It's The Video Where I Eat Strange Foods - Tamago Gani (Dried Little Crabs)


I'm going to make a statement that I think a few of you will not like, in fact many of you  might completely disagree with me, there are no good seafood snacks on the market. I can't think of one fish flavoured snack or candy that works. The only exception is candy and snacks that are shaped like seafood, but to not taste like seafood. If I'm wrong, please tell me what I should be trying.

Wafer Bars Are Tough, And This Review Proves It - Tivoli Combo

I have a love hate relationship with wafer based bars. Some of my favourite bars in the world are wafer based, however there seem to be more failures than successes in this style of candy bar. I'm not sure why this is, I don't think that wafers have a complicated flavour, and they also add a great texture. My guess is that wafers are cheap to purchase, so if you want to make a cheap bar, use wafers to take up space. What happens then is most cheap candy bars choose to use wafers, and they use them poorly.

Click here to read why this particular wafer bar didn't really work.

Candy In The Media - The Kit Kat I Remember


This is the commercial that sold me on Kit Kat when I was a kid/teenager. Objectively it's not a great commercial, but that song is still stuck in my head so many years later.

Classic Candies I Haven’t Reviewed And Why - Part 2


Lucky Elephant Popcorn - I've always been a little bit nervous about reviewing Lucky Elephant Popcorn. I've always had fond childhood memories of this treat, but I'm not sure it actually holds up on its own. I'm thinking that if I break down Lucky Elephant Popcorn, and look at it objectively, it's just sweet, bland popcorn. Sure it's bright pink, but is that enough?


Regular Lays or Ruffles, or Pringles - Every time I find myself in a store, facing the wall of potato chips, I always seem to find a flavour so interesting, or weird that I have to try it. I do eat regular potato chips, but only at parties, and almost always with some kind of dip. Some day I might have to go out and specifically buy plain potato chips to review, but only after I've exhausted all the other amazing flavours available.


Hot Tamales - I don't like spicy food. I see Hot Tamales as the quintessential spicy candy. It's not the hottest candy out there, but it's really the grandfather of hot candies. I actually think candies that are hotter than Hot Tamales are more interesting to me because I'm curious as to how hot they really are. Hot Tamales are hot enough that I'm scared to eat them, but not hot enough to make me interested.


Cherry PEZ - I've reviewed three flavours of PEZ so far, orange, grape and lemon. I've enjoyed each one of these flavours, but cherry has been my favourite flavour since childhood. The reason I've never reviewed cherry PEZ is because I've haven't selected the flavour of a package of PEZ for as long as I've been doing this site. Any PEZ candies that I've reviewed on this site came with a PEZ dispenser. I guess it's just been my luck so far (or maybe they never package PEZ dispensers with cherry PEZ), but I have not tasted cherry PEZ in years.

Amazing Candy/Junk Food Things That You Should Buy - Bob Ross Cereal


Last week we featured Bob Ross Energy Drink, this week it seemed appropriate to show you the Bob Ross Cereal. One might imagine that Bob Ross ate a lot of granola, so a cereal makes sense. A sugar cereal doesn't make as much sense, but I'd be more likely to eat it.

We're Going To Be Reviewing Kit Kat Bars This Week - Kit Kat "Japanese"

In celebration of the new and improved candycritic.org, I've decided to do a review-a-thon that I've been thinking about for a while now. This week we're going to be posting a new Kit Kat review every single day, the twist is that each of these Kit Kat bars are milk chocolate. None of them have any kind of fancy flavours, they're all plain milk chocolate.

Most of the Kit Kat reviewed will be from different parts of the world, with one exception. One of them is from North America, but it apparently contains "100% sustainable sourced cocoa", a claim that our current Canadian Kit Kat bar review can't make. The point of this week's review-a-thon is to see if Kit Kat bars are any different depending on where and how they're made. Today's review is proof that there are some big differences that may or may not improve this classic bar.

Click here to read this first milk chocolate Kit Kat bar review.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up with this week's review-a-thon.

Also check out our Patreon page to find out about other review-a-thons we have planned.
