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.
Coco-Luxe Roark is dark chocolate with cocoa nibs.

I love candy.
That is all.

The Twix Triple Chocolate is three layers of different chocolate textures: a chocolate cookie, chocolate caramel covered in chocolate.

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

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.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
