These are good without being overly exceptional.  That’s an odd statement even for me.

There’s a nice bit of chocolate that lives somewhere between a milk and a dark chocolate at the heart of each truffle.  There’s no WOW factor to them.  They’re relatively inexpensive for the amount of chocolate in the box.  And for that price should we expect a WOW factor?  The texture in the mouth  is smooth and melty.  The dusting of cocoa powder adds a bit of taste contrast to the milder chocolate center.  Overall these are a very competent chocolate if your chocolate tastes lean towards the milder side of dark chocolate.  One won’t, but two or three should help satisfy your chocolate craving.   Price $2.49 per box      Calories  240 (1.41 oz/40 g serving size)

Imperium Lager Beer – ALDI – Food Review

beer. lager, Belgium, ImperiumDecember 16, 2016

Aside from the fairly recent rise of the craft beer industry, most beers consumed in America are lagers.  Coming from Belgium this ALDI beer of the month is also a lager, but with the usual European flavor.  Generally European beers have more of everything when compared with American beers; flavor, calories, alcohol and bitterness.  This lager is somewhat of a transition between the two.  The bitterness is reduced making it closer, but still different, from an American lager.  For Americans desiring more from their beer, this is a way to take a step in that direction.   Price  $6.49 – 6 pack, Calories – unspecified
