Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Cowboy Bark

Kiddo & I spend a lot of time eating together, but not as much time baking together like we used to.  At age 15, he's really more about the EATING of desserts than the making of desserts.

Oh gosh....just looking back at those "Kiddo in the Kitchen" posts has me all verklempt.

So, we decided to do a little something together called Sweet on Trader Joe's.  Every Saturday (hopefully), we'll be reviewing and rating one sweet selection from, you guessed it, Trader Joe's.

We start with Cowboy Bark.  Trader Joe's describes it as "Ruggedly Adventuresome...dark chocolate with toffee, pretzels, Joe Joe cookies, peanuts, almonds and a sprinkling of salt.
I'm pretty much sold at this point.  A 9-ounce bag sells for $3.69.

My take: Please get this out of my house.  It's perfection.  The salty, the sweet, the crunch, the chocolate...all broken into pieces which makes it just TOO easy to grab a piece (or three) every time you're near the pantry.  Delectable.  Overall Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kiddo's Take: The richness and softness of the not-too-dark dark chocolate base combined with the crunchy and flavorful taste of the pretzels, peanuts, and toffee is sure to leave you with a sweet-and-salty experience you will never forget.  Overall Rating: 5 out of 5

Trader Joe's Ruggedly Adventuresome Cowboy Bark:  it's a MUST BUY.
