Choceur Milk Chocolate Almond Clusters

I found these Choceur Milk Chocolate Almond Clusters at Aldi. I almost didn’t buy them because they didn’t sound that exciting. That is, until I took a closer look and saw the fine print: “almond and gingerbread pieces with milk chocolate.” Now that sounds exciting! Oh yeah; they’re also supposed to be “deliciously crunchy.” I…

Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M’s

I had been looking for Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M’s for ages, since they first starting popping up in the candy blogosphere.

Blog Action Day – Climate Change

Today is the third annual Blog Action Day, when blogs around the world write about the same subject to generate awareness.

Vere Raspberry + Lemon

Here’s the second of my two Vere bars (remember, they were buy one get one free), Vere Raspberry + Lemon. Like its Mint + Nibs counterpart, the Raspberry + Lemon is an organic, single origin bar. It takes the cacao content up a notch, to 75%, and I found that difference hugely apparent. The snap…

Rock Candy Crystals

Before we begin, I must warn you – today’s post is sort of a cop-out. Ya see, a box of free samples arrived from Munchies Sweets and Treats right in the midst of a gloomy patch of Rochester weather. I rely on direct sunlight to take my photos, so lack of sunlight means lack of…
