Cookie Butter Spread.
Ever tasted something so good you wish it would only be available to you? Well, Trader Joe’s in Pasadena offers the infamous Cookie Butter spread— a humble mixture of crumbled cookie with a tang of gingerbread-like taste and a peanut butter consistency. It’s so high on demand that you have to ask a sales representative to fetch it from the office counters! Unfortunately, you’re limited to no more than two jars. There’s been a shortage all throughout the past year—it may challenge the fame Nutella has taken.
Trader Joe’s has expanded its production and made a crunchy version, a line that has the cookie bits in each bite. Does that sound alluring? Snack on it with apples, pair it your morning breakfast of waffles, or better yet, dig your spoon into the jar and let your taste buds scream in pleasure! Stop by the Trader Joe’s on South Lake or Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena and demand one of these scrumptious and promised happiness in a jar.
While Boba or bubble tea may not be familiar to many outside Asia, it has sailed across the ocean and onto our shores. It’s an easy find —- it’s in greater Pasadena. Half and Half Tea Express has been an extremely successful venue for several years -— they’ve defeated the usual tea and boba (large chewy tapioca pearls) and combined boba with flavored pudding. While this combination may seem obtusely eccentric to the norm, the dynamic duo produces a refreshingly brilliant drink. Half and Half has continued to build its menu; the list of flavors may seem endless, (menus are located on the counters) but don’t worry, there’s a board by the register baring the most popular beloved flavors recommended by customers.
The place itself has plenty of seating inside and out on the patio by the strip for those that would like to enjoy their drink under Pasadena weather. Or take it to-go even though the cups are formatted in a way that it’s impossible to fit your car holder. The serving size is enormous compared with your usual average cups, but it fills you with sweet and satisfaction.
The small, trendy chic tea shop is located on a strip at 3007 Huntington Drive Pasadena 91107.
