Razzberry M&M’s, limited edition

With their limited edition Razzberry M&M’s (BUY!), Mars has further added to an already fairly expansive line of M&M (BUY!) varieties. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! These guys were tasty. I brought them to a party, and they disappeared in about ten minutes. If Mars had made the packaging and the M&M’s a…

Matthew’s blog and my interview with him

I’ve been reading a blog by this kid named Matthew. He has Asberger’s Syndrome and wants to write about everything in the world by interviewing lots and lots of people. Here’s his interview with me. What a wonderfully precocious kid. Thanks for interviewing me, Matthew!

Sera visits The Chocolate Show

Sera from Candy Addict got to go to The Chocolate Show that I had previously blogged about. It looks like she had a great time. So jealous! Maybe next year I’ll have time and funds to go myself. My chocolate party was on Sunday, and it went well. Fourteen of my friends and I tasted…

Abba Zaba

More taffy? But why, Rosa? You don’t even like taffy! More curiosity, but this time with good reason, for the Abba Zaba┬áis not just taffy – it’s peanut butter-filled taffy! But alas, it was still taffy, and therefore it wasn’t for me. I first heard about the Abba Zaba when I read about it in…

Googlenopes and David Lebovitz answers chocolate FAQs

David Lebovitz’s blog is one of my daily reads. Here he answers FAQs about chocolate. It’s quite informative. Gene Weingarten’s writing is another daily read of mine (via his online chats and columns). A Googlenope, a term Weingarten coined, is a phrase that, when googled with quotation marks around it, gets no hits. A Googleyup…

French Chew Taffy – chocolate flavored

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…

Ferrero Rocher

Ferrero Rocher (BUY!) are a pretty classic treat, and they’re probably Ferrero’s (BUY!) most famous product in the U.S. Whenever my parents go back to China, they buy a bunch to give our relatives to give as gifts (they’re cheaper in the U.S. than they are in China). As a kid, I thought Rochers were…

Mon Cheri

Mon Cheri (BUY!) chocolates, also by Ferrero (BUY!), are attractively packaged, so they look more expensive than they actually are. They also look like they’d taste better than they actually do. That isn’t to say that Mon Cheri chocolates are bad, exactly, they’re just not that great. The individual chocolates are individually wrapped in shiny…
