Trader Joe’s blueberry cheesecake ice cream wedges

Trader Joe''s blueberry cheesecake ice cream wedges.

These ice cream pops taste cheesecake-like, but not enough so to satisfy any cheesecake urge.

These bars are new to the dessert freezer at Trader Joe’s. I guess they try to manage expectations by calling them “ice cream wedges,” but let’s face it. What I wanted was a cheesecake slice on a stick.

I didn’t make it out of the parking lot before wolfing down one of these mini bars. (It was 95 degrees outside and I wanted to try one while it was still fully frozen. That’s my story.) The crumbles on the edges evoke cheesecake crust, but there’s too light a dusting to bring anything to the party. Meanwhile, the ice cream part has a dense consistency (it’s made with cream cheese) that eats a bit oddly–not as smooth as premium ice cream, or as fulfilling as cheesecake.

All said, I’d be surprised to see these in the Trader Joe’s freezer case a year from now. Because if you’re a cheesecake fan, they aren’t going to scratch the itch.
