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.
Kit – 3 out of 5 stars
Hans – 1 out of 5 stars
Zero – United States
It’s a large white bowel movement with a lot of nougat and gravel.
Hans – 0.25 out of 5 stars
Kit – 2 out of 5 stars
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.
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.
Hans – 5 out of 5 stars
Kit 2 out of 5 stars
Reese’s Mallow-Top Peanut Butter Cups – USA
We were both rather unhappy with this newcomer as it really didn’t taste as advertised.
Hans – 0 out of 5 stars
Kit – 0 out of 5 stars
Russell Stover Caramel Bunny – USA
You can hear the whispers of the dark overlords in the fray as we try this one. Goopy.
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.
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.
Pretend chocolate that isn’t really chocolate and something that just doesn’t work. What’s sad is that the not chocolate gets our nod of approval and the actual chocolate doesn’t. These are troubling times, but you can rest assured we will protect you, nurture you, and coddle your little snowflake souls when selecting a confection is just too difficult of a task for you. You’re welcome.
This episode is brought to you by the fact that attempting to improve on something that’s just fine already isn’t all that great a thing, where we are concerned. I mean, sometimes it works, but then they did the newer Star Wars movies and robbed us all of hours of our lives. At least there’s The Mandalorian now, but it seems almost criminal that Disney has anything to do with a sci-fi (oh wait – Star Wars isn’t science fiction, it’s a fantasy saga in a dead culture). Star Trek is infinity better than Star Wars.
Ticket Chocolates Grasshopper Pie – California, United States
Kit was a little worried about the inclusion of grasshoppers at the outset, but assured of their lack of inclusion set her at ease. Unfortunately, we found spearmint instead of peppermint here which disappointed.
This one. This one was rough. So there’s a microphone above us. It’s a Rode microphone. And it’s screwed up. It sucks. What can I do? At least there was the audio from the front camera. But right after the first review you’ll hear some scratchy sounds. That’s the above microphone. So yeah.
When fierce beauty and attention to detail collide, worlds crumble in this stunning new offering from The Chocolate Break – a new era in the way you think and feel about everything relating to anything you don’t regard as important or the concept of importance, itself.
