Eggnog Almonds


My local Trader Joes had a sign next to these candies, around Christmas-time…
“Oops – We bought too many of these; our mistake is your gain. Reg. price $3.99. Now $1.99”


Who could resist such a come-on? I bought some to try …and they are actually quite tasty.

They are good-size almonds inside with a white chocolate outer coating, and they do taste like “Eggnog”. They have that flavor profile and spices. You can see flecks of nutmeg in the coating.

As I’m a dark chocoholic I normally avoid anything with white chocolate (no cacao? thats not chocolate) as a waste of flavorless calories, but the spices make this into something tasty. Try them if you see them , especially for the overbuy “mistake” price.
