I purchased a container of Dilettante Bing Cherries in Premium Chocolate from Trader Joe’s.I purchased them initially not knowing how they were going to taste but I figured you can’t possibly go wrong with chocolate covered cherries.I knew that I liked the Queen Anne’s Chocolate Covered Cherries so I figured these had to be “healthier” and undoubtedly yummier.
I have to say I was right.These bing cherries are straight up delicious!It’s a bing cherry (think the fresh cherries that are sold in the grocery store) that are dried a bit and then encased in chocolate with a coating on the outside so it doesn’t make your fingers chocolatey from the get-go.Delicious!
I do want to point out I have spotted bagged versions of these cherries are Walmart.I have purchased them but I find that the cherries sold within Trader Joe’s market are actually fresher in comparison.The cherries (even though they are sold by the same company) are chewier from Walmart.I just wanted to point that out incase anyone was interested in purchasing.
The greatest part is a serving size is 7 pieces and it will only cost you 5 points plus values!
While at Trader Joe’s I spotted these Dilettante Fruit Medley chocolate covered fruits.The container contained cherries, strawberries, apricots and blueberries covered in chocolate with a mild coating on the outside to keep the chocolate from melting.Chocolate covered fruit?Hello, welcome to my shopping basket! Sure, it’s a bit expensive (I believe they’re $4.99/5.99) but they are SO delicious.I looked up the brand online and found it’s sold online for a lot more than what Trader Joe’s was selling it for, so no complaining from me!
One of the greatest part is the serving size – you get 7 pieces and it translates to being only 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus.Not bad at all because you get a fabulous tasting snack.The cherries and apricots are probably my favorite flavor. I will say the blueberries were rather lacking in the container.
The candies within the chocolate are almost a version of a dried fruit, but not dry and hard – kind of in between. The chocolate is nice and mild.The only downside is they can be completely addicting.
Have you ever tried the Dilettante Fruit Medley from Trader Joe’s?
