Singapore Coffee Maker Invented A Fluffy Cotton Candy Cloud Drips A ‘Rain’ Of Sugar Into A Coffee Cup

parsa__aram The Chinese coffee company Mellower has created a tempest in a teacup with their uniquely poetic “Sweet Little Rain” espresso drink. The primary feature of this concoction is a fluffy white cloud made of cotton candy that sits above a steaming Americano and melts little raindrops of sugar right into the cup. The bulk of the photos taken are from the Mellower Coffee Singapore... Source

REVIEW: Now and Later WTF and Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers WTF

If your taste buds like to play detective, there are two new mystery flavor candies from the Ferrara Candy Company — Now and Later WTF and Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers WTF. In these instances, the WTF doesn’t mean what the acronym has usually stood for — the World Taekwondo Federation. Instead, it asks, What The Flavor? Now and Later WTF consists of mixed fruit chews. Every piece is white, which, of course, gives no clues to what the flavors could be. It tastes as if there are four of them in th...

REVIEW: Reese’s Chocolate Lovers and Peanut Butter Lovers (2019)

I love me some Reese’s, but it’s been on a bit of a cold streak with me lately. I can’t say I’ve “loved” any of the Reese’s products I’ve reviewed recently, (Thins, Good Humor Bars, Whipped Topping) and it’s left me wondering if I even still “love” the iconic brand I grew up on. Previous disappointments aside, I figured there was no way Reese’s Chocolate Lovers and Peanut Butter Lovers Cups could let me down, right? Reese’s Chocolate Lovers I was tentative about these. I ranted in my Reese’s...

How frequently do Skittles packs contain an identical payload?

Once in 468 packs, found Eric Farmer. So, on 12 January of this year, I started buying boxes of packs of Skittles. This past week, “only” 82 days, 13 boxes, 468 packs, and 27,740 individual Skittles later, I found the following identical 2.17-ounce packs: Many excellent graphs in the report. I'm shocked and appalled by the distribution of total number of skittles per pack: there's a fair chance you'll get anywhere between 55 and 65 (though in fairness there's about a 2 in 3 chance of getting 59,...

Mars Wrigley internship

For the second year in a row, Mars Wrigley is offering the World’s Sweetest Internship. One lucky summer-job seeker will spend eight to 12 weeks on Goose Island in Chicago taking on social media and marketing duties for the brand. Of course, there’ll also be a bit of “quality control” on the side. But the real perk of this paid internship is the one year’s worth of free candy you’ll get at the end, which is quite a treat given the vast catalog of sweets that Mars Wrigley produces — M&Ms, Sni...

REVIEW: Kit Kat Cones

What are Kit Kat Cones? Entering into the frozen treat category just in time for the warmer weather, these Kit Kat-themed Drumsticks offer vanilla frozen dairy dessert with a chocolatey coating and a fudge core placed atop a crispy sugar cone. How are they? Despite being as enjoyable as any other Drumstick flavor, I couldn’t help but feel a little let down by these. Although each component was good and made a tasty dessert when combined, none were able to capture the experience of eating ...

REVIEW: Hazelnut Spread M&M’s

What are Hazelnut Spread M&M’s? M&M’s debuts its newest flavor which features a hazelnut spread center covered in milk chocolate all encased in a colorful candy shell. And yes it’s a riff on Nutella which is synonymous with hazelnut spread in most people’s minds. Look at the container on the package that Blue is holding! A clear jar. Verrrrrry interesting. Basically, these are bootleg Nutella M&M’s. How are they? These were announced way back in September which means a long time to get exc...

Ekulu – “Half Alive” & “Emulation”

REVIEW: Reese’s Thins Peanut Butter Cups

What are Reese’s Thins? New Reese’s Thins are not Hershey’s attempt at a “diet” food. I was actually dumb enough to think that may have been the case for a second. A smarter person would have realized that these are simply thinner peanut butter cups. How are they? I’d find it a bit disingenuous to whine about any Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. They’re arguably the single greatest piece of candy on Earth, so you’d probably roll your eyes if I went on a long diatribe about how baffled I am by Re...

REVIEW: Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake

What is Dove Promises White Chocolate Carrot Cake? It’s Dove’s smooth white chocolate with artificial carrot cake flavoring and graham flavored crisps. The first thing that pops into my mind when it comes to “crisps” is rice cereal. However, in the ingredients list they’re not labeled as “crisps.” Instead, they’re listed as “cookie pieces,” which sounds exactly 44 times more appealing than “crisps,” and it’s what should’ve been printed on the front of the packaging. How is it? I can tell yo...

Japanese Squishy Shiba Inu Marshmallows Are The Cutest Way To Level Up Your Hot Chocolate

Japanese online retailer Felissimo (previously) has a reputation for cute and quirky goods, but their YOU+MORE! series (a play on the pronunciation of “humor” in Japanese) has carved out quite the line of Shiba inu good. Now it seems they’ve dubbed the popular breed as a worthy successor to their hit cat marshmallows with these adorable and squishy Shiba Inu-shaped marshmallows! Source

REVIEW: White Chocolate Marshmallow M&M’s

What are White Chocolate Marshmallow M&M’s? Because a bag of novelty-flavored M&M’s is easily stuffed into a bright plastic egg basket, Mars is dropping another installment of its special edition Easter flavors! This time, it’s white chocolate with marshmallow. How are they? You know how when you see cooking show contestants using the same batter/dough/base for multiple items, they are mostly likely not going to win? That’s what these M&M’s taste like. They’re essentially the same as the ba...

How to Find the Right Boiling Point for Candy Making

Candy thermometers are a MUST when it comes to making different types of delicious desserts. Recipes for candy making or sugar syrups, like fudge, fondant, toffee or butterscotch always need some sort of thermometer to help with the cooking process. However you should always test your thermometer periodically by placing it in boiling water.  At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees F/ 100 degrees C. If your candy thermometer reads below or above this number, you’ll need to buy a new one or adju...

Valentine’s Day

I saw some pretty windows decorated for Valentine’s Day here in Paris. They have learned it is a way to make money along with Halloween. Hearts made of chocolate in a chocolate shop. Lauderée, the famous tea shop, had the best windows. Heart shaped macarons. Lovely decorated boxes. Another window.

REVIEW: Internationally Inspired Peanut M&M’s (Flavor Vote 2019)

The flavor vote is back! Not the O.G. one for Lay’s Potato Chips but for M&M’s, and it’s the third go round. Peanut M&M’s were a part of the first one where Chili Nut reigned supreme and last year for the Crunchy rendition where Mint came out on top. This year, the vote has an international theme with the flavors associated with specific countries around the world. They are Mexican Jalapeno, English Toffee, and Thai Coconut. Mexican Jalapeno Let’s first go south of the border for Mexican J...

153 years of uninterrupted Sweethearts candies, interrupted

There will not be fresh Sweethearts candies this Valentine's Day. Known as "conversation starters," these candies have always tasted like a chewable antacid or gas relief pills. Never have they helped me find love. Next year in candyland!
