Jumping on the better-for-you candy bandwagon, Trader Joe's has just debuted Candy Coated Chocolate Peanuts. While the chocolate peanuts are, or course, still candy, they are made without the use of artificial colors.
Trader Joe's new Candy Coated Chocolate Peanuts are a rainbow-hued new treat for kids and adults alike. The candies consist of roasted, salted peanuts, which are then covered in a silky milk chocolate. Each piece is then wrapped in a "vibrantly-colored candy shell that adds just the right amount of sweetness and snap to every crunchy bite." However, this isn't your average candy shell. Like the brand's Candy Covered Chocolate Drops, the new Candy Coated Chocolate Peanuts are colored with dyes sourced from vegetables and herbs, rather than artificial dyes such as Yellow 5 and Red 3.
Like many other confectionary brand, Trader Joe's new candies demonstrate the consumer demand for snacks and treats made with more natural ingredients.
