Eat with your Eyes: Aldi Dominos
My mother sent me these Milk Chocolate Domino Cubes from Aldi before the holidays.
The package says: Gingerbread cookies with apple jelly and persipan coated with milk chocolate. I didn’t know what persipan was, but when I tasted it, it was a lot like marzipan. I looked it up and it pretty much is marzipan except it’s made with apricot kernels instead of almonds. Ultimately I wasn’t sure if these were candy or petit fours. I preferred the dark chocolate ones, the milk version (which photographed better) were very sweet and the gingerbread cake part just wasn’t spicy enough for me.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
