Quick Recipe – Dutch Chocolate Pudding
There are days where I just don’t have time to make something good. But not all good things require a lot of time like this Chocolate Pudding from Trader Joes. Since we don’t have a TJ in Vancouver, it’s not like you can skip out of the house and pick this up. It’s something that you may want to get while you head south for some shopping. The closest TJ to Vancouver is in Bellingham (check website for address and directions).
This chocolate pudding has no artificial flavours or colours and preservatives. On the ingredient list of 6 things, I actually know 5 ingredients – cane sugar, corn starch, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt. The only ingredient that sounds chemical-y was the ingredient used for thickening (how I know if that they actually wrote that next to it). Try reading the ingredient list for other bigger brand puddings. More unknown stuff on the ingredient list.
It tastes really chocolate-y and not grainy, overly sweet or fake tasting (the fakest tasting pudding I’ve had was Jello’s Pistaschio pudding… gross). It’s air-y even after a day and a half in the fridge. It’s Dutch chocolate and we all know that Europeans don’t mess around with chocolate. For $2, this is indeed a good buy to stock up on.
