Alcove Chocolates – Brownie

Last week, I covered Alcove Chocolates‘ mimosa, red velvet, fleur de sel, and fleur de pretzel chocolate bars. Today, I’ve got a rundown of their Brownie bar, another free sample from Alcove Chocolates. My boyfriend loves brownies – he can easily pack away half a pan in one sitting – so he was super excited…

Alcove Chocolates – Fleur de Pretzel

On Monday, I covered 3 flavors of Alcove Chocolates that I had received as free samples. Today, it’s time to write about another Alcove treat, their Fleur de Pretzel bar. They described it as “rich milk chocolate paired with crunchy new york [sic. They seem to be allergic to the shift key on their website.]…

Lindt Lemon

Lindt Lemon is the newest chocolate bar in Lindt’s Excellence line-up, billed as “dark with citrus pieces and almond slivers”. I received a free sample from Lindt for review.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons

Nestle FruTips – Chinese Assortment

On Monday, I reviewed the mango, grapefruit, and lychee FruTips that I bought in China. Today, I’ll review their regular flavor assortment. The regular FruTips were the same size and texture as their specialized flavor counterparts, and they also contained lychee flavored jellies (white). You can refer to Monday’s review for my notes on texture…

Nestle FruTips – Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee

I’ll start with the Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee tube. The FruTips were thumbnail-sized flat disks that were covered in gritty sugar sand….
