Milk or Dark (72%)
This is a WOW! of a deal on some seriously wonderful chocolate. Trader Joe's Fair Trade Organic Belgian Milk Chocolate and Belgian Dark Chocolate Bars are made just for us in Belgium using high quality cocoa beans that are organically grown and fairly traded. The chocolatier responsible for crafting these bars does one thing: chocolate. That means they choose the right beans and blend them in exactly the right way, with the result being truly stellar chocolate bars.
Our Fair Trade Organic Milk Chocolate Bar is smooth and creamy, a little sweet, and melts in your mouth. Fair Trade Organic Dark Chocolate Bar is 72% cacao, so it's quite dark, very rich, and full-bodied in your mouth. These are chocolates to be savored, chocolates for which you'd expect to pay a premium. But this is Trader Joe's, and we do things differently, so we're selling each of these 3.5 ounce bars for a mere $1.99. Should you be inclined to "gift" chocolate for any reason, you can say a lot with these bars without spending too much of your hard earned cash…
