Looks like the melamine we have heard about from China has made its way to Canadian Costco stores, specifically chocolate coins sold there. Read more here.

I'm very excited, my ChocolateSmith
items have arrived. Thank you in advance to the folks at the Santa Fe based artisan chocolate company. I saw this company on Food Network's Road Tasted with the Neelys, and had to check them out.
Aside from the great flavor combinations, what struck me about these folks is that they called their chocolates "pate" - because they use cheese wax to cover their chocolates. Besides being a brilliant shipping move (my stuff arrived seemingly unscathed in 100 degree AZ heat), the wax itself serves as beautiful, one of a kind artwork. Wait until you see the photos of this stuff!
In the meantime you can check them out here.

If there was ever a timely candy, this is it. With an 800 point drop in the market yesterday, we're all feeling the credit crunch. So why not turn that into an opportunity? This is exactly what Laura Santini has done. Credit Crunch is honeycomb enrobed in chocolate, yummy no matter what you call it. They have milk (40% Cocoa Solids) and dark (66% Cocoa Solids) versions.
Ironically, you'll need a credit card to buy them online, but they're only $3.99 at Chocolate Society so its not too bad...

We picked up a bag of Green & Black's Organic Milk Chocolates the other day and were very pleased by the experience. The bag is filled with individually wrapped, bite-sized pieces of milk chocolate that Green & Black's calls "Intense," which is a very accurate description. All the ingredients are organic: raw cane sugar, whole milk powder, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin and vanilla extract.
Each piece is a little bigger than a quarter, with a nice G&B imprint on top. It is the perfect size - a little bite that packs a big punch to quash your milk chocolate craving. The flavor is more complex than most milk chocolates. You definitely get a caramel flavor which is delightful. But you also get an occasional hint of sour, which isn't off putting, but instead adds depth. It has amazing mouthfeel - its so creamy that it is almost sticky, the kind of stickiness you'd get with a thinner peanut butter. But of course much smoother and creamier.
CandySnob loves these little morsels of goodness. The perfect little treat during the day.
