Lindt White Coconut

I’m usually not a fan of white chocolate. But Walgreen’s had Lindt on sale, and I couldn’t resist picking up this bar of White Coconut, as I’d never tried it before. It was a white chocolate bar “with delicate coconut flakes”. I don’t universally hate white chocolate – Trader Joe’s white chocolate chips are great…

UHA High Concentrated Milk Candy

Today, I start delving into the substantial stash that I picked up in China. First up is two varieties of UHA high concentrated milk candy. I reviewed the original version way back in October of 2007. First up, the chocolate version. The front of the bag shows an oozing lozenge-looking thing. The back labels the…

ZItner's Butter Krak Egg - Review

Zitner’s Butter Krak Egg: A Not So Sweet Review

I got this Butter Krak confection from my friend Laurel. I don’t remember where she bought it. I think she mostly bought it because the name’s hilarious. Neither the wrapper nor the name gave much indication as to exactly what this was. The ingredients list did list “cocoanut”. Typo or purposeful pun? More about Zitner’s……

Mini Ritter Sport Round-up – Part I

My May trip to Italy meant a layover in Frankfurt, which in turn meant that I got to buy lots of Duty Free Ritter Sport. In fact, I managed to leave Europe with not one but two sets of mini Ritter Sport assortments. The below Schokowurfel set had 6 varieties (Sorten?): Creme Coco, Mandel Split,…

Coconut M&M's

Coconut M&M’s – Get Your Island On! [Review]

Coconut M&M’s have been out for a while, but I only just stumbled across them at a local convenience store. They had started out as a limited edition M&M, but I do believe they’ve now morphed into a permanent addition. They smelled like a mix of generic quality chocolate and coconut sunscreen. The M&M’s were…

Almond Joy Pieces

Almond Joy Pieces [Review]

I thought I nabbed a candy scoop with these Almond Joy Pieces. A quick Google revealed that they’ve been out for nearly a year now, and Candy Addict and Candy Blog‘s already covered them! Guess it just took me a while to come across them in stores. Hershey’s basically extrapolated their Reese’s Pieces concept to…

Zagnut

According to its entry on Hershey’s website, the Zagnut has been around for ~80 years now (I think Hershey’s needs to update their mathing). Wikipedia says that it used to be owned by the Clark Company, though how Hershey’s ended up with Zagnut and Necco ended up with the Clark Bar, I don’t know. Cybele…

Hedonist Spice Collection Truffles

Today’s review is more from Hedonist’s constantly changing truffle line-up: their current Spice Collection. It consists of peanut butter cayenne, raspberry wasabi, orange chipotle, lemon pepper, and coconut curry – clearly a very spicy Spice Collection. I was fortunate enough to receive a free sample box to review from the kind ladies at Hedonist. I…

Mama’s Goodies – Part II

The continuation of Monday‘s Mama’s Goodies nut brittle reviews: Cashew Nut Crunch This has the same thick brittle base as the pecan nut crunch. Cashews, however, are a much lighter flavored nut than pecans, and the cashews here are chopped up into tiny bits, so their flavor winds up totally overwhelmed by the brittle base….

Godiva Truffles

Godiva Truffles [Review]

Back before I started candy blogging in earnest, I thought Godiva was the pinnacle of chocolates. How could they not be, with their beautiful, shiny, golden ballotins? When I was in middle school, my family got bumped up to first class for a Shanghai to Tokyo flight. They served Godivas for dessert, which only bolstered…
