Das caramels

Before I left school for Thanksgiving break, I checked my PO Box one last time. Surprise! There was a box of caramel samples from Das Foods. I was thankful that I’d thought to check my mail; otherwise I would have had to wait an extra week to taste these. The caramels may come in a…

Shameless Self Promotion, a Chocolate comic, & Tuesday’s news

Well Fed‘s 2007 Food Blog Award nominations start tomorrow and go until December 5th! They have 14 categories for food blog awards, including Best Food Blog – Theme and Best New Food Blog. Hint hint.

Lula’s Chocolates – Aloha Rocky Road

I was so excited to receive this sample of Lula’s Chocolates’ Aloha Rocky Road. The wrapper says it contains “homemade, artisan marshmallows”, “Hawaiian, house-roasted macadamia nuts”, and “premium milk chocolate”. Doesn’t that just sound delectable? I like the Hawaiian twist on your traditional rocky road with the addition of macadamia nuts in place of almonds…

Emily’s Chocolates’ Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

An extremely generous box of samples arrived from Emily’s Chocolates (BUY on Amazon!) while I was out of town for Thanksgiving break, so I didn’t get them until yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to taste everything in there, but I did try the cookies, and they were most definitely worth the wait. In fact,…

That Popcorn Place Decadent Gourmet Popcorn

Earlier this week, my friend Cassie took me to That Popcorn Place on the downtown Drag near UT. What a wonderful food find!

Russell Stover Caramel & Marshmallow Pumpkin

I’m a college student, and it’s practically my job to procrastinate. Which is why I’m allowed to post reviews of Halloween candy during Thanksgiving week. I actually have a few more pumpkins and a ghost waiting for reviews as well, but I left them at school and haven’t tasted them yet. After all, candy is…

Clark Bar [Review]

Clark bar, 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. What is a Clark Bar? As the wrapper says, a…

Cookie Week and how to win a truck trunk full of gum

Emily’s Chocolates reminded me that this week is National Cookie Week. I’ve missed Monday (oops; this week has been hectic), but there’s plenty more Cookie Week left! And Emily’s Chocolates’ cookies look goooood. Free shipping on orders over $30 before November 23rd. They sent me some samples (review to come later), but I didn’t get…
