Hello fellow Trader Joe's (and cookie) lovers!!!
Today, kiddo and I are reviewing the Dark Chocolate Chunk and Almond Cookies. Trader Joe's describes these as "...all butter, crispy cookies...made with lots of dark chocolate chunks and California almond pieces."A tub (don't you love buying desserts by the tub?) will set you back $3.99. There about about 36 little cookies in each container.
My take: As soon as I spied these in TJ's, I thought, "well, I'll polish those off in about 24 hours." I didn't love them, though. I can't say I taste much almond in these, but they are crunchy. If you're a cookie/milk dunker, you might like them a little more.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kiddo's Take: One word: addictive. The enjoyable crunchiness and perfect amount of almond flavor are often interrupted by pops of delectable sweetness from the not-too-dark, yet not-too-milky, chocolate chunks. I could definitely polish these off in less than 24 hours. Beat that, Mom.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
