Haribo Brixx - Review

Haribo Brixx [Review]

I bought this bag of Haribo Brixx at a dollar store. The same one where I bought Haribo Clown Fish and Pico-Balla. Thankfully, they weren’t as terrible as the others, but they definitely aren’t my favorite Haribo product. The Brixx are very cute little rectangles with six smaller white rectangles of fondant running through the…

Candilicious Katy Perry and Trolli Statement

I had no idea Katy Perry’s new California Gurls video was crazy candy-filled until my friend Katie shared it with me. I won’t embed it here since it’s not entirely work appropriate… And via Jezebel, Trolli felt it necessary to issue a statement about the video saying that their gummi bears would never be so…

Kit Kat Ginger Ale - Review

Japanese Kit Kat – Ginger Ale Flavor!

Leave it to the Japanese to decide that Ginger Ale would make a good Kit Kat flavor. I’d read reviews of Ginger Ale Kit Kats on other sites, but it sounded so weird that I still really wanted to try one for myself. Lucky for me, there was one in my free sample box from…

Kit Kat Royal Milk Tea - Review

Japanese Kit Kat: Royal Milk Tea Flavor!

I got a bunch of Japanese Kit Kats in my free sample box from Tsunami.hk. For some reason, Kit Kats in Japan have taken on a life on their own, with dozens of always available and seasonal/limited edition flavors, some of which are quite weird. Today’s review is of the first of the lot: Kit…

World Cup Sponsorship Woes

Via Chocolate Reviews, here’s a World Cup-centric UK Kit Kat commercial. The problem? Mars has shelled out some big bucks to be official sponsor of England’s Football Association, and they are not pleased with what they perceive to be Kit Kat’s treading on their expensive ground!

Kabaya Nameraka Pudding Chocolate

I recently got a generous shipment of free samples from Tsunami.hk, a Hong Kong company that ships Japanese and Asian goods to the US. They’ve got an impressive and ever-changing selection of Japanese food and drink, including lots of candy! I don’t read Japanese. Fortunately, Tsunami translated the product name for me: Kabaya Nameraka Pudding…

Pretzel M&Ms Commercial

Via AdFreak, here’s the new commercial for Mars’s new Pretzel M&M’s. Kinda makes you think which orifice they plan on using to get that pretzel in there… No wonder poor Orange is freaked out!

REVIEW: Jelly Belly Cocktail Classics!

I think Jelly Belly’s new Cocktail Classics have an awesome tagline: “It’s five o’clock somewhere.” Their press release had another great line, “All the flavors and none of the hangover.” I’m a cocktail person (I’m too wimpy for beer’s bitterness), so I was excited to see what Jelly Belly’s jelly bean mixologists out together. Jelly…

Ritter Sport Summer 2010 – Stracciatella

This is the last of Ritter Sports’ 2010 summer flavors that I picked up in Europe. The other two, Peach-Passionfruit Yogurt and Wildberry Yogurt, were reviewed earlier in the week. Stracciatella is a flavor of Italian gelato that’s analogous to chocolate chip ice cream. I have to admit I didn’t try stracciatella gelato while I…
