Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries review

We loved Trader Joe's Chocolate Coconut Almonds so much that it was time to try another chocolate covered candy...the  Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries.

(You might notice a rip in the label. That's because someone who shall remain nameless *coughMrEcough* opened the package pre-photo taking. Doesn't he know better by now?!?)

These are not the gooey-centered, cherry-filled chocolates from yesteryear (thank goodness!); these are dried cherries. A 12-ounce box costs $4.99.

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries review

A mom's (my) take: "I knew Chocolate Coconut Almonds, and you, sir, are no Chocolate Coconut Almonds." Don't get me wrong, I like that these are big with lots of chocolate. I like the dried cherry center, but these don't have the oh-I-can't-stop-eating-these that the coconut almonds do. The flavor didn't wow me here...instead, I'd probably get my chocolate/cherry fix by mixing dried cherries and chocolate chips in a bowl.
Overall rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: For me not being an enormous fan of cherries or dark chocolate, these are pretty good. The dark chocolate coating is just a tad bit hard, and you have to chew through it a bit before you can really enjoy the cherry. I will say, however, the cherry's flavor really comes out strong and is preserved well! I may not eat the whole box of these, but definitely quite a few.
Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries: We'll finish them off, but probably not buy again.
