Eat with your Eyes: Kakosi Nibbles

Kakosi Nibbles

There are so many things to love about this. Let’s start with the package. The tin is adorable and most of all, function. The top slides open a little or a lot to dispense chocolate covered cacao nibs.

So it’s a tin of nibs? What’s so special about that these days? These are single origin criollo nibs from the Ocumare Valley (my favorite).

I picked up this sample earlier this year at ExpoWest (a natural products show). Now they just need to get them in stores.

Eat with your Eyes: Bottlecaps


Bottlecaps are underrated. Just look at them, soda pop flavored pressed dextrose candies shaped like bottle caps! What would be more fun or better for sharing?

Cherry, Cola, Grape, Root Beer and Orange. (In an ideal world there would also be a Squirt version, but I guess others will complain that Dr. Pepper & Sprite are missing.)

Eat with your Eyes: Tiger’s Eye

Black Sugar & Vinegar

I liked these Black Sugar hard candies from Japan because they were so nicely made. They had a deep color of amber and a striated crystal, almost like Tiger’s Eye. The taste was a little weird though, they were a combination of Black Sugar (like molasses) and vinegar. Probably good for a sore throat, but a little too savory for me.

Buckeye State & Hitting the Road


I’m headed off to the Buckeye State, which has always proved to be a rich source of candy for me. Above is a photo of Harry London Buckeyes, an Ohio specialty.

My plans of interest to Candy Blog readers are: Aldi, the Spangler Factory and Albanese Confectionery Factory Store ... perhaps some Fanny May when I get to Chicago on the second portion of the trip. Plus whatever else I see along the way.

So while I’m off doing that, I’m just going to post new reviews on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Don’t worry, they’ll still be something every day, including Eat with Your Eyes and other special treats. Of course if I run across something extraordinary I’ll be tweeting.

Eat with your Eyes: Amella Passion Fruit

Amella Passion Fruit CAramels

When I take my long walks early in the morning with the dog, I often see Passion Vines (photo of flowers). The variety here in Southern California is mostly ornamental, the fruits are edible but not as good as the true passion fruits grown for consumption.

These are Passion Fruit Caramels made with cocoa butter and covered in chocolate from Amella.

Eat with your Eyes: Hedonist

Hedonist Chocolates

With a name like Hedonist Chocolates I expected decadence. Yeah, it was that.

This was from the tea collection.
