Secondly, we're going to be changing a few things here on the blog. We're going to cut down on the number of entries and focus a few things exclusively to our social media. The "Candy News" section that we used to post on Friday is going away. Instead we're just going to focus on posting all our news on Twitter. We may also decide to post our news on our Facebook site as well, but we're not too sure about that yet (let us know if you have an opinion on the subject). We're also going to combine our "Friday Candy Video" and "Classic/Creative Candy Advertising" into one post. I'm not sure what to call it yet, but we'll post weekly about an ad/campaign/candy reference that we've come across. This will be posted every Friday starting this week.
We're also going to announce our weekly Candy Critic review update on This Week In Candy (the very post you're reading right now), instead of giving it a solo post.
Click here to read our latest review.
Finally we're going to start writing more original content and longer articles on this blog, this also includes candy related experiments as well. The idea of these changes is to minimize the number of posts and maximize the quality of posts. This will be an ever evolving thing, and we welcome any comments.

For 10 weeks we're going to be featuring great looking candy themed posters from our sister site bewarethecheese.com. Beware the Cheese not only created all of these great looking candy shots, but they also shoot all of the candy photos for Candy Critic. Why not pick up a poster as a gift or for yourself.

The Twix ad campaign from the 1980s is probably one of the most memorable series of candy commercial for me. The last 15 seconds of this commercial is one of the best examples of candy glamour shots. And although slightly dated, this commercial actually made eating a certain candy bar kind of cool.

I found this ad here.

I'm not sure what came first, the expression "Sugar Daddy" or the candy. Fortunately it appears that the candy company has taken full advantage of the expression, and uses it regularly. I'm not really sure if it's appropriate to combine the idea of a man that has lots of money supporting a woman (often with sexual overtones), and a chewy candy thing on a stick, but I'm not a good judge of morality either.
