Eat with your Eyes: Cadbury Mini Eggs

Drug stores are clever, they put huge bins of tasty candy on sale and right next to the line at the registers. I couldn’t resist picking up a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs.

Eat with your Eyes: Christopher Elbow

When I’m in San Francisco I like to stop at Christopher Elbow Chocolates for a few pieces and some hot chocolate. (It’s always cold enough for hot chocolate in San Francisco.)

Previous review of chocolate bar and my first encounter with Christopher Elbow pieces.

Eat with your Eyes: Candy Logs

A building kit made from compressed dextrose. The little jar was kind of like a Play-Doh tub but held actual non-toxic toys you can eat.

Candy Logs

They were very dense, crunchy and kind of hard to bite. But left sitting out they did really well. Yellow was banana, like the old Wacky Packs. The top of the little package was a roof that can go on top of the little house.

Eat with your Eyes: Richart

I don’t remember what flavors these Richart Petits were, but they were cute as buttons.

Eat with your Eyes: Cucu

If there’s a kind of candy that I buy and rarely review, it’s Japanese products. Here’s one of them, it’s called Cucu, it’s a milky hard candy flavored with green tea, and then filled with a little pocket of matcha (green tea powder).


The pieces were just too cute, little cubes, about the size of a hazelnut in the shell but with flat sides. Here’s what the package looked like

Eat with your Eyes: Jersey Milk

As Canada is hosting the Winter Olympics, my thoughts have turned to all the wonderful Canadian candies the athletes and spectators must have access to. Canada has great candy, a wonderful mix of American, British and French confectionery traditions along with their own innovations.

Jersey Milk

Neilson’s Jersey Milk is one of those uniquely Canadian chocolate bars. Here’s a fun peek at a display of them from the 70s at a store.

I photographed this bar and had a bite of it, but several days later before I got a chance to eat it, it got melted. Makes me jealous of Canada and how they don’t have that problem as often as us Southern Californians do.

Eat with your Eyes: Chiroru Goen Ga Aruyo Chocolate

Winter holidays mean chocolate money. As a kid I think I was more fascinated with the chocolate coins and the foil impressions than the chocolate itself. (This isn’t surprising as most chocolate coins are just terrible.) I found a cute alternative to the gold foil stuff in the little mesh bags. This Japanese version comes packaged in little plastic sleeves, not foil though. But still, the result out of the wrapper is impressive.

Chocolate Coins

Sadly the product itself, made by Tirol, is mockolate. Pretty to look at, but not terribly tasty. Package photo if you wanted to try to find these.

Eat with your Eyes: Hiding Eggs

Easter Candy season is upon us. I’ve spent the past week or so visiting all the drug stores and discounters to see what’s new. (Photos here.)

Atkinson Sugar Singularities

Hiding Eggs are those huge marshmallow candies like jelly beans but with a fluffed and grainy center. I don’t like eating them, but they’re definitely pretty.
