Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Milk Chocolate Covered Mini Pretzels

This week, I sent my (now driving!) teenager to Trader Joe's to pick out our sweet for review. He chose Milk Chocolate Covered Mini Pretzels.

Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Pretzels come in a 12-ounce bag and cost $3.29. From the package description, "coated with a generous layer of velvety chocolate, then drizzled with more chocolate "stripes" for a lovely presentation."

A mom's (my) take: Coated pretzels of any kind (yogurt, chocolate...mustard) are usually trouble for me. I start eating them and can't stop. These, I did not love. The chocolate has an off-taste to me. I can't put my finger on it...and I checked the ingredient list and saw nothing out the of ordinary. I was left with a weird aftertaste and an inkling to send kiddo back to TJs for something else. Bottom line: I wouldn't buy them again
Overall rating: 2 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: These caught my eye in the store because of their simplicity. Two things I love: milk chocolate and pretzels. The chocolate actually has the smell of dark chocolate, but of course tastes like rich milk chocolate (very interesting). The pretzels have a nice crunch and consistency, and are salty as well!
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

  1. I am always tempted to buy these. I love chocolate covered pretzels and it is one of the things we always get two of otherwise my husband and I fight. Some things should not be shared!

  2. Whenever I buy these, the bag is gone in a day. No self control with these!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Happy baking! :)
