Koala's March - Review

Lotte Koala’s March Cookies: The Same As Hello Panda?

Lotte Koala’s March Cookies are “chocolate¬†cr√®me filled cookies” that can be found in Asian grocery stores in America. I recently got a free box from the folks at MunchPak, along with Koala’s March competitors Hello Panda (which I reviewed already). In fact, those two candies are very similar; I’ll explain. The pillow-shaped cookies are imprinted…

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Caramallows

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Caramallows

I bought this box of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Caramallows last week. I was super excited to think that I’d caught a new product that resembled my beloved See’s Scotchmallows, but it turns out that they were around last year as well. The long, skinny box described them as “pillowy marshmallow bites with a layer…

Sour Skittles

Sour Skittles [Review]

I recently received a free box of treats from MunchPak (more details on that tomorrow), including this bag of Sour Skittles. They’re not a new addition to the Skittles line-up, but they do now feature green apple instead of lime. Sour Skittles Flavors: The other flavors were cherry, orange, lemon, and grape – the same…

Heath Pieces

North Carolina has a great chain of drive-thru restaurants, Cook-Out, that feature an elaborate variety of milkshakes. I like Heath bar bits in my Cook-Out milkshakes, so I jumped at the chance to buy these Heath Pieces when I saw them on the shelf. Heath Pieces are another extension of the Hershey’s Pieces line. For…

Roberts Ferry Nuts Co – Butter Toffee Almonds

Roberts Ferry Nuts Company is a California company that just started selling their wares online. To get the word out, they sent me free samples of their Butter Toffee Almonds for review. The almonds came in a clear standup pouch with a simple label. They were roasted almonds coated in a crunchy toffee shell. The…

Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond

I bought this Ritter Sport Winter Edition Caramelised Almond at Cost Plus World Market, along with last Friday’s Caramel-Orange. I was lucky to nab the last one of these that was on the shelf! This solid milk chocolate bar was generously embedded with bits of caramelized almonds. Those nuts brought a slightly crystallized crunch to…

See's Butterscotch Pecan Bar - Review

See’s Butterscotch Pecan Bar [Review]

The See’s Candies stand has returned to my local mall for the holidays! When I saw it, I had to pick up a few of my favorite Scotchmallows, which are currently available in Christmas tree shapes, and I got this Butterscotch Pecan Bar while I was there. The bar had a milk chocolate base, a…

Kasugai Ramune Gummi - Review

Kasugai Ramune Gummi: Asian Soda Candy [Review]

I usually buy my Kasugai gummies at Asian grocery stores, but I found this bag of ramune flavored gummies at a Cost Plus World Market. If you’re not familiar with ramune (not to be confused with ramen!), it’s a lemon-lime Asian soda that’s usually kept in a uniquely marble-stoppered bottle. Like all Kasugai gummies, these…

Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb

Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb [Review]

Remember when I posted about how weird the Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb bar sounded, and how I’d love to try it? Ask and you shall receive, at least when you’re a candy blogger! Sometimes… The folks at CyberCandy heard my plea and sent me a free sample of my very own Cadbury Cola Pretzel Honeycomb…

Milka Oreo

Milka Oreo [Review]

This Milka Oreo came to me via a visiting German student in the lab. It was a gift for the lab to share, so I couldn’t take it home to photograph in my usual set-up. Instead, I managed to snag some shots with my fancy new iPhone (finally gave up on my dumb phone when…
