See’s Assorted Chocolates Week 2 – Day 3

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. On Monday, I covered four of their truffles. Wednesday, I reviewed four Dark…

Vidal Sour Rainbow Pencils

Vidal Candies had a colorful booth at Sweets and Snacks full of all kinds of non-chocolate treats. It looked like they carried candies that are more commonly seen abroad than in the U.S., like these Sour Rainbow Pencils that they gave me as free samples. I ate tons and tons of filled licorice pencils in…

Ferrero Raffaello

Ferrero Raffaello: What Is It? [Review]

I’ve written before how, when I was a kid, Ferrero Rochers were the pinnacle of fine chocolate.

This was described as “cookie wafers, coconut caramel creme and chewy caramel, topped with toasted coconut.” Like the…

Russell Stover Coconut

First Up? Russell Stover Coconut! [Review]

I picked up a bag of assorted Russell Stover candy for half off in a post-Christmas sale. I guess the little bow in the top left corner was what made it holiday-y. I think the packaging was so sparsely decorated that it needn’t have been designated a holiday-specific candy. But who am I to complain…

Twix Coconut – Updated with Giveaway!

Twix Coconut is the newest limited edition offering from the folks at Mars. It’s comprised of “creamy milk chocolate, crunchy cookie, [and] coconut flavored caramel.” Mine came as a free sample in a press pack inside a plastic coconut and with a tiny USB that I first thought was a fun-sized regular Twix bar. Hooray…

Hedonist Farm Egg Truffles

Usually I review Easter candies after the holiday is over – love those steep next day sales! But today, I’m actually reviewing an Easter product before Easter, thanks to free samples from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. These Farm Egg Truffles are made to look like (aka are not made from) farm eggs. They are mind-bogglingly gorgeous with…
