Haribo GIANT Strawbs

Today we’re reviewing Haribo GIANT Strawbs. These are strawberry flavoured gummies that are also vegetarian. I like these overall. Their flavour is solidly strawberry. The chewiness is a good middle of the road gummy – not too hard and not too soft. However, they also have a bit of an oily quality to them that isn’t ideal. It’s not going to stop me from eating them, but it may deter others. Score: 6/10 Advertisements Continue reading Haribo GIANT Strawbs

Peter Beier World of Chocolate Hispaniola – Milk 33%

Today we’re reviewing a Danish chocolate brand – Peter Beier. They have a wide variety of milk and dark chocolates, all based on different chocolate growing locations, hence the name “World of Chocolate”. As the picture above shows, this chocolate, Hispaniola 33%, is a milk chocolate that is meant to taste of “Butter flower, vanilla and a hint of caramel”. I’m honestly not entirely sure what butter flower would taste like, but wow do the vanilla and caramel come through! This chocolate is milk chocolate, but it might as well be a caramel chocolate. The end result is delicious and … Continue reading Peter Beier World of Chocolate Hispaniola – Milk 33%

Green & Black’s Velvet Edition Dark Chocolate Mint

As has been documented numerous times here at EXPATisserie, dark chocolate and mint is my favourite combo. So when I saw this at the shop, I knew I had to try it! I’d say this bar is just ok. A solid contender, but nothing special. The dark chocolate is a good quality, and isn’t overly bitter. However, the mint, described as “refreshing” on the package, just isn’t that minty. It’s definitely there, but doesn’t have the pop that I expect from mint when paired with dark chocolate. H’s review: I’d agree with the above. As somebody who likes dark chocolate … Continue reading Green & Black’s Velvet Edition Dark Chocolate Mint

A – The Original Lakrids by Bülow

We’re here today with an H only review for Lakrids by Bülow – the original chocolate coated liquorice. H’s review: These are great. The texture is soft and they’re great if you like black liquorice. The flavours work well together, though not perfectly. My only minor complaint is that the chocolate melts quickly and then you’re left with only the flavour of liquorice. However, overall they’re super delicious. Score: 8/10 Continue reading A – The Original Lakrids by Bülow

Candy Kittens Sour Watermelon Gourmet Sweets

Today we’re reviewing Candy Kittens Sour Watermelon Gourmet Sweets. I fully expected these to live up to Sour Patch Kids Watermelon, but they fell just short. That’s not to say they aren’t good – they are! – just not as good as the Sour Patch Kid variety. Overall, they’re very pleasant. They have a nice amount of sour sugar on the outside, but are very sweet on the inside, which balances nicely. They might be a tad too sweet, for something that’s meant to be sour though. Overall, if you like sour candy, I would still recommend! Score: 7/10 Continue reading Candy Kittens Sour Watermelon Gourmet Sweets

Cadbury Caramel Egg

Another classic Easter candy review here – the Cadbury Caramel Egg! I actually thought this was much better than I was expecting. I thought the caramel would be very very runny for some reason, but it’s actually a pleasant firm, yet not too chewy, caramel. The chocolate coating also works well. However, there is a lot of caramel so you really have to like this specific caramel for this to be something you’d want. H’s review: I was biased going into this review because I don’t love caramel, but given that, this was much better than I expected. The caramel … Continue reading Cadbury Caramel Egg

Cadbury Darkmilk

I saw this new Cadbury bar recently and thought we had to review it! The Darkmilk bar has a higher cocoa content than the Dairy Milk, and therefore is meant to taste like a cross between dark chocolate and milk chocolate. So, how is it? This is delicious. At first I was disappointed, because I thought it would taste more like dark chocolate. However, it actually tastes exactly like a brownie in chocolate form, which is AMAZING. I don’t like brownies or cake due to the texture (I know, I know), but I’ve always liked the flavour. This bar is … Continue reading Cadbury Darkmilk
