Congratulations to KK @ Running Through Life! Hope you enjoy the chocolate as much as I did!
Pheww! Mama needs a break!
With four, VERY active, 1.5 yr old quadruplets...I sometimes find myself in need of a relaxing getaway---or at least some serious "chocolate therapy". (I know you other moms know EXACTLY what I'm talking about!)
So when BlogHer approached me with a review involving CHOCOLATE TASTE TESTING--(yes folks, you read that correctly)--I was not about to pass on this delightful opportunity. What better reason to fudge on that New Year's resolution, right?! A big box of M&M's new Premium Chocolates arrived at my door and I thought I was in heaven.
I enlisted the help of several- MORE THAN WILLING -volunteers: My beautifully pregnant sister-in-law and older brother (both of whom are self-proclaimed "Chocoholics")---and we immediately began the arduous task of evaluating these stylish new candies. ;)
(Hey...its a tough job...but somebody's gotta do it, right?!)
Having never seen these deluxe candies, I was immediately smitten with the dazzling array of jewel-toned colors. (How incredibly fun?!) And as I bit into each morsel of chocolately goodness, I let my mind wander to various thoughts and places. The following is my personal experience with these fab new flavors.
Warm, comfy, cozy...I'm curled up in a ball, listening to the soft crackling of the fireplace, drinking a soothing Vanilla Latte, with a good book-in-hand. I LOVE that the Mocha chocolates taste like chocolate covered Espresso beans, without having to break your teeth! The invigorating burst of coffee flavor will awaken your taste buds...I could only eat two or three at a time--which is GREAT! Usually all I need is a small nip of something sweet and I'm good to go. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
Hip, stylish, confident...Its GIRL'S NIGHT OUT, ladies! Throw on your high heels and lets go hit the town! With a package of M&M's Premium Raspberry Almonds in my clutch, I am feeling fabulous and ready to have some fun! The dark chocolate and raspberry combination was easily my favorite (if not for the sparkling hot pink color alone!)--and throw an almond in the mix as well?--UH-MAY-ZING! I confess, I could NOT stop at just 2 or 3 of these almonds...I think I may have found my new favorite affordable luxury!
Fun, spontaneous, exciting...Its movie/game night with Joe and the kids! We pop in our favorite DVDs, play games- laughing until it hurts, make some buttery popcorn, and snack on these smooth milk chocolate almonds throughout the night. I am pretty sure I could eat an entire box in one sitting. I have always been a sucker for any chocolate covered almond--so, its almost like the other guys didn't stand a chance! I also loved the brilliant blue color of the almond...a sure way to spice up any bland party!
Hmmm...I couldn't quite put my finger on it. I think I was expecting the hard crunchy outer shell of an M&M and was surprised to find a silky smooth piece of chocolate. At first I dismissed the Triple Chocolate M&M as your average chocolate candy...but the more I ate, the more I couldn't restrain myself! The unique blending of 3 deluxe chocolates (dark, milk, and white) created a rich taste that I began to crave at all hours of the day. You'd better watch yourself, because these will sneak up on you, and before you know it---the entire box is gone!
Who me?...No! I'm just sayin'...it COULD happen...(wink)
Cool, brisk, refreshing...I feel alive- soaking in the fresh, crisp, mountain air reviving my soul. I'm relaxing in a rustic cabin, listening to a babbling brook, savoring every second of the mint chocolate morsel that is dissolving in my mouth. Perfect solution for an after-dinner treat to cleanse the palette. These candies remind me of dark chocolate covered peppermint patties--However, I prefer the M&M's Premium Mint Chocolate goodies because they are made of WHITE chocolate infused with mint and covered with a soft, dark chocolate exterior---an amazing taste combination all wrapped up in perfect miniature spheres of delight.
