BLVD — Tortoni Ice Cream

Classic Tortoni BLVD Tasty Ice Cream

We must start by saying there weren’t all that many cherries, cookie crumbs or almonds in our pint of ice cream. As a matter of fact, the pieces of cherry that we could find were quite small. And, the […]

Rabbit On The Run (Rabbit Coffee Roasting Co. Cold Brew Concentrated Coffee)

We wouldn’t say this coffee will be a favorite of ours. But, we do love the bottle. If you’re in a pinch (maybe you’re at the office with no time to brew a fresh pot of […]

Pure Taqueria

Crab Fritters

For a to-go order, the chili sauce should really be used much more sparingly. Or, better yet, package it separately. This sauce made a horrible mess. The inside of the bag and the to-go box was covered in sauce. Luckily, we opened the […]

Mitica ChocoCherries

Mitica ChocoCherries (Handmade In Aragon, Spain)

These dark chocolate hand dipped candied cherries are divine. Do you love a chocolate covered cherry? But, do you think to yourself, “I wish there was significantly less sugar and syrup.”? If so, these are for you. The saccharine sweet syrup is completely gone. […]
