Old Candy Critic Articles - The 12 Candies of Christmas Part 11

I've decided to take down several old articles from the and re-post them here on the Candy Critic blog.  This article I've decided to re-post a little differently.  Since it's a special post for Christmas, the 12 days of Christmas in particular, I've decided to split it up into 12 parts and count down the days till the fat guy's going to bring me some sweet gifts.

'Tis the season to eat candy fa la la la la la la laaaaaa. As we all know Santa's Sack includes candy, and you know it's always what I want for Christmas. The question, with all of the Christmas candy out on the market, is which candy really says Christmas. Well in classic Candy Critic style we're going to tell you, and you better believe we're going to make it as cheesy as possible. Sooooooo.....

On the eleventh day of Christmas (whenever that is) my true love gave to me......

A box of Nestlé After Eight

I hate it when a candy tells me when to eat it. So for the people at Nestlé I have one thing to say, the time now is 7:58 and I'm going to enjoy an After Eight. You may be asking yourself why a normal, well-adjusted person like myself would do something so strange as to eat an After Eight before eight. Well its not because I'm a jerk or that I like being mean, I just want to prove a point. The point is important too. Never let Nestlé control when you eat a snack, always make sure your life is in your own control. Now I know you might be saying, "Hey its after eight a.m. so your still technically eating it after eight." Well, I say that its not about being technical, its about the idea behind what your doing. Liberate yourself and eat a treat when you want it. Now as a symbol of my freedom, I will eat this treat...wait a minute now it's 8:02, it's after eight... Curse you Nestlé, curse you.

Well after that little rant its about time I try this treat. Actually I have to be honest and let you know that this to me is one of the greatest memories of Christmas. I remember getting together with family during the holidays, and siting on the kitchen table was a box of After Eight's. We were suppose to wait till after dinner to eat them, but because of the little envelopes it was hard to tell if any were missing. So by the time dinner started half the box would be missing. It was all for good reason too. These things are great for young and old alike. So make sure you keep a box of these handy on the holidays, but make sure you keep an eye on them too.
