I scoured the store for something new to review this week and found these Dark Chocolate Covered Honey Grahams with Sea Salt. I'm not sure if they're actually new, or if I've just never noticed them before. I found them right next to the regular graham crackers.
A 8-ounce tub of these babies will set you back $3.99. These are mini graham squares...you can have three of them for 150 calories...or if your brain works like mine does, 6 for 300. ;)
A mom's (my) take: OH. BABY. Remember in our last review when I said the coconut cookies were probably in my top 5 of all TJ's desserts? These just edged them out. Everything about these is perfect. The chocolate to graham ratio is spot-on...a nice thick layer of chocolate coats the top of these cookies, making the graham and chocolate amounts even. Without the sea salt, these would be good, WITH the sea salt, they're sublime. More salt and it would have been too much, less and it wouldn't have been enough. In the immortal words of Goldilocks, these are "just right." The size is also just right for when you need a little somethin' to get you through until dinner (or the next five minutes). Yeah. Add these to your list.

A teenager's (Jack's) take: The first taste that hits my mouth is the darkness of the chocolate. Now, I'm not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but no matter. It is soon to be eclipsed by the pure chocolate-ness of the outside, as well as many other flavors. The second flavor is that of the honey grahams. They provide a nice contrast to the chocolate. Then the sea salt hits like a punch in the face. Seriously, it's powerful. This interesting combination of flavors makes a delightful treat... or meal.
