Coconut Ash & Banana Super Dark 72% Cacao
The super dark chocolate is lovely and slightly bitter in the best way. But, the coconut ash is unpleasantly crisp and abrasive… in a too hard charred, rocky sort of way. And, this in combination with the banana adds an […]
Mo’s Dark Bar Uncured Smoked Bacon & Alderwood Smoked Salt 62% Dark Chocolate
Since we’ve loved every other Vosges bar that we’ve ever tried, we finally gave Mo’s Dark Bar a chance. Shockingly, we both enjoyed it. On first bite, the deep dark chocolate dominates with a lovely smoky background. […]
Pecan Pie M&Ms
Very interesting… We mildly enjoy the touch of burnt caramel flavor.

Grainy Mustard Fingerling Potato Salad
Someone made a meal out of it.
Lamb On Rosemary Focaccia
As always, the flavor of rosemary works beautifully with lamb. But, these olive oil rich loaves make for a nap-inducing lunch… not great for a […]
Primizie Smoked Dutch Gouda & Garlic CrispBread Chips
The flavors were “fine”. But, these crispbreads/chips have a hard, crisp crunch with an unpleasant denseness to that “thick-cut” chip. What do they mean by crisp breads? These are not pita chips as we were expecting. Instead, […]
