Lucky One – I have 3 Trader Joe’s near my home!

Are you one of the lucky ones to have a Trader Joe’s in your neighborhood? I’m not going to lie, I have three Trader Joe’s within a reasonable driving distance from my home. Three!!! Three means that if I can’t find what I’m looking for at my home store, chances are one of the other two stores will have what I need.

I went into Trader Joe’s today to pick up some Roasted Garlic & Herb Butter which we will be generously spreading all over our Steak and Lobster for tonight’s dinner (it’s my hubby’s birthday). As I was quickly going through the store because I was on my way to meet the birthday boy for lunch I came across Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups! What????

We’ve all heard of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which are made with milk chocolate, they’re pretty good, but it’s not dark chocolate. We are huge dark chocolate fans in this household! The darker and almost bitter the better. So you can just imagine my reaction when I saw these beautiful little bits of pieces of chocolate heaven near the register. Of course I quickly grabbed a container and placed it on the conveyor belt, the dark chocolate peanut butter cups were coming home with me!

I made it home and showed the birthday boy what I found and we quickly opened up the package to taste the deliciousness that awaited us. As the package states, creamy peanut butter is covered in decadent dark chocolate. AHHHHHHHHHHHH Happiness!!! I can’t express to you how amazing it tastes to have the right type of chocolate combined with another one of our favorite ingredients. Please tell me that you agree that these little chocolates are pretty. At $4.99 per container you can’t afford to not buy a couple of these yummy treats. Sometimes late at night we (more like I) get a chocolate craving and one of these beauties will certainly do the trick to curb and fulfill that need.

Now if only they could make a dark chocolate covered tequila product, oh boy would we be in some major trouble. Speaking of tequila, my mama came over and brought my hubby a bottle of his (ours) favorite tequila as a birthday gift… Herradura Tequila we might be having pre-dinner cocktails tonight with this beautiful bottle.

One of my favorite ways of staying informed on new products, what’s arriving or returning is to regularly check the Fearless Flyer page offered by Trader Joe’s, here’s the link

If you’re not one of the lucky ones to have a Trader Joe’s nearby, I was able to find these exact same treats via Amazon. I’m not sure who is selling them at Amazon, but they are certainly worth buying!

A little bit of Trader Joe’s “Bell Ringing” trivia, One bell lets the Crew know when to open another register. Two bells mean there are additional questions that need to be answered at the checkout. Three bells call over a manager-type person. And Three short bells–two long bells–three short bells… now they’re just playing.

If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s maybe it’s time to move, I can help you with that too if you plan on moving to California! Wishing you lot’s of good food to EAT, lots of great places to TRAVEL too and lots of FUN.
