BBM 2.0 – Jacques Pure Chocolate Hagelslag Granules

This was the last item in my Blogging by Mail package. I bet you thought that box was bottomless! πŸ˜† I thought these ‘Jacques Pure Chocolate Hagelslag Granules‘ were just ‘sprinkles’ but they’re not! They melt in your mouth! (All the sprinkles I have ever […]

BBM 2.0 – Doitung Macadamia Nuts with Wasabi

Although this is one of the last of the items in my Blogging by Mail package to be written up it actually was the first item to be opened. My mother is a nut addict and I had never tasted macadamia nuts before so it […]

No words necessary! πŸ™‚ These were the last to be consumed, but they are not the last in this series by any means πŸ™‚ Customs sliced the bottom of this (and one other box) checking for ‘contraband’! πŸ™ So creamy and light inside!!! πŸ™‚

BBM 2.0 – Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

In my Blogging by Mail package was a package of odd looking brown noodles. I wasn’t sure at first what they were. From the italian text I could figure out it was pasta, but with mushrooms? Was i reading it wrong? Turns out I wasn’t! […]

BBM 2.0 – Le Saunier Fleur de Sel de Camargue (French Sea Salt)

Sea Salt! I love Sea Salt! I started buying it a few years ago after TruValu stopped stocking kosher salt. I loved its coarse texture, intense flavour and of course, being the health hippy that I was raised to be, its trace mineral goodness. Normally […]

BBM 2.0 – Petits Calins de Pont-Aven: Dark chocolate wafers filled with Mint cream

I’ve never been a big fan of ‘thin mints’. My only memories of them were in the boxes of US Girl Guide cookies that would appear from time to time in the dorms during college. I believe I’ve also had them locally but I don’t […]

BBM 2.0 – Dolfin Dark Chocolate with Cinnamon from Ceylan

This chocolate bar was as divine to unwrap as it was to consume. It came in a plastic sealed package that reminded me of my father’s old school tobacco pouches πŸ™‚ I am a huge lover of dark chocolates, so I was in 7th heaven […]

BBM 2.0 – Belle Vue Extra Appel-Kers

“There is a small can of Belgian cherry beer – another thing Belgium is famous for.” With that one line, Eva’s letter attempted to prepare me for a new taste experience. I had never had cherry beer and had no idea what to expect! The […]

BBM 2.0 – Chocolate Eggs

These eggs were so rich and decadent and delish! Some were dark chocolate, some were white. All had what seemed to be a creamy hazelnut filling. I couldn’t tell the name of the brand, it seemed to start with R, but I was too busy […]
