This Week In Candy

You may not know this, but we have a whole bunch of reviews written and ready to go online, we keep them for a rainy day.  By rainy day I mean we keep them for weeks when I'm sick or on vacation.  The problem is my archive of reviews to post has started to grow to well over one hundred reviews.  While it's nice to have a few reviews ready to go just in case, over one hundred is just way too many.  To help work this list down, we sometimes have a review-a-thon, where we review a candy every day of the week, instead of just Monday.  I've decided however that this list needs some quick extreme trimming, so prepare for the review-a-thon-a-thon.  For the next four weeks we're going to post a new review every weekday.  Some week's will have great themes (like this week), likely at least one's theme will be random candy.  You can follow our weekly review-a-thon-a-thon on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, or Google +.

Just because we're posting a lot of reviews doesn't mean we're just taking the week off either.  This week we're continuing our podcast series Junk Fud, with the latest episode of Junk Fud History all about Jolly Ranchers.  But that's not all, we're also going to post a new episode of our YouTube show Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!!, where Chris (that's me) enjoys a really creepy looking candied... something or other.  We don't stop here because all this month on our regular Candy Thing blog segments (that goes online every Wednesday) we're posting snack related Amazon Dash Buttons, a thing that we're still not really sure isn't a joke.  We're not stopping here though, this Thursday we have our regular monthly post for the Candy Critic Dessert Club. This week we're making "Frank", a cookie invention that we made up ourselves, and we're giving you the recipe.

As you can tell there's a lot going on this week, so hopefully you'll still have time to keep up with Snack Facts, our Instagram feed.  This week Snack Facts is going with the gummy theme with a look at Gummy candies.  Check back every day this week for a fun fact about these stretchy treats.  You can follow Snack Facts on Instagram, our Twitter feed, and Facebook page as well.

For the first week of our review-a-thon-a-thon we're going to look at gummies as well.  So every day this week we'll be posting a new review of a fun gummy treat.  Today's review is a strange one, so strange that you might not even be able to call it a real gummy.  Click here to find out why.
