Sweet on Trader Joe's: Almond Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets

Trader Joe's Almond Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets review

Hey Howdy Hey! We're back with a new Trader Joe's review! Today, we're (all three of us!) reviewing TJ's Almond Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets. 

We're officially in road trip season, so it's a great time to stock up on Trader Joe's snacks for the car. I love both almond butter and pretzels (see: Espresso Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or Cookie Dough Pretzels), so I was excited to give these a try for our review.

She says: It's a no from me, dawg. Gosh, I hate to say it, but I did not enjoy these. As much as I love a salty pretzel, both the salt and the pretzel flavors completely overpower the almond butter. Peanut butter pretzels are probably a classic because peanut butter can hold its own with a strong pretzel flavor. These won't be making my cut for road trip snacks, unfortunately. I still love you, almond butter and pretzels! Don't get married; you're better off as just friends.

He (Jack) says: As I guess they should be, these are identical to the usual peanut-butter-filled variety, save for the filling. However, given how much pretzel there is, it's hard to discern much about the almond butter filling at all. In fact, like the overall thing, it tastes almost identical to peanut butter--you can perceive a very slight sweetness due to the almond butter, which differentiates it from the peanut butter variety. I don't really think this very slight difference is worth it, though...unless, of course, you'd rather have almond butter, then it's just as good as the regular peanut butter! :)

Overall rating: 3 out of 5 stars

He (Mr. E) says: I grew up eating lots of pretzels, then they kinda fell off my radar until after college.  TJ’s hit a home run with these! The amount of almond butter filling and the salt on the shell is just right. They are good solo or with an adult beverage. I didn’t bother reviewing the serving size but was satisfied with at least 5. Enjoy!

Oh my! I found these reviews super interesting because Mr. E does NOT like almond butter. Hmmm... Maybe the more you like the flavor of almond butter, the less you enjoy these?
