Snack Attack: 4 Super Delicious Candies You Should Have in Your Pantry for Fall

Dark chocolate peanut butter salted caramel truffles

I’m still on a sweets kick (shocker), so I put together something a little different for this week’s food post. Instead of a recipe, I rounded up my top 4 favorite candies from Trader Joe’s for fall. Because if you’re only going to try a few candy options this season (gasp!), they might as well be the best, right?

Side note… If somehow your favorite didn’t end up on the list, feel free to let me know in the comments below. There are some honorable mentions at the end too. So, let’s do this!

Dark chocolate peanut butter salted caramel truffles

1. Dark chocolate peanut butter salted caramel truffles. Not only do they come in that fun copper packaging (image at the top of this post), they are the most delicious truffles I’ve EVER had. For real! It’s the caramel and peanut butter combo, for sure.

Dark chocolate peanut butter cups

2. Dark chocolate peanut butter cupsThese were an office favorite, so they made the list. I’m more of a milk chocolate person to be honest (which they also make), but dark chocolate was the crowd favorite.

Fleur de sel caramels

3. Fleur de sel caramelsThese are SO good! Probably my absolute favorite from this whole list. So, if you like caramels, be sure to pick up a box of these!

P.S. I also really like the vanilla meringues (try this idea for DIY watercolor meringues if you want to take these into DIYland) and kettle cooked fruit jellies. Neither felt especially fall0sh though, so I didn’t include any photos for those guys.

Have you tried any of these sweet treats at TJs? Which snacks are your favorite? I’m so curious to know!
