This Week In Candy

It's a bit of a crazy mixed up day today. I can't really explain why, but I just feel like there's so much going on, and nothing seems to be in order. Maybe writing out our plans for the week on this very blog will help me sort everything out.  That or it might just overwhelm me and send me back to bed for the rest of the day.

This week we have our regular posts, our Candy Thing on Wednesday, and Candy in the Media on Friday.  We're also going to be posting a new episode of Junk Fud On The Road, co-hosted by Allison.  This week's episode is all about Germany, a fine place to get chocolate and other fun treats. After all of this, we're also going to be focusing on some writing projects, they're a little "top secret" right now, but hopefully you'll know about them in the near future.

This week, on Snack Facts (our Instagran feed), we're going to look at baking.  Every day this week we'll post a new fact, that you might even consider a tip, on baking.  You can follow Snack Facts on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to learn a fun fact every day this week.

We also have this week's new review, and there's a bonus. The bonus is of coarse that this week's review is part one of a  review-a-thon. All this week we're posting a new review every day, and the theme is Fazer.  For those unfamiliar, Fazer is a very famous Finnish brand of chocolate bars. While they're not well known in North America, in Europe they're all over the place, and for good reason.  Fazer makes some very high quality chocolate, and you'll see by this week's reviews, well worth sampling yourself. Click here to read the latest review, and follow us on Twitter or Facebook to keep up with this week's Fazer review-a-thon.

This Week In Candy

This is a busy week here at Candy Critic because we've got a lot of content to put together for the rest of the summer and early fall.  Why do you ask is all of this prep-work necessary?  Well we're moving... again.  Although many of you have no idea where we are right now, all I can say is that we're in Asia somewhere.  The thing is, we're going back home, to Canada, and we're leaving sometime this summer.  We'll have a stop over in Florida as well to enjoy the happiest place on earth Disney World. What that means for this blog, and Candy Critic is that we have pre-prep a lot of content.  We don't want things empty while we're moving.

Our first goal, which has been met, and that was to make Candy Critic portable.  We can now update Candy Critic, and this very blog (as well as our video show and podcast) from just about anywhere with an internet connection. Our next step was to get our regular posts ready to go while we were in transition, that's done too.  So while we're moving you'll still see our weekly regular posts including our Candy Thing and Candy In The Media.  Our last goal, which will be working on this week, and likely next week, is to get future episodes of our podcast Junk Fud, our video show Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!!, and some special posts for the blog read to go and pre-posted as much as possible.  All this and we're still writing and keeping up things for this week as well.

Speaking of this week, on Snack Facts, our Instagram feed, we'll be looking at my favorite Canadian flavour, maple syrup.  All this week on Snack Facts we'll be posting fun facts about the greatest sugar in the world.  You can follow Snack Facts on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

And just because we're super busy,  doesn't let us off the hook for today's new review.  We've decided to post a classic Canadian candy in honour of our homecoming.  It may not seem like a classic Canadian treat, but all Canadian kids are very familiar with any of the Maynards gummies.  Click here to read this great review.
