Swedish Fish: Why Are They Called That?

Swedish Fish – “A Friend You Can Eat” With a tagline like that, you can expect the history behind Swedish Fish to also be weird. For those who have been living under a rock, Swedish Fish are a gummy candy shaped like a fish. They are most famous for their red flavor, but they come…

Hi-Chew Sours - Lemon, Lime and Grapefruit flavor

REVIEW: Hi-Chew Sours!

An interesting twist for the Hi-Chew brand that pays off brilliantly What an amazing find. I usually find the individually wrapped Hi-Chew Tropical Mix at my local Daiso store. That version is always there, but the bag has a banana flavor that I really do not like (a rant for another review). However, after a recent…

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…

Madécasse Chocolate – Pink Pepper & Citrus

Madécasse Chocolate is a new company to me. They’re “bean-to-bar in Madagascar” and, though they’re not Fair Trade certified (probably due to the expense), they claim that their business practices generate 4 times the impact of fair trade cocoa. Pink Pepper & Citrus was 63% cocoa, pink pepper, & combava fruit. Combava fruit sounds super…
