Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday : Butter Toffee Pretzels and Virginia Peanuts

Trader Joe's Butter Toffee Pretzels and Virginia Peanuts review #traderjoesreview
You're getting a twofer review today. Mr. E wanted to try the peanuts and I wanted to try the pretzels. Compromise: we bought both.

Trader Joe's Butter Toffee Virginia Peanuts review
Trader Joe's Butter Toffee Pretzels and Butter Toffee coated Virginia Peanuts are seasonal items. The pretzels are $2.99 for a 10-ounce bag and the peanuts are $3.99 for a 12-ounce container. (The peanuts got a rave review from our cashier.)


Trader Joe's Butter Toffee Pretzels review
He (Mr. E) says: Loved, loved, loved: the Butter Toffee Pretzels. Full of flavor and a perfect crunch, couldn't stop, so I ate a bunch. Meh, meh, meh: Coated Peanuts were so-so and I'm a peanut fan. TJ's plain roasted peanuts are much more enjoyable to me. The crunch was a little harsh and the flavor...well, I couldn't pinpoint it.
Butter Toffee Pretzels: 5 of 5 stars
Butter Toffee coated Virginia Peanuts: 2 of 5 stars

She says: Batting 0 for 2 today (yep, I'm in full baseball mode; Go Astros!), I did not care much for these. (It pains me to say that because my love for Trader Joe's runs deep.) Out of the two, I liked the pretzels better, but they weren't quite sweet or salty enough for me. The peanuts were really disappointing. I was expecting a hit of salty-sweet and instead got a crunch that was not sweet and not salty. Not sure what we're going for here. The packaging is cute, though.
