Moonstruck Chocolates

I bought these Moonstruck truffles at a posh gift shop in Rochester. They cost a pretty penny, so I limited myself to three: Peppercorn and Sesame (it was on sale; half off), Ocumarian, and Chocolate Malted Cream Cone. Peppercorn and Sesame was a dark chocolate square prettily decorated with a pink speckled white chocolate topper….

Tom and Sally’s Organic Skinny Bars

I bought two Tom and Sally’s 100% Organic Skinny Bars at a little chocolate shop near the Berkshires in Massachusetts. I tried to look up more about them, but Google seems to think there’s something scary about their website. First up, a Belgian 41% milk chocolate infused with cocoa nibs. The chocolate was dark for…

Cemoi Atelier des Gourmets

I bought this box of Cemoi L’Atelier des Gourmets at Whole Foods. They were half off in a post-winter holiday sale. There were four different chocolates in the box, each with their own hoity-toity name: Kheops, Evasion, Arabica, and Coupelle. Kheops was described as, “crunchy gianduja and whole almond.” It came in a pretty flat-topped…

Kit Kat Sweet Potato - Review

Japanese Kit Kat – Sweet Potato Flavor!

My friends Nana and Justin have been living and blogging abroad for the last few years. They’ve been a generous source of awesome foreign candy. Their latest gift was several Japanese Kit Kats in Wasabi and Sweet Potato flavor. I’ll cover Kit Kat Sweet Potato today; Wasabi will be reviewed on Friday. And stay tuned…

Sour Power Sortz – Dorval’s Sour Punch Straws

These Sour Power Sortz were included in my NCA shipment full of free candy samples. Yes, that shipment was over a year ago… Candy keeps pretty well, especially in chilly Rochester, and I have a Sisyphean supply of it. It was billed as “candy straws in 4 different flavors. Strawberry, Apple/Peach, Raspberry/Grape, & Tutti Frutti.”…

Super Mario 3-Dees Gummies

Happy 2011! Hope y’all had a restful holiday season. Mine was great. And now, back to work! On with the review… I love Au’some’s fruit strings and nugget treats (I’ve always eaten them before I could get around to properly reviewing them), so I was excited to try these Super Mario 3-Dees Gummies, also by…

Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews

These Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews were free samples, courtesy of the folks at Candy Central. I’m super familiar with their hard candies and lollipops, and I’ve even had their fruit chew-filled lollipops, but this was the first time that I’ve had just the fruit chews. They came in four flavors: cherry, watermelon, green apple, and…

Goldkenn – Swiss Gold PralinĂ©

This gold bar of a pralinĂ© was in my free Sweets and Snacks Expo goodie bag, courtesy of the NCA. It’s hard to tell what its proper name is from the external packaging – the embossed Goldkenn logo is rather blurry. The single bar was actually comprised of two smaller bars. The smaller bars were…
