“Like any good romance, Trader Joe’s Fireworks Chocolate bar is sweet and hot, with just enough explosive moments to keep things interesting. Share with your true love, or keep the Fireworks all to yourself!”
The packaging is cute and retro, with lovers on the front and the writing on the back pretty much states you should share these fireworks with your lover. Maybe. I’ll see how they taste first.
So how does the Trader Joe’s Fireworks Chocolate bar taste? Rich, dark, and smoky, with just the right amount of spice. Upon reading the ingredients list I learnt that the smokiness is actually chipotle chili spice. The pop rocks really did rock. The retained their poppiness very well. I remember from watching an episode of Donut Showdown, that to retain the pop, you have to coat the candy with some sort of fat because once they come in contact with air or moisture, they’ll fizz right away. I hope the only other added fat is the chocolate itself. But who cares really eh? It’s chocolate.
At $1.99 I thought the quality of dark chocolate was pretty amazing. And again, at $1.99, what’s there to complain about?
I hope this chocolate bar is here to stay as I really enjoyed it. Now I need to ask Aunt Aggy to stock up for me!
