Chocolate Raspberry Sticks from Trader Joe's... It's Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Heaven
Apr 27, 2009
When it comes to chocolate, I love the dark... but not super dark. I like my chocolate between 50% to 60% dark. Also, when it comes to chocolate, I'm not easily surprised. I've tried chocolates from "around the world"... or at least that's what the box said. So when I tried Trader Joe's "Chocolate Raspberry Sticks", I wasn't expecting anything amazing. But then I took my first bite... and I was very pleasantly surprised :)
The dark chocolate covered raspberry jelly sticks really create a wonderfully delicious combo. It's like a "one two" punch to your taste buds and I dare you to resist eating just one. Also, this snack contains no artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, and is vegetarian friendly (no gelatin). They're not for Vegans though because they do contain Milk Fat. If you like Oranges more than Raspberries, these dark chocolate sticks also come in "Orange" flavor. The 'chocolate orange sticks' taste really good too.. but I think the Raspberry ones taste better.
Also, for the price ($4 for a one pound container) ... it's worth every penny. Seriously, you need to try this if you love dark chocolate, raspberries... or both. The only bad thing I can think of is that they are highly addictive. So consider yourself warned :)
Pros: -Divinely Delicious -No Artificial Colors, Flavors... and No Preservatives -Vegetarian Friendly (not Vegan-friendly though) -18 ounces (1 pound and 2 ounces) for $4 -Also comes in chocolate covered Orange Jelly flavor.
Cons: -Highly Addictive and Habit Forming :) (I ate like... 5 of these during the course of writing this review!)
Conclusion: In the words of that wise man named "Weird Al"... Just eat it! :)
