Eat with your Eyes: Merry Mingle

Trader Joe's Merry Mingle

Just a little preview of a new Trader Joe’s holiday candy. I picked up a few of their new item last week and will do a review of all the returning items as well before Thanksgiving.

Merry Mingle is like a dark chocolate pecan turtle with a few dried cranberries thrown in.

    Tyler - that will be covered in the review. I’ll be sure to make note of it.

  4. It looks like you started eating it, then spit it back out because it tasted bad.
