2016 has been a pretty big year of change for us at candycritic.org. Actually it's been a return to lack of change, if you look at it technically. This is the year we returned home after 6 years away. The goal, to get back in touch with my Canadian roots, with a few stops in the US to make sure I haven't missed any other North American things. Because of this change, our reviews have been pretty eclectic as well. We've had candies from all over the world, but over the last few months, a focus on North America.
I feel like my palette has evolved with living abroad and I look at North American candy a little differently. Sometimes I think I see it as more nostalgic (particularly during the holidays) and sometimes I see it as so advanced and confusing. It really depends on my mood, and the candy.
This post is all about looking back at old reviews. I've picked 5 that are not the best or worst, but some of the most memorable reviews of 2016. They're each memorable for different reasons, some good, and some bad but all made me happy that I was a Candy Critic.
