The pros: Trader Joe's Joe's Dark Coffee Squares are for you if you enjoy your coffee black and have a sweet tooth. Trader Joe's Dark Coffee Squares might satisfy both.
The cons: If you don't care for the taste of black coffee, this isn't for you.
The verdict: For $2.99 you get a bag containing just over a dozen chocolate squares. This is one of those rare product where the chocolate is not pronounced as the coffee. The coffee flavor reminds me of a dark French Pressed coffee flavor. It hits you right away. While the ingredients list ground coffee, the texture here is completely smooth. While the package said Trader Joe's Dark, I'm pretty sure that refers to the coffee and not the chocolate.
The chocolate here is sweet but hard to get past the coffee flavor. Usually chocolate and coffee play well together. One usually highlights the other. In this case the chocolate was the medium for you try their coffee. I personally wasn't crazy for this and I'll find someone else to finish the bag for me. The coffee is very strong on this one. If dark coffee (and chocolate) is your thing then this is worth a try.

Would I buy this again? For me, Trader Joe's Dark Coffee Squares is a no. It was way too strong of a coffee flavor and I prefer my chocolate stronger than any other flavor. If you are a coffee and a chocolate lover then you might really like these.
