I was at a trade show yesterday, and picked up a couple of free samples of chocolate covered macadamia nuts - very tasty, but even better was the large tiki on the outside wrapper.

The company name is Hawaiian Host, they do mail order, and their website is http://www.hawaiianhost.com/HawaiianHost/

You have my permission to indulge.

Here's your chance to own your own classic tiki bar!

Classic Tiki Bar

now at wegman's, if you happen to have one nearby.

For this one you would have to travel a little further:

And this is not chocolate, but candy...Swiss fizzy candy!:

Apparently familiar to anybody whop grew up in Switzerland, it hails form PRE-Tiki times. Their web page history link
( http://www.tiki.ch/geschichte_d.php ) tells of the Czech founder Hynek Boleslav Allan inventing it in 1907 (!...that was one year before Picasso bought his first Tiki! ), his son migrating to Switzerland and starting to manufacture it there in 1947. The history of what possessed Allan senior to choose that name is lost, apparently. The nice label above was brought back for their 60th anniversary, usually their modern logo is this annoying Manga character that targets the kids.

However, I dig those soccer shirts!:

They aren't tiki shaped, but they are spiced rum filled chocolates. The shop is called Chocolat and my parent's used to live close by.
It's in Fredericksburg, TX which is a German community in the Hill Country.
You can order the chocolates online. http://www.liquidchocolates.com/spirited-chocolates

Story of GROG' life.

Hello, my name GROG, and GROG addict.

On the subject of liquor-filled chocolates, Germany produces Asbach brandy-filled dark chocolate crescent-shaped "beans." Each "bean" is about 1.25 inches in length. These are my ULTIMATE liquor-filled chocolates in the world. The Asbach Uralt brandy is heavenly when paired with the dark chocolate. Note that if you find these, you may consider avoiding the variety with the sugar crust inside because (to me) it detracts from the flavors.

(Edited to describe the length of each "bean.")
