Episode 66: Whipping The Belgian Guy

So I realized a few minutes ago there wasn’t an episode readied for you today. For that, I apologize. So here’s one. If you don’t like it, tough crap – we’re professionals here. We don’t have the time to listen to the whining of you people.

Episode 66: Whipping The Belgian Guy

Episode 32: Nestle Smarties Reviews + Choco Lonely + Golden Alps

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.

Nestle Smarties – Canada

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.

Episode 28: Violet Crumble & CHOMP!

My wife has rabies I think because she’s been apt to bite lately. I have known for years that she might have feral tendencies, but in this episode, you will see how she does indeed bite if provoked. She is a wild animal – and I would not want her any other way.

Cadbury Chomp – United Kingdom

A flat, wide bowel movement – visually. Thin chocolate and a lot of caramel.

Episode 26: Nestle Yorkie Bar & Tony’s Choco Lonely Milk Chocolate Caramel + Sea Salt

A couple more found at the Cost Plus World Market – and the advent of Miles in our episodes! Watch and feel the magic!

Nestle Yorkie Raisin & Biscuit – United Kingdom

Bereft of Yorkshire Terrier to our sadness. We’re split on this one so you’ll have to give it a try.

Episode 16: Eton Mess Pudding Bar & Nestle Lion Bar

We went out for ramen and it was great. Then we waltzed over to a Cost Plus World Market and found that they had chocolate bars. $70 and a lot f guilt later, here we are. Going in, I think these are both British bars. Let’s get to it.

Montezuma’s Chocolates Eton Mess Pudding Bar – United Kingdom

Strawberry flavor was almost raisin like and meringue bits were much like Violet Crumble/honeycomb. Some bitterness there.

Episode 13: Aero Vanilla Truffle & Big Turk

Well, here we are. I haven’t done an update on this site since late January and it’s March. Hopefully I can crank a few of these out before Miriam wakes up.

These are yet two more varieties found up in Canada – I mean, who doesn’t like Canada? I think the Aero was from Walmart SuperCentre in Richmond, BC and the Big’R Turk from a little convenience store that had a guy with a medallion and a hairy chest on the way to the border. Let’s check ’em out.

Aero Truffle: Vanilla Truffle – Canada

Ladies and gentlemen, this made us wretch. Just like eating a stinky vanilla candle smells like. It hurt.

Nestle Big’R Turk – Canada

Turkish Delight is a really amazing and flavorful confection. Like a jelly covered in chocolate that has a lots of nice spiced flavor. Well, this one was like a knife in the eye of that concept. Take a Swedish Fish. Cover it in chocolate. Nothing wrong with chocolate covered Swedish Fish – I mean that’s great and all, but that is NOT what Turkish Delight is. Period!

Episode 8: Coffee Crisp & Aero Dark Cherry Truffle

‘What is this? What is this? Do you think I don’t know the law? Wasn’t it I who wrote it?’ Iconic lines from the character Auntie portrayed by Tina Turner in Max Max: Beyond Thunderdome. They have absolutely nothing to do with this episode, but a nice, light snack and a bubbly variety are here in this one-two punch from the great white north that is the sweet land of Canada.

Coffee Crisp – Canada

Growin up in Anacortes, Washington, Canadian television was easily found on the dial for Hans as a boy. Coffee Crisp commercials were constantly running, as well as commercials for cold and flu medications. It seems that Canadians must get the sniffles and yearn for something sweet most of the time.

Aero Dark Cherry Truffle – Canada

Aero is interesting. These products get their name from all the holes in them – like they’re full of milk that had some kid blowing bubbles into it with a straw and then cooled and hardened quickly.

Episode 4: Kit Kat Mint Creme & Cookie Smash & King Choc Nut

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’ –

A crispy wafer topped with a mint crème and cookie filling, covered in a rich, dark-chocolatey coating

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.
