Trader Joe’s Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds


That’s right, I’m moving out of the ‘specialty’ chocolates world for a moment to write about some other chocolate.
It is a “Pound Plus” bar from Trader Joe’s, and cost a whopping $4.99 for 17.6 oz. Pretty good.
I don’t know why it is called “bittersweet”, not “dark”, because I checked the official cocoa solids percentages for both, and they were identical (minimum of 56%, I think).
Anyway, this is a really stupendous deal for just under five dollars.
Flavour is good, a little sweet for me, personally, but that’s to be expected with bittersweet, since I usually have 70% (or higher) dark chocolate.
I really loved the almonds in it. They were perfectly roasted.
This would be a good bar if you’re looking for something that you can eat a lot (or, anyway, more than usual) of, and not feel guilty for eating several dollars worth of chocolate.
I’d really like it if they had a version of the 70% dark chocolate that has almonds in it. (As I write that, though, I begin thinking that they might actually already have one. I can’t remember.)
