Crispy Rice Milk Chocolate

February 05, 2014 in

We love good chocolate! You can tell it’s true by the sheer number of foods we’ve dowsed with it. Bananas, raisins, peanut butter, and potato chips are just a few items that come to mind. However, there’s one classic cocoa-combo with which we’ve never dabbled: crisped rice and chocolate. It’s time. Now, Trader Joe’s Crispy Rice Milk Chocolate raises the bar on that classic flavor fusion.

When we tasted the leading crispy rice chocolate bar (not mentioning any names, but it rhymes with Zesty Brunch) we knew we could do better. How to improve on such a classic? As usual, our approach is simple: Find and use the highest quality ingredients.

In this bar, we use only non-GMO rice. Our milk chocolate is naturally flavored with real vanilla, and is crafted in Belgium by the same manufacturer who makes our Pound Plus bars. Combine the very best chocolate with lots of crispy rice and you get a chocolately-crunchy experience—bar none.

By some miracle (we like to call it genius) we’ve managed to keep the bar high and the cost low. At $1.79 for a package of three 1.4-ounce bars, our Crispy Rice Milk Chocolate is less expensive per ounce than Zesty Brunch. You know what we mean.
