Goodness gracious, Trader Joe. Talk about self-promotion. There's so much advertising for your own stuff on this advent calendar, you should pay us to take one!
But, alas, I did pay the whopping 99¢ for 24 pieces of chocolate. Let's see if they're as bad as Trader Joe's Old Advent Calendar.
Actually, nope. These are fresher somehow. Maybe it's because this one is wrapped in cellophane. I feel like the ones many years ago were just cardboard. I could be wrong, though. It's been 11 years.
Nevertheless, these chocolates are nothing to write home about. They're just plain sweet milk chocolate with no gimmicks, no surprises. I'd never buy them if not for the 24 interactive countdown windows. Advent calendars are fun even if the chocolate is yucky. Also, this one has a handy dandy checklist on the back with all your favorite Christmas items. They're the same ones featured on the artwork on the front.
Coincidentally, we've reviewed just about all those products on the advent calendar. Two can play at that shameless self-promotion game, Trader Joe's.
In the top left, we've got a big tin of Trader Joe's Jingle Jangle.
In the bottom left, I see a bag of Trader Joe's Scandinavian Tidings.
On the top right, there's a bottle of Trader Joe's Winter Wassail.
Also, on the right, I spy with my little eye: a carton of Trader Joe's Almond Nog.
And there's some Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's down there, too.
Last but certainly not least, there's a jar of Trader Joe's Cookie Butter.
