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.

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.

Episode #61: Chocolove & Lindthate

What a week! I’ve had to spend almost all my time editing video for upcoming top ten lists on The Ramen Rater – I haven’t done a review since last Wednesday! I forgot today was Thursday! I edited this one in about 30 minutes! Bang energy drinks are great!

Episode #61: Chocolove & Lindthate

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 53: About To Expire!

Episode 43: The Old People’s Selection

Oh wow rad – so in the previous episode, I was whining and moaning about how much I wanted to try these. Well, basically I broke Kit down after the past evening’s horror of last weeks samplings and we got to enjoy these. These are some products that really have withstood the test of time and with good reason, although we had different opinions on some.

Episode 41: Ecuador, Fresno, & Dubai

Hey how are you today? No? Oh, that’s too bad. Well, here’s some special neato things from the 2018 Northwest Chocolate Festival that should make you die a little more.

Ecuador, Fresno, & Dubai

Episode 34: Seattle Chocolate Valentine’s Day Trifecta

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.

Seattle Chocolate We Work Together Like Nuts & Bolt – United States

Episode 29: Russell Stover Gift Box

During Christmas, candy and chocolate and treats and such fly this way and that. We got one of these and decided it was time to give one of these boxes a try – giving it The Chocolate Break treatment. Join us as we open the box and taste it’s sweet insides.

Russell Stover All Milk Gift Box – United States

In so many ways, this is our downfall. We migh have enjoyed this at the beginning of our journey of sampling and reviewing, but at this point, we don’t. We found almost every single offering here to be foul and far, far below par. It’s really sad. By looking for excellence, we get to enjoy less. But this we do for you.
