trader joes firescracker chocolate

I was in Trader Joe’s the other day and at the register were baskets of their Fireworks Chocolate Bars.  I had heard about these from their radio commercial and picked one up to have as our sweet with our Ploughman’s Lunch (check back tomorrow).  A dark chocolate bar with chipotle spice, it’s a modern spin on the 80’s pop-rocks.  After the chocolate has nestled nicely on your palate, the subtle popping ensues.  These would be kind of fun on a s’more or as party favors for a July 4th party.  And, it was perfect with a glass of red.
