See’s Assorted Chocolates Week – Day 3

Today marks the conclusion of Rosa eats her way through an entire box of See’s on her own because it’s delicious and free. I began my journey on Monday, continued on Wednesday, and today, the finish line is in sight. I’m not sure what makes the California brittle Californian. It’s a hard toffee with almonds…

Candy and Romance

Hey kids, this post is rated PG-13, though in a really tame way. Anywho, you’ve been warned. Valentine’s Day is this Saturday, which is a big day for candy gift-giving. My boyfriend rightly believes that I have more than enough candy, so I’m just hoping for a back rub rather than any of these guys…

See’s Assorted Chocolates Week – Day 2

Today we have the next batch of chocolates out of the free sample box of See’s Assorted Chocolates that I started reviewing on Monday. First up, their vanilla nut cream, a vanilla buttercream with English walnuts. What makes English walnuts better than walnuts unaffiliated with a specific nation? I suppose that’s a moot point. Anyway,…

Taza Chocolate Contest

I’ve never had the pleasure of tasting Taza Chocolate, mostly because I don’t have access to a car while I’m at school, and shipping chocolate can get pretty expensive. I heard about it from my friend Nana, who tried it and loved it so much that she just had to email me about it, so…

See’s Assorted Chocolates Week – Day 1

Ever since someone brought my family a can of See’s Almond Royal as a hostess gift, See’s Candies has been a Li family favorite. When we were on the West Coast last winter, we made sure to visit at least one See’s store to load up. I’ve also previously reviewed one of their chocolate fundraiser…

Chocolate Gadgets

I love kitchen gadgets and can happily spends ages wandering around Williams-Sonoma or Sur La Table while lusting after a specialized tool to pit cherries or whatever. Just ask my friends how much I crow over my mellon baller. Via Cooking Gadgets, here’s a list of 10 chocolate gadgets for me to add to my…

Necco Sky Bar

Necco Sky Bar Candy [Review]

I tried. I really, really tried to give the Necco Sky Bar a fair shake of a review. It’s a retro bar and is deliberately marketed as such, with its matte-looking wrapper, photos, and font. Nostalgia is about all this guy’s got going for it. The bar is billed as “4 flavors in milk chocolate.”…

M&Ms Contest x2: Free M&Ms!

M&Ms just sent me a huge package of their special all green M&Ms for Valentine’s Day. I guess the logic comes from Ms. Green being the only female M&M, so she makes a good jumping off point to brand green the color of love? Anyways, M&M is running a contest on their website to win…
