Trader Joe's Espresso Pillows
Did anyone pick up a tin of these this holiday season? I did, and I had to go back for more. Trader Joe's has a great little pick-me-up available in a stylish tin that will fit in a small pocket, briefcase, kitchen drawer, or anywhere you'll need a little sweetness and a shot of caffeine.
The tin is classic, and has a satisfying snap to it when it closes. The see-thru window gives you a quick chance of the beautiful treats inside; it also gives you a reason how much is left, with a clue to see if anyone has been downing your Espresso Pillows without your knowledge.
The Espresso Pillows are not just chocolate covered espresso beans, but instead have a sweeter layer of toffee coating the bean, then with a layer of dark chocolate on top to finish it off. These really aren't pillows, and are not fluffy, but instead are strong flavored and a bit crunchy - not sure who named it, but I don't really care. They are pretty good.
These are better than your average chocolate covered bean; the light sweetness of the toffee with its buttery notes, make this a better, tasty treat, and because it comes in a closable tin, a far better option than the usual cellophane bag for run of the mill beans.
