So it really is a mysterious saga – at least for this episode. Well, I dunno I figured mysterious and saga are good words to lure you into hearing a rather interesting story that will drag out over the next four episodes. So you can have anticipation and will come back. Will you come back? You know, if you don’t you will have a sense of incompleteness in your life. You really should come back next week. Come back next week.
Episode 68: The Mysterious Saga pt 1
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.
Kit – 3.5 out of 5.0
Hans 5.0 out of 5.0
Get some here
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.
Kit 0 out of 5.0 stars
Hans 1.5 out of 5.0 stars
‘My goodness, how rude’ said the person who doesn’t like the word fuck. But I don’t use it lightly. Jay Inslee, the governor of my state of Washington – who I voted for, just happily and in good conscious, handed down a really detrimental executive order which will cripple and destroy businesses, and really hamper a product that has gotten people to stop ingesting epic levels of carcinogens that have resulted in a total of over 1,000 deaths nationwide. Per day. He is banning flavors. Not of schnapps or vodka (like cotton candy), but of e-cigarettes/vape. The recent rash of people getting sick and almost ten as of this post dying is really crummy, I’ll give you that. But what’s more crummy is that by banning flavored ejuice, in effect, he’s taking a stand FOR big tobacco. What are all these kids he’s supposedly protecting from the evils of vaping that are already vaping to do? Well, there’s the traditional cigarette! They can steal them! Whee! Anyways, yeah – and we review chocolate in this episode as wll which is fun – some neat stuff. This isn’t going to be a regular thing or anything, but I needed to say something to the hundreds and millions of people who watch the show. The sheer size of the audience for The Chocolate Break is simply staggering! But in all reality, I think this was a seriously short sighted, knee-jerk reaction. For a guy who ran for president of the country on an environmental platform, I hope he’s going to pick up all the cigarette butts people are going to be dropping everywhere. Sad!
Fuck You, Jay Inslee & Chocolate Review
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.
A Tangled Honeycomb Of Roses & Dolomite
When fierce beauty and attention to detail collide, worlds crumble in this stunning new offering from The Chocolate Break – a new era in the way you think and feel about everything relating to anything you don’t regard as important or the concept of importance, itself.
Episode 59: Eat More Dolfin Every Day
Well we’re back with more varieties from our hoard that are about to expire. A lot of references to aliens and sci-fi in this one. So enjoy it.
Episode 54: More SoonTo 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!
In the beginning there was chocolate. Yea, the chocolate was lush and creamy; but the chocolate begat the jealousy of the masses. O dark lords of Lindt, what is your deal? Darkness and light collide as we delve into a vessel containing multiple flavors. Should say that there really are no dark lords of Lindt – they just haunt our dreams and bring forth snarls. Let’s begin.
THE DARK LORDS OF LINDT – Switzerland
We crack this box open and find 8 different varieties to try. Honestly, for something mass produced, this was on the whole very good. Some we liked better than others, but this box had lots of tasty stuff.

Mystery. Intrigue. Chocolate. Three bars, but what are they? I reached out to a handful of subscription box places to see if they’d be interested in sending samples for us to pore over and mysterychocolatebox.com was one who replied. I think at this point, we’re done with chocolate subscription boxes. What’s kind of tough is that the Japanese candy boxes had minimal chocolate in them, and what chocolate they had was just meh (not only that, I’ve emailed them numerous times and never get a reply – they just keep sending boxes). This box had chocolate, but we never find out who makes it, so it really didn’t jibe well for what we do. I’m hoping at some point a company will start pushing boxes of 5 or so bars for reviewing – that would work for us. Let us know.
Episode 47: The Mystery Chocolate Box
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.
