UNREAL Candy Review

(COUPONS WERE SENT TO ME BY BZZAGENT FOR PURCHASE OF CANDY TO REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS ARE MINE.)

Who doesn’t love chocolate?

I have met one person in my life who actually did not like the taste of chocolate.

(I always thought he needed his head examined.)

BzzAgent was fab enough to send me a coupon for a free UNREAL candy bar of my choice,

as well as a bunch of BOGO coupons to keep for myself pass along to my besties!

Because I adore Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,

I went to my nearest CVS and got UNREAL’s version

called “UNREAL77 Peanut Butter Cups UNJUNKED.”

The UNJUNKED brand has:

  • no artificials

  • no hydrogenateds

  • no corn syrups

  • no preservatives

  • no GMOs (Genetically-Modified Organisms)

This particular package has:

  • 3g of fiber

  • 5g of protein

  • 115mg of sodium

  • 12g of fat

  • 11g of sugar

  • 190 calories

They come fresh out of the package,

not in any kind of wrapping.

Though this chocolate was sweet,

I don’t think it was sweet enough.

It tasted a little bitter –

more dark chocolate-y than milk chocolate.

I suppose that’s because all the horrible chemically things

candy makers usually put in chocolate are absent in this brand.

 

The peanut butter on the inside was divine –

very soft and moist, not dry and crumbly like in a Reese’s.

But if you asked me if I’d rather eat healthy chocolate

or a bad-for-you Reese’s…

I’d choose Reese’s because of the difference in the chocolate tastes.

I think I need to try the other types that this brand offers:

  • Chocolate candy shell peanuts (think peanut M&Ms)
  • Chocolate candy shell (M&Ms)
  • Chocolate caramel nougat (think Milky Way)
  • Chocolate caramel peanuts nougat (think Snickers)

 

I think I’ll try Chocolate Caramel Nougat next because I sure do like my Milky Ways.

UNREAL has a limited release right now.

You can currently find the brand at CVS/pharmacy, Walgreens, Staples, Michael’s, Ralph’s, Kroger, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, Rite Aid, Big Y, Wegmans, Tedeschi Food Shops and BJ’s.

Cheese and Bread Feast

I promise I do not work for Central Market.

Nor do they endorse this blog.

It is just a new found obsession.

Alex’s parents were here last week.

We needed to run by Central Market on our way to dinner to pick up a gift.

In the midst of taste-testing everything, we decided to forego our initial plans of dining at Pappadeaux for picking out fun cheeses and breads and bring them home.

And bring them home we did!

Manila and Indian mangos

Pomegranate-Plumcots, Sugarplums, and Apricots

Parmesan Sourdough and more of that Prosciutto-filled Sourdough

Cinnamon-savory rotisserie chicken, Rye bread, and Garlic pita chips

Aged White Cheddar with Peppercorn and Garlic-Parmesan olive oil

Alex’s slice of Parmesan bread topped with Feta and Spinach spread, rotisserie chicken, Aged White Cheddar, and Gouda

The delicious feast!

Buon appetito!

Lovely Saturdays

With some time to kill on a Saturday afternoon,

why shouldn’t one go to Central Market for the first time?

Overwhelmed by aromas and visual artistry of food,

we were giddy inside the taste-test haven.

After seeing and sampling all we could,

we enjoyed the breeze just outside on the patio

sampling our goodies.
