Christmas Sours: SweeTarts Merry Mix

 I love SweeTarts so much and enjoy these sour sugar bombs reconstituted as festive seasonal snowmen and Christmas trees. The entire box of Merry Mix was devoured instantaneously so I'm going back to the store to stock up.

Chopin's Muse as Chocolate Cameo: Delfina P. Chocolates from Poland

Ooh what a great new discovery at the local Polish market! Delfina P. Chocolates are named for Delfina Potocka, once a muse of Frederic Chopin and a renowned beauty and intellect. The individually gold-foil wrapped bonbons consist of a hard dark chocolate shell filled with firm vanilla cream infused with mystery alcohol. The dark chocolate shell is adorned by an elegant white chocolate cameo of Delfina.

Brace Yourself, It's Time for Christmas

Last week I finished my last bag of candy corn, so thank goodness Christmas candy season has arrived just in time for a fresh infusion. Yes, it's really early. I've barely considered Thanksgiving plans yet. But with so many Christmas-related sweets to sample, we might as well approach the heavily loaded sweets aisles. Let's just ease in with a little Christmas-themed candy corn.

Start your engines and get your sweet tooth in gear.....

Brach's Football Candy Corn

Happy football season, sweet readers! I don't follow it, personally, but welcome any Brach's candy corn variation, especially those in a larger size. The caramel flavor doesn't really work, but the classic and chocolate flavors more than make up for it!

Pacari Organic "Tree to Bar" Chocolate with Fig from Ecuador

Directly from Ecuador, Pacari chocolate is elevated bean to bar chocolate. They're the ideal example of why Ecuador is known for its chocolate. The Fig bar is especially decadent, with emphasis on the intense chocolate and only a whif, an aroma and subtle infusion of real fig. Thanks, Paola!

Ghirardelli Intense Dark Blood Orange Sunset

There's a more refined way to enjoy the Halloween candy season than simply gulping handfuls of candy corn (not that there's anything wrong with that). The Ghirardelli Intense Dark Blood Orange Sunset bar brings a dark twist to a chocolate classic. Little freeze dried bits of blood orange suspended through the dark chocolate pack tiny bombs of super zingy citrus flavor, and the chocolate itself is infused with a more subtle citrus note. Delicious!
