Dubble Bubble Gumballs

When the folks at Gumball.com asked me to review some free gumballs and a gumball machine, I thought, “Why not?” I can’t remember the last time I actually had a gumball, but I do remember wishing my parents would buy me one when I was a kid. For the record, my tiger parents never did……

Huevitos

Huevitos was another Ricolino’s candy that I picked up at a local Hispanic grocery. They were touted as new, though Cybele said she had them last year. The packaged described them as “candy coated chocolate flavor eggs.” “Chocolate flavor” is a marketing/packaging red flag. It means that there’s no actual cocoa butter inside. These looked nice, like…

World Market Toffee Caramel Milk Chocolate

I’m working my way through Cost Plus World Market’s store brand of chocolate. Monday, I reviewed the Strawberry and Champagne Dark Chocolate. Today, we’ve got the Toffee Caramel Milk Chocolate.

Guest post: ChocoTense Saturn

Today we’ve got a guest post from my favorite in-the-Netherlands ex-pat, Neil! ~Rosa Greetings again from the soggy Netherlands, dear ZOMG, Candy! readers. Today’s post is about a 150 gram bar I found at a local discount store, Wibra. Wibra is good for generic 1 Euro utensils, deeply discounted name brand toiletries, socks, and an odd…

Hissee Fit Snake Spray – Cherry Chase

It is definitely not something that I would have picked up on my own. Spray/liquid candy is a weird genre. It was basically a tube of liquid candy with a little squirting nozzle attachment…

ISS Oh Yeah! Bar

I got this Oh Yeah! bar sample at Duke Recreation‘s open house. Gotta love well punctuated food brands! The wrapper promised chocolate, caramel, and peanuts. Two of the three were readily visible upon unwrapping the bar; it was completely covered in half peanuts and coated in chocolates. The nuts were dry and crunchy with a…

Cadbury Choclair – Blueberry

I found these Cadbury Choclairs in the Chinese equivalent of a mini-mart. I didn’t know exactly what to expect – based on the packaging, I thought that they would be blueberry-flavored chocolate. Instead, they turned out to be little caramels with a blueberry flavored center. It looks like I wound up with the blueberry version…
