Skittles Chocolatey Eruption!

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

My initial assumption, upon seeing these in the store, was that these were going to be real chocolate, kind of like Smarties or M&Ms. Nope. They’re actually pretty similar to regular Skittles, only with chocolatey flavours rather than fruity ones. Real chocolate certainly would have been preferable, but then pretty much anything [...]

Kit Kat Chunky

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Generally speaking, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the “Chunky” line of candies – they’re fine, but not really a big improvement over the original bars, and the addition of sickly-sweet caramel or peanut butter in some of them tends to feel unnecessary. Kit Kat Chunky is, however, an exception. A sweet, [...]

Double Decker

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This is yet another British bar from the import store. This one actually makes me wish I lived in Britain; I’m not sure I’ve ever had this bar before, but I know I’ll be eating it again – even if it means a trek out to the import store and paying a bit more than [...]

Coffee Crisp

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

Coffee Crisp is another one of those bars that, though not particularly exciting, certainly has its place. Though I should mention that its motto (“makes a nice light snack”) is a tad misleading – it’s about the same as any other candy bar as far as its fat content and calorie count goes. Not that [...]

Cadbury Flake

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This is another bar that I used to enjoy eating every now and then, until it became almost impossible to find. It’s a shame, but it’s nice to know that if I ever feel like eating one I can still find it at an import shop (unlike, say, the tragically discontinued PB Max – oh [...]

Crunch Crisp

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

There was a time, a few years back, when new candy bars were a fairly regular occurrence. It was always exciting to walk into the store and see a brand new candy bar you’ve never heard of before. I guess at some point the candy manufacturers realized that they could make more money by releasing [...]

Kinder Surprise

Posted by: Michael In: Easter Candy

I recently found out that Kinder Surprise isn’t available in the U.S. thanks to a rule about food items containing non-food items inside of them. This strikes me as kind of sad. Growing up, Kinder Surprises were always the thing that I looked forward to the most every Easter. My parents would always get my [...]

Cadbury Fudge

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

In my experience, fudge is generally something that has to be eaten while it’s reasonably fresh. I’ve never had a prepackaged fudge that I’ve been particularly fond of; this, unfortunately, is no exception. Actually, this may just be the worst fudge that I’ve ever had.
Cadbury Fudge is, as the name implies, just a stick of [...]

Lion

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This is another British bar that I purchased at the import store I mentioned in my Time Out review. This one’s called Lion, and it’s essentially a denser version of a Mr. Big bar (which, I suppose, will mean little to most Americans as neither bar is available in the States, as far as I’m [...]

Big Turk

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This has always been a candy that, alongside stuff like Eat More and Bridge Mixture, I can’t say I fully understand. It’s one of those things you never actually see anyone eat, but always seems to be in there with the rest of the candy bars at the store. So who’s buying these? Older people, [...]
