Dark Chocolate Salted Edamame

I’m having a Trader Joe’s inspired week.

First, it was Tofu Edamame Nuggets.  And now this.

I’ve been coveting Baron’s dark chocolate edamame ever since he scored some as a gift at the holidays.

These guys have a great crunch.  The salt enhances the subtle sweetness of the chocolate and reminds me of chocolate covered pretzels.

Now that I’ve subtracted so much sugar from my food, I get equal satisfaction from a good crunch.

Who knew?  Sweet is out and crunchy is in.

If you told me that 9 months ago, I would never, ever, ever have believed it was possible.

Even now, I hardly believe it.
