My co-worker Dini M. found more Star Wars chocolate at Disneyland this week.
These were really yummy, for milk chocolate. They had soft centers and rice krispies inside, and I really liked them. Plus, each one was stamped with the likeness of BB-8.
I have also had Disney’s two dark chocolate Star Wars candies, the Sea Salt and the Caramel, also both gifts from Dini. These chocolates were amazing, and I think Disney is really upping their chocolate game lately.
Hot on the heels of my discovery of Baskin Robbins Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream in my grocer’s freezer, I found these amazing treats.
Now if you want to find a way to make me even fatter than I am now, just find some food I like and make it easier and faster for me to eat it. I think that it what Ben & Jerry did here. They took my favorite flavor of their ice cream, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, and wrapped it in a dark chocolate coating, making it trivial for me to remove from the freezer and stuff in my mouth. Who needs scoops, spoons and bowls anymore?! BRING IT ON!
While I was in Australia, Cadbury released a new dark milk chocolate bar there. They said it was for Mother’s Day, but I knew it was for me.
This bar was delicious! It was 40% cacao, so it was fairly dark and it had a rich chocolate flavor while being super creamy at the same time. I thought it tasted like the inside of a chocolate truffle. A couple of my co-workers thought it had a raisin-like aftertaste, but they are crazy. One co-worker even thought there was a mild chili pepper aftertaste. He is even crazier!
Ignore them and enjoy this bar, if you can find it.
I found my favorite Baskin Robbins ice cream flavor at my local grocery store!
I loved the description on the back label. “Take everything you love about chocolate and multiply it by chocolate”.
I am not sure if this is the deepest chocolate flavored ice cream I have ever tasted, but it must be pretty close, and it is so darkly colored that it is almost black. I love this ice cream, and it was all I could do to not eat it all in one sitting. I managed to split it over two nights, and I am afraid I am going to run back to the store for more! Yes, it is that good.
I walked past this cafe near my hotel in Sydney at 6 am (my hours were crazy from jet lag) and I decided to eat breakfast there when it opened at 7 am.
I had a delicious Lindt mocha with my ham and cheese croissant.
This mocha was very good, with a deep chocolate flavor. And they floated a Lindt chocolate tablet on top of the foam, plus added a Lindor truffle on the plate, for a little extra chocolate punch.
The cafe also sold a few Lindt bars that have not made it to the States yet, so expect them to be reviewed here soon!
The night before the Sydney conference began, I went to a speaker event in downtown Sydney on the Circular Quay, and two friends I had met at the conference last year came by and brought me a mousse cake from Guylian.
Let’s take a closer look.
The cake had a sponge base with a chocolate mousse filling, was covered in dark ganache, and finally striped with white chocolate. And yum, it was good! And so rich that I would have had trouble finishing it, but my friends helped.
Thanks Lee and Sanita!
On my flight to Sydney, the chocolate gods smiled on me and included this brownie as part of my in-flight meal.
This brownie was super yummy. It was very chocolatey and very moist, and it was so dense that this little square weighed over an ounce. I’d definitely like to eat a few more of these, along with a glass of milk.
