Episode #97 – Malaysian Chocolate From Malaysia – Part II

Time for another episode based around varieties from Malaysia. Maybe it’s time to start pushing out episodes again. It may be… I mean, it is a fun thing to do; but the only problem is time. It’s hard to find it, just hanging out and waiting to be used. Our time is very minimal these days… Two children in school, breathing, sleeping, you know… We shall see. Maybe something for the holidays? Let’s begin.

 

Episode #96 – Malaysian Chocolate From Malaysia – Part I

This is the first of two episodes we recorded back in May. That being said, we’ve had a bit of a full plate of doings in recent months, but the wait is over and this and next Thursday, we have more chocolate for you to enjoy.

We visited Malaysia in 2014 and it was an absolutely amazing place. This chocolate come from a company called Maestro whose address is in Butterworth – an area we visited! We may have driven by them back then! Small world. Maestro asked about doing a collab and so here we are.

Episode #95: The Bubu Lubu Tree Of Hell

Welcome to another action-packed thing-that-we-do here. It’s pretty mind blowing how you just keep coming back for more – like lambs to the slaughter or a mouse to a cheese. But really, thank you – you’re the best fans we would never pay for. Paying for a fanbase is like buying friends, and we don’t approve of that form of desperation – even though it’s a common practice online these days. That’s kind of seedy, if you ask me. Bring on the constipation!

Episode #95: The Bubu Lubu Tree Of Hell

Bourbon Chocolatey Tree Stumps – Japan

Found this on a trip to a rarely visited Asian grocery a couple weeks ago. How bizarre. From the makers of tiny hamburgers come these Chocolatey Tree Stumps. What the hell is going on? I mean really – WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!

Bimbo Bubu Lubu – Mexico

A layer of chocolate with marshmallow inside and then some flavored gel kind of strawberry stuff. Kit was not pleased.

Episode #94: Carlos Rolo & The Zero

Oh man it’s Easter Sunday and I need to use the bathroom. On the other hand – wait, nothing on my hand to begin with, but today is a special day, but this episode will come out on Thursday and it was recorded the prior week and we’re all out of Easter chocolate, so this has nothing to do with Easter. Enjoy.

Episode #94: Carlos Rolo & The Zero

Rolo – United States

IDK but these are enrobed in chocolate. That’s my take on it. Covered? Dipped? No. Enrobed.

Zero – United States

It’s a large white bowel movement with a lot of nougat and gravel.

Carlos V – Mexico

I often converse with Stumpy from North Little Rock on my daily early morning walks via Bluetooth headset. Conversation often goes to his mahjong game which has a character named Carlos Rivera who asks quite often to receive containers and food items. We agreed however that his product tasted really bad.

Epidode #93: The Rabbit Or The Egg?

Yes. Another Easter episode. This time, we go straight for the throat with some weighty rabbits. On the topic of the lepus, we must take a moment to chastise all of you for stealing their eggs. Chickens are one thing – but rabbit eggs? We’re very disappointed. Don’t do that.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Rabbit – USA

A large Reese amalgam – peanut butter filled with chocolate. You know the drill.

Reese’s Mallow-Top Peanut Butter Cups – USA

We were both rather unhappy with this newcomer as it really didn’t taste as advertised.

Russell Stover Caramel Bunny – USA

You can hear the whispers of the dark overlords in the fray as we try this one. Goopy.

York Peppermint Bunny – USA

Knock it off. More doesn’t always equal better.

Episode #92: Easter Under Attack

Easter’s just around the corner and so while at the store yesterday, I picked up our absolute favorites. These are also your favorite varieties because we know you. We know you all too well. How? Don’t ask. You don’t have time because you’re telling everyone you know about our fantastic content. We appreciate it – sort of.

Episode #92: Easter Under Attack

Cadbury Mini Eggs – United States

These are the holy grail of delights for Kit when it comes to Easter chocolate. The thin shell and the chocolate are tops in her opinion.

Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Eggs – United States

First off, I meant to grab the variety which lays bare; sans pieces. The pieces are so maintaed in the peanut butter grease that it’s kind of just a little bit of broken glass in there. Regardless, they are quite satisfying. But not for Kit who loathes peanut butter.

Episode #91: Like The Legend Of The Creamy Bolus

After many months of meditating, it has come to our attention we completely forgot about all of you. Yes, we shirked our responsibility to the throngs of followers we have and decided to give a big ‘screw you’ to each and every one of you. But now, we’ve relented, and without apology, we resume our tasting and commenting on the various varieties of chocolate confections that you enjoy. These are trivial treats that make you feel as though life is worth living as you trudge through your days like a long walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night, drowsy and confused. With that, once again we bring you what you want.

Episode #91: Like The Legend Of The Creamy Bolus

Twix Cookies & Creme – United States

This one was a little confusing as it has an alright flavor, but it kind of left us feeling a little dirty. The creme also confused Hans as to whether it was caramel infused or not, however Kit was quick to point out the lack of caramel and corrected him accordingly.

Hans – 3 / 5 stars

Kit 3 / 5 stars

Kit Kat Duos Mocha+Chocolate – United States

We were both insensed and a bit disgusted with this one. The words we described these with were burnt and drudgery – Kit found the flavor a little burnt, and Hans found it not very enjoyable and kind of a chore in the chew department.

Episode #90: Udderly Lonely

This is the second episode we did in July of 2020 and didn’t get edited until December. Kinda late, I know. Plus, there aren’t any new ones done to edit. So this is it. Is The Chocolate Break dead? Will the phoenix rise from the ashes? Maybe. Maybe not. Enjoy. Actually – really enjoy this – the more enjoy, the better chance of more episodes.

Episode #90: Udderly Lonely

Tony’s Choco Lonely White Chocolate Raspberry – Belgium

Can’t even extoll how amazingly good this one way, despite all the weird label stuff. As it turns out, there actually is a big issue in Africa with human rights abuses when it comes to cacao harvesting. Jacked up – chocolate is supposed to make people happy. But this stuff certainly made us happy.

Pergale Milk Chocolate – Whole Hazelnut – Lithuania

Lithuanian chocolate bought at n Asian grocery. Not a big amount of wow here.
