The chocolate shell and crispy pearls are nothing fancy. They are standard for Ganachery and Amorette’s piñatas.

The large candy corn chocolate pieces are infused with an orange flavor that is fabulous. You can feel the chocolate but taste the orange.

This is one of our favorite chocolate piñatas now, thanks to the chocolate-orange combination.

That said, if you don’t like orange flavoring with your chocolate, you probably won’t like this.

The small candy corn pieces are just your standard sugary candy.

Heimlich Munchlings Black Forest Pastry – $10

Vanilla bean mousse and dark chocolate mousse with cherries on a chocolate sable cookie

While the piñata and plush just look like Heimlich’s head, this pastry recreates his whole caterpillar body.

The green exterior is white chocolate. Heimlich’s feet are simple red M&Ms.

The white part inside is the vanilla bean mousse, which was delicious. There’s a cherry filling, which is good if you like cherry, but a con if you don’t.

The chocolate cookie on the bottom was not sweet at all. It had a cocoa powder taste.

If you like Black Forest cake, you’ll like this. If not, skip it and maybe opt for the piñata instead.
