Review: Trader Joe’s Flourless Chocolate Cake

I am not going to beat around the bush here.  I have been living in my own little world and ignoring one of the best products on the market for the past couple of years.  This product has literally been right under my nose, yet I never purchased it before.  Sure, I thought about it, but I didn’t want to part with $6.99 for something I hadn’t heard much about.  I am not sure why that held me back, I have forked over just as much money, if not more, for other gluten-free products.  If you really think about it, this serves 6, so $6.99 isn’t bad at all.


The label should have been my first clue “True Decadence”.  Did I really ignore that?  Perhaps I should have my head examined.


The label is fairly simple, and though it says there are 6 servings, I would say more like 10-12, as this is really dense.  I am not known for small dessert portions, especially when it comes to chocolate, but trust me when I tell you that you don’t need much of this cake to be transported right to heaven!


I fell in love at first bite!  I have found a new go-to dessert that requires nothing more than a trip to Trader Joe’s.  Both Jon and Hannah agreed that this cake is phenomenal!

Trader Joe’s has locations across the US and maintains a list of gluten-free items they offer in their stores that is frequently updated.

Have you tried Trader Joe’s Flourless Chocolate Cake?  I see on their gluten-free product list they also have Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cookies.  I need to find those.  STAT!

    I’ve thought about buying it before but it used to have the disclaimer that manufactured with wheat and it always stopped me.I don’t see it on your pictures, I wonder when they changed that.

    actually i have tried it and it’s decadent! absolutely love it! tried it last year and you pretty much have to call and ask if they can order one for you. the nearest TJ’s to me is 45 min. away but they are so worth the trip!

    The trader joes near me has this but the label says manufactured with wheat. I have tried it before and it is delicious but will not be buying it anymore as I seem to be sensitive to anything processed on the same equipment as wheat. It looks like their manufacturing practices are different where you are. Interesting.
