What do you get when you cross an ice cream cone with cheesecake? You get a Trader Joe’s Mini Cheesecake Cone! Yes, you read that right: Cheesecake. In. A. Cone. Though they may look like little ice cream cones, Trader Joe’s private brand Mini Cheesecake Cones are assuredly not ice cream. Made for the retailer in Italy, they are little, hand-held almond Florentine cones (picture sweet, praline-like Florentine cookies that have been rolled up into cones) filled with a thick, velvety-sweet cheesecake filling made from a heavenly blend of buffalo’s milk ricotta & quark cheese (a fresh & tangy cheese with a nifty name.)
Trader Joe’s is selling each 7.05-ounce box of four, 1.76-ounce Mini Cheesecake Cones for $3.99.
