It's Time To Roll Into A New Review - Rolo

 

This certainly falls into the category of candy reviews that I should have written years ago. I can't tell you why I've never written this review until now. I can tell you however that I've eaten plenty of these since this blog/site was created. The inspiration to write this review actually came from the fact that I recently reviewed the Rolo Minis. It just seemed wrong to not follow it up with the classic size. At the very least it'll give the Rolo Minis review a little better context.

It's Time For A New Review, It's Spicy And Chewy - Spicy Cola

I don't know why, but I feel like the gum industry has gotten a little stale in the last few years. Its seems like the only gum out there is either mint, or has some kind of retro twist. I don't see great innovation in gum these days. It's not to say that I don't enjoy a chew now and again, and I certainly think there are some good gums out there. I just feel like there's nothing new for me to try. I don't know, I guess if you make a gum that you think will change my mind, let me know and I'd love to review it. This new review scratches the surface a little, but it's still not mind blowing different.

It's Time To Think About Thickness - Coffee Crisp Thins

Since the conception of this website I have been obsessed with the size of candy. I think it's really fascinating when a candy company decides to make a treat larger, smaller, or in this case thinner. I always seem to over think the reasons a candy company would want to change their treats, and if they think it's an improvement. I'll be honest, there are very few treats that have improved themselves by changing their size or dimensions. While I understand there are some companies looking at improving the health benefits of their treats by changing the size, I often find that it doesn't always work. Mostly because more candy companies seem to sell these smaller versions of their treats in larger numbers per package.

Oh No.... Oh Henry "Level Up"

If you read this review, you'll see that I liked this bar, but didn't like the theme at all. I've given it a little thought and come up with an idea about how this bar was created in my head. I imagine an office at Hershey where someone was on some social media platform when they came across the term "level up". They learned that it meant increasing something and that the "kids" where using this word. They then figured that they should take one of their candy bars and "level it up". They talked in the meeting and determined that to level something up, you have to randomly ad stuff to it, and this is how this bar was born.

It's Time To Eat Random Candies And Ask Why Would I Eat That?!! - Mixed Flavor Candy


There are several angles to this candy, all have a certain amount of risk. There's the fact that the package has little to no information about these candies. There's the fact that there's no way of knowing for sure what flavour is which. Worst of all, there's a very good chance that one of these candies is durian flavoured.

I won't lie, I was pretty sure that I would love some of the flavours of this taffy, but I was also pretty sure that I would hate some of the flavours. While I was pretty sure I would hate the durian, I wasn't sure if I would love all the others because frankly I wasn't sure what other flavours to expect. That's mostly because of the package.

Late Night Chip Fix - Doritos Late Night "Buffalo Hot Wings"

 

I guess you could say that these are the best hot wings I've ever eaten. I say this because I really don't like wings that much. I'm sure it's because of the bones and the chicken skin, two parts of poultry that I don't really like. So what Frito-Lay managed to do is get all the flavour of a Buffalo hot wing and get rid of all that side stuff I don't like. As you might have guessed, I'm a pretty picky eater, particularly when it comes to meat. I'm not a vegetarian, but I do like vegetables a lot.

I Thought I'd Eat Another Aero Truffle - Aero Truffle "Dark Cherry"

I'm pretty sure this is the end of the Aero Truffle bar. I'm seeing them on sale everywhere, and to me that's a sign that this "limited" run is over. I'm not sure if it was a success for Nestle, and frankly up until now I wasn't too sad to see them go. Then I tried this variation and I felt like there was a hope. I actually feel a little sad that this bar is going to be leaving us. I feel like there's still a problem with the concept of this bar (that bubble layer being milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate), but this dark cherry flavour is bold and pretty tasty. I hope I'm wrong about these bars going away, since I think it's great that Nestle is trying some unique flavours. I just hope, if they bring them back, they work on the chocolate a little bit.

Here's the strange thing about Reese's Pieces, I'm not really a big fan.

It's Another Kit Kat Bar - Kit Kat "Matcha Green Tea"

I'm going to be completely honest with you guys, I'm getting a little tired of Kit Kat bars. I'm not going to put the blame on the creative people at Nestle, because those people have created some amazing flavour combination that work really well with the Kit Kat format. I think I might have just eaten too many varieties of Kit Kat bar in the last 2 or 3 years. I have, in the last few months, seen at least 4 different varieties of Kit Kat bars and not bought them. I just don't get excited about them. I don't blame anybody really, no one forced me to sample so many varieties of Kit Kat bars, but I did. I'm sure I'll get over this, and I'll see a Kit Kat bar that really excites me, but for now I think I might take a break from these bars... except I might be eating a classic Kit Kat for a video idea I have in the works, just maybe no reviews for a little while.

It's Time To Crunch Some Doritos - Doritos "Ketchup"

I have really mixed feelings about Ketchup flavoured potato chips (let alone Ketchup flavoured corn chips). I can't say that I dislike them, yet it's probably a flavour of chip that I would never buy. This is a flavour that I truly enjoy, yet I've never craved it. That seems a little weird to me. I can safely say that just about every snack I've reviewed on candycritic.org that has a higher than 10 review score, at some point I've craved it again, except for Ketchup flavoured chips.

This Tiny Candy Made Me Think Some Pretty Big Thoughts - Starburst "Minis Original"

There is the famous expression that "size doesn't matter", I do not believe that at all when it comes to candy. I think the size of a candy can make or break it for so many reasons. Health is the first thing that comes to mind, as you should really not eat an entire 5 pound Hershey bar by yourself. Next thing to think about is variety, better to have a few bites with varying flavours than eat a candy until you're sick of it (I call this the Costco effect). It also sucks to have too fleeting a taste of a candy. The last, and I argue most important thing to think about when the size of a treat changes is the ratio of ingredients. The biggest problem I find when I eat a candy treat that's had a size change is the ratio of ingredients changes and throws everything off. Strangely this treat had a problem of its own.

Maybe Nerds Just Shouldn't Be Updated - Double Dipped Nerds "Watermelon Apple and Cherry Lemonade"

Since I started reviewing candy many years ago I've had changing opinions about classic candies that offered different variations. There are some cases where I think these variations really work and I go out of my way to try them out, Kit Kat is probably the best example, but there are also a few others. There are also some treats that have broken out with different varieties and it just doesn't work. The new versions not only don't live up to the original, but sometimes they fail as a snack on their own. What I'm saying is that sometimes I like a little variety, and sometimes... well sometimes you get something like this new candy review.

A Very Special Review - Crispy Crunch

Some of you keen eyed people out there may have noticed that I've already posted this Crispy Crunch review. In fact I think I posted it many years ago. I'm making this already posted review our feature review because of my father. A few week's ago he passed away, and the Crispy Crunch was his all time favourite candy bar. Normally that would be enough, but I want to stress how important my father was to the creation of this website.

My father used to take my sister and I out on long walks. We used to walk around Toronto, and St Catharines when we were kids. We would go on crazy adventures exploring the urban landscape, but before each adventure we would have to make a stop. This stop would be at a local convenience store to load up on candy. This wouldn't be my father taking the kids to the candy store to keep them busy during the walk. My father would partake in the candy buying as much as we would (sometimes more). We would load up on treats and head out on whatever adventure awaited. These adventures and the candies we would buy inspired my love of tasting new and fun treats, and that is the seed of this website.

Questionable Reviews - Play More "Ume"

I eat a lot of things on this site that many might consider not to be candy. Most of the time people complain that chips, cakes or even chocolate is not technically candy, and they ask me why am I reviewing it on this site. My standard answer is that this is "my" site, and I'll do what I want. Today however I think I may have crossed a line, today I might have just eaten a pill. I might have eaten some kind of supplement or some kind of light weight medical thingy. I'm still going to keep this review online, because I'm not entire sure that it's not candy either.

I Normally Don't Eat Spicy Food But... - Aero Truffle "Dark Chipotle"

 

I don't understand why some people can just eat spicy food, and others cannot. I say this from the point of view of someone who does not generally enjoy spicy food. I wish that I could have been in love with spicy food since I was a child, but frankly I've just started to build a tolerance for it, and it's far from being something pleasurable. At this point I eat spicy food in order to build a tolerance, or to be polite. I still don't really enjoy spicy food for the fact that it's spicy. I enjoy some spicy foods, but I feel like taking the spice away would only make this food more pleasurable. I don't know why I was born this way, or even if I was born this way, but here I am.

It's rare that I post something on this blog that is at all useful, however I would argue that every house in the world should have one of these.
