I love opening a candy wrapper and finding a picture perfect bar inside.

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.)

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.)
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.

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.

Aldi sells charming chocolates at ridiculously affordable prices. My mother sent me this box of Milk Chocolate Fine Truffles. I reviewed the dark version last year.
These come in a blue hexagonal box (photo here).

Before Tart n Tiny were discontinued I had a whole box of them and dumped them out so I could play with them.

Sometimes I buy nice things and eat them. These are BonBonBar nougats.

Goumas is an Ohio candymaker. They create local favorites like Buckeyes as well as classics like caramels and toffees made with fresh nuts.
The mint meltaways, even though they’d traveled all the way across the country were glossy and pristine.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
