Peanut Hottie

Howdy! I’m Patty, a professor of Psychological Sciences at a small college in the midwest. Some important background information: I’m absolutely obsessed with peanut butter. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t keep any sort of nut butter in the house, or I’ll enter into a nut-butter-induced-fugue-state…within a few hours, the nut butter will…

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen

This is the second bag of Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. They caught my eye because I’ve never seen them in the U.S., and they had a giant Neu sticker on it, which made me think that they were, well, New. Google translate tells me that Bärchen-Pärchen means Bear Couple. Doesn’t have quite…

Haribo Orangina P!k

Today and Friday, I’ll review some Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. First up is Orangina P!k. I know Orangina is a fizzy orange drink that’s available in Europe. No idea what the P!k means (and why it’s not a Pik). At any rate, it’s pretty clear that these are supposed to be…

Alcove Chocolates – Brownie

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. Alas, the overnight shipping, cold pack, and insulated bag couldn’t stand up to the North Carolina heat, so my sample arrived melted and not as photogenic…

Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons

These British Cadbury Dairy Milk Buttons were a surprise international treat in the free sample MunchPak that I received a while ago and am still slowly munching my way through. The buttons were little thumbnail-sized disks with a flat side and a domed side. Their flat side had the scripted Cadbury logo imprinted on it….
