Hedonist Spring Teas Collection

Having fairly recently reviewed and enjoyed Charles Chocolates’s tea truffles, I was excited when I got the chance to try Hedonists’s take on the genre when they gave me a free box of their Spring Teas Truffle Collection. Jasmine was beautifully painted with green swirls and green speckles. It tasted mostly of deep, dark chocolate…

Kit Kat Map

It’s a well-known fact (at least in the candy blogosphere) that Japan has all sorts of crazy Kit Kat flavors. I’ve reviewed some here and here, and Jen’s got a whole blog devoted to it. Via my friend Katie and Jezebel, here’s a map of this year’s regional flavors. If only it was blow-upable or…

Hedonist Pecan Cranberry Bark

I’ve got some more Hedonist goodies to review, courtesy of free samples from Zahra and Jennie. Today we’ve got their Pecan Cranberry Bark, and I’ll cover their Spring Tea Truffle Collection on Friday. The Pecan Cranberry Bark is described on their website as, “shards of semi-sweet chocolate (55%) swirled with white chocolate and sprinkled with…

Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict

“What is a Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict?” is a perfect Jeopardy Before and After question. It also looks like a serious sugar bomb. Check out Cakespy‘s… inventive recipe for an all sweets Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict at Serious Eats.

Caramel Apple Sugar Babies

I received several fun-sized bags of Caramel Apple Sugar Babies last Halloween in my NCA goodie bag. I thought they were a new product, but apparently they’ve been around for a while, as Candy Blog and Candy Addict both reviewed them back in 2007. The wrapper called them “milk caramels with apple candy coating.” To…

Lindt a Touch of Sea Salt

Lindt‘s “A Touch of Sea Salt” bar has been on the market for a while: Chocablog covered it way back in August 2008, and Cybele wrote about it last October. I finally picked one up last week because it was on sale at good old Wegmans. The package design is simple – a balanced Lindt…

Zero

Hershey’s Zero bar‘s claim to fame is its white coating. Specifically, it’s “caramel, peanut and almond nougat covered with white fudge.” Mine came free, courtesy of Munchies Sweets and Treats.  It was a bit too abundantly full of caramel, I guess, as my bar’s trademark white coating was streaked with it. The bottom layer of…

Playable Chocolate Records

My boyfriend shared this YouTube video about a German man who makes playable records out of chocolate. Let it be known that he sent me the scoop before Serious Eats wrote about it; it just took a while to make it through my posting queue for publication.

Wonka Sluggles Gummies

I think Nestle deserves a prize for making a candy with a name that’s so much fun to say: Sluggles. Sluggles sluggles sluggles sluggles. And so friendly sounding! I wonder if that’s why the Snuggie caught on more than the Slanket, because the former was way more fun to say than the latter? Tangent aside,…
