Well, the title is apt insofar as Hans is concerned, but for Kit both ends of the stick point to bleah.
Episode 65: Brazil Yay! California Bleah…
Talento amendoas e passas – Brazil
While Hans found this one to the the ultimate, Kit wasn’t completely sold on it, but thought it was pretty good.

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.
A Tangled Honeycomb Of Roses & Dolomite
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.
Episode 59: Eat More Dolfin Every Day
We’ve found that unless you use the chocolate, it goes bad. Doing episodes once in a while just won’t cut it – nor will not looking at expiration dates on bars when we purchase them. These next two episodes are devoted to the chocolate that must be tried before it dies.
Episode 53: About To Expire!
Oh boy it’s the 4th of July! I’d rather a 5th of Beethoven though and the mix of these two would probably drown oneself if partaken with a 5th of hard liquor. unsafe and insane.
Episode 50: Ferrero Rochet & Crunchie
Oh stop it. We all get zits from time to time and yeah they range from tiny and no big deal to holy cow is that thing breathing/has it a control drone hovering above that has some kind of invisible control mechanism giving it intelligence. One of the items today seemed like a big zit – although very tasty. So yeah.
Episode 46: Toblerone, Skor, Ripple & Tiny Zits
Toblerone White Chocolate With Honey & Almond Nougat – Switzerland
Triangular prisms and white chocolate with funny stuff going on.

Hershey’s Skor – United States
Skor is a candy bar produced by The Hershey Company. It was first marketed in the United States in 1981 and later launched in Canada in 1983. “Skör” (with umlaut dots over the “o”) is Swedish for “brittle”, and the crown that appears in the product’s logo is identical to that found in the Swedish national emblem of Tre Kronor (“Three Crowns“). However, most read the name as “Skor” since you do not see the umlaut dots. Skor is the Swedish name for shoes. It was originally intended as the competition for the Heath bar produced by the Heath Company and, later, the Leaf Candy Company. Despite Hershey’s acquisition of Leaf, Inc., in 1996 and subsequent production of the Heath bar under the Hershey name, the company continues to market the Skor bar.

Thirty-four episodes is a lot of episodes. I mean, it isn’t a psychologically amazing number like say a 100 or anything with a zero after it, but it’s impressive. I know you agree because I mean hey – it’s the right thing to do.

Miles had been bugging us for a couple days. Not really bugging; he’s a really sweet little boy – he would come up to us and say ‘Chocolate Breaaaaaak??’ Well, tonight we decided to let him stay up and do some chocolate breakdancing.
Tony’s Choco Lonely 51% Dark Chocolate With Almonds – Belgium
Miles picked this one, but didn’t want to taste it. Kind of a bummer.

Your basic answer to the M&M by Nestle. They’re a little different – thicker shells mainly. Miles wouldn’t try these either although he likes them. He’s trying to vex us.
