Trader Joe’s Swiss Milk Chocolate with 30% Whole Hazelnuts June 2, 2009

Trader Joe's Swiss Milk Chocolate with 30% Whole Hazelnuts
Is there such a thing as crunchy Nutella? You know, like crunchy peanut butter, but with Nutella and hazelnuts? If there isn’t, there should be. I bet it’d fly off the shelves.

Until then, here’s a substitute: Trader Joe’s Swiss Milk Chocolate with 30% Whole Hazelnuts. The milk chocolate is so smooth and the hazelnuts are so tasty it’s like eating crunchy Nutella. Seriously! If you’re a Nutella fan, you have got to try this and tell me if it isn’t so. And bonus—it’s more portable than Nutella because it doesn’t come in a jar.

Granted, $3.99 for a 7 oz. bar isn’t cheap. And those 7 ounces don’t go nearly as far as one might hope. I mean, the bar looks big enough, but with all that milk chocolate and hazelnut swirling around in your mouth it disappears fast. Really fast. Like one sitting fast. But then again that might just be me. I’m addicted to Nutella.
