September 30th, 2014 by Rosa

Shangri La is a tea company that’s now making inroads into tea-flavored chocolate. They sent me free samples of their line-up to review. I’ll cover the Earl Grey and Masala Chai today, and the Black Currant and Chamomile Mint on Thursday. Both the Early Grey and Masala Chai were made with a 38% cacao milk chocolate base. […]

Off to Shanghai + Fruit Vines Teaser

March 6th, 2014 by Rosa

By the time this post has published, I’ll be well on my way to Shanghai, China for a neuroeconomics conference. I’ll keep an eye out for any new candies, though embarrassingly (but not surprisingly) enough, I still have candies from my trip to Shanghai last summer that I never reviewed. Like these FruTips. They’ve been […]

M&Ms Superbowl Ad Teaser

January 30th, 2014 by Rosa

Via AdFreak, looks like Yellow is going to get a starring role in a Super Bowl commercial this Sunday. I believe he is trying to twerk, though it is hard to tell as he does not actually have a butt. The voice seems off to me. Compare to the classic M&Ms Santa commercial below:

The Tea Room – Honeybush Caramel

September 21st, 2011 by Rosa

I’d never heard of The Tea Room brand of chocolate bars until I saw a bunch of them at Cost Plus World Market. Having already filled my basket with candies, I restricted myself to the one bar that sounded most appealing to me: Honeybush Caramel. The bar is described on the box as, “exquisite milk […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Hedonist Spring Teas Collection

March 19th, 2010 by Rosa

Having fairly recently reviewed and enjoyed Charles Chocolates’s tea truffles, I was excited when I got the chance to try Hedonists’s take on the genre when they gave me a free box of their Spring Teas Truffle Collection. Jasmine was beautifully painted with green swirls and green speckles. It tasted mostly of deep, dark chocolate […]

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 […]

Master’s Tea with Judy Logback

March 16th, 2009 by Rosa

A couple of weeks ago, on February 25th, I skipped my bootcamp class at the gym and went to a Master’s Tea with Judy Logback, the founder of Kallari chocolates, instead. After complaining about the Times Styles’ snarky chocolate review that fawned over Kallari a bit too much, how could I pass up the opportunity […]
