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.

Episode #86 – Easter Encounters Of The Third Kind

Episode #86 - Easter Encounters Of The Third Kind

My God – my throat is so sore. I mean, dude. It’s unbearable. It started with seasonal allergies, now it’s just like I gargled with broken glass. Like the punching bag in my throat turned into a swollen ham sandwich covered in marshmallows.

But enough about me – you people don’t care. I know you don’t. You’re all sheltering in place, watching your Netflix, complaining about shrimp ramen. But here we’ve brought all the beauty of this world under one banner of chocolate. This is the third Easter show we’ve done this year. That’s a lot of Easter chocolate. So sit back, enjoy, and stay safe, because we’re all in this together. Actually, the walls are closing in and you’re alone. So join us.

Episode 85: Social Distancing & The Thin Shelled Chocolate Ovum Of The Domestic Hare

Good morning. It has come to my attention that COVID-19 (hereafter referred to as Space Rabies) is a new phenomenon sweeping the nation, and even further, the globe. It is such a popular topic of conversation – it’s like the Beatles was in the 60s! Two things are certain in these uncertain times. First, McDonald’s will continue to supply you with amazing and diverse menu items for your locale at an economic price. The other is that The Chocolate Break will remain a guiding light in your life; a recovery method in your daily regime of not touching your face. We are, and will be, here for you. So sit back, relax, watch this (and all episodes of this program), and then treat yourself to a John Waters marathon by watching Desperate Living, Pink Flamingoes, and Polyester. It will make you extra weird to combat the disease of the new era.

STAY SAFE – STAY WEIRD.
