Eat with your Eyes: Coco-Luxe Cocoa Nib Bars

More stuff I’ve photographed and eaten but never written up as a full review. Here’s an array of bars from the small confectioner called Coco-Luxe. They’re rather different from mainstream fare and all happen to contain cocoa nibs.

Coco-Luxe Monkeyin’ Around bar is milk chocolate with banana chips, cocoa nibs and alfa sea salt.

Coco-Luxe Spumoni bar is white chocolate with dried cherries, pistachios and cocoa nibs.

Eat with your Eyes: KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter

Every once in a while I buy something to review, not realizing that I’ve covered it on the blog already. I bought this KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter last year before I was on Good Food to talk about KitKats around the world. (Package image here.)

KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter

It was really good. The peanut butter flavor is much more earthy and grassy than the peanut butter candies here in the US.

Eat with your Eyes: Snickers Xtreme

When I take pictures I usually shoot 5-10 products in one session. So at the end of the session I’m usually left with a dish of bitten or broken pieces of candy. Here’s what a photo session remains for the Limited Edition Snickers Xtreme looked like. (Original review here.)

Eat with your Eyes: The Most Awesome Chocolate Bar Ever

It’s hard to take a candy bar called The Most Awesome Chocolate Bar Ever seriously. But then again, why does a bar have to be serious? (See a photo of the package here.)

Lille Belle Farms Presents: The Most Awesome Chocolate Bar EVER!

I ate two of these and would probably buy more if I could get a hold of them. The dark chocolate is dreamy smooth but the filling is really, actually awesome. The feuilletine wafers are crispy and toasty and mixed into a melty nougatine with soft cocoa flavors.

Eat with your Eyes: Foil Wrapping

This is an assortment of Michel Cluizel chocolates I picked up at Fog City News in San Francisco a couple of years ago. What a great way to sample so many different flavors.
