Today's Dark Chocolate with Almond Praline Filling from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) was smooth and creamy, with dark chocolate enveloping an almond flavored interior.

The almond praline flavored chocolate was part of a larger (36-piece) Trader Joe's "Belgian Chocolate Shoppe" Assortment Box (a "Product of Belgium"*).

Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week.

*Note: Trader Joe's has many suppliers that provide them products that are sold under the Trader Joe's label. The company's buyer(s) have provided customers with a variety of interesting and tasty chocolates over time. However, as with any product, one must read the ingredients to determine if there may be milk products (added lactose), or wheat/gluten (wheat syrup in the fondant sugar and elsewhere). I am hoping that the wheat listed will not bother me; but if you're very sensitive, I'd advise sticking with chocolates with a short(er) ingredient list.
