Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate filled with Speculoos Cookie Spread

May 25th, 2012 by Rosa

It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here! After year (okay, really just months) of searching and asking every time I went into my local Trader Joe’s, after I completely gave up on ever finding one because a Trader Joe’s cashier told me that they were no longer orderable, I GOT TO EAT A SPECULOOS CHOCOLATE […]

Another Dominique Ansel confection

October 24th, 2013 by Rosa

Via Serious Eats, Domonique Ansel’s latest confection creation is a Gingerbread Pinecone filled with speculoos mousse and covered in chocolate. There are few things more delicious than speculoos and chocolate, as Trader Joe’s has taught me. Photo from Dominique Ansel’s website because I live too dang far away to get my paws on one for myself. […]

Up until I read about them on Serious Eats, I’d never before heard of grilled banana boats. Apparently all that you have to do is slit a banana, shove it full of sweets and goodies, and stick it on the grill. I would like one with chocolate and speculoos spread, please!

Belgian Sweet Treats

March 29th, 2012 by Rosa

Serious Eats has a nice round-up of chocolate and nut treats that can be found in Brussels. I want speculoos almonds! I know that Neuhaus has US outposts in NYC, so not all of those sweets are out of reach if you can’t get all the way to Belgium.

Trader Joe’s Milk Chocolate filled with Caramel

March 5th, 2012 by Rosa

Trader Joe’s recently introduced a new line of Belgian chocolate bars {filled with} stuff. They made a big splash on my radar because one of them was {filled with} speculoos cookie spread, which is SO MUCH NOMS!, and my Trader Joe’s didn’t carry them and probably never will. Instead, it carried the other two, caramel […]

Leonides Les Truffes

June 1st, 2011 by Rosa

Today I’m reviewing more European treats that were gifts from my friend Neil, this 9-piece box of Leonides Les Truffes. There were 6 kinds of truffle in the box: Classique, Noire, Cafe-Caramel, Champagne, Noisette Croquante, and Speculoos. They got a little smooshed in transit, so a few had cracked shells, but they all tasted fine! All of the […]

Nestle Galak Pop Ri

March 11th, 2011 by Rosa

I thought it would be nice to close off nearly two weeks’ worth of Neil’s guest reviews with a review of some Dutch candy that he gave me. Presenting Nestle’s Galak Pop Ri. As best as I can tell, Nestle Galak is the white chocolate umbrella brand, while Pop Ri indicates the presence of puffed […]
