Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

This post is dedicated to an old friend WH (by old I mean I've known him for a while, not in reference to his age! But I suppose it could be that too. Just kidding. :D) I have to give him and one of my old college roommates credit for converting me to Trader Joe's. But of all the people I have to credit with bringing me over to the dark side, my Trader Joe's obsession would not exist without him. He voluntarily drove a group of us (but a lot of the time just me cuz how's a girl gonna say no to my man TJ?) every week to TJ's and introduced me to things like chicken sausage and THESE BABIES. 

Good for post-run recovery, says the man who would run 10 miles before church (this all happened before the rest of us got up from our beds). One a day keeps the doctor away, like a vitamin! Except this is much better than a vitamin. We would all be taking vitamins if they were covered in dark chocolate and had delicious peanut butter centers.

Looks like a Reeses? No not really. Look at the shape. It's completely different.
Tastes like a Reeses? Definitely not. This is much better. The peanut butter tastes much better.

To me, the commercialized stuff tastes like candy. Which is fine and good but kind of whatever at the end of the day. But the dark chocolate PB cups? Bliss that melts in the mouth.

I remember a time where the 22nd St. Trader Joe's NEVER had this in stock. They had piles and piles of the milk chocolate PB cups, but the dark chocolate ones were frequently sold out. Dark chocolate changes everything y'all. 

TL;DR: Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Nostalgia and sweet creamy goodness enclosed in a smooth dark chocolate exterior. WAHH SO GOOD. 9 out of 10.

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Sliced French Brioche

"THIS IS LIKE CRACK." No it's not (but it certainly could be), but A says that's how I tend to overhype stuff. The funny thing is that I know I overhype a lot of things, so I actually try not to overhype it. Because I don't want to proclaim, "THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER TASTED" about everything I try. But sometimes I can't help it, and the overhype spills out. Anyway, this is my meager attempt at NOT overhyping this bread (because it is pretty good actually and you should give it a try but I'm trying to restrain myself). 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
