Name: Cheesecake Crepe Escape

Brand: Trader Joe's

Origin: Monrovia, CA

Found at: Trader Joe's (265 Winston)

Cost: $3.49

Ingredients: Filling (ricotta cheese, strawberries, sugar, vanlla powder, cinnamon), crepe (unbleached wheat flour, pasteurized whole egs, canola oil, sugar, salt)

Calories per serving: 170

Why I bought it: It was a bit of a stressful day and a crepe escape sounded like the perfect break from reality.

Tasting notes: Crepe Escape is also available in quinoa, pizza, and ham and cheese varieties, but this one is great for satisfying the sweet spot; it's sweet but not too sweet. Half is more than enough for one sitting.

Would I buy it again? I tend to enjoy making my own crepes, but I will buy this again in lazier moments.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: This is a brand-new item for Trader Joe's, so there's little written on it so far.
