Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Toffee Chips

This morning I was part of a live chat on Julia Usher's site, Cookie Connection as a little prelude to Cookie Con. (Did you know there's an actual conference for cookie decorators? It's true!)

While as I was chatting about cookies, I sent Jack to Trader Joe's to pick out our review item. Actually, I sent him with my debit card, but forgot to give him the pin. Oops! See? You can even embarrass your teenager when you're not with them! Don't worry, I reimbursed him.

OK...we're reviewing Trader Joe's Toffee Chips. TJ's describes these as "a mix of milk and dark chocolate enrobed toffee chips." An 8-ounce box will set you (or your kid) back $3.49.

A mom's (my) take: Well, I would definitely say these are more than "chips!" The toffee pieces are thick and crunchy with a generous chocolate coating. The toffee is buttery and rich tasting, while the chocolate adds a nice touch. Normally, I'm a dark chocolate girl, but I preferred the milk chocolate here. As a bonus, the box is cute and would make a great addition to a gift basket or a little treat for a friend.
Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: I LOVE these. At first, the chocolate smells a bit dark, and it probably tastes that way too. However, the generous amount of flavorful toffee makes quick work of any dark taste. I mainly enjoy these because I am a pretty big toffee fan. If you are one, then get these A.S.A.P. If you aren't one, well... I don't know what to tell you.
You'll probably still love them.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
