Just a couple of weeks ago I tried Trader Joe's Almond Butter Cups. They were sweet, but not too sweet. And yes, they were oh so very good. They had a nice shell of dark chocolate and the filling was nutty, but not the classic peanut butter filling. A really fun spin on a classic with the new Trader Joe's Organic Dark Chocolate PB and J Minis.
And now we have yet another spin on a classic.
Here we have Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups made into a square shape and with the simple addition of raspberry filling.
While I didn't think that would make much of a difference, I actually really dig these little candies.
Just not the price with the size bag.
For $2.99, you get 8 bite sized pieces. So this bag is tiny. Portion controlled if you will.
And sadly, despite this being made of dark chocolate, this is NOT vegan. There is milk chocolate in the ingredient list. So this dark chocolate isn't quite as bittersweet as I would have liked either.
Now despite those gripes, the 8 tiny pieces that I had were delicious.
The choice of raspberry over other flavors here is important. Most importantly, they chose seedless raspberry for the filling. But it added a nice touch of sweetness and acidity.
So if you are looking for a portion controlled snack, then consider picking up this little bag. But if you like your snacks less sweet, then stick with the Almond Butter cups as these add a sweet burst of flavor here.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe's Organic Dark Chocolate PB and J Minis again.
