The pros: Trader Joe’s Brandy Beans have a strong alcoholic center, good quality chocolate, best beans I’ve ever had that weren’t actually beans.
The cons: Strong alcoholic center (which is also a pro)
The verdict: For $2.99 these pack a punch. There are some items that have alcohol listed and you can’t taste it. These on the other hand will knock you off your ass if you aren’t careful. If you know that you are going to be home then enjoy these. They would also make a great hostess gift if the person is like Julia Child. My only regret here is only buying one box of these. They make their appearance around the holiday season, so if you enjoy these, do yourself a favor and pick up a few as they won’t be around very long. Before you get these, please make sure you have ID with you.

Cut open this it oozes boozy goodness:
These beans are strong, boozy and chocolate. Trader Joe’s Brandy Beansy have a good brandy kick. Totally worth the $2.99 if you enjoy the mixing of alcohol and chocolate. They are seasonal, so if you enjoy them, you’ll want to stock up.
