Sugarfina – My Virtual Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory

24 Sep

I get a lot of junk email. It is mostly my fault as I sign up for every shopping, vacation and coupon site out there. I don’t always read the offers but recently a write up of the site Sugarfina caught my eye. This was probably due to the word “sugar”.

This candy boutique was set up by Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick who wanted to bring the best candy from around the world to me and oh yeah, you as well. But mostly me.

The website is very easy to use:

Pick your candy. Subcategories include traditional items like chocolate and gummies. You can look into candies that are classified as “Young at Heart” or “Colorful”. You can also search candy by country of origin.  If you need help or want to buy for a special occasion, Sugarfina has gift ideas and does custom packaging.

Once you are done buying up the place, you can ship the candy to anywhere you desire.

I have already clocked way too many hours on this site and wanted to share some of my favorites with you (hint to husband, family, friends and strangers)

S’Mores

Described as a mini marshmallow drenched in premium milk chocolate, then rolled in crushed graham crackers. Kum Bah Yah!

Licorice Beagles

I don’t particularly like black licorice but I can’t resist it when it looks like a beagle.

Ice Cream Sundae Malt Balls

Move over Ben & Jerry. These malt balls come in Raspberry, Orange Sherbet, Pineapple, and Key Lime. Who says the summer is over?

Chocolate Sparkles

Like M&M’s but better because they, yup you guessed it, sparkle.

Chocolate Day

14 Feb

HAPPY CHOCOLATE DAY! Yes, I know it is called Valentine’s Day but according to Nielsen, Americans will purchase around 58 million pounds of chocolate during the days leading up to February 14th[i].

Chocolate Day came a day early for me this year as my husband surprised me on the 13th with a delicious box of chocolates from The Chocolate Bar in New York City http://www.chocolatebarnyc.com/blog1/ 

Gimmie S’mores

This is S’MORES in a candy bar! Hand piped marshmallow and graham covered in rich milk chocolate.

Rang Dangs

Cream filled chocolate cake. This is a little like a Ring Ding but it’s a small cake.

 Scooter Bar

Homemade marshmallow, caramel and flourless chocolate cake . This wasn’t my favorite, yet it must not have been so bad since I finished it in two bites.

 Milk Chocolate Bar

This is 4 ounces of creamy milk chocolate that melts in your mouth. It is definitely a step above my usual Hershey’s milk chocolate bar.

 And to top it all off, my favorite:

 Pretzels dipped in chocolate

Pretzel rods dipped in milk chocolate. The perfect combination of sweet  and savory!

 Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
