Trader Joe's Chocolate Sunflower Seed Drops

"Better than peanut M&M's," says Sonia.

I won't argue with that assessment.

The sunflower seeds provide a decidedly nutty flavor, and there's just the right amount of, of course, a colorful candy shell on each drop. They're crunchy, addictive, and fun to play with. Makes you wonder why none of the big mainstream candy companies have offered chocolate-covered sunflower seeds yet...

We were inspired to make another short video. Please enjoy our crude attempt at stop motion animation.

Bottom line: 8 out of 10.


  1. Another great thing about these is that they don't melt! A friend of mine brought them camping last summer and they didn't melt in the 107-degree heat!

    1. 107 degrees!? Were you camping inside an active volcano??

  2. these would be great in cookies! Instead of chocolate chips. Call it sun chip cookies.

  3. I LOVE these!! Totally perfect to have a pinch or two as a mini dessert that doesn't require a real commitment. The candy shell is seriously crunchy which is really satisfying. But be careful getting the lid off! I'm not especially coordinated and managed to send them flying across my apartment trying to get the lid off...

  4. They are pretty. We love sunflowers.
