Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Crisps

Marisa from Trim the Fat always features these as a part of her snacks and now she even has them as a part of her Blogoversary giveaway. I was not the lucky winner, but that did not stop me from trying them out.  From the box, you can already tell that these are chocolate crisps similar to the shape of Pringles. I was expecting chocolate crisps the size of Pringles so I was slightly disappointed that they are a mini version — about 1/2 the size of a regular Pringle chip. The taste reminds me like Nestle Crunch bars, except much thinner. There are “crisps” in it just like in Nestle Crunch. Of course, I am assuming that the closer version will be the Milk Chocolate variety of these chocolate crisps. Half a serving of 6 pieces is a nice little treat already and only 110 calories worth in chocolate. Small portioned chocolate makes me happy. Thin chocolate is surprisingly very enjoyable.

Perfectly segregated into 3 sections with 12 piece in each little cabby. I have trouble remembering which side faces up and chocolate ends up on the floor. I may or may not have practiced the 5 second rule. Only 3 serving per box so these go pretty fast if you are not the only one eating these. My box was attacked by a hungry beast and did not stand a chance.

No artificial color or flavors and no preservatives.

On the box:
We’ve got a delectable sweet treat. Our dark Chocolate Crisps are wisp of rich, Belgian chocolate, curved for visual interest, and infused with crunchy bits to add some texture. These Crisps are definitely in!
