Okay, most of those who know me will know I am a Trader Joe’s fanatic. In true fanatic form, here’s my Yelp review for my local TJ. Anyways, I mention the items below and many others in my review, but these specific items I highlight below are the ones I can’t stay away from.
Trader Joe’s Chocolate Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert
Made with Coconut Milk
This is delicious! It’s chocolate enough and ice cream enough to seductively satisfy those sweet, indulgent cravings but it’s non-dairy, and I love that. Getting older makes you realize that so much of the food you used to eat was shitty food that you shouldn’t be eating. They only come in Ben & Jerry’s size pints, which I’m not a fan. I want more! Oh, Trader Joe’s how you tease me….
Trader Joe’s Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar
Dark Chocolate Almonds
Okay, right off I am going to warn you that these are DANGEROUS. I bring a small bag to work and cannot keep my hands out of it. Each and every one is crunchy, chocolatey, salty. They are so balanced in their dangerous deliciousness that when I think to have one, I must have one. I suppose it’s not so bad; each one’s roughly 17 calories. Oh, Trader Joe’s how do you do it…
I’m starting to think I have to force myself into Trader Joe’s employment to at least get paid for this kind of enthusiasm. Ahh, food.
