Eat with your Eyes: Jelly Belly Malted Milk Eggs

DSC_8499rb

I got a sample bag of Jelly Belly Malted Milk Pastel Eggs last month and promptly ate them after taking their picture.

I’ve reviewed the Jelly Belly Easter mix before, so this isn’t a re-review. I do have to note, though, that the crunchy coating was lightly flavored. So it seemed like the green ones were lightly lime and the pink ones were lightly berry. Odd ... I don’t really need an extra flavor, though it didn’t stop me from eating them.

I’m posting this mostly because Brach’s Fiesta Eggs are back on shelves and changed once again. Brach’s has gone through many owners in the past 10 years, and the recipes for many of their iconic candies have changed multiple times. I haven’t found the 2015 variety, but I can attest that the 2014 variety was far too big for the mouth and the shell far too hard for cracking easily to bite.

Jelly Belly are far more expensive than the Brach’s version, but at the very least they use a good quality chocolate and I do enjoy the malted center very much.

Eat with Your Eyes: Pernigotti

DSC_8130rb

There’s more to hazelnuts and chocolate than Nutella. There are quite a few makers of gianduia, the paste made from combining chocolate and ground hazelnuts, in Italy. Pernigotti is one of the finest, creating lovely little foil wrapped treats since 1860.

You can read some previous reviews of their product line here.

Candyology 101 - Podcast Episode 6 -  The Winter Fancy Food Show

Candyology-Episode-6

Last week I went to the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. Most times I present tasting notes from each day of the show, but this year I’ve got a podcast that does it all!

Join me with Maria as we explore the new flavor trends and product introductions:

You can download the MP3 here and of course check out the extensive show notes that have links to many of the products mentioned.

Here’s the full set of photos I’ve posted. You can also read my previous Fancy Food Show notes going back to 2007 here, kind of interesting to see how packaging has changed for some companies and how other heralded flavor trends did not catch on.

Happy Thanksgiving

SweetWorks Milk Chocolate Turkey

The best turkey to serve a vegetarian is not a texturized vegetable protein one ... it’s a chocolate turkey!

I hope you’re having a sweet holiday.
