A Cool Candy Thing

This is another example of candy and toys that doesn't make sense to me.  Why would you want to make crayons that look like candy.  Wouldn't you just be tempted to take a bite, and wouldn't that bite be very disappointing?  Unless crayons taste good, I can't say I've ever sampled one.

Lemon Creation

They're scattering all over the place!!! Imagine you cut open a lemon and out spilled dozens of gummy bears.  Then imagine that all of these gummy bears made a run for it.  That would be the best, and worst day of my life.

This Week In Candy

At this point I would imagine that most of you are sitting at your computer polishing off your Easter candy, with a bit of a chocolate/sugar buzz going on.  You might have a huge stash of treats waiting to be enjoyed over the next week or so, or you're waiting for stores to open to take advantage of the discount Easter candy.  Either way, I hope the bunny delivered everything you wanted, and I hope you had some good times with friends and family.

On another note, I'm going to be heading back to Canada for a while this summer.  I'm going to take advantage of this time to fill up on nostalgic foods and treats that remind me how cool it is to be a Canadian.  It's funny, I've been away for such a long time that I'm actually starting to forget some of the classic Canadian treats.  Let me know of any Canadian treats you think I shouldn't miss when I go back home.

Mustard and Ketchup Review

All we're really missing at this point is a hot dog.  Whenever I think of these two flavours, hot dogs are the first thing that pop into my head, particularly those inexpensive hot dogs from IKEA.  I always know what I'm getting when I buy one of those hot dogs, but for some reason I always come back for more.  Fortunately today's review didn't taste like IKEA hot dogs, although I'm sure I'd buy a bag of chips that did.

Candy News

Here are some pretty fun Easter ideas that the Easter Bunny might be trying this year.

What do you do when Easter is long over, and you're still craving Peeps (apparently they might continue selling them all year but if you can't find them)?  You can make your own.

Gummy bear sex goes wrong, and it ends with hospitalization and burns all over the body.

Speaking of sex, if you're looking for a little help after your gummy bear debacle, why not have some Viagra dosed ice cream?

If you still have problems in your relationship, apparently snacks may hold the key to fixing them, provided you don't pour scalding hot melted candy on the one you love.

Sometimes the name of your product can lead to problems on the global market, and here's a few examples.

Here's the concept for this Japanese game show, there's a room, and several objects in the room are in fact made of chocolate, now you have to find out which objects are made of chocolate by biting them.  This is a great idea.

Although this article claims that it's a recipe for "sprinkles flavoured ice cream", it's really a recipe for sugary cereal flavoured ice cream, and that's even cooler.

Every year there's a photo list of film scenes that have been re-created using Peeps, and every year I love it. And if film scenes aren't enough, here's a few internet Memes done in Peeps as well.

Friday Candy Video


Not enough people take the time to thank the Easter Bunny any more.  It's as if after the bunny leaves we just clam up and start the sugar high.  Well I found this old M&M's commercial that pays tribute to being polite to our favorite candy delivering rodent.

Classic/Creative Easter Candy Advertising

I don't think I like the idea of the Easter Bunny being portrayed as lazy.  This advertisement is basically saying, "hey, I didn't feel like giving you a variety of treats this year for Easter, instead I'll just stop at Walmart and pick you up a couple of bars".

I found this ad here.

A Cool Easter Candy Thing

It seems that every holiday has some kind of pooping candy dispenser. Although I think of all of the holidays Easter is probably the most appropriate.  First of all, the main commercial character that represents the holiday is a bunny (sorry Jesus), and bunnies do poop all over the place.  Secondly, the main attraction of Easter is to search out chocolate prizes hidden all over the place, and frankly poop is always hiding all over the place (the resemblance of chocolate and poop is also noted).  So really this toy is very appropriate to this holiday, and makes the perfect gift for anyone.

Other than all the chocolate, my favorite thing about Easter is the signifier that spring is here.  Nature starts to bloom, ice cream can be consumed, and the outdoors is habitable once again.  This photo, from our sister site bewarethecheese.com really screams springtime to me.  It reminds me how well nice weather, and tasty candy go together this time of year.
