Involved in the taste test was the MoCorn, which is made with sea salt, espresso, brown sugar, agave, locally grown ‘hull-less’ popcorn, and cultured butter, all of which is drizzled with their origin dark chocolate from Belize. Also up was the Chocolate Beercrunch, which is comprised of beer syrup, sugar, Martins Pretzels, beer nuts, mustard seed, and cultured butter, as well as the Beer Caramel Pretzel Nuggets, which is basically exactly what it sounds like.
Now, let's start with the two personal favorites. First, the Beer Caramel Pretzel Nuggets have a big crunch with a very tiny hint of salty followed by a flow of caramel sweetness. The pretzel nuggets weren't overly sweet, but they definitely had the perfect balance of flavors.
Onto the Chocolate Beercrunch. This product is just amazingly ridiculous in the best way possible. It's tempting to tell you to stay away as trying to eat just one will probably result in you eating the entire bag – and maybe even the bag as well. As someone who has never liked the combo of beer and chocolate, this was wonderful. You bite down and get the crunch of the beer syrup and the nuts, and just when you're getting a hoppy beer taste, the strong and rich chocolate bursts right in there. The flavors blend together perfectly and your mouth is filled with so much happiness. The taste lingers for a few minutes, then that happiness is over and you reach for another one. Seriously, they're addicting.
Now for the MoCorn. This was not a product that was completely thrilling. Chocolate drizzled popcorn is a wonderful thing, but the MoCorn was a bit on the mushy/soggy side and seemed a little too heavy. Someone else tasted it as well and he had the same opinion.
Regardless, the trip to Roni-Sue's Chocolates is worth it, or you can order their products online and have them delivered right to your door. The Beercrunch and Beer Caramel Pretzel Nuggets are highly recommended, the latter of which would also make a great addition if you're putting together a beer-inspired gift basket for a beer aficionado.
