Everyburger

This box of Everyburger was an impulse buy at my local Asian grocery store. I couldn’t read a word on the package besides “Everyburger”, but the box was shelved with other chocolate+cookie treats, so I assumed that these were some sort of chocolates+cookies shaped to look like hamburgers. Fortunately, my assumption was correct, and I…

Hello Panda – Strawberry and Double Choco

Hello Panda is Meiji‘s answer to Lotte’s Koala’s March: cream-filled cookies imprinted with cute animal cartoons. I got a couple of boxes to try in my free MunchPak samples, first in Strawberry and the following month in Double Choco. The Hello Panda biscuits were either round or round with ears, like teddy bear heads. The Strawberry…

Lotte Koala’s March Cookies

Lotte’s Koala March are “chocolate crème filled cookies” that can be found in Asian grocery stores in America. I recently got a free box from the folks at MunchPak, along with Koala March competitors Hello Panda (which I will review later). The pillow-shaped cookies are imprinted with adorable pictures of koalas in various garbs and doing…

Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond

I bought this Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond at Cost Plus World Market, along with last Friday’s Caramel-Orange. I was lucky to nab the last one of these that was on the shelf! This solid milk chocolate bar was generously embedded with bits of caramelized almonds. Those nuts brought a slightly crystallized crunch to…

Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramel-Orange

I’ve raved before about how Cost Plus World Market is a fantastic resource for new and unusual candies. I recently visited and found two Winter Edition Ritter Sports by accident – they were shelved far away from the regular Ritter Sports and other chocolates. In fact, they weren’t really shelved at all; I found them…

Kasugai Ramune Gummi

I usually buy my Kasugai gummies at Asian grocery stores, but I found this bag of ramune flavored gummies at a Cost Plus World Market. If you’re not familiar with ramune (not to be confused with ramen!), it’s a lemon-lime Asian soda that’s usually kept in a uniquely marble-stoppered bottle. Like all Kasugai gummies, these…

Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb

Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb [Review]

Remember when I posted about how weird the Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb bar sounded, and how I’d love to try it? Ask and you shall receive, at least when you’re a candy blogger! Sometimes… The folks at CyberCandy heard my plea and sent me a free sample of my very own Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb…

Milka Oreo

Milka Oreo [Review]

This Milka Oreo came to me via a visiting German student in the lab. It was a gift for the lab to share, so I couldn’t take it home to photograph in my usual set-up. Instead, I managed to snag some shots with my fancy new iPhone (finally gave up on my dumb phone when…

Oishi Hard Candies [Review]

I bought these Oishi Hard Candies while I was in China (I did more than just hug pandas there!). I don’t know the package says – I’m functionally illiterate in Chinese, so only recognize the character for fruit in the description – but I did manage to find them listed on the Oishi website, where…
