Amped Up Almonds: 5.5/10
🚨NEW ITEM🚨 Trader Joe’s has to have the most diverse selection of sweetly coated nuts. From the almond butter coated, to the peppermint white chocolate coated almonds, I’ve tried them all. Today I’m reviewing the new Amped Up Almonds, and honestly, I wasn’t a huge fan of these. My first thought was how are these different than the regular chocolate covered almonds? The main difference is the pea protein in the chocolate coating that makes them “amped up”. It has that typical protein texture that’s slightly chalky which is the main reason for the score drop. After each bite I was wishing that it was just the delicious smooth chocolate coating the almond without the chalkiness. I personally didn’t find these worth it to eat just for the high protein. If I’m looking for a higher protein snack, I would reach for other options. After having a few of these to try, I forgot about them in my candy drawer and ended up throwing them away. It’s $1.29 for the bag.
Have you tried these yet? What’s your favorite treat from Trader Joe’s?
