Dark Chocolate Honey Mints

Brand: Trader Joes Cost: $4.99 Found at: Trader Joes Suspicious.  That’s how I feel about these mints.  Deeply suspicious.  The bag claims that these little mint patties are made from only three ingredients: honey, chocolate liquor, and oil of peppermint. But I’m here to say that there’s no way. I sound like an infomercial saying... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Brooklyn Babka

Brand: Trader Joes Cost: $4.99 Found at: Trader Joe's I’ve missed you Trader Joes. Oh, how I’ve missed you.  I’ve missed your over-the-top hipster treats. I’ve missed your niche foreign foods.

Marzipan Chocolates

Brand: Anthon Berg Cost: 10KR Found at: Coop I almost never eat marzipan chocolates except for in Sweden. There are two reasons for this. The first is that Swedes, in general, love marzipan.

Digestive Thins Dark Chocolate

Brand: McVittie’s Cost: 99p Found at: Lidl   There are days when I need love. There are days when I need fulfillment. And then there are days when I need to eat a box of chocolate digestives in bed. Let’s just call it “self-care” and say no more about it.   Clearly, these thin chocolate... Continue Reading →

White Chocolate Coconut & Corn Flakes

Brand: Fin Carré Cost: 45p Found at: Lidl   The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, I am still in lockdown, and I am feeling tropical. I’ve cranked my heater up to 5, donned a tank-top and shorts, and am blasting every Israel Kamakawiwoʻole song that iTunes has to offer. I even hurried over... Continue Reading →

Cadbury Oreo Crème Eggs

Brand: Cadbury Cost: 50p Found at: Sainsbury’s   After a few short years as a teacher, the contents of my purse has forever changed.
