Guest post: Ritter Sport à la Crema Catalana

Here’s another guest post from ex-pat friend Neil! ~Rosa Late on a Friday night at a German supermarket, I discovered a new Ritter Sport flavor I hadn’t even seen advertised yet: the Ritter Sport à la Crema Catalana. I spied something like a crème brûlée on the package and my heart skipped a beat. I bought…

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…

Walker’s Assorted Toffee

I love Walker’s toffees, so when my friends Emma and Jason asked me if I wanted any candies from England, I asked for some Walker’s. They brought me this box of Assorted Toffees (and also a box of After Eight thins). The Assorted Toffees were English cream toffee, plain chocolate, milk chocolate, banana, and eclair….

Albanese Rainforest Gummi Frogs

Sometimes I let tasting notes sit around for a loooong time. Case in point, I got some Albanese rainforest gummi frogs as free samples at Sweets and Snacks last May. I ate and took notes on them a few months after that, and I just recently found those notes buried in an old notepad. Whoops…

Sunkist Lemon Gummies

I bought these Sunkist Lemon Gummies at the dollar store. There were also Sunkist strawberry gummies there, but I just bought the lemon since I like citrus flavors. The yellow gummies were shaped like little lemon slices. They were firm with a bouncy bite that was too solid for me to tear cleanly through the gummi…

After Eight Mint Chocolate Thins

My friends Emma and Jason recently took a vacation to London and brought me back a box of After Eight Mint Chocolate Thins. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’d recall that I spent the summer of 2008 in the UK, during which I reviewed the regular After Eights. The Mint Chocolate…

Chocolate Limes

These Chocolate Limes were the other candy treat that Ariel and Logan brought me from Bermuda (the other was the excellent Cadbury Time Out that I covered on Wednesday). It turns out that I’ve actually covered a version of this treat in my British Boiled Sweets round-up, only this time I got a fresh bag…
