Do you like marzipan? I sure do. For me, just one bite of this sweet, almost exotically delicious treat says “It’s Christmastime!” more than any other holiday food. Made with a base of ground almonds, sugar and egg whites, it’s one of those polarizing things that people either love madly or just do not ‘get.’ If you don’t even know what Marzipan is, this post will tell you all you need to know about a marvelous thing that you should familiarize yourself with sooner rather than later. Tis the season, after all. Continue reading Marzipops Marzipan, For The Holidays!

These Pink Jelly Belly candies were photographed while locked inside a glass case surrounding the information desk — creating a color spectrum display — which was part of the company’s booth at the Summer Fancy Food Show, which I attended on June 12th!

When it comes to flavor preferences, chocolate is a bit like wine; some prefer a bold red over a delicate white, just as chocolate lovers may favor bitter-sweet dark chocolate over the creamier, sweeter milk chocolate. Ultimately, it’s nice to have lots of choices so that you can suit your own taste and have room to experiment. RED chocolate, makers of delectable low sugar chocolate bars, understand what variety is all about.

In our previous review of RED Chocolate, we revealed how RED is sweetened exclusively with zero-calorie, plant-based Stevia and naturally-occurring melon sugars, giving it an amazing taste and texture, with a reduced amount of fat. Thanks to the absence of processed sugar, RED’s dark chocolate varieties contain up to 50% fewer calories, while Red’s milk chocolate bars’ calorie count is reduced by up to 35%. Now, RED has introduced a new variety – BLONDE Caramelized White Chocolate — that upholds the brand’s commitment to zero-percent added sugar, high quality ingredients and fabulously indulgent flavor. Just wait until you taste it!
