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…

Panda Licorice Review

Panda Licorice – Raspberry [Review]

I recently picked up Panda Licorice – Raspberry for the first time at a local health food store. I had never heard of the brand, but I’m a sucker for raspberry licorice, so I opted for it over the Original Black flavor (also called Original Soft). The weird thing about Panda licorice is that it seems…

Haribo Orangina P!k

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). At any rate, it’s pretty clear that these are supposed to be…

Alcove Chocolates – Fleur de Pretzel

On Monday, I covered 3 flavors of Alcove Chocolates that I had received as free samples. Today, it’s time to write about another Alcove treat, their Fleur de Pretzel bar. They described it as “rich milk chocolate paired with crunchy new york [sic. They seem to be allergic to the shift key on their website.]…

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….

Bissinger’s Salt Caramels – Merlot and Chardonnay

I bought these Bissinger’s boozy salted caramels at a post-holiday sale at Southern Season. Merlot Salt Caramel was described as “red wine paired with a vintage merlot sea salt”, while Chardonnay Salt Caramel was, “Bissinger’s 300 year old caramel recipe, topped with barrel smoked chardonnay fleur de sel.” The chocolate caramels came in sets of…
