Mamba Duos

These Mamba Duos were free samples that I snagged at Sweets and Snacks along with Monday’s Mamba Sours. From their Amazon listing, it looks like they were a limited edition Mamba flavor. Fittingly enough, there were two flavors of Duos, and two flavors in each Duo. The wrappers were decorated with funny-looking Frankenstein fruits. Like the…

Mini Chewy SweeTarts

I used to love SweeTarts when I was a kid. My parents used to buy me a big roll of them to keep me quiet on long car rides and such, so I think about them with fondness. Nestle was handing out free samples of these Mini Chewy SweeTarts at Sweets and Snacks. I don’t…

Kazoozles - Now Called Sweetart Ropes

Wonka Kazoozles – Strawberry Melon Flavor [Review]

UPDATE: Kazoozles are NOT discontinued, they have just had their name changed. They are now called Sweetarts Ropes. I got this bag of Wonka Kazoozles as a free sample from the Nestle booth at Sweets and Snacks. It was strawberry melon-flavored “delickoricious chewy candy”. Delickoricious is a ridickoricious word.   I’m not sure how close…

Chimes Ginger Chews – Mango

Chimes Ginger Chews Mango – Review This bag of mango flavored Chimes Ginger Chews were in my free swag bag at Sweets and Snacks. I didn’t visit their booth at the Expo because I don’t particularly care for ginger candy – they remind me too much of the herbal Asian remedies my mother forced me…

Warheads Sour Chewy Cubes

Original Warheads hard candies made their splash on the U.S. market when I was a kid. My friends and I used to compete to see how many we could stand to hold in our mouths at once and – more importantly – how long we could keep them there as their sour coating burned holes into…

Shurms Caramel Apple Soft Candy Chews

One of my favorite Halloween candies are Tootsie’s Caramel Apple pops, so I gladly accepted the chance to review free samples of Shurms Caramel Apple Soft Candy Chews. They were definitely unlike anything I’ve ever had before. The individually wrapped chews were gorgeous to behold, a thick, luscious looking layer of caramel atop a glowing green…

Au'some Giga Bites - Review

Au’some Giga Bites: Your Social Candy?

Au’some was promoting these Giga Bites at their booth at Sweets and Snacks. I got free samples of one of each flavor to review. Au’some is trying to market these as “Your social candy.” The back has a link to their Facebook page, and the name and flavors are techy-tinged. All of the candies were…

Starburst Flavor Morph - Review

Starburst Flavor Morph: Changing for Good?

Starburst Flavor Morph is a new-ish addition to the Starburst line. Cybele covered them back in November, but I didn’t get mine until very recently, both as free samples from CandyFavorites.com and from the press room at Sweets and Snacks. Though they’ve been out for at least six months, my package still called them “New!”…
