Yogen Fruz Smoothies - Blueberry Breeze

Posted by: Michael In: Fruity Candy

I’m not sure how prevalent they are in the States, but go to pretty much any mall in Canada, and you’ll find a Yogen Fruz. For the uninitiated, they sell frozen yogurt, usually mixed in with some sort of fruit. It’s not bad, if you like that sort of thing.
A pack of Yogen [...]

Dairy Milk - Cranberry and Granola

Posted by: Michael In: Chocolate

This is a British import, and I don’t know if it’s some kind of limited edition (I’ve never seen it before) or just a new part of the Dairy Milk line in the U.K., but it’s quite good. You might even say it’s… berry good (well, there goes my credibility).

3 Color Coconut

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

I’m generally a pretty big fan of coconut in candy – Bounty, which is essentially a superior version of Mounds, is one of my favourites. But there are those who feel differently, such as Steve Almond, who described coconut as having a “creepy dead skin texture” (in his very entertaining book, Candyfreak). I [...]

Chunky

Posted by: Michael In: Chocolate

Chunky isn’t sold in Canada and isn’t exactly a high-profile bar, so I hadn’t even heard of it when it was memorably referenced in an episode of Seinfeld (“I know the chunky that left these Chunkies!”). Of course, at that point I had to try it, and I do recall being somewhat disappointed in [...]

Necco Wafers

Posted by: Michael In: Sugary Candy

I think with a lot of the foods we like – candy in particular – nostalgia can be a pretty powerful force. We all have a handful of foods that we enjoy despite the fact that, deep down, we know aren’t very good. Perhaps they’re associated with pleasant childhood memories, or maybe years [...]

Lindt Hot Pralines

Posted by: Michael In: Chocolate

Though the combination of chili and chocolate is thousands of years old, it’s never quite reached a wide level of acceptance. I think for most people, the idea of combining spiciness and dessert is just a little bit too bizarre. It’s too bad, because done right, chili and chocolate can be surprisingly good.

Terry’s Chocolate Orange - Mini Segments

Posted by: Michael In: Chocolate

Terry’s Chocolate Orange are those fun, baseball-sized chocolates that you get to slam onto the counter in order to separate all the little segments. They are surprisingly delicious (I say surprisingly because, though the combination of chocolate and orange doesn’t exactly sound like a slam dunk, it actually works a lot better than you’d [...]

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, [...]
