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!

Madre Chocolate Horchata – United States (Hawaii)
Dairy free bar with horchata flavor. Leaps and bounds closer to horchata than the last one we tried.
Kit – 4 out of 5
Hans – 3 out of 5
By this point, we’re finding that the more things we try, the more we absolutely hate. I mean, why haven’t heads rolled and production stopped on some of these? Beyond us. We have a Canadian variety and a Seattle area one today.
Kit Kat Tiramisu – Canada
Upon opening, we are greeted with a ‘funk’ wafting from the package. We both have an affinity as to listening to funk, however scented funk isn’t much to our liking. Neat presentation though.

Kit – 1 1/2 stars
Hans – 2 1/2 stars
jcoco Edamame & Sea Salt in Milk Chocolate – Seattle, Washington USA
Well, talk about something absolutely horrible. This was just so bad. So bad that Hans actually spat it out into a napkin. Back in the day, he was able to escape to a bathroom after overdrinking, vomit into the bowl and then recover almost immediately to grab another beer and continue schmoozing. This eclipsed that ability. Like chocolate covered hay.

In our second episode aired on August 3rd, 2018, we announce our intention to make this a regular program and try our first pair of found chocolate. We start to learn the flavors we both like – and dislike.
We oft times journey northward to the magical land of Tim Hortons and maple syrup – Canada. You’ll be seeing a lot of Canadian chocolate as the series progresses. The Mars bar is one of them.

Ghiradelli 86% Cacao
Kit is from the Bay Area and during our courtship, one place we visited was a big Ghiradelli store. It was pretty epic and they had these tornado or hurricane milkshakes where you could get a square of their chocolate blended into it. Was pretty amazing stuff. This is a dark chocolate bar.
