Brandy Beans are the boozy snack we need in our lives.

Confession: Everything I know about brandy comes from TV and movies.

I imagine brandy drinkers like to spend their time in leather wingback chairs, smoking pipes, and mulling over the meaning of life.

I wish I was classy enough to sip fine cognac after a long day à la Frasier and Niles Crane, but I’m more of a boxed wine and The Bachelor kinda gal.

Lucky for me, Trader Joe’s has a product that will allow me to feel like Frasier on a Bachelor budget.

That’s right - Brandy Beans are the best of both worlds.

As always, @candyhunting on Instagram is bringing us the junk food news we need to know:

Basically, they’re like chocolate, alcohol-filled Gushers - which we are here for 100 percent.

Though not technically a new product, some devoted Trader Joe’s shoppers (including me) probably haven’t seen them on shelves. Turns out we have pesky alcohol laws to thank for that.

If your state doesn’t allow the sale of liquor in grocery stores, you’re outta luck.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a pro-Brandy Bean state, however, you can snag a box for only $2.99.

Have your I.D. ready, because these chocolates pack a punch.
