Oh dear - when these are in front of me, I cannot be stopped!

Alex said...

You must try them frozen. They go from being addictive to straight-up crack.

Diana Mieczan said...

That is so dangerous, Joanna (giggle)..I love almonds!!

Joanna Goddard said...

omg, frozen?!?!?! i want to try that! (too bad i finished the last few for breakfast this morning:)

mary shouvlin said...

so addictive! i discovered them a few weeks ago and haven't been able to turn back. yum!

Alexa said...

Trader Joe's in general is my addiction. Have you seen their honey wheat pretzel sticks?! Unbelievable.

Rachel said...

Joanna, I work at a Trader Joe's. I've tried almost everything there, and these are, hands down, no contest, the BEST thing they sell. They are so very, very dangerous that I won't let myself buy them anymore. Now if we happen to have a container open at work, that's an entirely different story! I can't eat them without smiling...something about the yummy dark chocolate followed by that burst of salty almond flavor...so good!

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, rachel, you are so funny :)

SillyHeart said...

I'm glad I am not alone on this!

Happy Friday!

Heavenly. I could eat the tub in a 5 minute sitting. But then I would have to sit for 5 minutes.

Catie said...

Oh, I LOVE these! Salty, sweet, chocolaty, nutty ... perfect!

feathermar said...

I like their dark chocolate+ espresso beans + toffee nuggets at the check out counter. They come in a happy round tin. I save the tin and spray paint it and use it to house little button magnets. Delicious first, upcycled second!

JoL - Amazon freak-a-zoid said...

oh my - LOVE LOVE LOVE - wish we had a Trader Joe's in TX

Sun Harvest does sell dark chocolate covered almonds w espresso that do come in a close second....

Stephanie said...

YES! My husband, who doesn't like dark chocolate, finished the WHOLE CONTAINER. I was livid. : )

ngrasso said...

oh my gosh.. these things are THE BEST.

Molliee said...

I am obsessed with these!!! they also come in a mix of milk chocolate and dark chocolate which are also divine

Magatha-May said...

oh these seem really good - I wish there was a Trader Joes in Ireland

Kristin Mc said...

I heart Trader Joe's! Only problem is that I live in Texas... however, just read an article yesterday that they are scouting new sites for TJ stores in Texas and should be opening in early 2012! Thanks to your lovely post, now I'm even more excited!!!

My Two Cents ...before I spend it said...

mmm, they look dangerous! I love anything covered in chocolate!

Sobrina Tung said...

i've never tried them but will pick some up now this weekend... or should i not even get started??

Suse said...

egads. don't get me started.

Andrea said...

Aahh Joanna! I LOVE Trader Joe's. I have yet to try these (although I pretty just made them a necessity pick-up on the way home - especially after Rachel's comment) but I HAVE had their Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds - which are heavenly. Check 'em out. :)

Eme said...

Hum...probably delicious :)

PoetessWug said...

No I haven't, but they are now on my "Gotta try 'em now" list!! ^_^

Cathi said...

I am a big fan of any of TJ's dark chocolate candy - but this I will have to try! Happy Mom's day! xxoo :)

L E A H said...

so funny, i bought these last weekend only because the guy at the register saw me eyeballing them and he opened one container for us to try.. needless to say, they barely lasted one day!

Joanna Goddard said...

Pomegranate Seeds?! amazing!!

nickandnoragettingmarried said...

My favorites are the dark chocolate covered-cranberries and blueberries. It's healthy because it's fruit, right?

monkeyandsquirrel said...

my husband and i LOVE those!!! and they're vegan too :)

Ana Degenaar said...

I have and I am craving them so bad now.

Maureen said...

My mom got me these for Valentines day one year - they are so delicious!! We sadly do not have a TJ's in Texas :(

Christine said...

Whenever I would get any of the Trader Joe's covered nuts I would think that they would last me a week, but they would always be gone within two days. I use to be addicted to the praline ones. I miss Trader Joe's!

Amanda* said...

Danger! I can't let myself buy those, they are SO goooood!!!

Summer Athena said...

i don't think i could let myself buy them either! i love chocolate and with a little sea salt on top!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh man! I'm going there today and picking up some. I could stare in their snack aisle all day long. So many great treats!

Christina said...

Yes... Oh my gosh. They are delicious!!! Love TJ's.

Come visit me on Tumblr!

Ashlae said...

YEEEEESSSSSSS! I've only had them once - and I ate the whole container in one sitting. Thank goodness TJ's isn't in Colorado or else I'd have a serious issue on my hands.

Kristin H said...

I used to be an addict as well... to those:)

Sadie Marie said...

haha. I love this post! cute.

Hilary Grace said...

No, but yesterday I tried Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered edamame. Ohhhh man. Try that next! :)

melissa engel marterella said...

Um, those are amaziing. AMAZING. And yes, addictive. I used to keep them in my fridge.

Simone Howell said...

Makes me want to CRY!! Our Trader Joes stopped carrying these!! Waaaahhhhhh!! Along with the all time best tortilla chips (Indentity Crisis chips if you have not tried them you must go back now!!!) AND their frozen chocolate covered bananas-- It's a sad sad TJ's time here!! Enjoy!!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

YUM! there is no trader joe's within 100 miles of me, but if you're feeling friendly, ship some over? ;) ;)

Chapstick Fanatic said...

man i wish i didn't have to drive and hour and a half to get to trader joes.

Rachael said...

This is the type of thing I can't keep in the house, because I know I will inhale them all in a day or two. Same with Pirate's Booty...it's so fluffy-crunchy and addictive that I usually eat at least half the bag as soon as I bring it home!

Charmaine said...

Trader Joe's has some of the best stuff... & I say this a an Canadian where I have to go south to shop there

Michelle said...

omg these are crack. I had to force myself to stop buying them because I was making my tongue sore from all the salt.

Girly Notes said...

no I'm on a diet

Journeyin' Lady... said...

I there anything that isn't absolutely the best at Trader Joe's? There aren't enough of them in this country!

Mother of Style said...

It's so funny how many people are calling them dangerous- that is wxactly the word that popped into my head when I saw your post!

They go down far too easy, dunked in my morning coffee.

Eleanor Rae said...

These sound literally amazing! Salt, chocolate and almonds all together, why don't we have good things in th UK!? xxx

Zoë said...

Have you ever tried the chocolate covered edemame beans?? They are SO delicious!! Find them in the same place as the almonds :)

anabel said...

I'm addicted to trader joe's. these are awesome. Have you tried the cocoa batons? They're like crisp little bite size ladyfinger-ish things of perfection.

Anna Walker said...

No but I've heard about them! :D
I prefer the peanut butter cups myself though!

JennyCash said...

yes, they are awesome. they were actually my addiction last summer; so much so that it actually makes me nauseated to think about them. they were my "meal" on many summer afternoons. so, enjoy but - be careful! :)

andrea despot said...

oh man, i practically just inhaled a huge handful of chocolate-covered cashews they were so good! i know i'd love these as well!

Kiley said...

Trader Joes makes the best dark chocolate covered esperesso beans!

Allison said...

ugh. i know. i can't ever stop. so amazing ....

Christy said...

So good! You should try the Dark Chocolate Blueberries from TJs!

julia wheeler said...

these are my absolute favorites!!! totally and completely addicting.

anna i said...

I have to second (third? fourth?) the choc-covered blueberry rec. I keep them in the fridge - it's especially nice for a cool treat in summer (:

jad said...

those things are amazing!! almonds and dark chocolate are healthy so you shouldnt feel so bad...hehe.

Steph said...

Ooh, haven't had those, but did eat a whole container of the dark chocolate rocky road bites. Delish!

Anny said...

I love these....I just bought some a couple weeks ago...I live 2.5 hours from the nearest Trader Joes...so as much as I want to devour them all I must make them last!

Laura said...

Ok, here is another addiction for you to add to the mix: dark chocolate covered almonds that look like golden eggs. SO pretty and SO delicious!!

Haven't tried them, but MAN, they sounds delicious! I horribly miss not having a TJ's where I'm living now!

Liz said...

Oh man, I'm obsessed! I can't buy them :)

melissa said...

These. Are. Straight. Crack. For the love of a scale, these are straight up delish.

Gina said...

umm...so I was actually already eating some when I pulled up my blog reader and saw this post. Ha!

Harley said...

I agree like whoa.

Cassie Nafziger said...

Definately Delish!! Have you tried their biscotties?...well, don't cause you won't EVER put them down!


Love Trader Joes!

aneessa said...

Trader Joe's always does it. Somehow they seem to get me hooked on everything they sell. If you think those are habit forming, stay away from the dark chocolate peanut butter cups. You will need rehab after those :)

Marissa said...

Everything good comes from Trader Joe's.

Jessica Ochs said...

While at Trader Joe's yesterday, I convinced myself that I did not need these. I guess that I was very very wrong.

Future said...

don't try dark covered acai berries then...

kimberly said...

joanna, i don't know whether to love you or hate you for this recommendation! i just dropped my husband off at tj's (he works there) and HAD to buy these--YUM!

Amber said...

Oh gosh, leave it to trader joes. Their treats are dangerously good.

Anonymous said...

Wow, literally picked up a pack this week for the first time. So good.

Genia said...

I got these a few weeks ago and cannot stop eating them. The salty-sweet combo is amazing!

GothamPolish said...

I love all the chocolate covered things in Trader Joe's - like the espresso beans!!!

Brittany said...

i love these! but i only buy them when i'm going on a road trip because i'll eat them all in one day.

jennifer ▲ i art u said...

these are AMAZING! one of my absolute fave tj's treats! a weakness of mine for sure! :)

Style Dilettante said...

Really? When it comes to sweet meets savory I prefer the battle in my mouth to last a little longer - these are instantly way saltier than sweet! I love the chocolate coated pretzel thins myself... to the lady who's TJ's stopped stocking them, she could ask them to start again & I am certain they will be happy to accommodate!

Jennifer said...

Every time I'm at TJ's I look wistfully at these, knowing that if I take them home the container will be empty in a matter of hours. I may have to give in to the desire on my next visit!

Anda said...

my new favorite, too!! i bought them while standing in line -- spur of the moment. so dang good.

sincerefaith said...

My mom and I finished our tub of them today. I guess I have to go back to Traders tomorrow.

Melissa:: Strong Sense of Style said...

Ha, this makes me laugh. I am OBSESSED w these too but the lines at Trader Joes deter me. Might need to see if I can order online.

Annie said...

I'll have to try these! I've been obsessed with their dark chocolate pomegranate seeds = AMAZING.

Amy said...

I love those!
I often eat a couple, okay a few, after breakfast!

Say Anything Creations said...

Oh those are my favorite! Now that you have reminded me, I'll have to swing by TJ's and pick up some!

j.cro said...

OMG, these are the GREATEST!!! I love, love, LOVE them.

Merry said...

My addiction too! Trying to keep myself away as we speak! Perfect PMS food...

Rose said...

Oooh. Their cinnamon sugar almonds are heavenly too; I have braces and can't eat them anymore! ):
