Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Chocolate Finds

The Sampler at 5 Minutes for Mom

Before we get to the chocolate, I wanted to tell you that I am excited and honored to be featured in The Sampler at 5 Minutes For Mom today! Will you please click over there and leave a comment on my article, even if it's just "hi"? That way I won't feel too lonely there. Many thanks to my supportive bloggy friends!

Back to chocolate...

Instead of a yummy chocolate recipe today, I wanted to share a couple of chocolate finds with you. 'Cause sometimes you just want to buy the chocolate and eat it right now instead of having to make something from a recipe - right?!

Both of these items are unusual, but tasty. The first item I found at Trader Joe's. (I did try to take pictures of these, but all turned out blurry and I haven't the extra time to do it right!) It is a box of Trader Joe's Whole Grain Chocolatey-Filled Cereal Bites. I don't know how long they have had them or how long they will stay, so you better run and get some. These bites are Y-U-M-M-Y! They make such a good snack. Betcha can't eat just one! The filling has a cocoa-hazelnut flavor - very similar to Nutella. By the way, if you haven't had Nutella - you are missing out and may want to go get some (at your grocery store; near the peanut butter) while you are on your way to purchase these other fine chocolate finds. :)

The second item is from World Market. It is a candy bar: World Market All Natural Sea Salt Dark Chocolate. Different, but I like it! The sea salt is mixed in with the dark chocolate. You can definitely taste it in there, but the salty and sweet do work together. Try it and see what you think. At less than $2 a bar, I think it's worth trying out.

Now I've given you something to go get and make your Friday so much more exciting! But before you head to the store, don't forget to link up your chocolate-themed post to Mr. Linky below. Check out yesterday's post for more information. And take a look back at last Friday. Please share the chocolate!


  1. Congratulations on your 5 Minutes for Mom feature! I am glad they did because I love your blog!! I am adding it to my reader right now. And...check out the chocolate that I sell:-)

  2. I tried the Sea Salt chocolate, too. I liked the first bite, but the ones that had the most salt bits in them were a bit much! Off to 5 minutes now...

  3. Oh boy, this is my first time stopping by your site, Lisa, and I can tell already I'm going to love it! Now it's off to explore all those chocolate links.

    Your Trader Joe's cereal bits tip, by the way, reminded me of their chocolate truffles. Have you ever tried them? Mmmmmm, Mmmmmm good! Must . . . have . . . chocolate :)
