Boston Fruit Slices

I stole an assortment of Boston Fruit Slices from my friend John, who got them in a giant food gift basket from some I-banking or consulting firm that was trying to recruit him. I wish being a psych major came with perks like that. The best I’ve gotten is Dunkin Donuts at our neuroscience lab…

Chocolate Cocktails

I (finally) turn 21 on Saturday. Being born in September has meant that I’m a bit young for my grade, so I’ve grown up watching my friends get to things (drive, vote, buy booze) before I can. But on Saturday, I’ll be all caught up, and all the age landmarks after 21 are the less-looked…

Nestle Munchies and After Eight

Nestle Munchies and After 8’s are UK treats that are similar to more well-known and more widely available candies. The ones I bought are unique because they’re cube shaped and come in a roll/log, making them more portable and convenient. They’re great for sharing, for portion control, for stretching out your snacking by forcing you…

I have awesome timing

Of course my traffic would triple the day I announce I’m taking a week off because my computer died. Forget time off; I’m capitalizing on my good StumpleUpon fortune. I’ll be posting as usual (my roommate doesn’t know it yet, but she’s going to be very understanding and sharing), so all you new readers, stick…

Computer issues

Dear readers, My computer, after three and a half years of plodding along, finally died on Tuesday. I stuck into my roommate’s room to use her computer to write this (Hi, Catherine!). I’m in the process of choosing/getting a new one. In the meantime, zomgcandy.com will be taking a mini-break, hopefully of no longer than…

Chocolate calendar backlog

I unpacked my mini chocolate page-a-day calendar from summer storage and am now full of chocolate tidbits. Here are a few good ones: “In 2006, Chocolate Russian Roulette candy featured twelve chocolate bullets you can bite into. Eleven bullets contain praline centers, but one had a hot chili filling.” I think that’s so creative. And…

Café Tasse Bars

When I was Cambridge over the summer, I walked past this tea shop nearly every time I went to the city centre marketplace. On my last day, I finally went in and bought this small selection of chocolates by Cafe Tasse (I think it means coffee cup in French. Man, I haven’t taken French in…

Swiss Petite Fruits

In addition to the malted milk balls I reviewed last week, I also got free samples of Swiss Petite Fruits from Oh Nuts!, per my request. The tiny fruit candies looked so cute and tasty on the website that I just had to see them in person. Honestly, I found myself disappointed at how they…

Wham – Original Raspberry Flavor

In the US, Wham is probably best known for “Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go).” In the UK, Wham is also the name of a fairly ubiquitous “tongue tingling chew bar.” It’s super cheap (about 10-15 pence, or 20-30 cents) and seems to be similar to an Air Head. But what is this Super…
