Organic Dark Chocolate Bar with Almonds

There are two types of people in the world: those that like milk chocolate and those that like dark chocolate. I’m a fan of milk chocolate, while my husband is a fan of dark chocolate. So when he brought home this Trader Joe’s organic dark chocolate bar with almonds, I’ll admit I was a little hesitant to try it. Would it be good enough to win over a milk chocolate lover?

What makes Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bar with almonds ideal?

When picking dark chocolate, it’s ideal to pick one with a higher percentage of cocoa (70% or higher) for a bittersweet taste and its health benefits. 

Some of those health benefits:

  • Minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc
  • Antioxidants such as flavonoids that may reduce inflammation
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Stimulating the release of endorphins to improve one’s mood
  • Improved cognitive function from stimulants such as caffeine 

You’re in luck because Trader Joes’ dark chocolate bar with almonds has 73% cacao. It’s made from organically grown cacao beans too. After learning this, I had to eat a few pieces!

How does Trader Joe’s dark chocolate bar with almonds taste?

It’s moderately bittersweet with a contrasting taste between the almonds and chocolate. The almonds deliver a satisfying crunch.

While it doesn’t boast the same feeling of elegance as some higher-end chocolates like Dandelion Chocolates, which is popular in my area, it doesn’t cost as much either. Priced at just $1.99, you can eat several bars without breaking the bank. And it’s better tasting than the more commonplace Hershey’s dark chocolate. 

While the bar wasn’t enough to convert me to a dark chocolate lover, it’s a solid choice for a dark chocolate bar and will satisfy a craving for a bite of it any day. It may become your go-to choice for an affordable and delicious dark chocolate experience.
