My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms has been the cereal that has managed to get away from me for my entire life. I went from being a kid with a mother that  refused to buy it for me. To being a teenager who thought that I was too cool for Lucky Charms (they were also way out of my poor teenager budget). Now I'm old enough to buy them myself, and I'm married to a woman that insists that I stay alive, so she keeps them away from me.  I'm hoping on my death bed I'm given a giant bowl of Lucky Charms, then I can die happy.

My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Ice Cream Ball

I have to be honest, I don't own any ice cream making tools. I own a few ice cream scoops, but other than a few no turn ice cream recipes, I don't make ice cream at home. Maybe this year things will change.

My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Fancy Ice Cream Scoop

I love ice cream, I also feel that if you truly love ice cream than you must own a good quality scoop.  If I go to someone's house and they serve ice cream scooped with a spoon, I just get up and walk out.

It's Time For a New Candy Review! - Choco Kit "Ice Cone!"

I have to be honest, I've been feeling a little bummed out about living in a place that doesn't have a winter. In February it's a fantastic thing to not think about winter and snow, but around the Christmas holidays it's a little depressing. There are a few decorations up, both in our house and around town, but it doesn't feel the way Christmas should without the snow.

Click here to read the review that inspired this funk (only because there are penguins on the package).

You can also find out what I'm doing to cope with this Christmas funk on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Why not follow us on Pinterest, it'll make you and me happy.

My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Soda Stream

I love sparkling drinks, and I'm always fascinated about how you get the bubbles in a drink. I'm sure I would probably use up the carbonating cartridge just messing around and being fascinated.

My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Oreo Candy Canes

I realized that not one thing on my wish list so far had anything to do with Christmas. So I asked my friends to suggest a few ideas and the one that stuck out for me was Oreo candy canes.  I'm not sure if I'd enjoy eating an Oreo flavoured candy cane, but it's just nice that it's not Oreo making a candy cane flavoured cookie?..

My Candy/Junk Food Chrsitmas Wishlist - Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce

I'm not going to be home (Canada) for the holidays this year, and while having family and friends around for the season would be nice, it would also be impractical.  Having some Swiss Chalet dipping sauce on the other hand is heart warming, nostalgic, and far less expensive than having my family fly over.  I also think it would taste really great on a turkey.

Candy In The Media - Melting At Christmas


This Christmas commercial for Hershey's may seem harmless, but I think it's super weird. The weirdness surrounds the choice of  song. First of all "I'll Stop The World And Melt With You" is not a Christmas song, so that's a little weird.  The downright disturbing part of this commercial is the fact that it's sung by people made of chocolate. It's implying that these chocolate people are happy to melt (or die) for me on Christmas.  That's a pretty grim message if you as me.

It's About Time That We Had Some South American Candy Reviews - Vauquita "Tableta Dulce De Leche"

I've never been to South America. At this point I think it's the only continent that I've never visited (excluding Antarctica). So as you would imagine, I don't have many South American candies reviewed on Candy Critic. Well I've taped into a vein of South American candies, so for the next little while I'll be posting new South American candy reviews regularly.

Click here to read the first of a few South American candy reviews we'll be posting in the next little  while.
