When you get an urge for a snack, and you aren't looking for a whole meal, what do you reach for? Chips, cookies, whip cream? Why not try some delicious nuts. As the new york street carts call them, Nuts 4 Nuts. They usually have some type of sugary spiced glaze, with cinnamon, nutmeg or both. I am here to tell you about a different sort of snack nut. A recent find at your local Trader Joe's.
My house mate has been eating these for months, and is always more than willing to share.
The item: Dark Chocolate Almonds
The description: "Made with Belgian chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt and turbinado sugar"
The size: 10 oz. (248 g) of goodness
Now, if you knew me, genetically speaking, I come from a long line of Chocolate Monsters or Chocoholics. However, I was born with the milk chocolate gene. My mother is a big fan of the Dark, and would absolutely love these (too bad there isn't a Trader Joe's near her).
At first, I was skeptical of trying these, as a) Almonds aren't my favorite nut, and b) Dark isn't my favorite chocolate. With the urging of both John David, and Joe (house mates), I gave in anyway.
The crunchiness of the almond finishes off the quick snack, and leaves you begging for more. My suggestion, is to never try one of these, cause if you do, you will be buying them for life.
