Baci Perugina

June 23rd, 2008 by Rosa

Remember Sixpence None the Richer? No? Remember “Kiss me beneath the milky twilight/lead me out on the moonlit floor/lift your open hand/strike up the band and make the fireflies dance/silver moon sparkling” (weird grammar there)? Still no? Maybe this will jog your memory. It’s frightening how quickly those useless lyrics come back instantly, yet I […]

Taste of London and other food festivals

June 19th, 2008 by Rosa

Today marks the start of the Taste of London festival in Regent Park, and I just happen to be hopping a train to London tomorrow. Of course, once I get there, I’m hopping a bus to Stonehenge for overnight early Summer Solstice celebrating. BUT I’ll be back in London for Saturday (though verrrry tired from […]

Cadbury Crunchie

January 28th, 2008 by Rosa

I found the British Cadbury Crunchie (BUY!) at Coco Moka in Houston’s airport. The wrapper promised “milk chocolate with a golden honeycomb centre,” so I expected that it would be something similar to the Violet Crumble, and I was right. However, I liked the Cadbury Crunchie more. The honeycomb center (or centre) of the Cadbury […]

Winter Break Trip Roundup

December 31st, 2007 by Rosa

Happy New Year’s Eve! I get to fly home to Austin today. Hooray! I shall be traveling with a wheeled carry-on suitcase literally half-full of candy. Hooray! And that’s not even counting my bag of Jelly Belly Flops. Hooray! Many thanks go out to my parents, who decided we were past due for a family […]

Clark Bar

November 20th, 2007 by Rosa

Clark bar (BUY!), where have you been all my life? I’d read about them but had never seen one until Economy Candy. I thought they were no longer being made, but fortunately, they’re still in existence. Nostalgia candy usually disappoints, but the Clark is surprisingly tasty. As the wrapper says, a Clark bar is chocolatey […]

Houston International Airport, Terminal E

November 19th, 2007 by Rosa

I’ve made it safely back to Austin from New Haven. The Game on Saturday was supposed to be incredible (both Harvard and Yale going into it undefeated in the League, but only Yale going into it undefeated, period), and we were supposed to win! Instead, it was an atrocious blowout that was painful to watch. […]

French Chew Taffy – chocolate flavored

November 12th, 2007 by Rosa

I’m going to preface this review by letting y’all know I’m not a fan of taffy (BUY!). Laffy Taffy I can take in mini-sized increments, but even that I only eat when it’s all that’s left in the Kiddie Mix assortment. I don’t like how mild the flavor is. To me, eating taffy is kind […]

Nestle Aero Bubbles Mint

November 2nd, 2007 by Rosa

Why is aerated chocolate so popular in Europe but nearly unheard of in the U.S.? Before trying these Nestle Aero Bubbles (BUY!), I didn’t really understand what all the fuss was about. Big deal; bubbles in chocolate. How exciting could that be? Honestly, not that exciting. I could feel the bubbles with my tongue, but […]

Ferrera Nougat

October 29th, 2007 by Rosa

I haven’t had much nougat experience in my life. It’s not a candy you usually come across as a kid, and neither my parents nor my friends are nougat eaters, so no one introduced me to it later in life. I bought a couple of pieces at Economy Candy and found them to be quite […]

Mars Delight

October 10th, 2007 by Rosa

My Mars Delight came from Economy Candy, I think by way of Germany or France? The wrapper read, “Überraschend knusprig, lecker cremig. Étonnamment croustillant, délicieusement fondant.” I haven’t taken French since first semester freshman year, but I believe that the French sentence roughly translates into “Surprisingly crunchy, deliciously made.” And the Mars Delight is indeed […]
