This Week In Candy

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but we've updated the way our social network sites work.  You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, and coming soon, Instagram.  Each one of these social media platforms allows you to follow what we're doing in a different way.  Our Twitter account has the most up to date and most regular posts.  If we find an interesting article about junk food or candy, that's the first place we'll post it.  Facebook and Tumblr are updated whenever we post a new blog or review, and fairly regularly with fun little day to day musings.  At this point our Google+ account is getting much use.  We continue to post new reviews, and we also post a few musings now and then, but it's proven to be difficult to work with and we're not sure if we'll continue to use it in the future.  Instagram, when and if we get it working properly, will have a daily photograph of us doing something.  I'm not really sure how it's going to work yet, but I've got some ideas.  We don't want to spam you with too much Candy Critic, so pick a social network and let us know what you like and what you don't like.

Beyond trying to figure out how to make Instagram part of our social media world, we're working on a few articles that we hope to have online soon.  First of all I've developed and obsession with trying to make the perfect batch of popcorn.  We've decided to look at ever aspect of making popcorn and build ourselves the perfect recipe.  If anybody has any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it.

We're also working on an article about artificial sweeteners.  I know there's a great deal of controversy about how healthy they may be for you, but we're most interested in how they taste.  We're working on a taste test to try and figure out how well some of these sweeteners compare.

Finally, we received a great deal of Glee gum in the mail recently, I believe we might have a sample from each flavour they offer.  We're going to have a taste test to try and find out which flavour tastes best, freshens your breath best, and lasts the longest.
