Although health-focused dark chocolates have been in the spotlight for quite some time now, this Trader Joe's chocolate bar gives milk chocolate the chance to shine.
The rise of functional Ayurvedic food and beverages and unique lattes has popularized the "golden milk" latte made with turmeric, which was also the inspiration for this unique chocolate bar flavor. True to its name, the Golden Spiced Milk Chocolate Bar shares many of the same ingredients that go into a traditional turmeric latte, including ginger, cardamom, nutmeg and black pepper. Other additions include crisped quinoa, dried coconut and curry powder for added spice.
Although the creamy, crunchy milk chocolate bar takes inspiration from the holistic healing Ayurveda system from ancient India, the bar itself is a celebration of cultures around the world; the Golden Spiced Milk Chocolate Bar is made with Belgian-style chocolate made in Canada, quinoa from Bolivia, coconut from Sri Lanka and spices from the United States.
