Am I in the minority here?
I have been receiving tips to try various Trader Joe's snackfoods, including their chocolate-covered, peanut-butter-filled pretzels. They've received some rave reviews and I expected to fall in love with chocolate and peanut butter all over again (not that I could care for the combo much more than I already do).
Then, a few weeks ago, I braved a horrendous line at the one NYC Trader Joe's store and, while there, spotted and picked up a bag of this notorious snack for myself. Though they seemed expensive, I was sure they'd be worth it.
Well, maybe. I still say they're overpriced, the bag felt underfilled, and the flavor was less exciting than peanut butter+chocolate+pretzel should be. I tried dipping them into even more peanut butter and ate them while drinking a big cup of milk, which helped a bit, but they remained kind of blah.
Someone want to convince me to try these again? Is it possible I got a bum bag? The one I bought was supposed to expire in July of this year. I wanted so much for these to be worth the $4 or $5 they cost.
