Eat with your Eyes: Apollo Strawberry

Meiji Apollo

Little Meiji Apollo chocolates are little mountains with a base of milk chocolate and a snowcap of strawberry flavored white confection. They’re cute, like the tops of an edible crayon.

Eat with your Eyes: Weihnachtskofekt

Niederegger Marzipan Weihnachtskofekt

I missed reviewing this array of Niederegger Marzipan Weihnachtskofekt, special marzipan disks with seasonal flavors: Ingwer, Dattel-Honig & Arabisch-Mocca before Christmas. Suffice to say that they were fresh, nutty and delicious.

Eat with your Eyes: Skittles

I picked up these Skittles in Germany. They might not have the wide variety of flavors we have in the States (though they can get the imports), European Skittles come in boxes.

Skittles Fruits (Germany)

Also, the purple Skittles are blackcurrant flavored, not grape. See my previous review of UK Skittles.

Eat with Your Eyes: Brandy Beans

Trader Joe's Brandy Beans

I reviewed the manufacturer branded version of these a few years ago. Doulton Liqueur Chocolates (Cointreau & Teacher’s). Basically, they’re a good deal for three dollars. The quality of the candy is decent enough for Trader Joe’s but the packaging isn’t anything approaching exquisite. Caution: you can get a little buzz from them.

Eat with your Eyes: Merry Mingle

Trader Joe's Merry Mingle

Just a little preview of a new Trader Joe’s holiday candy. I picked up a few of their new item last week and will do a review of all the returning items as well before Thanksgiving.

Merry Mingle is like a dark chocolate pecan turtle with a few dried cranberries thrown in.

Eat with your Eyes: Choceur

Choceur Chocolate Bars

Aldi sells absurdly inexpensive Germany chocolate. Here’s a tease of an upcoming review for their mini chocolate bars. They’re called Choceur Fine Chocolate and are 1.4 ounces each in packages of 5. The perfect single serving of chocolate.

Eat with your Eyes: Chocolate Knife

Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife

I saw these little candies making the rounds as a meme, but I didn’t see them in person until I went to Germany.

It’s a Swiss hazelnut chocolate confection shaped into a pocket knife and wrapped in red foil to look like a Swiss Army Knife.

Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife

The Mindestens Swiss Chocolate Knife is a pretty simple little candy. The center is soft gianduia (chocolate hazelnut paste) and covered with milk chocolate. It’s sweet and soft, nothing spectacular, as I’ve had much better gianduia before. But it’s hard to quibble with the design, as both the foil and the molding of the chocolate is so attentive to details. Seek them out if you have a Swiss Army Knife fan in the family.
