Swedish Fish: Why Are They Called That?

Swedish Fish – “A Friend You Can Eat” With a tagline like that, you can expect the history behind Swedish Fish to also be weird. For those who have been living under a rock, Swedish Fish are a gummy candy shaped like a fish. They are most famous for their red flavor, but they come…

Maynards Sour Cherry Blasters

Maynards Sour Cherry Blasters [Review]

Basically a throw-in when I ordered 3 sets of Maynards candies, I was skeptical of their Sour Cherry Blasters. Often times, cherry candies come off tasting more like cough syrup than an actual sweet.  Not only that, but there isn’t much variety to these; there is only one flavor contained with the package – cherry. That…

Maynards Fuzzy Peach

Maynards Fuzzy Peach [Review]

Maynards Fuzzy Peach is an all time candy, but one you may not have heard of here in the States. The reason? Maynards is only available in the UK and Canada (check out my review on their Wine Gums here). You know them though – they are the geniuses behind Sour Patch Kids and their proceeding…

Yo-Kai Watch Gummies

Yo-Kai Watch Gummies: For Fans Only?

Bazooka Candy Brands (makers of the gum most notably) have created a new candy for Yo-Kai Watch fans. I was intrigued when I saw them on the shelf at my local convenience store mainly because I had never heard of Yo-Kai Watch. How do they stack up against other popular gummies? More importantly, will non-Yo-Kai…

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen - Review

Haribo Bärchen-Pärchen [Review + Meaning!]

This is the second bag of Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. They caught my eye because I’ve never seen them in the U.S., and they had a giant Neu sticker on it, which made me think that they were, well, New. What does Bärchen-Pärchen mean? Google translate tells me that Bärchen-Pärchen means Bear Couple….

Haribo Orangina Pik - Review

Haribo – Orangina Pik [Review]

Today and Friday, I’ll review some Haribo gummies that I bought while in Switzerland. First up is Orangina P!k. I know Orangina is a fizzy orange drink that’s available in Europe. No idea what the P!k means (and why it’s not a Pik). Haribo, of course, is a candy brand that is found all over…

Nestle FruTips – Chinese Assortment

On Monday, I reviewed the mango, grapefruit, and lychee FruTips that I bought in China. Today, I’ll review their regular flavor assortment. The regular FruTips were the same size and texture as their specialized flavor counterparts, and they also contained lychee flavored jellies (white). You can refer to Monday’s review for my notes on texture…

Nestle FruTips – Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee

As previously mentioned, I’m way overdue for a review of Nestle FruTips from China. When I was in Shanghai this March, I bought of couple of fresh tubes to cover today and Friday. I’ll start with the Mango, Grapefruit, and Lychee tube. The FruTips were thumbnail-sized flat disks that were covered in gritty sugar sand….

Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices

Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices [Review]

Emma recently visited the Albanese gummi factory and brought back oodles of gummi treats, including this peg bag of Albanese Gummi Fruit Slices. I hope that Albanese is moving towards selling their gummies in peg bags with a wider distribution – I haven’t seen them in NC yet! The wedge-shaped gummies were lightly striated with…
