Trader Joe's Crispy Peanut Butter Filled Milk Chocolate Peanuts review

A 4.94-ounce bag costs $2.69. I have never seen these before, so I think they might be new. Is it sad that I visit Trader Joe's often enough...and walk down every aisle each time...to spot something new? The description on the bag reads, "...peanut-shaped milk chocolate filled with peanut butter & crispy rice."

Let's review Trader Joe's Crispy Peanut Butter Filled Milk Chocolate Peanuts.


She says: Well, I'm in love. The creamy peanut butter enveloped by a thick milk chocolate shell - think peanut butter cups. But, what MAKES these for me are the bits of crispy rice. Not too much, not too little...just right. My only complaint: there aren't enough in the bag. Or maybe...there are too many in the bag, and a single-serve pack would be the better option for me and my waistline. 

Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars


He (Mr. E) says: The crispy rice is the ingredient that makes this a treat for my taste buds.  Great balance of chocolate and PB!  Serving size of 3 pieces might work for some people.  But for a novice taste-tester like me, I chose to do a second round.  If you like milk chocolate, these won't disappoint!

  1. Seeing the picture of initially, I made a sound I can't quite describe. I don't care for milk chocolate or creamy peanut butter, but I am here for this bag of goodness. Maybe I can talk TJ into dark chocolate crunchy PB, but this will do for now. Thank you for sharing this. BTW, I really enjoyed the chocolate drizzled plantain chips you featured the last time.
