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 […]

3400 Phinney Chai Tea Milk Chocolate

January 25th, 2008 by Rosa

The last bar of 3400 Phinney (BUY!) Week is Chai Tea Milk Chocolate with a 40% cacao content. Theo’s website describes this one as “milk chocolate with a warming blend of chai spices and black tea.” I love, love, loved this bar. I don’t drink chai tea because I usually find it too sweet, but […]

Cry Baby Tears minis

September 25th, 2007 by Rosa

These days, candy that only costs 25 cents a box is definitely a rarity. I’m guessing that Cry Baby Tears (BUY!) are a retro/nostalgia candy that have been around for a while. From the looks of the packaging, Cry Baby Tears are supposed to be so sour that they make you cry. They certainly were […]

Lindt Excellence – Blackberry with Acai, Lychee, and Pomegranate

July 13th, 2015 by Rosa

Believe it or not, getting a PhD takes up a lot of time. I haven’t updated in a while, but I’ve been, at least temporarily, broken out of my hiatus by two things: 1) I was in Berlin for a conference/workshop and came back with some German candy; and 2) I just received some free samples of U.S. Lindt […]

Crispy M&M’s comeback + giveaway reminder

October 9th, 2014 by Rosa

YOU GUYS! Crispy M&M’s are coming back! Starting in January of 2015! If you can’t tell, I’m pretty excited. I loved Crispy M&M’s as a kid. They’ve got the tasty crunchiness and mix of sweet/starchy of Pretzel M&M’s, but a superior lighter texture, if my memory serves me correctly. Is it January yet? Also, don’t forget to […]

Peanut Hottie

August 29th, 2014 by Patty

Howdy! I’m Patty, a professor of Psychological Sciences at a small college in the midwest. Some important background information: I’m absolutely obsessed with peanut butter. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t keep any sort of nut butter in the house, or I’ll enter into a nut-butter-induced-fugue-state…within a few hours, the nut butter will […]

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen

August 22nd, 2014 by Rosa

This is the second bag of Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. They caught my eye because I’ve never seen them in the U.S., and they had a giant Neu sticker on it, which made me think that they were, well, New. Google translate tells me that Bärchen-Pärchen means Bear Couple. Doesn’t have quite […]

Alcove Chocolates – Brownie

July 28th, 2014 by Rosa

Last week, I covered Alcove Chocolates‘ mimosa, red velvet, fleur de sel, and fleur de pretzel chocolate bars. Today, I’ve got a rundown of their Brownie bar, another free sample from Alcove Chocolates. My boyfriend loves brownies – he can easily pack away half a pan in one sitting – so he was super excited […]

Hot glue gun, but for chocolate

July 1st, 2014 by Rosa

Here’s a fun new Kickstarter that looks pretty cool, especially if you’re big into decorative baking: the ChocoLazer Chocolate Melting Gun. I’m not sold on the name, but the idea is pretty cool – it’s like a hot glue gun, but instead of glue sticks, it melts chocolate sticks. The controlled melting of the chocolate […]
