This week's installment features Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pretzels.
The pretzels come in a 12-ounce, foil (difficult to photograph) bag and cost $3.29. TJ's normally has a cute little description of the dessert on the package, but must have thought this one was self-explanatory. ;)
My take: These were hit or miss for me. I tested several (it's a rough job). Sometimes I would eat one and think, "meh"...and others hit just the right note of sweet and salty. When you bite into the pretzel, the "nugget" of peanut butter comes loose. That peanut butter nugget looks a lot like cat treat, which didn't add to the experience. These are good, but not my favorite. I probably would not be tempted to purchase them again.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kiddo's take: I love the fact that there is a balance between the chocolate, pretzel, and peanut butter, leaving you with a taste that is just the right amount of chocolate, not too peanut butter-y, and a bit of saltiness and crunchiness. These taste delicious! I could probably eat an entire bag of these in about a minute.
