Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday : Sponge Candy

This week we're reviewing Trader Joe's Sponge Candy. We'd never seen it in store before, so of course, that meant we had to immediately buy a package.

Weekly review of Trader Joe's sweets and desserts from a mom and teenager perspective. This week: Trader Joe's Sponge Candy.

Trader Joe's Sponge Candy comes in an 8-ounce package and costs $3.49. The package says it's "sugar candy covered in milk chocolate" and "made in small batches."

A mom's (my) take: This is my first time eating sponge candy. I've seen it on blogs and in cookbooks and it always looks appealing to me. The center of the candy is crunchy, and at the same time, light and airy. Taste-wise, it's similar to toffee, but much lighter in texture. There's a generous coating of milk chocolate all the way around. Adding to its charm is the fact that the pieces vary in size, giving it a candy-shop or homemade feel.  
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: This is a very tasty and intriguing candy! Besides the classic milk chocolate covering, I love the "sponge" most of all. It fractures cleanly with each bite, which is very convenient if you're looking to limit crumbs. Although it's made of sugar, the candy has a lovely buttery taste. The only downside is that the candy has a tendency to stick to one's teeth (a lot), but there's an upside even to that: you can enjoy remnants of the flavor long after you've finished eating! :)
