New Product Alert! Trader Joe’s Naples Style Sfogliatella Pastry

What Is Sfogliatella?

Sfogliatella (sometimes called “lobster tail” or sfogliatelle) is a traditional Italian pastry made from layers of buttery pastry dough and a sweet cream filling.

Just last week, Trader Joe’s released their own version of sfogliatella in stores, and TJ’s shoppers can’t stop talking about it. The filling on the TJ’s Sfogliatella is made with ricotta cheese and candied orange, giving it a unique and rich flavor.

TJ’s Naples Style Sfogliatella Pastry

We first heard about this exciting new TJ’s product via the unofficial r/traderjoes page on Reddit, where it was announced as a new product find on April 13th, 2023. 

Found in the frozen dessert section near the ice cream, four-count boxes of Trader Joe’s Sfogliatella Pastry are currently available for $4.99.

Trader Joe’s also sells bags of frozen Eggplant Parmigiana Sfogliatelle, which are mini lobster tail pastries filled with cheese, tomato, and eggplant (yum). That savory product was first released in 2022 to rave reviews from customers…

Ingredients & Calories

Unfortunately, because this is such a new product, we haven’t been able to get our hands on the official ingredients and nutrition information just yet. Trader Joe’s has yet to list the product on their website, and no one else has shared the info online. When I tried to find these pastries at my local TJ’s, I came up empty handed.

That said, we do know that these pastries are made with lots of dairy, in both the dough and the filling. And it’s also safe to assume that the dough is made with wheat flour. So, these pastries are most certainly not vegan or gluten free.
