Toffifay aka Toffifee [Review]

I bought a 4-pack of Toffifay from the newsstand on Chapel Street near school. They were terribly stale, as they had probably been sitting on the shelf for ages, but they were still tasty, a testament to this terrific trio of flavors. More recently, I saw these at Wal-Mart in a pack of 15 and…

Asian candies I

I am Asian, so you will be reading about a lot of Asian candy. Consider this part I of an open-ended series. Lotte Cafe Coffee chewing gum This gum tasted like weak coffee with too much sugar and cream. The flavor didn’t last very long, and once it was gone, the gum took on an…

Bold Fruit Smoothie flavored Jolly Ranchers

Bold Fruit Smoothie Jolly Ranchers

I like Jolly Ranchers because I’m neurotic and impatient – I crunch up my hard candies instead of waiting for them to dissolve, so they don’t last very long. Fortunately, Jolly Ranchers don’t crunch very well, so I’m forced to savor them. And Bold Fruit Smoothie flavored Jolly Ranchers are, for the most part, worth…

Candicraft edible ink and paper

I came across a package of Candicraft edible ink and paper at my local Dollar Tree. It was the last one (that I could find, at least), so of course I had to snatch it up. I didn’t expect it to taste great, but it looked like it would be lots of fun. The Candicraft…

Jocalat by Larabar

According to Larabar’s website, these bars used to be called Maya bars. They’ve replaced the cocoa nibs in Maya bars with ground cocoa beans for a smoother texture and renamed the result. The Jocalat name sounds swankier (because we’re not sure how to pronounce it), and it lets Larabar use an accent breve (it’s amazing…

Jones Soda Co. Candy – Green Apple

Jones Soda Co. is probably most infamous for their Thanksgiving sodas that come in flavors like Turkey & Gravy, Cranberry, and Brussels Sprouts. I don’t know if I’m adventurous enough to try those, but when I saw Jones Soda Co. Carbonated Candy (BUY) while standing in line at the checkout aisle, I picked up a…

Limited Edition Starburst Retro

I found these in a display case along with the Limited Edition Carnival Skittles (BUY) at the Dollar Tree. They were tucked away in a corner, so I nearly walked out without seeing them. The cashier probably wondered why I got went through the line twice, both times to buy just candy. The packaging on…

Original Snaps – A snap decision with tragic consequences

I spotted this bag on a candy display in Michael’s. I’d never seen them before, so I thought Original Snaps (BUY) would be a great review candidate, even though I couldn’t tell exactly what they were. Since the store was closing and the cashiers were shutting down their stations, I was in a hurry to…

Cinnabon Cinnamon Pecan Roll

I’m not a big fan of nuts. Their texture is all weird, and they get stuck in your teeth. I’ll eat them in candy bars or brownies or covered in chocolate or even honey roasted, but I won’t actively enjoy them. I am also not a fan of super sweet things. For example, I like…
