Four Pound Plus Bars
We wanted to give these bars a practical name, something that spoke to their best qualities. We tossed around a few ideas, like Very, Very Large Chocolate Bars or Holy Cow This is a Big Chocolate Bar. We went with Trader Joe’s Four Pound Plus Bars. Simple & to-the-point, giving this quality chocolate a chance to shine.
Four Pound Plus Bars are made exclusively for us in Belgium by a chocolatier with more than 60 years of chocolatiering experience. If you’re acquainted with our Pound Plus Bars, these might be familiar, except for their much, much bigger size. About 4.4 pounds big, which you might have deduced from the name. That’s nearly the weight of a Chihuahua, or a two-liter bottle of water. When we say big, we mean it. The Milk Chocolate variety is smooth and really hits the spot when your sweet tooth calls. The Dark Chocolate Bar is formulated with 61% cocoa mass, so it’s dark but not super-bitter dark, and delivers a rich, intense chocolate experience.
You'll find each 70.5 ounce Trader Joe’s Four Pound Plus Bar in its own (large) cardboard box, for $14.99. Keep one stashed in your office drawer (assuming your drawers are deep) for emergencies. They might be too big for stuffing stockings (unless, of course, you have large stockings), but a Bar this big is worthy of its own ribbon-wrapped package anyway. Seriously.
