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.

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 25: Storck Merci European Chocolate Sampler

Here’s one you’ve perhaps seen an advert for. Found these up in Canada but they’re easily found in the United States. I’ve always wondered about them and now we try them all.

Storck Merci European Chocolate Sampler – Germany

Our general consensus was that this was an almost alright kind of batch of varieties – give this to a servant, not someone you truly love. Although we did give the left over chocolate to my mother and she really enjoyed them so others will enjoy them. And I love my mother.

Lots of scores – just watch the video.

Episode 23: Bakery Nouveau & Madre Horchata Bar

Another round from the Northwest Chocolate Festival! Sooner or later I think you’ll be seeing a whole slew of varieties from this event – the companies were very kind and gave us so many samples. Not only that, they’re really good! Let’s check out two more!

Bakery Nouveau -United States

We want to be best friends with the guy who gave us these. Seriously. Both varieties we sampled were top notch and just extraodinary!

Macy’s FRANGOS – All Of Them! The Chocolate Break EXTRA!!

We took a trip to Seattle – parked at the Pacific Science Center, walked through the Seattle Center and saw lots of neat Christmassy things and then rode the Monorail downtown and ended up at Macy’s. There we got to do pictures with Santa (by the way this is the real Santa Claus – all others are complete fakers) and hit the Frango gift shop. Here is our special escapade through the FRANGO phenomenon – a ton of flavors to enjoy!

I could list all the flavors and scores here, but I’m lazy and actually the video is much more fascinating. So watch the video and get yourself some of these next time the holidays roll around! With the way that old style departments stores have gone these days, it might not be a tradition that lasts too much longer, sadly.

Episode 22: Le Chatelaine Chocolat

We visited the Northwest Chocolate Festival and found a lot o neat items there. One company, Le Chatelaine (based in Montana from France) had a myriad of fascinations to try – they were kind enough to give us a few to sample. Let’s have a look!

Everything was absolutely extraordinary. These people care about their chocolate; it’s not mass produced – it’s cradled from inception to production. Our palates are better for trying all these 5 star beauties!

Episode 21: Reese Pieces Cups & Speculoos

Paste like substances steal the show in this sugary mess with chocolate as a kind of aftertaste or afterthought. Enthuse yourselves with our gall and sheer love for bringing you the finest entertainment.

Cost Plus, Inc. Milk Chocolate With Speculoos Filling – United States

A checkerboard with an odd initial scent. Speculoos cookies are made into a paste; almost like peanut butter or cookie dough.

Reese Big Cup Stuffed With Reese Pieces – Canada

Okay so in Canada, it’s not Reese’s it’s Reese. These are big cups with Reese pieces inside as well as peanut butter. It’s a double slam of sugar.
