Giant Peep

See’s Assorted Chocolates Week 2 – Day 1

Back in 2009, I devoted a whole week to See’s Chocolates as I reviewed an assorted box that they sent me. This week will be another week of See’s Chocolates reviews, only this time, I’ll be reviewing a box that I bought and picked out myself in Seattle. Today, I’ll go through the four Truffles…

Chocolati Truffles

While I was in Seattle last week for a conference, I stayed an extra day to do some sightseeing, which included a whirl around their awesome Central Library.

Jelly Belly infographic

Apparently this past Monday was National Jelly Bean day (oops! How did I let that slip by?). To honor the occasion, Jelly Belly made a jelly bean infographic.

Robyn, I am in awe of your Pocky photography skillz, as the above was the best that I could do. Also, I hope someday someone…

Kit Kat Art

Via AdFreak, Australia celebrated its limited edition white chocolate Kit Kat by having an illustrator melt them down and paint them into posters. The effect was quite stunning, as you can see in the below video. The full set of all 50 posters can be found in this Facebook album from Kit Kat Australia.

Trader Joe's Laceys Cookies

Trader Joe’s Laceys Cookies – Dark Chocolate Almond

Cookies? Why am I reviewing cookies on my candy blog? Because these Laceys Cookies are more or less made out of almond brittle and chocolate, so they’re basically candy. Plus they’re freakin’ delicious. What they look like: The Laceys were two rounds of thin almond brittle cookies, about 2.5 inches in diameter, sandwiching a generous layer…
