Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Rondos Review

Milk Chocolate Rondos with Caramelized Pecan Crunch in package

It's the day after Christmas - prime time to get out of the house and make a Trader Joe's run! 


Milk Chocolate Rondos with Caramelized Pecan Crunch, one piece, detail

Today, we're reviewing Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Rondos with Caramelized Pecan Crunch. (Yay for Trader Joe's chocolate reviews!) There are two varieties of Rondos. The other is a dark chocolate version with raspberry, strawberry, and cherry.

According to the Trader Joe's website, these Slovakian chocolates got the name Rondos from the word Rondo, which is "....a form of song featuring a refrain that alternates in and out with at least one contrasting melodic theme—almost like a song in conversation with itself." Rondos are chocolates "...featuring complementary elements such as dried fruit or candied nuts..."

You'll find 10 chocolate discs in each in each cylindrical box, separated by thin paper cushions. The suggested serving size is 2 per serving. One container costs $4.99.

Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Rondos Review


He says (Mark): Love the packaging! A sturdy container with a lid vs. a crinkly plastic bag. Each disc was a nice thickness and didn't break into loads of crumbs. I was able to break it into smaller bites without issue. This new chocolate delight is so smooth and tasty. The caramelized pecan crunch was excellent. Just enough to notice the taste and texture, although I wouldn't have minded a tad more. Grab one and see how long it will last in your kitchen…I bet not long.
Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars


She says (Bridget): These chocolates feel very upscale - from the pretty pattern on the faces to the snap of the chocolate. The amount of caramelized pecan crunch is in perfect proportion and brings a crunchy and chewy element to the smooth milk chocolate. We polished off an entire container before we got to the review and had to return to TJ's for more. 
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

 
Will we buy them again? We already have!
