Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Drizzled Plantain Chips review

Happy Easter Monday! We took Easter weekend off to eat some peanut butter eggs (and maybe peanut butter egg-stuffed cookies) and are back today with a Trader Joe's review. Dark Chocolate Drizzled Plantain Chips Sprinkled with Sea Salt. That's a long name!

A 6-ounce bag of the Dark Chocolate Drizzled Plantain Chips costs 2.99. The chips contain no added sugar other than what is in the chocolate. Serving size is 1/2 cup!
