Trader Joe's Pound Plus Bars provoke intense feelings of love and desire among their loyal devotees, feelings so intense that poetry has been written to convey these feelings -- some pretty good poetry, actually. We get inspired when our products strike this kind of chord, so we set out to create an extra-special Pound Plus Bar just for the extra-special holiday season. What we developed has us contemplating not only poetry, but excessive chocolate consumption, as well.
Trader Joe's Pound Plus Extravaganza is the result of both our desire to deliver a "dressed up" version of our much-loved bars and your passionate adoration and affection for these bars. Crafted by the same Belgian chocolatier who makes all of the Pound Plus Bars, Pound Plus Extravaganza begins with luscious, rich, and creamy dark chocolate (54% cacao). Liberally embedded within the chocolate are tart cranberries, crunchy almonds, and spicy-sweet candied ginger. All wrapped up in a golden package, Pound Plus Extravaganza is ideal for gift-giving -- it will look impressive as a stocking stuffer without any additional adornment. At $4.99 for each 17.6 ounce bar, it's also something you can justify buying for yourself, especially since it's only here for the holidays, and if you miss out, you'll soon be writing poetry about your broken heart.
