Trader Joe's Chocolate Coconut Almonds review

This week, Jack and I are reviewing Trader Joe's Chocolate Coconut Almonds. A 12-ounce package will cost you $4.99.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Coconut Almonds review

A mom's (my) take: Oh. My. Word. Trader Joe's has a lot of yummy treats to choose from, and I'd say these just landed in my top 5. Let's start from the inside out. First, there's a crunchy whole almond in the center. That almond is covered in a coconut coating and then enrobed in a rich, thick chocolate layer. The coconut is just enough to give these a little bit of a tropical feel without hitting you over the head with a coconut. (That sounds painful.) These seem like just the sort of thing that might be served poolside under a striped cabana at the fanciest Hawaiian resort (along with a frosty coconut daiquiri). Warning: these are hard to put down.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: These are great, and the flavors all come out like they are supposed to! The first thing I tasted was the coconut, followed by the classic crunch of the almond itself. Finally, the chocolate (noticeably milky, I might add) finishes it off pretty strongly, and it seems like there is much more than a millimeter or two surrounding the almond. Overall, these are great and packed with flavor!
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
