Vienna Coffee Meringues
Do you feel like you have your head in the clouds? Well, if your head is up there, then your mouth must be up there, too. What better morsel to meet you in such a celestial status, than a divinely classic cloud-like delicacy, with a coffee-infused twist?
Although it’s hard to believe, Trader Joe’s Vienna Coffee Meringues aren’t exactly interstellar. These fluffy fantasies actually come to us from a bakery in San Marcos, California. They are carefully crafted by beating together egg whites, causing the proteins to unfold and recombine into a new structure around air bubbles and sugar. Coffee flavor and ground coffee beans are added, resulting in a light, fluffy indulgence with a complex sweetness and an alluring aroma of roasted coffee beans. Take a bite, and the airy cookie crumbles give way to a melty creaminess, mimicking the whipped cream atop roasty espresso in a Viennese coffee.
Clearly, their cloud-like wonderment extends to the nutrition facts, as our Vienna Coffee Meringues are kosher (dairy), and have zero grams of fat and just 20 milligrams of sodium per four-meringue serving. Enjoy them with a shot (or two) of freshly brewed Shade Grown Ground Espresso Blend, or crumbled atop a bowl of Coffee Bean Blast Ice Cream.
We’re aware that one might say we have our head in the clouds to exchange a 7.75 ounce container of
Trader Joe’s Vienna Coffee Meringues for just $3.49. So be it.
