Dark Chocolate Orange Sticks

October 11, 2017 in Category: What's New

Chocolate is divine when paired with many things: peanut butter, mint, bananas, caramel—the list goes on and on. One combination we’re particularly passionate about is chocolate and orange. Specifically, dark chocolate and orange.

After searching high and low, we’ve found a new supplier to produce our beloved Dark Chocolate Orange Sticks to our (very high) standards. In fact, they’re better than ever, because they just happen to come from the very same confectionary that churns out our wildly popular Scandinavian Swimmers!

New Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Orange Sticks are short, chubby “sticks” of orange-flavored jelly smothered in rich, dark chocolate. Their jelly centers are soft, but not at all gooey, and their gelatinous softness presents a delightful contrast to the Sticks’ thick, chocolate-y exteriors—a real textural treat. Also, per usual, our Dark Chocolate Orange Sticks don’t contain any artificial flavors. Instead, they get their bright, citrusy punch from real orange juice concentrate.

We’re selling each 10-ounce, conveniently resealable pouch (no more plastic tubs!) of Dark Chocolate Orange Sticks for $2.99—which is at least two dollars less than they’re sold for anywhere else. You’ll find them in our candy aisle.
