Nestle Nuts Candy Bar - Review

Nestle Nuts the Candy Bar [Review]

Nostalgia sweets… Here’s a candy that’ll have the 12-year old boy in you giggling and elbowing your neighbor in the ribs: I found Nestle Nuts in Lidl, this weird discount/grocery store in Southport that had extremely cheap fruits and veg. How cheap? The day I went, they were in the midst of an “All fruits…

Gummi ads

From AdFreak, some strange ads for the Natural Confectionary Co. I think the last one is my favorite.

Poifull

I received my box of Poifull from my friend Michael who bought them for me in Japan in a set of assorted mini boxes. I’ve never seen these guys in my local Asian supermarkets, but I’m definitely going to start looking for them now. As you can see from the photo, they’re look like jelly…

Nerds Song Contest

From the folks at Nestle and Wonka, a Loss for Lyrics contest: Wonka’s new candy, Giant Chewy Nerds, has the Oompa Loompas so excited they are at a complete loss for words! Willy Wonka has launched a nationwide contest in the search for a new song to describe Giant Chewy Nerds. The Oompa Loompas and…

No more Kinder Surprise eggs in Germany

My first experience with a Kinder Surprise was when my dad brought one back for me from a business trip in Germany. This must have been a decade ago, yet I still remember the toy inside: a little fox (though I can no longer remember which one it was). photo from Wikipedia If you’ve never…

Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles

I bought this roll of Fruit Pastilles at the same time I bought a roll of Maynard’s Wine Gums. I wish I could report that these were better than the wine gums in roll form, but alas, I found them similarly uninspiring. The Fruit Pastilles boasted 25% fruit juice. Now. I wonder what they used…

Tootsie Roll Contest

Remember that line drawing commercial with the boy and the owl and how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? One… two-hoo… a-three… crunch! Tootsie Roll is running a “How Many Licks” Sweepstakes for a chance to win lots of prizes. The contest doesn’t end until July…
