Lotte Sasha Chocolate – Matcha

February 1st, 2013 by Rosa

This box of Lotte Sasha Chocolate is the last of my Asian goodies from Emma and Jason. No worries if you want to read more Asian candy reviews here – I’ve still got a few more Japanese treats from Nana and Justin to write up. A quick googling shows that Sasha Chocolate refers to the […]

Kit Kat Uji Matcha

April 25th, 2011 by Rosa

I got this Uji Matcha Kit Kat as a free sample from Tsunami.hk. Uji Matcha is a specific blend of green tea, and it’s one of the many flavors of Japanese Kit Kats. The Kit Kat fingers were pea green colored. Even though I’ve reviewed quite a few matcha chocolates on this blog, I still […]

Fearless Chocolate – Dark as Midnight and Matcha Green Tea Peppermynt

December 13th, 2010 by Rosa

I got an assortment of free sample bars from Fearless Chocolate Co., a bean-to-bar chocolate maker. They’re about as health food faddy as it gets. Their chocolate is raw, organic, kosher, gluten/soy/dairy-free, and stocked with superfoods. These Fearless bars are my first foray into raw chocolate. Should be interesting! I love the rustic cardboard look […]

Guest Post: Japanese Tiramisu Chocolates

October 15th, 2012 by CamNMere

I’m currently at the Society for Neuroscience conference in New Orleans, so I’m turning things over to some globe-trotting friends this week. Cameron and Meredith are former roommates of mine (we did lots of chocolate truffle tastings together), and they’re writing about some treats they bought on a recent trip through Japan. ~Rosa Hello folks!

Fearless Chocolate – Super Seeds and Sweet & Hot

December 15th, 2010 by Rosa

On Monday, I reviewed two of my four free sample bars of Fearless Chocolate. Today, I’ll wrap things up with my review of their Super Seeds Hemp Chia Flax and their Sweet & Hot Hibiscus Ginger. It really doesn’t sound any health fad crunchier than “Hemp Chia Flax.” This 70% raw organic bar was studded […]

Japanese Kit Kat – Royal Milk Tea

June 25th, 2010 by Rosa

I got a bunch of Japanese Kit Kats in my free sample box from Tsunami.hk. For some reason, Kit Kats in Japan have taken on a life on their own, with dozens of always available and seasonal/limited edition flavors, some of which are quite weird. Today’s review is of the first of the lot: Royal […]

Charles Chocolates Teance – The Tea Collection

February 26th, 2010 by Rosa

Charles Chocolates’s Teance Tea Collection, another free sample that I received, was absolutely gorgeous – little square tiles of slate grey adorned with traditional Chinese calligraphy. I have no idea how they did it, but I love the look. I also wish I knew more of the characters; second from the right is “cha” or […]

Essential Candies List – 1-55

January 22nd, 2010 by Rosa

To kick off 2010, Cybele from Candy Blog posted an exhausted list of the 110 Essential Candies for Candivores. She suggested that we repost it with what we’ve had checked off and add our thoughts. Great idea! But so much work… I’d been putting off doing so because Cybele’s list was so intimidatingly thorough, but […]

Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest

October 7th, 2008 by Rosa

From alert reader Lauren, a tip-0ff about a Scharffen Berger/TuttiFoodie.com Chocolate Adventure Recipe Contest. The twist? Recipes must feature an adventurous ingredient, such as basil, jicama, mango, matcha, etc. To give you an idea of what they’re looking for, last year’s winner was a recipe for “Scharffen Berger Wasabi Pom Poms,” a combination of chocolate, […]

Meiji Chocolate Tasting, part II

June 11th, 2008 by Rosa

Part II of II of the Meiji Chocolate tasting (courtesy of my worldly friend Michael) that started on Monday. Today, we shall begin with the somewhat incongruously named Black Chocolate. Why incongruous, you ask? Because for a bar that’s named BLACK in giant letters, this one isn’t very dark in taste or appearance, though it […]
