Free candy from other people!

The All Candy Expo was last week, and I really wish I could’ve gone. It’s a like a career fair for candy! Candy Blog and Candy Addict are giving away extras from ther Candy Expo hauls, so throw your hat in the ring! Chocolate Bytes is giving away these gorgeous autumn-themed See’s chocolates. I entered,…

Hubba Bubba Sour Gummi Tape – Ragin’ Blue Raspberry

I find it so weird that some candy companies feel the need to add adjectives to their flavors. It’s not blue raspberry flavored; it’s ragin’ blue raspberry. Of course, now that I’ve pointed that out, I can’t think of any other examples, but they’re out there! I know they are. The Hubba Bubba Sour Gummi…

Cock-a-doodle Chew – This Gum Tastes Like Chicken!

Is it weird that I got really excited to see this gum that tastes like chicken? It was bizarre enough to be intriguing, and I was already imagining how I could casually brag about my brave willingness to try chicken-flavored gum. Upon closer inspection, however, disappointment. Cinnamon. Yummy, but in this context, boring. Cassie was…

Lake Champlain chocolate-covered caramel

I apologize in advance for the color-balancing issues you’ll see in this post. I take my pictures with my little digital point-and-shoot (a Canon SD-1000, which I love) in a dorm room with no overhead lighting, so they’re not exactly studio quality. Lake Champlain (BUY!) is a nice chocolatier that I can’t really afford entire…

Cry Baby Tears Minis

These days, candy that only costs 25 cents a box is definitely a rarity. I’m guessing that Cry Baby Tears are a retro/nostalgia candy that have been around for a while. From the looks of the packaging, Cry Baby Tears are supposed to be so sour that they make you cry. They certainly were tart…

Asian candies II

As promised, more Asian candies! Juice hard candy I don’t what these guys are actually called – the wrapper just says Juice and has some pictures of fruit on it – but I love them. I realize that’s not very helpful if you want to try to find them yourself, and I apologize. All I…

First Home Game!

Here’s where I let my personal life creep into my candy blog, as promised in my opening post. I’m so excited about today’s home opener! Go Bulldogs! Yay football! Let’s make this candy related: We’re playing Cornell, aka the Big Red. Big Red is also the name of a cinnamon gum that I hated as…

5 gum

As I wrote in an earlier post, I got quite the 5 gum package from Wrigley (BUY!) via BzzAgent. The BzzGuide booklet that came with it was far more elaborate that I expected. Some excerpts: “Comes in stick form, which is the most popular.” “Because of its distinct design, you can open the pack with…

In case of emergency…

I wrote the following post just in case I wasn’t responsible enough to finish today’s planned post in time. I was, but I thought I’d share the post with you anyway. Today’s planned review will post an hour after this one. Enjoy, and happy Friday!

Take 5 Marshmallow – Limited Edition

I got super excited when I saw the Take 5 Marshmallow at Party City. The Take 5 (BUY!) is one of my favorite candies, as is the See’s Scotchmallow, so maybe the combination of the two would be candy perfection! Sadly it was not a candy revelation. To the contrary, it was rather unremarkable and…
