Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries

Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries

We loved Trader Joe's Chocolate Coconut Almonds so much that it was time to try another chocolate covered candy...the  Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries.

(You might notice a rip in the label. That's because someone who shall remain nameless coughMrEcough opened the package pre-photo taking. Doesn't he know better by now?!?)

These are not the gooey-centered, cherry-filled chocolates from yesteryear (thank goodness!); these are dried cherries. A 12-ounce box costs $4.99.

A mom's (my) take: "I knew Chocolate Coconut Almonds, and you, sir, are no Chocolate Coconut Almonds." Don't get me wrong, I like that these are big with lots of chocolate. I like the dried cherry center, but these don't have the oh-I-can't-stop-eating-these that the coconut almonds do. The flavor didn't wow me here...instead, I'd probably get my chocolate/cherry fix by mixing dried cherries and chocolate chips in a bowl.
