawls!!

Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer said...

Love these and look forward to seeing them every year! Dip these babies in chocolate and OMG heaven!

Kristen said...

I *love* *love* *love* these cookies! They are the perfect treat with their deep chocolate-y goodness countered with the perfect peppermint filling. And that bit of actual peppermint candy crunch- YUM!!

We lived in CA last year, which is when we discovered them. We are in Utah this year, and we have NO TRADER JOES! What is wrong with this state?! I have already been craving them and dreaming up ideas on who out of state I can convince to buy me some of these tasty treats. I sure could use a fix! :0)

Thanks for this fun give-away!

Baking Away said...

I tried these last year, and they were to die for! Sadly, there is no Trader Joes near me. I would love to win a box!

Danielle said...

I would love a box! This sounds so cool! Great flavor combination.

Caitlin said...

MMM they look so good! I wish I had a Trader Joe's near me!! thanks for the giveaway opportunity :)

Jane said...

I'm so excited for the holidays this year and my sweet tooth, which is highly present all year long, is getting in the holiday spirit as well. I'd love to try these cookies. They sound so good. I bet they'd be great dunked in hot chocolate.

julie g said...

please i love cookies.

Sunny said...

I have a 40 hour job (that is ending next year) and I also design candy wrappers and other cuties (part time) and those Trader Joe cookies sure would look good on my hips..uh, meant to say my LIPS (ha ha) and they would give this workaholic a little sweet delight while I slave away in front of my computer! Mmmmm...I can almost taste them now! :)

Kathy said...

I heard about these last year and had to hunt them down! So yummy!
