This post is short and sweet. My favorite go-to sweet snack is a dark chocolate almond. It is the perfect balance of crunchy, sweet, and small. I stumbled upon the dark chocolate almonds at whole foods and it has been a favorite of mine ever since. I have tried many other dark chocolate almonds and nothing compares. I know so many people love Trader Joe’s dark chocolate almond but the chocolate to nut ratio is off. (in my opinion)
When lockdown happened last March, I made a beeline to the bulk section at my local Whole Foods to stock up. We really didn’t know how long we would be at home. I chose a large container and filled it to the top. As I stood in the LONG checkout line, I decided to go back for another container just in case. I am so glad I did because I ran out sometime in the Spring. When I first started going back into stores in the Summer, Whole Foods was sold out! It took a bit to find them again and once I did I stocked up. I now make sure this favorite of mine is always in the house. Sometimes it’s one and sometimes it’s two or three I grab from the container. It always satisfies my sweet tooth.
Do you have a favorite sweet treat?
*P.S. A big MERCI to reader Natalie who sent me the sweetest Whole Foods gift card for the new site launch/birthday. I used it on a restock of my favorite chocolate almonds. 💕
