If there was the one-holiday product, that I wish I could go back to is review because it would have been helpful, were the Mini Peppermint Meringues. I loved and adored them. They were delicious, crisp, and melted in your mouth like it never happened. And for the most part, you could have had a relatively large serving of them and still felt pretty guilt-free. Best of all, they were straight-up excellent. Now, we have Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Cocoa Meringues to add to our carts.
Taste and review
To be honest, I haven't even got to review the standard vanilla ones that are sitting around on store shelves year-round. To me, those tasted like Lucky Charms marshmallows. But they had more of a melt-in-your-mouth feeling when you ate them.
These, they spoke to me. They said the word "chocolate." And I answered the call.
Now, to be clear on some differences, these are big. So these aren't ones you pop in your mouth with no regrets like the peppermint. And they seem a touch larger than the vanilla ones too. Each one seemed like 2-3 bites.
Unlike the vanilla ones, this didn't remind me of a marshmallow flavor. Nope, these reminded me of a cookie. Almost chocolate chip cookie-like.
They have little mini chocolate chips in each one, plus there is a good amount of cocoa flavoring each one of these. But they also melt in your mouth. But that's because a meringue for the most part is just sugar and egg whites. Thus they are also labeled as being gluten-free.
I wasn't complaining. Plus, three of these make for a serving. Those three large meringues are also just 90 calories.
And three is sufficient to scratch the itch of wanting something sweet.
For $3.69 these aren't bad. They aren't totally guilt-free, but still better than reaching for a box of cookies.
Would I buy this again? I'm more likely to reach for Trader Joe's Chocolate Chip Cocoa Meringues than I am a box of cookies. Just as much sugar, just less guilt at 30 calories each.
