Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Nut Butter Theme Week.

Today's Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups from Trader Joe's (Monrovia, CA) were thick, creamy, sweet and satisfying.

Individually wrapped in gold foil, these filled chocolate cups were thick, creamy, sweet and satisfying. Great for hikes, personal (or work) field trips, bag lunches, etc. as long as they aren't left in direct sun.

Even then, these cups proved to be more resilience than, say, a thin, single origin dark chocolate bar, which converts to a lovely solar-induced chocolate fondue fairly quickly on a hot day. And, since we're experiencing a last blast of hot weather (edging toward triple digits) and trying to spend time outdoors, chocolate meltdowns can be avoided only with careful planning.

Chocolove - Hazelnut Butter Cup Dark Chocolate - Sept. 13, 2019

Hazelnut Butter Cup

Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Nut Butter Theme Week.

Sometimes you just want one nut butter cup in its own individually packaged serving size, to prevent you from overeating a second one.

Today's Hazelnut Butter Cup was from Chocolove (Boulder, CO). The dark chocolate cup was very creamy in texture and the filling was a slightly more textured (but also quite smooth), praline-like hazelnut butter filling.

Chocolove also makes dark and milk almond butter and peanut butter cups.
