I caught Jack at home today in between social engagements long enough to force him to eat some chocolate. (Just kidding, I didn't have to force him to eat chocolate. I trained him better than that.)
Today, we're reviewing Trader Joe's Chocolate Marbles. Twelve come in a box and sell for $4.99.
A mom's (my) take: Ok, these are just beautiful. Stunning. Maybe the prettiest little truffles I've ever seen. Creamy centers, slightly crisp shell...the center flavors come through while still having a definite milk chocolate presence. Godiva truffles are the chocolates against which I judge all other chocolates. These aren't quite as good as Godivas, but get .5 extra points for presentation.
Overall rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: These are awesome. Of the flavors I tried, I love the consistency and the varied flavors which were evident and came out quite nicely. The colors designating the flavors were a very nice touch!
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
