Chocolate & Halva Kurtosh

I recently spent a few months in Tel Aviv. I couldn’t leave without reviewing (and, most importantly, consuming) one of the city’s finest dessert surprises. Behold the kurtosh! A traditional Hungarian dessert / yeast cake tube thing, which must be …

Strauss Krembo

While Israel is enjoying its two annual weeks of winter, I decided it was time to return to yet another classic. Behold the Krembo, a somewhat controversial chocolate-covered sweet that originated in Denmark and somehow found its way to Israel, …

Elite ‘Fingers’ With Popping Candy

OK, so we had the Elite chocolate with popping candy and we had the Elite milk chocolate with cream. Now, someone over at Elite must have said to himself (or herself) one day “hey, why not combine the two …

Elite Biscuit Chocolate Bar

This review is coming at you from Tel Aviv, where I am currently wintering. As my family have been showering me with gifts of chocolate, some old favourites, as well as well as others that are new to me, there …

Elite “Cow” Milk Chocolate With Popping Candy

Klik Cookie

This is the last of the ‘Klik’ range of Israeli chocs sent to us by OhNuts.com, they others being Gourmet Truffles, Malt Balls and Kariot-Pillows. These ‘Cookies’ are pretty much what you’d expect looking at the bag. Random chunks of cookie, …

Klik Malt Balls

Here’s another of the Klik range of Israeli chocolates sent to us by OhNuts.com Malt Balls are pretty much the same as Maltesers, except they’re smaller (about a quarter the size of a Malteser) and not quite as ‘malty’. Personally I like …

Klik Half Gourmet Truffles

This is another of the Klik samples sent to us by OhNuts.com. The ‘Half’ in the name doesn’t seem to mean half-fat or half-sugar or even half-chocolate. Instead it seems to just refer to the half-speherical shape of these cute little …

Klik Kariot-Pillows

Ok, well this is a little unusual. These Israeli chocolates were sent to us by our newest Sponsor, OhNuts.com. OhNuts are US based, so these choccies have pretty much traveled around the world to end up in my stomach. Sometimes I’m …
