Valentine’s Day

I saw some pretty windows decorated for Valentine’s Day here in Paris. They have learned it is a way to make money along with Halloween. Hearts made of chocolate in a chocolate shop. Lauderée, the famous tea shop, had the best windows. Heart shaped macarons. Lovely decorated boxes. Another window.

REVIEW: Internationally Inspired Peanut M&M’s (Flavor Vote 2019)

The flavor vote is back! Not the O.G. one for Lay’s Potato Chips but for M&M’s, and it’s the third go round. Peanut M&M’s were a part of the first one where Chili Nut reigned supreme and last year for the Crunchy rendition where Mint came out on top. This year, the vote has an international theme with the flavors associated with specific countries around the world. They are Mexican Jalapeno, English Toffee, and Thai Coconut. Mexican Jalapeno Let’s first go south of the border for Mexican J...

153 years of uninterrupted Sweethearts candies, interrupted

There will not be fresh Sweethearts candies this Valentine's Day. Known as "conversation starters," these candies have always tasted like a chewable antacid or gas relief pills. Never have they helped me find love. Next year in candyland! People Magazine: For the first time since they made their debut in 1866, the New England Confectionery Company (Necco) will not be selling Sweethearts Conversation Hearts. Last July, Necco closed its doors and the SweetHearts brand was sold to Spangler ...

Replacing America's Sweetheart

Sweethearts, a longstanding representation of American romance, will not be found on shelves this Valentine's Day. Necco, the company that has been making the iconic candies since 1986, was acquired by Round Hill Investments LLC in May 2018. But when the company entered bankruptcy shortly after, the plant responsible for Sweethearts was shut down and the business sold on to Spangler Candy Company. Spangler assured fans that they will continue production of Sweethearts, but they were unable to ge...

A property tycoon has rescued augmented reality startup Blippar from total collapse

British property tycoon Nick Candy has bought Blippar, the augmented reality startup which collapsed late last year.

Blippar's CEO Ambarish Mitra will head up the new entity, which will let people create their own augmented reality experiences on mobile. Candy has invested in and acquired a number of startups that went into administration. British property tycoon Nick Candy has acqu...

Spiced Candied Almonds

I have a soft spot, or should I say, a crunchy spot, for candied nuts. I like it when they’re baked to a crispy, golden brown, with a touch of sweetness that comes from coating the nuts with just enough sugar to make them crackle in your mouth, but not enough to overwhelm. I also like a bit of salt, spice, and even some heat added, as a counterpoint. Just enough so a little glow hits you a few seconds later, but not enough to burn. In other words, exactly the right amount to make you want you ...

REVIEW: Hershey’s Lava Cake Kisses

Money can’t buy love, but it can buy a bag of kisses. Such thoughts echoed through my mind as I stood in the checkout line, suddenly realizing that purchasing Valentine’s candy for myself is only one level less sad than making dinner reservations for a party of one. Featuring a molten core surrounded by a shell of rich dark chocolate, Hershey’s Lava Cake Kisses are the newest holiday-themed addition to the famous family of tear-drop shaped candies. Cascading from the bag, veiled in adorable ...

REVIEW: M&M’s Milk Chocolate Bars (2018)

Bringing stiff competition to Hershey’s new Milk Chocolate & Reese’s Pieces mashup, Mars has recently rolled out a full line of M&M’s inspired chocolate bars. Released as a set of five, all variations include miniature M&M’s embedded in a solid brick of milk chocolate and feature additional add-ins to pay homage to different varieties of the popular candy. Milk Chocolate Case in point that simplicity isn’t necessarily a bad thing, this bar is the most basic of the bunch, and consists of a n...

REVIEW: Creamy Snickers Bars

After its three “intense flavors” last summer Snickers is back with three more enticing new candy bars to satisfy your sweet tooth. This time it’s jumping on the nut butter bandwagon and replacing its signature full-size crunchy nuts with smooth and creamy butters. They are available in multiple sizes, but for this review, I went with the sharing pouches that contain 11 individually wrapped squares. The flavors are creamy peanut butter, creamy almond butter, and creamy maple almond butter. C...

A 'nonsense' valuation of $1 billion, a failed sale to Snap, and an investor fight: Inside Blippar's dramatic collapse

British augmented-reality startup Blippar once claimed to be a tech unicorn worth $1.5 billion. The company is best known for the Blippar app, which identified real-world objects and provided additional information. The company raised more than $130 million in investment funding but collapsed this week after burning through the cash and failing to raise more money. The startup's story is a cautionary tale of overblown expectations set by a charismatic CEO, a changing strategy, and the challeng...

Cococlectic Tastes

Lined up neatly on the mantel in one carefully manicured row, the thick card stock shimmered with foil appliques, glitter, glossy photos, puffy stickers. Printed or handwritten, each holiday card is a gift of the highest order. The thoughtful messages, updates on life events and bright wishes for the future, come straight from the heart. When I would simply ask to exchange greeting cards if prompted for a holiday wish list, it wasn’t to be rebellious nor frugal, but a genuine love of that time-h...

QUICK REVIEW: Kit Kat Chocolatory Special Strawberry Maple (Japan)

What is Kit Kat Chocolatory Special Strawberry Maple? While in Tokyo recently, I made a stop at the Kit Kat Chocolatory store & café and brought home some goodies. Kit Kat, the king of novelty-flavored candy bars, has rolled out a Strawberry Maple variety for their Chocolatory retail outlets in Japan. How is it? These Kit Kats have a strong, pleasant, but artificial, strawberry aroma. Like a bowl of Frankenberry doused in Strawberry Quik. No trace of maple yet. Strawberry was definitely ...

If You Fail at Tempering Chocolate, You Can Always Make Truffles

I was making peppermint bark last weekend, a treat this very website has described as “incredibly easy,” and I fucked it up. I had poured a layer of perfectly-tempered dark chocolate onto a parchment-coated sheet pan, and then I mixed peppermint oil into my white chocolate. Just as I was about to pour the white…Read more...

The Best Hardcore Albums Of 2018

One of the best moments I witnessed at this year’s Damaged City, the DIY punk festival in our nation’s capital, came when Wildhoney, a Baltimore shoegaze band, covered Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me.” There was no irony in that cover. There was only warm, nostalgic affection. And I didn’t see any irony in the … More »

QUICK REVIEW: Kit Kat Chocolatory Special Butter (Japan)

What is Kit Kat Chocolatory Special Butter? While in Tokyo recently, I made a stop at the Kit Kat Chocolatory store & café and brought home some goodies. Now, there’s always one errant flavor in the group that everyone raises an eyebrow at and this is it: butter. I’ll let the Google translation of the text inside the box describe them: “I kneaded butter powder between the layers of the wafers, making full use of the sweetness of chocolate, I finished it tastefully to feel the richness of bu...

Buzzy startup Blippar was said to be valued at $1 billion and held talks to sell to Snap. It is now on the brink of death.

Augmented reality firm Blippar, one of the UK's best-funded startups, is close to collapse. According to The Sunday Times, its chairman has written to shareholders warning of a dispute between two investors. Malaysian sovereign wealth fund Khazanah has reportedly blocked property tycoon Nick Candy from injecting further funding into Blippar. There have been months of red flags, with Blippar trying to sell itself earlier this year, internal dissatisfaction, and public accounts showing losses. N...
