Trader Joe’s Candy Coated Chocolate Drops (aka Not M&M’s)

Trader Joe’s Candy Chocolate Chocolate Drops are finally the answer to cheap tasting M&M’s. You can taste the milk chocolate not just a milk chocolate flavor. These are a wonderful addition to TJ’s candy selection!

FullSizeRender 40These wonderful dime sized Chocolate Drops come in a rainbow of colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The TJ’s web page states none of these colors come from sources like Red 40, Blue 2, or Yellow 6. The manufacturers make the colors from vegetable and herb source like beets, red cabbage, red radishes, spirulina (algae), and turmeric. The colors are truly beautiful.

I hope one day they will make these with peanuts and I will never have the need to buy M&M’s again. Not that I bought them that often anyways, but always a treat during long road trips.

And in case you are wondering they don’t melt in your hand……
