EDRADOUR

Recently, I received this fantastic Edradour Single Highland Malt Whisky Fudge.  It is a skosh sweet for my personal taste, but I still think the tin of individually wrapped candies make a nice gender-neutral alternative to the over abundance of cutesy confectionery options.  “Fudge” is misleading; I would describe them as delicious caramels infused with whisky from Scotland’s smallest distillery established way back in 1825.  Whatever you call ‘em, they’re yum.

Don’t forget about the Marshmallow Fluff.  It’s a great alternative to using marshmallows which contain gelatin.  Use marshmallow creme to make vegetarian-friendly rice treats and s’mores.  Ricemellow for the vegans.

Marshmallow-in-a-jar makes a delicious icing too and is much lighter than many other options based in butter or cheese.

Luna Protein Bars

Try these Luna Protein Bars yet?  Introduced in 2010, I prefer these to the original Luna BarsLuna Protein Bars have a rounder shape and are covered in chocolatey goodness.  The texture and mouth feel are addictive.  These could become a habit-forming problem.  In addition to a respectable amount of calcium, folate, and other minerals, gain a whopping 7 grams of protein and save 70 calories and 2 grams of fat over a similarly sized Snickers bar. 

SLEIGH BELLS: TREATS

The new album from the Sleigh Bells begins with a bombastic audio punch and takes you on a ride that never really lets up.

I respect a duo that can edit.  At just over 32 minutes, Treats gives you a taste and leaves you wanting more — as a debut should.
