This week, we review Trader Joe's Assorted Belgian Chocolate Pumpkins. A box of 9 chocolates will cost you $2.99.
As you can see, these box contains a variety of flavors and there is a handy-dandy little key on the back of the box. You'll find: Crispy Milk Chocolate Cream, Vanilla Cream, Dark Chocolate Cream, Salted Caramel, and Coffee Ganache.
A mom's (my) take: Here's the deal...I love the idea of these. I think they would be so cute as little placecards for a Thanksgiving table. As far as the taste goes, they were good, but not stellar. The dark chocolate cream was my favorite (no surprise), but the rest were a little generic in taste. Without the key, I'm not sure I would have been able to pick out the flavors.
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These little guys pack a big punch! What I enjoy about these is the variety of flavors that come in a package, and the fact that you can actually taste the flavor that it is supposed to be! I didn't try all of the flavors, or else I might have exploded (these are pretty filling, so be careful), but the flavors I did try were magnificent. For example, the salted caramel had an awesome chocolate flavor to start it off, and a luscious, expressive caramel taste. I would definitely recommend these to, well, anybody... that is, anybody who doesn't mind gaining a few pounds of chocolate, and gaining a new appreciation for it.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
