TJ's 100 Calorie Milk Chocolate BarsI discovered this new treasure at Trader Joe’s yesterday: 100 calorie chocolate bars. They come in two varieties, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. I was in the mood for milk chocolate, so I went with those. Now I’m kicking myself for not getting one of each!

In the box are five individually wrapped chocolate bars, each weighing .63 ounces. A box sells for $1.99, so that’s roughly $.63 per ounce. This compares favorably with Hershey’s 100 calorie chocolate bars, which go for around $.79 per ounce.

The chocolate bars themselves are thin and long. This seemed a bit odd until I realized that the shape actually enhances the experience, as it allows the chocolate to melt more easily in your mouth. Add to that the smooth texture and rich chocolate taste and you have a delightful little treat with only 100 calories!
