August 5, 2010 / 0 comments

As regular readers are probably aware by now, I’m on a simple quest to try and find the best spicy chocolates I can find. Dark, milk, whatever, as long as it’s gots some of dat heat!

B.T. McElrath Chile Limón Chocolate

February 22, 2010 / 0 comments

The more chocolates we try, the more I seem to think that the further north (colder) they come from, the better the chocolate. Case in point: B.T. McElrath’s Chile Limón bar, from Minnesota. This is a chocolate bar that wants to be a truffle. In terms of our rigid criteria in meeting awesomeness, this one…

Dolfin Chocolat Au Lait Au Hot Masala

Dolfin is a fantabulous Belgian chocolate maker. They have a number of interesting sounding chocolates, so on a recent trip to NYC we picked a couple up to try. Two words made this an easy pick: hot masala.

Nestlé 100 Grand

January 1, 2009 / 0 comments

With the onset of a New Year, I thought I’d take it upon myself to make a resolution to not be so freakin’ high-falutin’ with our reviews, or at least in selecting the chocolates we end up good/bad-mouthing here. Bearing this in mind, here’s probably my all-time favorite chocolate candy bar: the humble 100 Grand…

E. Wedel milk chocolate

October 12, 2008 / 1 comment

Just how I remember this: milky, rich chocolate. 30% cocoa, 15% milk solids, here’s a nice milk chocolate bar. It’s not as rich as some other Cadbury milk chocolates that tend to linger in your mouth and give a bit more texture and flavor (clearly, we are influenced by a sincere favoristism for Flake bars)….

Mo’s Bacon Bar

March 21, 2008 / 0 comments

Yeah yeah, I know, we have a review of this bar already. It’s just that after focusing several fruity chocolate bars, my thoughts turn to meat. And this is such a great chocolate. What really triggered this? It was the seeds from the freeze dried raspberries of a Chocolove bar that got me hankering for…

3400 Phinney Coconut Curry Milk Chocolate

February 28, 2008 / 0 comments

We’re not sure where we found this, this interesting chocolate from Seattle. Nope, we remember: thanks to Theo Chocolates (see post on Aphrodisiac chocolates). Tumeric, cumin, mustard and curry (“you know, because of the curry…”) embedded into milk chocolate and coconut so intensely, the coconut lingers (in your mouth, in your teeth, against the mini…

As Lake Champlain Chocolates puts it, “let chocolate change your world,” and their organic bars are an excellent starting point for your chocolate travels. With a subtle touch of crunchy almonds, the gray sea salt adds just the right amount of savoriness to a creamy smooth milk chocolate bar. The label says 38% cocoa content,…

Vosges – Mo’s Bacon Bar

December 31, 2007 / 0 comments

One of my current all-time favorites. 4 yr. old: “I really like this one because I like bacon bacon bacon!” A balance of applewood smoked bacon and deep milk chocolate – this is a unique taste experience. Just a touch of salt that complements the dark chocolate, which is smooth, semi-sweet and does not overpower…

Perugina – Premium Milk Chocolate Cappuccino

December 31, 2007 / 0 comments

This is a filling-type chocolate bar, and the cappuccino filling is definitely one of the more yummy ones. Not quite as liquid as the filling in a Lindt truffle, but for taste, it’s on par. Chocolate is smooth and sweet, no bitter aftertaste, creamy subtle coffee flavor. Found this in a local Giant supermarket. Overall:…
