Candy In The Media - Epic Cake Machine


This is part invention, part art installation, and part dance routine, but it ends in cake, so it's also wonderful.

Something Smells Like Dinner... Oh It's You.


Have you ever dreamed of smelling like a slow cooked roast beef? It doesn't appeal to me, but Allison would probably appreciate it.

It's Time To Eat Pancakes And Post A New Review! - Tim Tam Fingers

This week's new review got me in a bit of a mood. Recently someone complained that some of the treats posted on Candy Critic weren't technically candy. I decided that in retaliation, I would post something that's in a very grey area of this debate, and complain about people telling me that some of the things I review aren't candy.

Find out what I thought of these Tim Tam Fingers, and what I think about people's complaint that some of my reviews aren't technically candy, here.


When I thought up the idea of the Monday Morning Breakfast Thoughts, I thought that I would just eat a bowl of cereal and talk about whatever crossed my mind at the time. We're up to the third episode and I've only eaten cereal once. I like the idea of variety for breakfast, I just don't know if I can keep it up.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out what we're working on and what's coming up.

Candy In The Media - VR Meets Japanese Candy


I've always been a fan of VR technology, however I think this machine might have taken the VR exspirience one step too far.

Our Latest Experiment Is All About Cracker Jacks



In our latest experiment we tried to make homemade Cracker Jacks. Strangely enough it worked, fairly well. Below is a quick version of our recipe along with a few changes we think might make it a little better:

-  Heat your oven to 250 degrees.

-  Mix 8 cups of popcorn with 1 cup of roasted peanuts (maybe make it half a cup of peanuts if you'd like).

-  Take 1/4 of a cup of salted butter and melt it in a pot. Then add 3/8 cups of brown sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup, 1 tablespoon molasses, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Whisk them together and heat them up till they reach 250 degrees (use a candy thermometer).

-  Take the sugar mixture off the heat and add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and whisk them all together.

-  Poor the sugar mixture into a large bowl over the popcorn and peanut mix.

-  Mix everything up until the popcorn and peanuts are covered (careful it gets hot).

-  After it's all mixed up lay it out on a baking sheet with a silicon baking liner (or you can grease it).

-  Put it in the  oven for 10 minutes, then toss the mixture. repeat this until the mixture has been in the oven for 30 minutes (my original recipe suggested 50 but my oven is small and very hot so I went for 30 instead).

- Take the mixture out of the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes.

-  Break the popcorn and peanuts apart and consume.

-  Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to check out some future experiments.
