Episode #95: The Bubu Lubu Tree Of Hell

Welcome to another action-packed thing-that-we-do here. It’s pretty mind blowing how you just keep coming back for more – like lambs to the slaughter or a mouse to a cheese. But really, thank you – you’re the best fans we would never pay for. Paying for a fanbase is like buying friends, and we don’t approve of that form of desperation – even though it’s a common practice online these days. That’s kind of seedy, if you ask me. Bring on the constipation!

Episode #95: The Bubu Lubu Tree Of Hell

Bourbon Chocolatey Tree Stumps – Japan

Found this on a trip to a rarely visited Asian grocery a couple weeks ago. How bizarre. From the makers of tiny hamburgers come these Chocolatey Tree Stumps. What the hell is going on? I mean really – WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!

Bimbo Bubu Lubu – Mexico

A layer of chocolate with marshmallow inside and then some flavored gel kind of strawberry stuff. Kit was not pleased.

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 1: BETA5 Chocolate - Canada

This is our first episode of The Chocolate Break and where we got the idea to do the show. A lot of things have changed since this one, and hopefully you enjoy seeing this one.

BETA5 is a chocolate company in Vancouver, BC. The original reason we visited them was after I saw an article about them having an instant noodle infused chocolate bar, I had contacted them and they offered me a free bar if we came up and snagged it.

They also had an interesting sampler Kit noticed. Little multicolored fascinations with what looked like hand painted imagery on them. Flavors like earl gray and mango and combinations I’d never heard of before.

You might think ‘you really traveled over two hours for chocolate?’ Yep! Actually, we like going to Canada often for many reasins. First, it’s a nice change of pace. Then there’s the fact that Richmond BC has a big Asian population, which means more Asian stores which means more instant noodles to find to review on The Ramen Rater website. Plus there’s a Walmart there with all sorts of neat stuff and you can’t beat the exchange rate and the parking lot where we’ve seen Tesla, Ferrari, and even a Bugatti. Definitely a change from the ones in the states.

So check out these neat varieties from BETA5! Welcome to The Chocolate Break!
