Episode #78: Unicorns & Darkness

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.

Episode #77: m&m’s Macadamia Meh

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.

Episode 65: Brazil Yay! California Bleah…

Well, the title is apt insofar as Hans is concerned, but for Kit both ends of the stick point to 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.

Episode 62: A Tangled Honeycomb Of Roses & Dolomite

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.

Episode 59: Eat More Dolfin Every Day

Episode 52: About To Expire!

Episode 53: About To Expire!

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 46: Toblerone, Skor, Ripple & Tiny Zits

Episode 46: Toblerone, Skor, Ripple & Tiny Zits

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.

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.
