Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds at Costco (1 of 2)

My grandmother always told me if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Which is not helpful advice if you do a shopping blog.

Nevertheless, it's hard for me to be overtly critical, even though sometimes products deserve it. Or at least, I think they do.

So, I'll admit my new least favorite product: the salted chocolate covered almonds. I really, really wanted to like these.  The Kirkland dark chocolate almond cherry clusters disappeared from my Costco's shelves, the dark chocolate covered mangos disappeared, I needed a new dark chocolate replacement. This isn't it.

The foretaste is pretty good, like the Kirkland dark chocolate covered almonds and cherries , but the aftertaste is too salty - much saltier than the Kirkland chocolate covered caramels.  I'm going to try to develop a cookie recipe to use them up.
