Eat with Your Eyes: Moser Roth Truffles

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.

Eat with your Eyes: Point of View

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

Eat with your Eyes: Goumas

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.

Eat with your Eyes: Sour Giant Gummi Bears

It’s a dream of some folks to have giant versions of their favorites. I found these Sour Super Gummi Bears. They’re about twice the height of a regular gummi bear, as you can see, pretty huge. (More flat though than three dimensional like other gummis.)

Sour Super Gummi Bears

I bought these online last month but when they arrived I was a little disappointed and decided not to review them. They’re not bad, but there are three versions - cherry-orange, cherry-pineapple and lemon-lime. The fact that I don’t like cherry much makes 2/3 of them unappealing to me.

Eat with your Eyes: Klik Double Crunch

You can consider this a mini-review of the Klik Double Crunch bar from Israel. It’s a milk chocolate coated cereal bar with nougat and almonds. (Package photo here.)

Klik Double Crunch

What it felt like to me was a mass of loosely packed crunchy cereal spheres lightly coated with a nougatine/cream and then covered with milk chocolate.

The effect is that the crunch has powerful grain taste to it, but it’s not overly sweet. It’s a little nutty, more on the hazelnut side of things than almond. It’s quite light ... the bar looks huge but is really only 1.42 ounces and 210 calories. I’d definitely buy it again. I picked mine up at Munchies, a Kosher candy shop on Pico Blvd.
