Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I hope all our servicemen and women, past and present, know that our country is grateful for their sacrifices, and I hope that all active duty military get to make it home safe and sound and soon. I also hope that those who get the day off enjoy it! I’m taking a…

Palmer Peanut Butter Crispy Yums

On Wednesday, I reviewed some free samples of Palmer‘s Kiddie Chow. Today, I’ll cover their Peanut Butter Crispy Yums, which were also included in my free sample shipment. They came in the same-sized tub as the Kiddie Chow, but because the Crispy Yums were denser, the tub was 12 oz. rather than 7. Despite their…

Perfume Candy

Here’s a candy press release that’s almost too weird to believe. Even just the opening line is ridiculous in its brevity: “Sugar-free, fragrance-transmitting candy is now available for the first time in Europe.” Apparently, Beneo and Alpi have created a candy that makes the eater exude the scent of roses from his or her pores….

Palmer Kiddie Chow

I recently received several free samples of chocolate goods from Palmer Candy. Today I’ll review their Kiddie Chow, and Friday I’ll cover their Peanut Butter Crispy Yums. The Kiddie Chow came in a generous 7 oz. tub. I’ve made Kiddie Chow before, though I knew it as Puppy Chow. It’s called that because it’s made…

Candy Survival

Via my friend Katie and the Daily Beast comes news of a woman who was trapped in her car for seven weeks and survived on candy, melted snow, and bits of beef jerky. Good to know that if I’m ever trapped in my room, I could survive for years off my candy stash. Though I…

Dagoba Xocolatl

Here’s another bar from the Dagoba line, the Xocolatl. It’s described as “rich dark chocolate, chilies, and nibs.” It had a 74% base, perhaps the same chocolate that made up the New Moon? The chocolate had a dry and crunchy snap. It was tough for me to get a flavor profile from this bar because…

Dagoba Chocolates – Milk and New Moon

I received a couple of Dagoba chocolate squares in my American Chocolate Week Chocolate Gift Pack: Milk and New Moon. I’d reviewed the Milk before, but that was years ago, and it was nice to take another gander at it with a much darker Dagoba bar for contrast. The Milk was 37% cacao. The coloring…

Candy Cake Wrecks

How timely! On the day that I ran my post about Cake Wreck’s sweet candy-themed cakes, they were running a post about how candy + cakes can go horribly awry. Seriously, do people buy those cakes? Because something is making bakeries think that they are worth making.

Look – Parfait a la Mode

Monday, I reviewed the Look Baskin Robbins Collaboration. Today, I’ll cover the Look Parfait a la Mode. I received both Look sets as free samples from Tsunami.hk. Like the Baskin Robbins Collaboration, the Parfait a la Mode was 12 little filled rectangles of chocolate. This time, the four flavors were Blueberry, Pudding, Strawberry, and Chocolate….
