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.

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.)
