A definitive ranking of Trader Joe’s seasonal cookies

Nisha McNealis, Micaela Wong, and Dylan Zou

Winter is the perfect season for cookies, and Trader Joe’s, conveniently located across the street from Palo Alto High School, is a popular source of these sweets for students.

To help Paly students satisfy their cookie cravings, the Paly Voice staff set out to determine the best Trader Joe’s treats to enjoy this year. Before winter break, staff members sampled each cookie and rated them from 1-5. The average rating of each cookie was used to rank the cookie from 1 (best) to 8 (worst).
