Dark Chocolate Collection
When we first tasted the luxurious chocolates in Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Collection, we were impressed with the originality and depth of their flavors, and astonished by the terrific price at which we could offer them. Needless to say, these passed through our tasting panel with flying colors, and made their debut at Trader Joe’s during the holiday season in 2012, wrapped in absolutely beautiful packaging. To be clear, we wouldn’t be excited about this Dark Chocolate Collection if it simply came in a pretty package. We wouldn’t be so keen on it if it was just inexpensive. For us, it has to be the total package: quality plus price equals value. And in this case, quality plus price plus great price equals an excellent holiday gift giving opportunity for the chocolate lovers on your list.
Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Collection is an assortment of dark chocolates, crafted in Ireland, with eight intriguing flavors: Brazilian Orange, Sicilian Lemon, Café Machiatto, Coconut Crumble, Chocolate Crunch, Key Lime Pie, Salted Caramel, and Simply Chocolate. They all have various shapes and visual features, and there’s something for everyone. They’re packaged in an elegant box and presented inside a tastefully-designed gift bag, ready for giving. This collection would cost you a pretty penny anywhere else. At Trader Joe’s, it’s pretty, but each eight ounce package of 16 pieces is just $6.99, many pennies less than similar collections sold elsewhere. That’s a holiday value you’ll find only at your neighborhood Trader Joe’s.
