Eat with your Eyes: Quax is Back

Yes, he actually floats. It’s hard to buy more glee for a dollar, you don’t actually have to eat him to enjoy him. (See last year’s review.)

Eat with your Eyes: Groder

Groder Giandiua & Chestnuts

I picked up these foil wrapped treats in San Francisco as an alternative to Caffarel. Not quite as good but still charming and tasty.

Eat with your Eyes: 100% Honey

100% Honey

I’ve picked up these 100% Honey drops a couple of times now at the Japanese market. They’re beautiful and quite tasty. It’s a hard candy made of boiled honey, pretty simple. The flavor is deep and malty, much darker tasting than liquid honey. The price is usually quite right, around $3.00, which in the realm of cough drops is pretty reasonable. (Honey is supposed to be a very effective and all natural cough treatment.) Picture of the package here.

Eat with your Eyes: Hazelnut Vegan Bites

Last weekend I went to ExpoWest, which is a natural products trade show held in Anaheim. There are about 30 choccolate or candy companies that display there so I try to stop by for a few hours during the show to check out the new treats. This year I saw that Sjaak’s, the California-based chocolatier that’s Fair Trade, Organic and often Vegan had some new items.

Sjaak's Fair Trade Hazelnut Vegan Bites

These little floral shaped bites are Hazelnut. Amazingly they’re also vegan - so no dairy products in there even though it’s “milky.” The chocolate is smooth, the hazelnut flavors are pretty bold. (I think a darker chocolate option would be fun, too.)

Eat with your Eyes: Easter Dots

Most Easter candies are pale pastels and muted colors. The new Easter Dots are just the opposite - incredibly bright little knobs of flavored jelly.

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.
