Trader Joe’s Milk Chocolate filled with Caramel

Trader Joe’s recently introduced a new line of Belgian chocolate bars {filled with} stuff. They made a big splash on my radar because one of them was {filled with} speculoos cookie spread, which is SO MUCH NOMS!, and my Trader Joe’s didn’t carry them and probably never will. Instead, it carried the other two, caramel…

Russell Stover – Caramel

Today is the last of the assorted Russell Stover chocolates that I picked up in a post-holiday sale. Monday was coconut, Wednesday was mint, and today we conclude with caramel. The caramel is milk chocolate around a square of honey-amber colored caramel. The milk chocolate is thin and nicely shatters/crunches when bitten into. There’s not…

Trader Joe’s Fleur de Sel Caramels

These Trader Joe’s Fleur de Sel Caramels were an expensive (I think ~$7?) impulse candy buy from my last Trader Joe’s run. They came in a round plywood tub with a lid, sort of like a hatbox. The tub described them as “buttery, soft chewy caramels with imported French sea salt.” It had two sealed…

See's Scotchmallow

See’s Scotchmallow [Review]

Surprise! I’ve got one more See’s review for y’all. An extension of last week’s See’s week, I guess. I’ve breezed over the See’s Scotchmallow before, and it’s near the top of my list of favorite candies. It’s about time it warranted a full review. You can get Scotchmallows by the box, as part of an…

Harbor Sweets Sand Castle Dark Chocolate and Caramel Bar

Harbor Sweets is a Massachusetts based handmade chocolatier that makes cute molded chocolates, sometimes with various add-ins. They claim to “[celebrate] outdoor living [and] embrace the coast, gardening, and equestrian-sports”, hence the existence of a chocolate called the Tallyho! I got a free sample 16-piece box of their dark chocolate Perennial Sweets, which I’ll review…

Hedonist Salted Caramels

These salted caramels from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates were free samples that I got in the same package as the candy cane bark (Wednesday’s review). I’m a total sucker for salted caramels, especially when they’re covered in chocolate. The label simply described them as “buttery caramel and sea salt enrobed in rich chocolate.” The box of 10 had…

World Market Toffee Caramel Milk Chocolate

I’m working my way through Cost Plus World Market’s store brand of chocolate. Monday, I reviewed the Strawberry and Champagne Dark Chocolate. Today, we’ve got the Toffee Caramel Milk Chocolate. I was curious as to exactly what World Market meant by toffee caramel. Generally speaking, your basic combination of sugar and butter is either toffee…

Vosges Black Salt Caramel Bar

I picked up this Vosges Black Salt Caramel Bar at Cost Plus World Market, one of my favorite new candy sources. It contained “black Hawaiian sea salt, burnt sugar caramel”, and a 70% dark chocolate. Like their Blood Orange Caramel Bar, the caramel here was oozy and runny. It definitely made the bar messier, but…
