Since today is Valentine’s Day, I felt the need to stock up on all things chocolate when I was shopping earlier this week at Trader Joe’s. To be completely honest, I was in the check out line waiting to pay when I spotted this:
Chocolate Chip Brownies? Yes, please! These brownies are huge and only $2.49 for a package of 2. I knew that these would brighten Jon’s day.
The brownies are made in a facility where products containing wheat, peanut and tree nuts are made, but knowing Trader Joe’s and their practices regarding gluten-free foods, I felt safe purchasing and consuming these.
When Jon came home from school he noticed the package of brownies sitting on the island in the kitchen. He asked if the brownies were for him, and I told him they were as long as I could have a bite. I opened the package and cut off my bite right after I took these photos because I knew once Jon began to eat the brownies I wouldn’t have much time to get my taste. I love that the brownies are packaged individually to help keep them fresh. These brownies were every bit as good as I imagined they would be! They were on the dense, fudgy side with bits of chocolate chip scattered throughout. Jon agreed that they were awesome and he now wants me to purchase them every time I am near Trader Joe’s.
I am pleased to see that while Trader Joe’s has discontinued one of my favorite gluten-free products, they are continuing to expand their gluten-free product line. The philosophy of the company is to provide food and products by purchasing in volume directly from suppliers and only keeping those products that do well on their shelves.
