Two corn griddle cakes with a layer of mozzarella cheese in the middle.

HEAVENLY! I saw the new arepas in the freezer section & actually exclaimed out loud, “ I love Trader Joe’s!”!! I watched a Netflix show that was set in Colombia and the characters were eating “Arepas”—they looked delicious. I was curious to try them because I love anything with corn & cheese. San Francisco has some fancy-schmancy restaurants that do offer arepas, but they seemed complicated (jackfruit, chorizo, etc…). I just wanted to try a simple arepa with cheese. Anyway, I just happened to stumbled upon the new arepas at Trader Joe’s! Omg! The Trader Joe’s Arepas are amazing! Scrumptious even! The arepa itself is kind of a cross between a corn tortilla and the masa of a tamale then grilled. The Trader Joe’s arepas are made with sweet corn and are shaped like tortillas with a slice of cheese smushed in between 2 arepas. Just defrost and throw in a pan. They came out perfect—a slight crisp on the outside, soft inside, and melty cheese in between. Mouthwatering! If you like Latinx cuisine—these are a “must-try”— you’ll love these arepas! Note: Try with a side of black beans & avocado. I think I even like these better than pupusas & definitely better than any plain old boring quesadilla! TRADER JOE’S PLEASE KEEP THIS PRODUCT IN STOCK AS PART OF YOUR REGULAR FROZEN FOOD INVENTORY! Thank you Trader Joe’s and I love you! Your new Arepas are delicious! 5-STARS

As someone who has been to Colombia and had street Arepas, these are amazing and super authentic, also with all Trader Joes meals the pricing is great.

A little bland on it’s own, but I add a bean dip spread to it, and make some guac on top. SO yummy with those fixings!!

These are amazing! Although I can not find them in store any more. Hopefully they bring them back.

I’m so bummed, I love these to death. They’re Delicious! But more than once lately, the arepas have literally been full of pieces of plastic?!?!? Clear, plastic film. Horrifying.

I actually found these to be too sweet and sooo many carbs. Please take out the added sugar and make them taste like traditional corn cakes.
