Trader Joe’s Vanilla Baton Wafer Cookies

No friends, you are not seeing double! Yes, I did just write a review and post about the Lemon Baton Wafer Cookies that are NEW!

These Vanilla Baton Wafer Cookies however, can be considered a “cousin”…(get it? Two COUSINS Haul It All, see what I did there…) to the Lemon Wafer Cookies. Keep reading for our exclusive cart review and much more!

What are Trader Joe’s Lemon Baton Wafer Cookies?

As I mentioned in my first post about these wafer cookies, most “baton” like cookies are pretty similar. They have the outer thin and crispy wafer shell, with some sort of sweet filling inside.

They are pretty recognizable because of their shape, and the circular canister that most of them come packaged in.

These baton wafer cookies are vanilla flavored! Yet another delightful flavor for the middle of summertime! These wafers, I’m assuming are the same as the wafer part of the Lemon Batons, just plain. The vanilla cream in the center is what makes these shine though.

Each baton is hand rolled into their iconic shape! The sweet vanilla cream on the inside is made with real, ground Indonesian vanilla beans! Each wafer is about 6-7 inches long, which gives you just over a half a foot of creamy vanilla goodness in each baton!

Where In the Store?

I found these vanilla wafer cookies near the other two types of Baton cookies Trader Joe’s offers! The other two flavors are: Lemon Baton Wafer Cookies (mentioned above), and Cocoa Baton Wafer Cookies; a review on the cocoa batons to come soon!

If you’ve ever found yourself wandering down the frozen aisle of your local Trader Joe’s and have looked up to the shelves above, you can find so many treasures.

Hidden amongst those treasures was the display of all of the Baton Wafer Cookies!

How to Serve Trader Joe’s Lemon Baton Wafer Cookies

My favorite way to eat this type of cookie is right out of the container. No fuss, simple and easy.

These vanilla cookies would be the perfect pairing with a cup of hot tea, coffee, hot chocolate or cappuccino! Admittedly, I did not do the exclusive Two Cousins “Dunk Test” on these, or the other flavors, but I’m thinking in the near future I might have to try it out and report back!

Since trying the Peanuts for Chocolate! Ice Cream I have already bought myself another pint, and both of parents one of their own as well! I loved nestling two of these vanilla baton wafers into my little bowl of peanut butter chocolate ice cream. They gave it a nice crunch and it was so fun to eat!

This is the perfect snack to keep in your desk or drawer at work! The canister keeps every singe baton fresh even after opening the plastic packaging.

They would also make a fun edition for camping, boating trips and RV or campers! The packaging is so slim and round, you can fit them just about anywhere!

The wafers are packaged in a very clever way to keep the freshness sealed in, and also still manageable to take on the go!

Giving these as a gift, or part of a gift basket isn’t a bad idea either! I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love any one of these 3 flavors of Baton Wafer Cookies!

The Review

I really liked these Vanilla Baton Wafer Cookies, they were so good!

The vanilla flavor was subtle and not overpowering. The ground Indonesian vanilla bean creamy center was really the shining star in the entire wafer cookie. Vanilla beans are a beautiful thing and really add something special to whatever dish they’re added into.

Vanilla beans are delicate, and should be handled with care, just like these wafer cookies! The wafer wrapped around the outside is so delicate, thin and flaky, and it holds the sweet vanilla cream in so well!

The crunch was unbeatable. I loved every bite I took from the baton, and found myself reaching back into the container for another one. I loved eating it with my ice cream, it gave the dish another layer of texture and flavor!

I’m looking forward to trying it in some hot coffee. See how it stands up to our Exclusive “Dunk Test!”

Buy It Again?

I will TOTALLY buy these Vanilla Batons again! They are so tasty and so much fun to just snack on “as is”, but I feel like I can always find another fun way to enjoy these! The possibilities are endless!

I’d love to give these as part of a gift, or to someone around the holidays or for a special occasion! You can bring these to any type of party and watch them all disappear. Your friends will love you, you can thank me later.

So far, two out of the three flavors I really enjoy, so I can’t imagine that the third is going to disappoint. I can also let you in on a little secret (SHHHH). I’m going to be reviewing a snack that’ll have you running to your local Trader Joe’s for a box! They have mini peanut butter filled batons!! YES, you are reading that right!

Stay tuned for which fun “kid/back to school snack” I’m talking about!

When I make my next haul to Trader Joe’s I’ll be picking up another canister of these for sure! Have you ever tried these or their other flavors? Tell us below in the comments!
