Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 111 - Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels
This little candy is very, very nice! Each morsel is a good size – not like some
other candies where you eat ONE and feel like you have already had enough (or
too much) sweet. Nope – these are well
proportioned little candies! The
nutritional label says a serving size is 11 pieces!! (For me that is stretching it a bit – I would
say serving size is about 8 per sitting, but maybe I am kidding myself).
Yum - this is a good treat!
Each piece of candy in this bag has a really good BALANCE – the
creamy caramel in the center has a butterscotch taste that melts in your mouth,
there is a touch of sea salt (but no hard chunks of sea salt, this is DELICIATE
my friends) and the chocolate is dark and it holds everything together
Each piece is about the size of a penny
I think this may be an ADULT CANDY.We snuck it into the circus the other night
(shhhh!) so we could have a nice (and cheap) snack during an outing with our
teenage nephew.I think he stopped at
ONE PIECE (unheard of for a teenage boy, right??) so it seems like the taste
might be for a “grown up” palate.(Hey,
that was fine with us, leaves more for Uncle David and Aunt Susan!)
Find these at your Trader Joe's and give them a try
We will get these again.And who knows, perhaps we will follow the “serving suggestion” noted on
the front of the package and actually display them in a BOWL instead of
snarfing them right out of the bag!
