Cadbury Chomp vs Cadbury Fudge

Cadbury Chomp vs Cadbury Fudge [Reviews]

With the weakness of today’s dollar abroad, it’s nice to know that some overseas candies remain affordable. Cadbury Chomp and Cadbury Fudge may be small, but they’re reliably priced right on the wrapper at 15p (about 30 cents). And, as a bonus, they come with built-in portion control! First off, Cadbury Chomp: The Chomp is…

Jelly Bean Factory Gourmet Beans

Speaking of Jelly Bellies, I had bought two small boxes of duty-free Jelly Bellies on my flight to England to give as hostess gifts. Though I saw them at John Lewis, a high-end U.K. department store, and sold with a Marks and Spencer’s stamp at, you guessed it, M&S, none of my Jelly Belly recipients…

Terry’s Chocolate Orange Segsations

For most Americans, Terry’s Chocolate Orange is associated with Christmas. Or at least, for me it is. I think they used to run an ad campaign during that time with the tagline of “whack and unwrap” that marketed them as stocking stuffers or something. In the U.K., they’re more ubiquitous and comes without the holiday…

It reminds me a little of that…

Mars Revels

I thought I’d follow up Wednesday’s review of Mars Planets with a review of Mars Revels, a similar UK offering. Revels are like the Planets in that they’re chocolate covered spheres (more or less) with various fillings. While Planets had nougat, fake malt, and caramel, the Revels are filled with caramel, raisin, orange, coffee, chocolate,…

Das Caramels in NY Times

The NY Times dining section’s weekly Food Stuff from a couple of weeks ago featured news on New York sweets. Florence Fabricant was a bit late on the scoop of how great Das Caramels are. I reviewed the classic and chai latte varieties back in November and February, respectively. Cybele caught them even earlier in…

Mars Planets

Mars Planets were a UK treat I had high hopes for mostly because they included what looked like malted milk balls, and I loooove malted milk balls. I could (and have) eaten malt powder straight and dry as a snack. I wonder if I should be ashamed of that… it seems rather akin to eating…
