See's Scotchmallow

See’s Scotchmallow [Review]

Surprise! I’ve got one more See’s review for y’all. An extension of last week’s See’s week, I guess. I’ve breezed over the See’s Scotchmallow before, and it’s near the top of my list of favorite candies. It’s about time it warranted a full review. You can get Scotchmallows by the box, as part of an…

Caffex Coffee Marshmallows

I received a trio of Caffex‘s coffee marshmallows as free samples. They’re not something that I would’ve picked out myself, as I’ve been off caffeine for years and thus have no need for energy candies. There was something slightly alarming about the warning on the package, “Not for minors and pregnant women.” But coffee marshmallows…

Chocolate Covered Peeps [Review]

In general, I don’t believe in buying seasonal treats when they’re actually in season. They taste great throughout the year, and they’re cheaper when you buy them in post-holiday sales! Just Born was the buzz of the candy/food blogosphere when they announced their chocolate-covered Peeps. I wasn’t going to review them since Easter is long…

Peeps – Chocolate Mousse Marshmallow Cats

Yet another treat from my NCA Halloween goodie bag: Chocolate Mousse Marshmallow Cat Peeps! I write about Peeps a lot, but I’ve never actually formally reviewed them. I feel like they’re a candy that’s so ubiquitous that people already know all about them. I decided to give these guys a review – if a short…

Bubu Lubu

Over spring break, the Yale Concert Band went on tour to Mexico. I, unfortunately, was not able to join them. On the plus side, kind friends brought me back Mexican candy, and their trip reminded me of all the Mexican candy in my stash (bought back home in Austin, TX and in a little candy…

See’s Assorted Chocolates Week – Day 3

Today marks the conclusion of Rosa eats her way through an entire box of See’s on her own because it’s delicious and free. I began my journey on Monday, continued on Wednesday, and today, the finish line is in sight. I’m not sure what makes the California brittle Californian. It’s a hard toffee with almonds…

Russian Candy IV

Russian Candies IV

First 3 Parts on Russian Candy can be found here: Russian Candy I Russian Candy II Russian Candy III More reviews from the ginormous box of Russian candy sent by my friend Leslie nearly a year ago. Don’t worry; the tasting was done back when they were more fresh out of the box (though I…

Len Libby Chocolates

Back in March, over spring break, a few friends and I visited Len Libby while we were in Maine. Because it’s not every day you’re within driving distance of a life-size chocolate moose. Meet Lenny (and a mama bear and her cub made from solid dark chocolate): Though we’d dropped in just to see Lenny,…

Idaho Spud

If I remember correctly, Steve Almond wrote about tracking down the Idaho Spud in Candy Freak and watches them as they are made. He then eats one and hates it. You’d think that would have been enough to stop me from paying way too much for one at an overpriced candy boutique that charges a…
