This Week In Candy

Valentine's Day is coming!  If you're in love, and you like chocolate, this is pretty much the best holiday to be alive. If you don't like chocolate then there are a few other options, including Conversation Hearts and Cinnamon Hearts.  However, if you're not in love this holiday might not be that great.  Don't worry though, we have an article going online next week just for all of you single folks out there.

This week however we're only hinting at Valentine's Day, instead we're going to focus this week on America.  For no reason that I can logically think of we're going to look at my favorite people to the south (of Canada, where I'm from).  This week on Junk Fud, our podcast, we have an episode of Junk Fud on the Road all about the USA.  We're also looking at this proud nation by having an American candy bar review-a-thon.  That means that instead of just one review this week, we'll have 5, and all of them are going to be American candy bars (I'd like to thank my friend Katie and Kyle for helping out with this review-a-thon).

Not that we want to push this any further, but since the time is right, we figured on Snack Facts, our Instagram feed, we thought we'd look at Hershey's (a truly American candy company). Say what you want about the quality of the chocolate, this company has a pretty big history in the candy world.  It's probably the only candy company that has an amusement park too.  So make sure to check our Instagram feed, Facebook page, or Twitter feed every day this week to learn a little something about this history of Hershey's.

As we mentioned above, this week we're having an American candy bar review-a-thon.  As far as I know all of the bars featured this week are only available in the US as well.  You might find some in fancy candy stores that sell American exports, but average candy stores outside of the US probably don't sell these at all.  This might come as a surprise to some of you Americans out there.  Our first review is so chock full of America that it'll make you salute an eagle, after all it's got bacon in it.  Click here to read today's new review, and check back on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, or Google +, to see the rest of our American candy bar review-a-thon updates.
