Word of the day: clutch. According to Urban Dictionary, there are several definitions of clutch, but I am using it as defined: Exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.
as in “Trader Joes is clutch when it comes to unique, affordable chocolate!”
This chocolate was definitely easy to eat. It was light, but with a chalky texture. It actually reminded me of sand, but in a melt in your mouth sorta way! Sounds unappealing for chocolate, but it wasn’t bad at all. The only thing that threw me off was the pepper. I don’t think I could have this as a dessert because after each bite I had to have a baby carrot to cleanse my palate…and get rid of the spicy, scratchy feeling at the back of my throat! Don’t be taken aback, it’s definitely worth a try!
What I loved most about this chocolate is that is only has four ingredients: organic cocoa nibs, organic cane sugar, organic cracked pepper and kosher salt.
The simpler, the better!
I liked how it was pocket sized and travel friendly (I know…chocolate IS travel friendly, but girl jeans have small pockets and this one fit in mine okay?).
This chocolate circle was $1.49 at Trader Joe’s for 2.6oz. Most of their 3 oz bars are $1.99, so that works out to be around .66 cents an ounce, and this worked out to be about .57 cents an ounce. I’d say that’s a pretty nice difference. And its also not too much chocolate, share it with a friend…that would be clutch : )
Talk to me: Have you tried this TJ’s Salt & Pepper Dark Chocolate? Would you?
