Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar

March 06, 2017 in Category: What's New

Right about mid-March every year, green is on everyone’s minds. This color emphasis owes its origins to St. Patrick’s Day, whose namesake had a fondness for verdant, three-leaved shamrocks.

The question arose among our candy developers: If we created a chocolate bar as an ode to green, what exactly would that look like? Their answer is Trader Joe’s Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar.

Crafted in Ireland (perfect!), this is a Chocolate Bar made from a blend of white and dark chocolates, with the addition of natural green color. When poured into the candy-bar mold and swirled together, these ingredients create a green-ribbon effect quite unlike any chocolate bar you’ve ever seen.

Matching the green color, the rich chocolate is infused with natural mint flavor. Even more than that, there are chocolate-coated mint pieces magnifying the mint. These crunchy mint bits partner with bits of cocoa cookie biscuits to create a craveable crunch.

While this viridescent bar would make a fun St. Patrick’s Day gift (much better than a pinch!), we’d like to think it also makes the perfect anytime sweet snack for lovers of chocolate and mint.

And, lovers of value will do a jig when they find that each 2.82-ounce Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar is just $1.99. That’s just the right amount of green! Find it only at Trader Joe’s, on our shelves with the rest of our inventive and irresistible candies.
