Red Velvet Oreo

Limited Edition Red Velvet Oreos

We confess. Oreos are one of an extremely short list of packaged cookies that we will buy at the grocery store. Yes, it’s definitely a very rare occasion… maybe once or twice a year we’ll buy a package. Sometimes, we […]

Lake Champlain Chocolates — Five Star Bar

Lake Champlain Chocolates Five Star Bar

These dense, chunky little bars are quite interesting. The lighter truffle-like center reminds us of creamy milk chocolate dotted with tender sour cherry halves, praline, and crunchy fresh pecan pieces. Then, the cherry and praline rich chunks are dipped in a darker […]

Green Tea Mochi

Royal Family Green Tea Mochi

So, we’re not really mochi fans… especially the packaged type. The doughy blobs hidden by over-sized packaging rarely live up to the “artistic” renderings on the box. Every box is a gamble. You never know what you’re going to get. […]

Nam Phuong — Mì Quảng

Mì Quảng

Topped with roasted chicken chunks, roasted peanuts, delicious and crispy shards of black sesame rice crackers…

Chả lụa (or giò lụa, or Vietnamese pork loaf slices), tender shrimp…

And, tucked under those peanuts […]

Traderspoint Creamery — Wildberry Yogurt

Traderspoint Creamery Yogurt Whole Milk, Raspberry, & Wildberry

By far, wild berry was our favorite.

We love the glass jars. Each individual serving comes in its own 5 oz jar. The plastic wrap around the jar was easy to remove. Then, we used […]

Pandan Cakes

Honestly, we weren’t expecting much. So, we were very happily surprised with these. They’re a bit like a Twinkie. But, these are so much better than a cloyingly sweet, greasy (paste-y) cream filled twinkie. They’re softer, fluffier, less greasy, and just all around tastier. We actually want to eat these. […]

Jaemor Farms

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Four large sandwich cookies for $4.99, these were soft, sweet and filled with a super sweet buttercream frosting… not a marshmallow filling. We were really hoping for marshmallow.

Pecan Hand Pies

There were hand pies with fresh […]

Paris Baguette — Liege Waffles

Paris Baguette’s Liège Style Waffle

Liege waffles, Belgian sugar waffles, gaufrettes, gaulettes, gullets,

or …

Gaufres de Liège

Sugar waffles in the style of Liege are rich, sweet almost cookie-like waffles that are dotted with pearl sugar. This tends […]

Paris Baguette — Mont Blanc

Paris Baguette’s Mont Blanc Pastry

Incredibly rich with a piping of dense chestnut paste on top and stuffed with two little roasted chestnuts under the paste, these were divine. We both love just about anything and everything with chestnuts. Yes, the chestnut paste might be […]

TDH Tom, Dick, & Hank

Smoked Turkey Ribs

What is a turkey rib? Well, it’s a slice of turkey breast that’s smoked on one bone. That bone gives you something to hold on to while you nibble it up. It’s incredibly tender. […]
