With Thanksgiving now just a memory, our holiday attention turns to the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas! And with that comes the joyous — but daunting — task of bringing the festive spirit of the holiday season into your home: decorating your house, buying (or unpacking) the tree, untangling that giant ball of scrambled Christmas lights, and perfecting that holiday playlist on Spotify. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
So it comes as no surprise that the grocery equivalent to Santa's workshop, Trader Joe's, is here to help us out with at least one of those tasks: the decorating of your tree.
At only $6.99, Trader Joe's is offering a delicious-looking package of edible chocolate ornaments. The ornaments come in a package of 26 and consist of "hollow milk-chocolate balls, ovals, and bells — each wrapped in festive foil with a sparkly hanging string," according to the Trader Joe's website.
If you're wondering how that works out money-wise, it's only a little over a quarter per ornament, which seems like a holiday miracle.

How do you like your holiday #chocolates? If you’re feeling nostalgic, try #traderjoes Chocolate #Ornaments: 26 hollow milk-chocolate balls, ovals, and bells—each wrapped in festive foil with a sparkly hanging string. — For something a little more refined, try our elegantly wrapped, traditional French Ballotin Box: a curated collection of eight, uniquely-shaped Belgian #truffles made of dark, milk, or white #chocolate, with a variety of rich, creamy fillings.
If you want even more chocolate for the holiday season (and who doesn't), there are plenty of other chocolate-y offerings available at Trader Joe's right now. I have my eye on the French Ballotin Box, which Trader Joe's describes as a "curated collection of eight, uniquely-shaped Belgian truffles made of dark, milk, or white chocolate." It costs $3.49 for six chocolates, which honestly is a total steal.
So, while you can't hang these particular chocolates on the tree, you can still eat them, and if we're being honest that's the most important part.
