Food Pick of the Week [Jun. 2nd, 2008|08:21 am]
terribleturnip
Trader Joe's chocolate caramel tartlets. They're in the cookie section. I picked them up on a whim. With the exception of a few shared with the Captain for dessert over a few nights...I ate them all. In 3 days. While trying not to. They do go really well with rum and whiskey....

Chocolate and caramel and the pastry actually tastes buttery. My inner Dane perked right up -- butter? Which explains, of course, the immediate pillaging of the box. I checked out the ingredients and one of them is "condensed butter". Perhaps this means some nasty industrial process.....

But condensed butter...what a yummy concept. It's like butter, but...more.

Cocoa almonds. Almonds dusted with cocoa, not covered in chocolate.

dee-lish and very hard to put down. Console yourself that they're full of those good nut fats and not full of sugar.

The new snack crack, I'm telling you.

Someone should market them as "Cocoaine."

Or not. The FDA and the DEA have such puny senses of humor.

I cannot thank Meredith enough for pointing out a high-calorie snack that goes perfectly with whisky. My butt, my heart and my liver thank you. [/sarcasm]

"Cocoaine."
Probably better than Crack-crackers or the chocolate Metha-doughnuts
