What's Good at Trader Joe's?

Trader Joe's Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds

Nathan Rodgers, his wife Sonia, and their friend Russ Shelly and his wife Sandy set out almost two years ago to review the cult grocer's some 4,500 products for their site What's Good at Trader Joe's?, and so far they've covered more than 300 products. While the reviewers are fans of Trader Joe's, they take reviewing seriously — their first review was even negative. Here's their process:

• They rate products on a scale of one to 10, 10 being the best.

• For any post, two people rate the product.

• Reviewers give their overall impression and up to five points each.

For Russ, Sonia, Shelly, and Sandy, Trader Joe's Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds fell into the category of Sugary Impulse Buys. Noted Russ, "You know that row, with all the frozen goodies down below and the candies up above? That’s Temptation Lane right there, partner. There’s way too much to choose from, so we might’ve missed one of your favorites, but we’re the ones with the blog." Here's their take on the product:

Trader Joe's Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds (7.5/10 points)

We tend to think these are a tad overrated, but that doesn’t mean they’re not any good. If these nutty treats were left off the list, our fans would be storming the castle with pitchforks. Read more about this product on What's Good at Trader Joe's?

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Almonds

These Trader Joe’s dark chocolate almonds are a great semi-healthy snack with just the right amount of crunch and sweetness. These are among my favorite almond treats at TJs, but they now are competing with the Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar Dark chocolate almonds! Both varieties are great, but these classic ones are really easy to eat a whole handful without even blinking. Sometimes I’ll stroll up to the pantry with every intention of just having a few. Then I get the dark chocolate and the almond flavor and end up dusting at least 10. But because they have dark chocolate on them, they must be totally healthy. Or something. It’s hard to go wrong with this combo of almonds and dark chocolate. Just have a few extras on hand in the pantry………….

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds

Where do these little treats rank for everyone in terms of Trader Joe’s snacks and sweets? If I feel like having a bit of sweetness but not going overboard on sugar, these are usually what I reach for. But all things being equal, I’d probably first have the sea salt caramels or a spoonful of Trader Joe’s cookie butter. I kind of put these dark chocolate almonds in their own category of semi-healthy part snack, part treat. Let me know if there is any really delicious food or drink that goes really well with these. I think I once dropped a few in my coffee and it just stripped the chocolate off the almond, leaving my coffee with a pleasant dark chocolate taste and the crunchy almonds to eat at the end of my cup of coffee! Check out these options if you can’t make it to TJs …..
