Trolli Soda Poppers - Candy Review

Trolli Soda Poppers: Fizzy Goodness?

I found these Trolli Soda Poppers while I was trolling (har har) the candy aisles of a local gas station. I’d never heard of them before, but they’ve apparently been around long enough to warrant a “New Look!” The Soda Poppers came in Cherry Cola, Root Beer, Orange Soda, Lemon Lime, and Cola flavors. As…

Sweets and Snacks Expo 2013 – Day 2

Day 2 of Sweets and Snacks was our last day, though the conference went on for one more day. We had only about a third of the floor to cover, so we were able to take it easy and take our time. I had a nice chat with Nestle about their Cocoa Plan. They’re working…

Happy Memorial Day

I’ve gotten a bit behind on life, thanks to travel for Sweets and Snacks last week. I owe y’all a wrap-up of our second/final day at the Expo, and then it’s time to get to reviewing all the sweets that I picked up! Today, however, is a U.S. holiday, so I’m putting everything off for…

The Sweets and Snacks Expo is the big annual candy and snacks convention/trade show, where hundreds of companies show up to show off what they’re making and selling. Last year, I got a bazillion samples that provided…

Madécasse Chocolate – Sea Salt & Nibs

On Wednesday, I covered Madécasse Chocolate‘s Pink Pepper & Citrus bar. They make bean-to-bar chocolate in Madagascar, which, in addition to paying their cocoa farmers a fair price, generates 4 times the impact of Fair Trade. Today, I’m writing up their Sea Salt & Nibs bar, which brags that it was Best in Show in…
