Hedonist Farm Egg Truffles

Usually I review Easter candies after the holiday is over – love those steep next day sales! But today, I’m actually reviewing an Easter product before Easter, thanks to free samples from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. These Farm Egg Truffles are made to look like (aka are not made from) farm eggs. They are mind-bogglingly gorgeous with…

Butterfinger Snackerz

Butterfinger Snackerz are a relatively new addition to the Butterfinger lineup. I got mine as a free sample as part of a gift bag from the National Confectioners Association. The front of the wrapper called them, “crispy bite-size candies with a smooth Butterfinger-flavored center, ” while the back anointed them, “crispy, chocolatey bite-sized treats with…

The Dark 70% was simply described as “dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content.” It had…

They call their milk chocolate Cashmere, which I find a fitting name, as I associate milk chocolate with…

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Drops

I got to try this small, sample-sized bag of Hershey’s Drops as a free sample via the National Confectioners Association. It’s hard for me to envision these Drops as anything but a wannabe M&M’s competitor. Even Drops’s slogan of “No candy shell – No mess” calls to mind the M&M’s catchphrase, “Melts in your mouth,…
