Guest Post: Barambo Lenten Dark Chocolate with Dried Candied Lemon Peel Cubes

June 13th, 2012 by Neil

I’ve turned reviews this week over to Neil, my globe-trotting expat friend. ~Rosa Easily the most exotic trip I’ve taken in a while was to the Republic of Georgia, where I visited a childhood friend of mine for a long weekend and saw some absolutely breathtaking scenery.

Guest Post: Nestle Kit Kat Chunky Caramel Duo

April 20th, 2012 by Neil

Globe-trotting Neil (it’s so unfair how easy it is to travel between European countries!) has another across the pond review for you. ~Rosa As promised, I have some posts up my sleeve. While waiting for dinner to cook tonight, I thought I’d simultaneously have a snack and feel productive by writing this. I pulled out a Nestle Kit Kat […]

Balinese Chocolate Factory

December 8th, 2011 by Rosa

Via my friend Neil, a prettily photographed NY Times T Magazine piece about a new chocolate factory in Bali. The neat twist? The factory is built almost entirely out of bamboo!

Guest Post: Cadbury Dairy Milk Bliss Dreamy Chocolate Truffle

October 24th, 2011 by Neil

Here’s another Euro-chocolate review from Neil! Any readers know if these Cadbury Blisses are related to Hershey’s Bliss in the U.S.? ~Rosa Hallo! Neil here with another European treat.
