March 17th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Despite what you may have gleaned from the majority of this Fearless Flyer, we sell things other than pizza at Trader Joe's. Like chocolate. And snacks. And sometimes, if you look closely, you'll discover treats that are chocolate and snacks. Like Trader Joe's Ruggedly Adventuresome Cowboy Bark.
Inspired by crafty confections we found in and around New Orleans, our Cowboy Bark presents a veritable roundup of sweet & salty, with textures ranging from creamy to crunchy. We start with a base of smooth dark chocolate - a very good place to start. Within the chocolate base, we thought a little texture would make things interesting, so we added bits of toffee. That'd be a pretty good candy experience right there, but we weren't content with "pretty good". We were going for great, and great required topping the chocolate slabs with broken pieces of Joe Joe's cookies, coarsely chopped peanuts and almonds, and salted pretzel pieces. Sweet, salty, crunchy, creamy, goodness - sounds like the ideal treat to eat post-pizza!
Ruggedly Adventuresome Cowboy Bark comes in a nine ounce package for $3.69. You'll find it only at your neighborhood Trader Joe's.
