Favorite Day Spring Shimmer Almonds

Well this looks like Easter candy to me. I mean, it does have "spring" in the title, I suppose, to keep it non-denominational like that. I mean, everybody celebrates spring, right? How inclusive of Target.

Interestingly enough, we saw a very similar candy from Trader Joe's released just recently, too. Theirs looks very much like bird's eggs, while these are just shiny pastel colors. TJ's version was coated in dark chocolate, while these are coated in white chocolate. If you've been reading my posts for a while, you might remember that I generally prefer white or milk chocolate, although dark chocolate definitely has its moments.

And I'm glad Target went with white chocolate here. The nuttiness of the almonds goes well with the sugary sweetness of white chocolate. There's actually more white chocolate content in the product than actual almonds, according to the ingredients list. Not even sure how that's possible. The candy shells don't really add much other than color, and that's fine with me.

In summary, these candied almonds are snackable enough, and I always appreciate the resealable bag to keep them fresher longer. $6.49 for 12 oz. I mean I know there's inflation and all, but six and a half bucks for a bag of almonds is getting a little steep. The Trader Joe's product was only about four bucks, but I think their bag was a little smaller, too.

It's a limited time offering. Says so right on the bag. In the words of Fuel:

All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade

I give these festive almonds 7 out of 10 stars.
