Maynards Fuzzy Peach

Maynards Fuzzy Peach [Review]

Maynards Fuzzy Peach is an all time candy, but one you may not have heard of here in the States. The reason? Maynards is only available in the UK and Canada (check out my review on their Wine Gums here). You know them though – they are the geniuses behind Sour Patch Kids and their proceeding…

Mast Brothers single origin dark chocolate bar – Madagascar

Today’s the last of the three Mast Brothers single origin chocolate bars, the Madagascar, that I bought at Cocoa Cinnamon, a local coffee shop. I reviewed the Belize last Friday, and the Papua New Guinea on Monday. Wrapper description: “This organic cacao is sourced from a single farm in Madagascar’s northwest coast. Bold, with notes of blood orange, raspberry,…

Mast Brothers single origin dark chocolate bar – Papua New Guinea

Here’s the second of the three Mast Brothers single origin chocolate bars, the Papua New Guinea, that I picked up at my local fancy coffee shop, Cocoa Cinnamon. I reviewed the Belize last Friday, and I’ll review the Madagascar this Friday. Its wrapper description: “After harvest, these beans are uniquely smoked. This post-fermentation process imparts incredible flavor; think…

Ritter Sport – Milk Chocolate with Cocoa Mousse

Last Friday, I reviewed the Limited Edition Ritter Sport Raspberry and Cranberry Yogurt, one of the 4 Ritter Sport samples that I got from Euro-American Brands at Sweets and Snacks. This week, I’ll cover the other three, for a delicious Ritter Sporty week! First up, the Milk Chocolate with Cocoa Mousse, a new Ritter bar…

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…

JinJu Chocolates – Akoya Collection

Today’s JinJu Chocolates’ Akoya Collection came in the same dual-layer swivel box as the Fleur de Sel caramels that I reviewed on Wednesday. The collection consisted of 5 gorgeously painted/airbrushed molded dome truffles in mostly fruity flavors. Berry Mascarpone was a magenta truffle decorated with red speckles and a brown X. It was a “summer…

Ritter Sport – Yogurt

The Ritter Sport Yogurt is an elusive chocolate bar. Its more common brethren, like Milk Chocolate with Cornflakes or Dark Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts, are easily found in many major grocery stores in the U.S., but I’ve only ever seen the Yogurt in the wild in specialty fine food stores, random NYC bodegas, or Europe….
