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….

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…

Guest post: Sier Ijscups Chocolade

Ex-pat in the Netherlands Knile is back for the day! ~Rosa It’s been far too long since I’ve been in this space. It’s not for lack of material, believe me.

Regular Baci come wrapped in thick white foil with blue stars, while the Baci White were wrapped…

Ritter Sport – Yogurt

The Ritter Sport Yogurt is an elusive chocolate bar.

Perugina Chocolates – Milk Chocolate with Almonds, Dark Chocolate with Almonds, & Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts

Today I’m reviewing three more of the Perugina bars that I got as free samples at Sweets and Snacks. I’d covered the three plain bars last week; today’s theme is chocolate with nuts. Milk Chocolate with Almonds was described as “a crunchy almond caramel blend with the delicate flavor of milk chocolate.” Its break was…

Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint

Now that Halloween is over, winter holiday chocolate should be making its way onto store shelves. I believe Ritter Sport Dark Chocolate with Peppermint is sold year-round in Europe (any European readers want to weigh in?), but here in the U.S. it’s a limited edition for winter. Mine was a free sample from Sweets and…
