When we discovered that a favorite Trader Joe's frozen treat was coming back, the first thing that came to mind was, "Oh, wow!"

Trader Joe's is known for having desserts in its frozen aisle that are a "10 out of 10." Whether you're snatching up the individual servings of tiramisù or bread pudding, the cheese pastry rolls, or the sweet treat that shoppers voted number one in 2024, it's always wise to have an insulated freezer bag with you when you shop at TJ's.

You might want to take two insulated freezer bags with you next time so you can stock up on the treat that Allrecipes editor Bailey Fink said was "so good I couldn't stop myself from going in for two, three, and four more spoonfuls" when she taste-tested it a couple of years ago.

Trader Joe's Banana Pudding Flavored Ice Cream is back, but only for a limited time.

Trader Joe’s Banana Pudding Flavored Ice Cream

The most famous banana pudding in the world is arguably the version served at Magnolia Bakery, which is full of banana-flavored pudding, sliced bananas, and vanilla wafers. Trader Joe's Banana Pudding Flavored Ice Cream seems to take inspiration from that famous dessert people line up for, but it goes one step further and adds salted caramel into the mix.

Banana pudding-flavored ice cream, vanilla wafer cookie pieces, salted caramel—it's no wonder Bailey had to keep tasting even after she deemed it tasty.

Trader Joe's announced on Instagram that this sweet treat is back for a limited time, declaring it "expertly evokes the taste of a sweet & creamy" banana pudding.

One commenter, clearly doing her weekly public service, shared an idea for the ice cream. "My daughter made ice cream sandwiches with the butter waffle cookies with this, banana pudding ice cream. It was soooooo good AND super easy." (And now, in addition to the ice cream, we're adding Butter Waffle Cookies to our grocery lists.)

"Plz make this permanent," begged one fan. Another was more forceful, demanding, "Just make it permanent."

"If this tastes like Magnolias banana bread pudding I'm in trouble!" declared another (who erroneously added the word bread—Magnolia does not make banana bread pudding). Another commenter answered with a resounding "It does!!"

One person echoed what many of us were thinking as we read it, "Well, just when I thought I could go a week without going to Trader Joe's." But we're used to that. There doesn't seem to be a week when Trader Joe's doesn't introduce a new product or bring back a favorite that has us jumping in the car for an unplanned TJ's run.
