Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Belgian Flaked Truffles

As many times as we've posted our Sweet on Trader Joe's "Saturday" on Sunday, we really should call these "Sweet on Trader Joe's WEEKEND."

Anyhoo.  Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Belgian Flaked Truffles. You'll find these in the holiday candy section. A box of 16 truffles costs $2.99.

I didn't realize until I got these home and read the back of the box that inside are 8 milk chocolate and 8 dark chocolate truffles.

A mom's (my) take: These aren't my favorite. (That's what we taught Jack to say when he was little and didn't like a food served to him.) I feel guilty saying this about chocolate, but I did not like these. The milk chocolate truffles were a bit bland and chalky. The dark chocolate ones were better, but still with a strange texture and lacking in flavor. That's ok...there are so many other holiday treats at Trader Joe's that I LOVE; I'll spend my money on those.
Overall rating: 2 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: I LOVE these. It's really interesting how the consistency can be so light yet be tasty and rich in flavor at the same time... That's really all I have. Get them. Now.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. Imagine the coincidence, we just tried these yesterday. I liked them. They have a subtle, deep chocolate taste. My rating is 4 out of 5. :)

  4. We don't have Trader Joe's in Canada but I always like reading your reviews for when we go visit relatives in the States. Trader Joe's goodies have made it into a few Christmas packages over the years, lucky us!

    I do have to say that I was almost shocked to read the "They're not my favorite" line because that is EXACTLY verbatim what we taught our kids to say growing up when they tried something new if they weren't too keen on it. I didn't want kids yelling "Yuck!" or "Gross!" after I spent time cooking something for them! They still to this day (they will be 11 in January) say "It's not my favorite". I love to see that another mom thought the same way :)
