Aunt Sally’s Creamy Pralines – Sugar & Spice

My roommate brought home a pack of these Sugar and Spice-flavored version of Aunt Sally’s Creamy Pralines after her trip home to New Orleans. I nabbed one and filed it away in my candy stash, where it promptly got forgotten. Thankfully, per Roddy’s urging on the ZOMG, Candy! Facebook discussion page, I dug it out…

Twix Java

I got this Twix Java in my Sweets and Snacks Expo press pack. It’s not a new bar; instead, it’s been on and off the market as a limited edition since at least 2007. I, unfortunately, had never been lucky enough to catch it in the wild in any of its previous incarnations, so this…

I’ll be reviewing the final two…

Toffee with Pretzels and Beer

This NY Times Food Stuff blurb about Toffee + Pretzels + Beer is reminiscent of The Kitchn’s recipe for Ale and Pretzel Caramels. The former is probably more expensive, but you don’t have to worry about ruining your pans!

Other Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part I

Last week, I did a 2-part (I and II) round-up of Schokowurfel, a set of 7 tiny Ritter Sports that I bought in Europe. Today and Friday, I’ll review the second set of somewhat larger mini Ritter Sport chocolates that I purchased on the same trip. Unlike the single-squared Schokowurfel, these mini Ritter Sports were…
