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 To Eat Some Spicy Gum

 In this episode of Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!! I sample what I thought would be a painful spicy cola bubble gum. As it turns out, it was one of the most inspiring gums I've ever had.

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.

Check out what this gum did to make me think about gum innovation.

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.

It's All The Colours, Yet Not As Impressive As I'd Hoped - Rainbow Nerds

I keep trying to tell myself that packages have nothing to do with the candy, but then I'm presented with Nerds, and all of those ideas have to go out the door. I think I'm officially going to change my stance on this subject, from now on, packages do matter. If you're a candy company and you want me to enjoy something, you better deliver on the package as well... unless you don't have a package... hmmm, this creates a bit of a problem.
