When I take a leisurely walk in Trader Joe’s on a quiet Sunday morning, it’s a favorite weekend pastime. I make it a point to go early to avoid the crowds, when the store is calm and the shelves are freshly restocked. It’s just me, my shopping cart, and the background music set by Trader Joe’s which always seems to be spot on.

One of the appealing aspects of Trader Joe’s is the continuous introduction of new items on the shelves, sometimes only for a few weeks. While the excitement of rediscovering a seasonal item is unmatched, there’s also a reassuring feeling in knowing that your favorite staples will always be in stock. When it comes to staples, the one item I never leave without is TJ’s Mini Hold The Cone Ice Cream Cones.

Why I Love Trader Joe’s Hold The Cone Ice Cream Cones

If you have a sweet tooth, Trader Joe’s offers a variety of treats, but this one holds a special place for me. It recently won the dessert category in Trader Joe’s 14th annual customer choice awards, which suggests it’s a crowd pleaser. These miniature ice cream cones perfectly satisfy my dessert cravings and are just the right size for a daily sweet treat.

The Hold the Cone ice cream cones are small, chocolate-lined cones filled with ice cream and topped with more chocolate. The inner chocolate layer not only adds to the flavor but also prevents the ice cream from melting and dripping as you enjoy it—an added bonus.

A serving size is three mini cones, but even one at a time is enough to fulfill my sweet indulgence. I’ve even been known to have one as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Each box contains eight mini cones, and the best part? These treats are available year-round.

Hold the Cone Flavors

The classic Hold the Cone flavors include chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate chip, which features vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips in a chocolate cone. Seasonal flavors like coffee bean (perfect for the upcoming warmer weather) add a unique touch. Other seasonal options include pumpkin ginger in the fall and peppermint during the holidays. Each flavor is distinct and offers a satisfying experience.

In conclusion, my admiration for these mini cones has no bounds. Exclusively found at Trader Joe’s, these treats never fail to impress. I make sure to always have a box in my freezer and often find myself replenishing my stock on a Sunday.
