Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Caramallows

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Caramallows

I bought this box of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Caramallows last week. I was super excited to think that I’d caught a new product that resembled my beloved See’s Scotchmallows, but it turns out that they were around last year as well. The long, skinny box described them as “pillowy marshmallow bites with a layer…

Sarris Candies S’mores

While I was in Pittsburgh for a conference, my former labmate and awesome Pittsburgh host took me to one of the best grocery stores ever: the Giant Eagle flagship. It was at least as good, if not better, than the flagship Wegmans in Pittsford, largely due to its incredible candy selection. I picked up a…

Truffles by Coquette – Classic

Truffles by Coquette is a new online chocolate boutique/small business.¬†They sent me a free box of their classic truffles for review. The truffles came in a classy looking box with a gilded Coquette logo in the center. Inside were 12 spherical truffles, 4 each of the Colette, Annie, and Katherine. Colette was described as “traditional…

Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites

I bought this bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bites at the dollar store because they had a big “New” banner. I don’t think there are other mass-market “milk chocolate covered miniature marshmallows” out there. Opening the stand-up, resealable bag unleashed a strong and sweet milk chocolate scent that reminded me of a milk chocolate Hershey’s…

Russell Stover S’More(s)

This Russell Stover S’More was yet another free sample snagged at Sweets and Snacks (get used to that opening line, folks. I got enough candy stashed from the Expo to wait out the zombie apocalypse). S’mores was a weirdly big thing at the Expo. This was the only fully assembled s’more that I saw, but…

Fudgie Wudgie Rocky Road Fudge

Though I love candy of nearly all forms, I actually don’t like fudge. I find it to be far too sweet. Chocolate is great as it is; why turn it into a super-saturated sugar bomb? Thus, when online candy retailer CandyFavorites.com sent me a free box of Fudgie Wudgie Rocky Road Fudge to review, I…

Guest Post: Katja Choco Beertjes

Unfortunately, I came down with a nasty cold/fever right after I got back from Sweets and Snacks, so I’m in no shape to delve into my new candy stash. Fortunately, Neil had written up the below guest post, so you still get a candy review today! ~Rosa Katja Choco Beertjes came into my life as…

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Rocky Road Squares

When I was checking out, my Trader Joe’s cashier commented on this tub of their Dark Chocolate Rocky Road Squares. She said it was one of her favorites. The tub contained 9.5 ounces of square tiles of dark chocolate studded “with marshmallows and peanuts.” The squares were irregularly sized, with some more rectangular than square….
