Every now and again I pick things up and if I didn't have this blog, I would have passed over them. Thankfully I do have this blog, because unlike some of the other items I've tried recently, here is a hidden gem, if you have a sweet tooth.
Now, I'm no chocolate aficionado. But when something hits my palate I know what I like.
I like these.
Now, I didn't look at the back of the bag to see what I was getting. And when I poured a few into my hands I was taken back.
These are covered in powdered sugar.
Lots of it.
Black pants are ill advised when consuming these. Trust me.
Despite looking like river rocks in the palm of my hand these were yummy.
With one exception: I wished they were in dark chocolate.
Despite that one wish, I had no problem having a serving or two of these. They managed to be salty, sweet, crunchy, and nutty all in each bite.
Within each chocolate is a toffee coated pecan. This hits that sweet and salty mark. The milk chocolate doesn't add much here and the powdered sugar mutes the chocolate further.
Regardless, each bite is delicious.
For those calorie counting people out there, consider yourself warned: while the package says a serving is 4 pieces, I can't imagine how they measured that. My pieces ranged from small pebble sized up to full river rock sized. That's a huge variation (check out the pictures below).
If you aren't counting calories, then this is a solid bag to pick up. While I'm disappointed it isn't dark chocolate, it still has so many fabulous elements in each bite: nutty, sweet, salty, chocolatey, crunchy, smooth, and straight up delicious. Each bag will set you back $3.49.
Would I buy this again? While Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate and Honey Toffee Pecans won't be a regular purchase, but they are delicious.
