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 #78: Unicorns & Darkness
A little gift box. I love livin so close to Canada – especially during the holidays. Walmart and T&T markets up there have a myriad of fascinating things on the cheap to test drive. This box was $5 and seemed like a good bet. Well, let’s see…
KitKat Senses – For Her Displeasure
By this point, we’re finding that the more things we try, the more we absolutely hate. I mean, why haven’t heads rolled and production stopped on some of these? Beyond us. We have a Canadian variety and a Seattle area one today.
Kit Kat Tiramisu – Canada
Upon opening, we are greeted with a ‘funk’ wafting from the package. We both have an affinity as to listening to funk, however scented funk isn’t much to our liking. Neat presentation though.

jcoco Edamame & Sea Salt in Milk Chocolate – Seattle, Washington USA
Well, talk about something absolutely horrible. This was just so bad. So bad that Hans actually spat it out into a napkin. Back in the day, he was able to escape to a bathroom after overdrinking, vomit into the bowl and then recover almost immediately to grab another beer and continue schmoozing. This eclipsed that ability. Like chocolate covered hay.

Today’s picks were both found in Canada. A couple of places we like to visit are the Walmart in Richmond, BC which is to say the least, much different than any Walmart we’ve been to here in the states. What’s different is most notable in the parking lot. Lots of Teslas first off. We’ve even seen Ferraris and once a Bugatti. Another is T&T Supermarket which are an Asian chain of store exclusive to Canada. The Choc Nut came from there. IT was a new location in Lansdowne Centre and it was ultra busy.
Kit Kat Mint Creme & Cookie Smash – Canada
We’ve not seen these larger format Kit Kat bars in the United States before, but there’s a whole slew of them up in Canada in numerous styles and flavors. Looking at the website for this product, we see this info in the ‘features and benefits’ –

King Choc Nut – Philippines
Hans saw this one and was going to pick it up, then walked away. After looking around the T&T Supermarket a bit, it was like a worm in his head and had to revisit it once again and ended up getting it for review. It felt like a single, enormous bar, however it turned out to be multiple little bars.
