REVIEW: Reese’s Snack Cake

What are Reese’s Snack Cakes? Each snack consists of a chocolate cake layer topped with Reese’s peanut butter creme and covered in milk chocolate. How are they? When I unwrapped my package of Reese’s Snack Cakes, I was expecting a take on a Hostess CupCake or Zinger: a supple, airy sponge slicked with icing. What I found looked more like a candy bar: two chocolate-coated rectangles nestled in a cardboard sleeve, compact and entirely coated with milk chocolate. Intrigued by the snack’s appe...

REVIEW: Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate Meltaway Roses

What are Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate Meltaway Roses? Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Hershey’s has given us Kisses with a meltaway chocolate center, wrapped in rose-print foil with green plumes. (“Plumes” is the official name of the little strips of paper, but if I have to explain it, it’s easier just to call them strips of paper.) How are they? These are certainly more interesting than standard Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Kisses. If you simply chomp them, they are much softer. The shell...

REVIEW: Key Lime Pie M&M’s

Scheduled for a spring release, Key Lime Pie M&M’s made an early appearance at my local gas station in Pennsylvania. Punxsutawney Phil assures me that this is a sign we are in for an early spring, so what better way to celebrate than by digging into these lime-flavored white chocolate M&M’s? As a fan of both real white chocolate and last year’s Orange Vanilla Cream M&M’s, I was excited to try out this new citrus-inspired treat. Larger than your standard plain variety, Key Lime Pie M&M’s have an...

REVIEW: Reese’s Mallow-top Peanut Butter Cups

It’s the most wonderful time of year for junk foodies. Post-Christmas clearance candies mingle near Valentine’s Day conversation hearts, while Easter specialties gradually inch into the seasonal aisle like budding spring flowers. At the same time, highly-anticipated new products from our favorite brands emerge to ring in the New Year. A new and limited time spring offering, Reese’s Mallow-top Peanut Butter Cups have been at the top of my wish list, so I was thrilled to find them early. (With th...

Razzles History: Novel Chew Invented by Brethren Chemist

Razzles as they appeared after adding multiple flavors. A candy that is first candy, and then gum, is a special kind of Wonka-like experience. Not Wonka-like because of its provenance, but because of its ambition. Razzles are not only sweets and taste, but technology and sensation. Something happens. They do something. They are sort of transformative, in the way that Pop Rocks crackle, Zots explode, Freshen Ups squirt or Nik-L-Nip bottles pour. To an 8-year-old, they are genius. In tasting the...

REVIEW: Snickers Crisp Black Rice Wafer and Snickers Crisp Purple Sweet Potato Wafer

What is Snickers Crisp Black Rice Wafer and Snickers Crisp Purple Sweet Potato Wafer? Snickers recently released the least Snickers-y Snickers ever. It’s a 6-layer wafer bar! It’s from China! Ground floor – crispy wafer. Second floor – black rice or purple sweet potato flavored creme filling. Third floor – wafer. Fourth floor – caramel peanut creme filling. Fifth floor – wafer. Sixth floor – chocolate coating! There hasn’t been a wafer cookie Snickers yet, nor anything with this many laye...

REVIEW: Snickers Peanut Brownie Squares

What is Snickers Peanut Brownie? It’s a candy bar featuring individual squares with a luscious caramel layer and a chewy peanut-brownie filling all coated in milk chocolate. How is it? The Snickers name carries a lot of weight to it. It’s supposedly the world’s best-selling candy bar, and in a decade, it will be an entire century old!!! That is a big shadow for any candy bar, let alone one in the same family. So, I guess I’m trying to soften the blow that this is, well, just okay. It is a ...

Dynamic Duo

Can true harmony be found in a single sweet bite? That’s the theory behind Sweetduet, touted as “a luscious duo of chocolate and fruit for the mindful snacker.” Treading the fine line between decadent and dietetic, the results make no compromises on either side. While the packaging reads like health food, the taste is pure indulgence. Dates are at the heart of this dulcet symphony, and not just when dipped in dark chocolate. Date nectar is actually the sweetener of choice, imparting notes of am...

What are Ghirardelli White Chocolate Sugar Cookie Squares? The latest addition to this year’s sugar cookie craze comes from none other than San Francisco’s own Ghirardelli Chocolate. Ghirardelli’s stocking stuffer-ready interpretation of the quintessential holiday treat combines rich white chocolate with cookie bits and festive sprinkles. How are they?

REVIEW: Kit Kat Duos Mocha + Chocolate

What is Kit Kat Duos Mocha + Chocolate? After last year’s introduction of Mint + Dark Chocolate, Kit Kat Duos are back with a second flavor, Mocha + Chocolate. It’s described as crisp wafers in mocha crème with coffee bits and chocolate. How is it? A small disclaimer that I do love, love, love coffee. Like I can’t function in the morning without a large cup to get me going. Then maybe I’ll have another to counteract the mid-day slump. Sometimes one more is calling my name so I can finish o...

REVIEW: Hershey’s Sugar Cookie Kisses

For as long as I can remember, the Hershey’s Kisses have been literally ringing in the holiday season. But as iconic as that commercial is, I have no reason to buy those red- and green-wrapped Kisses. That may have been exciting in the 1980s and ’90s, but in the 21st century, we like seasonal flavors to go with our seasonal wrappers. Fortunately, Hershey’s has done exactly that by gifting us with its new Sugar Cookie Kisses, described as “sugar cookie flavored white creme with cookie pieces.” W...

News from the year 2051: The history of sending Halloween candy down a PVC pipe

Oftentimes, tradition becomes so instilled in us that it feels like it's always been that way. Not so, with the annual pvc pipe Halloween candy chute. There was a time when trick-or-treaters would come right to the door and residents would hand, yes, use their HANDS to give candy to the children. — Read the rest

"Americans are split on whether children should be allowed to trick-or-treat on Halloween this year and whether they will hand out candy, given the coronavirus pandemic."

"According to a YouGov poll, 30 percent of Americans say they plan to hand out treats to trick-or-treaters, while 26 percent say they usually do but won’t this year. Another 35 percent, who I can only surmise are either unable to give out treats or just extremely grumpy, said they never give out treats.... Twenty percent of American adults say that ghosts definitely exist, according to a YouGov poll conducted last week. About a quarter say they probably exist, 39 percent say they probably or def...

[ ] Did you know Sour Patch Kids were first called Mars Men? And that Snickers is called Marathon Bar in Britain to avoid confusion with the slang word knickers?

What are White Chocolate Sugar Cookie M&M’s? M&M’s is taking a softer approach to the Christmas creep this year. “Sugar cookies are year-round favorites, right? They’re sugar cookie flavored. No big deal. Just a little red & green sugar on the bag…oh, and Red’s wearing a little Santa hat. Shhh, it’s okay. Just buy the small pack. We know it’s too early, but you want to try it, don’t you? Yeah, put down that candy corn…” This is one of those flavors that seems like it should have existed alre...

"A Man Died After Eating a Bag of Black Licorice Every Day."

"That habit caused his potassium levels to drop precipitously, prompting a cardiac arrest, according to the study. He never regained consciousness after his collapse and died about 24 hours after he arrived at Massachusetts General Hospital.... Aspiring doctors are taught in medical school that black licorice contains glycyrrhizic acid, a plant extract that is often used as a sweetener in candies and other foods and can lead to dangerously low potassium levels if it is consumed in high enough do...

REVIEW: Hershey’s Vampire Kisses

What are Hershey’s Vampire Kisses Just in time for the Halloween season, Hershey’s has introduced Vampire Kisses, a variation of its classic milk chocolate candy. Along with the chocolate, it’s filled with strawberry-flavored crème. How are they? The milk chocolate shell is the same tangy butyric acid-infused Hershey’s chocolate to which American consumers are accustomed. I’ve recently heard the flavor described as “yogurty,” which is all I can think of when tasting it now. According to t...
