Most Popular Candy by State

These aren’t your average Reese’s Cups, folks. Trader Joe’s bite-sized Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups use the perfect amount of real peanut butter kissed by quality dark chocolate.

Each one comes unwrapped with paper cups only, tossed in a big plastic bucket for easy snacking. The best part of all? They cost less than $5.

So, who were the runners-up, you ask?

Hold the Cone! mini ice cream cones, Danish Kringle, Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches and Gone Bananas! frozen banana slices covered in dark chocolate — all great options, but they don’t even scratch the surface of top-tier sweets you can get at this fan-favorite grocer. On your next grocery run, keep an eye out for the best Trader Joe’s desserts of all time.
