Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Chocolate Almond Horns

Back to the bakery section we go for this week's Sweet on Trader Joe's installment.  I tend to overlook this section of the store...it's on a table tucked in the back of the produce department.

Trader Joe's Chocolate Almond Horns.  I spied the box and there was no question; THIS is what we would be reviewing this week.

Described as "soft almond cookies dipped in dark chocolate," this 9-ounce box of cookies costs $4.49.  There were 5 crescent-shaped cookies in our box.

A mom's (my) take: Oh. My. Gosh.  This lover of almond and chocolate has met her true love.  The almond-laden cookies are chewy...similar to a macaron...and fairly thick. Made with almond flour and sliced almonds, these cookies are an almond-lover's dream. They're generously dipped in dark chocolate, making these almond crescents even more irresistible.  I'm almost sorry that I know these exist.  If you're a fan of almond like I am, you're going to go ga-ga over these.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: These, in my opinion, are a differently shaped, chewy, and much more delicious version of a biscotti. The chewiness of the cookie itself is actually a delight to eat, and a powerful, classic almond flavor is complemented by a rich chocolate coating. I just ate, but I'm sure it's well worth stuffing myself just to have another one of these.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
