Say it ain’t so, Joe! 😭
Word on the street is that Trader Joe’s will no longer sell its popular Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks, and we’re having some strong feelings about this news! We were hoping that this was just a rumor, but at least one Tj’s associate has confirmed that the Chunks will soon be disappearing from the store’s shelves.
For years, Trader Joe’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks have been loved for their rich, chocolate flavor, their chunky texture, and their unique shapes and sizes. We loved them for mixing into cookie dough, making chunky brownies, and eating by the handful when no one’s looking.
Hopefully, they’ll be replaced with something equally awesome, but for many serious bakers, there can be no substitute. Hip recipe creator Ashley said,
When I first saw that these were going to be discontinued I jumped in my car and drove straight to the store. I have been making all my famous cookies with these Chocolate Chunks for over 3 years now. They literally are the best! They melt evenly and do not taste chalky as some chunks do. Seriously – when making cookies I use these instead of chips. They are literally the best chocolate I have found!
While there’s no convenient time to have one of your favorite grocery items disappear, the timing of this news seems especially bad with the holiday baking season right around the corner.
If you’re as bummed as we are about Trader Joe’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks disappearing, you can head on over here to let them know how you feel. Our TJ’s was still well-stocked when we checked, so you may be able to find them near you until they’re gone.
