Trader Joe's Chili Chocolate Collection Review...

Yes folks this is a new item from the company:

Article | Trader Joe's

First off I did love packaging as it showed off some very nice almost 2" round pieces of chocolate.

The box was 4.99 for 16 pieces of chocolate in four different flavors:

Milk Chocolate Guajillo
This was supposed to the weakest of the bunch. The Guajillo pepper has at best 5,000 SHU. I tried one and yes I did did get a punch of spice at the end.

Jalapeño Ganache
The next level up was this one. A dark chocolate flavored one. I tried one and this was certainly spicier. I got the smallest of watery eyes, but I got it.

Chili Lime
The third level was this one. For my taste buds this had solid lime flavor, but the heat was 100% lacking.

Habanero Milk Chocolate
Well this was supposed to the hottest one of the bunch and I wonder if I lucked out on the heat level. This one for my taste buds had almost no heat at all.

The chocolate flavor was amazing as usual from Trader Joe's.

I have to give this item a medium sized thumbs up as the heat just did not exist for the Habanero Milk Chocolate for my taste buds.

Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!
