The Next Best Thing

Welcome to The Next Best Thing, a blog series that was born when my sister and I were catching up about anything and everything. "How have you not heard about this," I asked her about something I was raving about, and then I realized that if she hasn't heard of it, chances are many others haven't either - and that's how the idea came about to share our favorite things with our readers. Some of them you may be familiar with, but some of the coolest items we become obsessed with people have never even heard of. And with that we bring you our first favorite item and The Next Best Thing:

Trader Joe's Cold Brew Latte Dessert Bars

You had us at Cold Brew. And then again at Dessert. And by "40 calories," we had to have you. These delicious coffee ice cream bars are the ideal mix between getting your caffeine fix while having some dessert, and with that ingredients list, there's absolutely no guilt. Here's what we love about it:

  • It's not too sweet
  • Only 40 calories
  • Affordable at only $4 for 5 bars
  • Perfect snack to give you some fuel on a hot day

I know, we can't believe it either. 

Have an item you think we should know about? Email us at and let us know. Who knows, it could become The Next Best Thing.
