Candy Ramadan: Day 28

What has cocoa mass, wheat syrup and 22 mg of caffeine per serving? Trader Joe's Espresso Chocolates! These little bad asses are a dark chocolate shell filled with espresso. The shell actually looks a lot like the Nestle Treasures do, like they're both little candy logs filled with gooey goodness. The box points out that "other coffee candies have a cream center or bits of coffee beans. Trader Joe's Espresso Chocolates have a real liquid espresso center." Because that's just how they roll, people. Recognize!

I liked these a lot, because if there's one thing I like as much as candy it's coffee. And coffee and chocolate are a killer combination. Also they're individually wrapped so they're tres classy even though they do squirt in your mouth when you bite on them.

I'm cutting this one a little short today because I'm about to see 'The Dark Knight'. HELLS YEAH! However, I am embarking on an illicit candy-smuggling operation at the theater, so I'll post later on how that goes. If I don't return, eat a Cow Tale in remembrance of me.

Thanks. I'm heading to Trader Joe's in a few hours and will pick some of these up. they sound fabulous. And do I incorrectly sense you might be a fan of The Big Bang Theory?

I have never seen it, is it any good? Do they talk about candy a lot?

Nah, it was the whole "that's how they roll" and "Recognize" part. They were quotes that stood out to me. I didn't like the show at first, but it grew on me. If you're a nerd, you'll appreciate it :-)

Oh I'm a total and complete nerd! I'm going to have to check out that show.
