Unusual Candy For Your Tree - Dill Pickle Candy Canes

The thing about these dill pickle candy canes is that I want them to also be really garlic heavy, but I don't want them to be garlic heavy at the same time. I love pickles that are garlic heavy, and I find it's a flavour lacking in the candy world. Most pickle flavoured snacks are more on the dill and vinegar side with a hint of garlic. Why they don't do this is obvious, garlic candy likely won't taste very good.  Probably the best way to enjoy this candy cane is to suck one end into a spike and skewer several olives onto it.

We're Starting A Review-A-Thon, And It's All About Japanese Kit Kat Bars - Kit Kat "Cranberry and Almond"

All this week we're going to be posting reviews for various Japanese Kit Kat bars. We've got the good, the bad and the wasabi. There are hundreds of Japanese Kit Kat bars that have been made, and we're going to try and taste them all. If we fail, it's the greatest battle one could lose.

Here's the first entry in our Japanese Kit Kat review-a-thon.

Last week we did a quick ranking of 5 of the bars we got, and you can check it out in this YouTube video.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to keep up with the many reviews we'll be posting all week.

On a secondary note, we've decided that we're going to re-work our YouTube video channel. We've started to notice that we're pumping out content that we're not really happy with (and you don't appear to be watching it anyways). To start, we've decided to do our Monday Morning Breakfast Thoughts monthly instead of weekly. We're also looking to cut back the number of fully produced videos each month,  but we may have more informal videos posted more regularly (depending on what we're up to). Make sure to check out our YouTube channel and subscribe to keep up with this content.

Ranking Kit Kat Bars

After visiting Japan the one thing I always come back with is a feeling of calm and tranquility, I also come back with a lot of Kit Kat bars.  I thought I would look at some of them and rank them from best to worst.

Next week we'll have the full reviews of each of these Kit Kat bars and more for a Japanese Kit Kat review-a-thon, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to follow along.


Candy In The Media - Christmas Edition

This is seriously one of the best Christmas candy commercials ever made. It's very simple, but still looks and feels great.

Unusual Candy For Your Tree - Macaroni and Cheese Candy Canes

For some odd reason, macaroni and cheese candy canes have become all the rage this year. Stores have been selling out of them at breakneck speed. I really want to love this candy cane, but I'm not so sure I will. The best way to enjoy this candy cane over the holidays, maybe dip it in your mashed potatoes.

Unusual Candy For Your Tree - Clam Candy Canes

I'm just going to start right off with the candy cane I'd least like to eat. The only reason I'd want to try one of these is to see how much they actually taste like clams (then I'd like choke into a bucket). The only way I could see these working is as an accompaniment to your festive bloody mary cocktail.

Candy In The Media - Sushi Fun Candy

I love the idea of making sushi candy. It's amazing the similarities between these two foods, as well as the amount of skill it takes to make them both.
