Chocolate Almonds

New favorite snack again from Trader Joes. Thanks J for letting me scavenge around in the snack cabinet at your house. Seriously, this is like crack, well Ive never actually had crack, but this is what can easily become an addiction.

I love dark chocolate and almonds. The chocolate has bits of turbinado sugar, (for the one UK reader, it's called demerara over there), which is lighter than brown sugar. It's this crystallized sugar cane that is added into the dark chocolate and gives it sweetness with a little more crunch. But the best part is while your savoring the slightly sweet dark chocolate you'll get dab of sea salt on the tongue that just excites and enhances the whole experience.
Again, TJ's does it again. Pure indulgence and great with a nice cherry chocolate Cabernet or Port.

I think I could actually live in Trader Joe's. Do they still pack your shopping in brown paper bags? Why do youse guys call it "Turbinado" sugar?

They do still pack your food in the brown paper bags. We take ours back and forth so as to be green. SB hates my one TJ canvas bag. I heart it.

I have no idea why we call it "turbinado," I actually like "demerara" better, it's all the same going down.

G - I can't wait to see you.
