Coffee and Cocoa Fix

Posted on Updated on


Trader Joe's Coffee and CocoaAs I’ve written about before, to keep my grocery spending in check without feeling deprived, I allow myself one impulse buy when I go to the store, if I want it. The other day while grabbing some things for the week at Trader Joe’s, I picked up this Coffee & Cocoa blend.

I think I made it about twenty minutes before brewing a pot. I have one of those little 4-cup coffee makers, so a pot is really not that much compared to what most people think of as a pot of coffee, but I digress.

Anyway, it was really good! The cocoa flavor is subtle but distinct. There is definitely no mistaking this stuff for hot chocolate, though—it’s more like a rich, smooth coffee with a little hit of je ne sai quois (I guess I do remember some of my high school French after all). Not bad for a $6.99 pick-me-up.

Any favorite impulse buys lately?

    The Spinach, Kale and Greek Yogurt Dip from Trader Joe’s is great to satisfy your creamy spinach dip craving 🙂 I almost feel like I am cheating! You should definitely try it out!

      Haha I can’t tell you how many times I’ve picked that up, turned it over, and talked myself out of buying it. Maybe next time…
