I cleaned out my candy cupboard!

Well there, I did it. I cleaned out my cupboard. I ditched the candy canes, the half-eaten candy bars and the empty wrappers, although I'm holding onto the candy corn for future still lifes. So let me take this moment to tie up some loose ends.

First, the Seattle Chocolate Extreme Dark Chocolate Truffle Bar with Chocolate Nibs that sat on my desk for a few weeks was really, really good. The nibs were crunchy without being too dry like espresso beans. The chocolate was smooth and yummy. Definitely a winner.

I tried the Big Green Triangle from the UK Gourmet and it was pretty disappointing. I only had a bite. It tasted kind of stale and crumbly, and the hazelnut taste was a little too pronounced. But I'd still eat it over the horrid Seeds of Change Bayano bar (see previous post.) Brian has been slowly eating that foul thing. I was changing Henri's diaper the other day when Brian came up behind me eating a piece of it and I caught a whiff of it. Believe it or not, the chocolate overpowered the diaper. I can smell it a room away and it still makes me gag.

I had a Reese's Fast Break a few weeks ago and it was strangely addicting. I didn't think I liked it at first. The combination of the peanut butter and chewy nougat was weird, but I got used to it. I don't think I'd choose one over a regular Reese's, but it was worth a try.

So now my candy cupboard is bare. What should I fill it with?

I've had to clean out my candy cubbard because I'm moving to a new place in a week. I've been frantically trying to eat everything I've got as to avoid throwing it out. What am I going to stash my new cubbard with? I'm going to try the Truffle and Cocnut Creme Kisses, The Caramel Tootsie Pops, See's Scotchmallows, Jelly Beans, a few Mallow Cups and Big Hunks, and that's not counting any of the interesting Easter Candy I maybe come across.

I know, I'm bad. :P

Let me know how those Coconut Creme kisses are. I keep looking at them. And I've been dying for some Scotchmallows ever since Cybele wrote about them. Mmmmm. Maybe I'll go candy shopping today!
