Eat with your Eyes: Orange Dark Chocolate Shells

I love foil wrapped chocolates. I love it even more when the wrapping is off and what’s underneath is still just as pretty.

Dark Chocolate Orange Shells

These orange flavored dark chocolate scallop shells were just that. Shiny and sweet and orangey.

Eat with your Eyes: Acorn filled with Squirrels

This foil-wrapped acorn was hollow in the back and held a little package of molded chocolate squirrels.

Eat with your Eyes: Choceur Choco & Biscuit

Another Aldi find from last year. They’re simple little chocolate covered biscuits.

Choco & Biscuit

The individual fingers are pretty generous and the milk chocolate was glossy and satisfying with a good dark note.

Eat with your Eyes: Hershey’s Foil Wrapped Milk Chocolate Eggs

The week after Valentine’s Day my attention is split between marked down holiday candies and all the new stuff for Easter. Here’s a tease of something on the shelves, foil wrapped eggs.

They’re really just football shaped Hershey’s Kisses. (Package photo here.)

Eat with your Eyes: Caffarel Milk Hearts

Anyone who has visited this blog regularly knows my fondness for Caffarel, the Italian chocolate maker that invented gianduia. What’s even more remarkable about them is that they don’t just make little nuggets of the stuff, they fashion it into beautiful morsels in clever shapes & wrappers to look at before you gobble them up.

Caffarel Latte Milk

While at the Fancy Food Show I was happy to see the Caffarel booth. Caffarel is devilishly hard to find in the United States, but if they’re planning to distribute directly, maybe things will improve - wider distribution and perhaps the prices will be a little better.

These were simple little milk chocolate hearts, barely larger in diameter than a penny, the chocolate is silky smooth, sweet and milky with a cool melt on the tongue. As far as I’m concerned, the script Caffarel on any candy says I Love You.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Did you get chocolate or candy from your sweetie?

Eat with your Eyes: Candy Coated Sour Hearts


I got these in a bulk bin at the mall candy shop because I thought they were pretty. I love the grape and banana-yellow ones - they taste nothing like nature. I haven’t actually eaten many of them, I have them in some unused spice bottles on my shelf. I suspect they’ll keep for 20 or 30 years that way.

Eat with your Eyes: Michael Mischer Single Origin Bars

Another example of something that I bought but never really ate. I loved the look of them, they’re about the size of playing cards and rather thin.

Michael Mischer Single Origin Chocolate Bars

The assortment was two different dark chocolate single origin bars and one milk chocolate one.

Michael Mischer Single Origin Chocolate Bars

What I loved about these was that I bought them right where they were made, at the Michael Mischer shop in Oakland, CA. So they were absolutely perfect, they hadn’t been shipped or knocked around by a stock boy. I didn’t eat them because I forgot I had them, not because they didn’t look good. I enjoyed everything I got there. I need to go back, buy some again and then actually write about it.

Eat with your Eyes: Marshmallow Cones

These are a fantastic idea. Miniature ice cream cones with a marshmallow candy topping.


Yeah, great idea but really not that good. They’re about three inches high and come individually wrapped in clear cellophane. I don’t know if it’s the packaging or the fact that a lot of egg white things smell kind of like wet dog to me, but they were icky.
