Is Cookies and Cream Just White Chocolate?

I have a strange relationship with cookies and cream treats. More often than not I really like them, but I can't really figure them out. If someone asked me to describe cookies and cream chocolate treats, I would likely say that they're like a white chocolate bar with cookie bits, only creamier. I feel like that's a good description, but I'm not sure technically how accurate that is. I don't know how they make cookies and cream chocolate, but each time I bite into a treat made with it, I wonder.

I Wunder?

There was a time when this bar was the top of my list of go to candy, and this commercial probably played a part in that.

It's Never Too Late To Learn About Chocolate Bunnies.

In this latest issue of Snack Facts we see Sir Francis Sweetums and his lovely assistant Barbara learning all about the history of the chocolate bunny. Bunnies have been associated with Easter for a long time, but the chocolate bunny came a bit later. When the chocolate bunny did arrive, it arrived in a big way.

Make sure to order the latest issue of Snack Facts and learn all about this chocolate treat.

Is York The Candy Bar Capital Of The World?

 In this episode of Junk Fud and You I argue that York is the candy bar capital of the world. If any other city wants to disagree I'd be happy to visit and be proven wrong.

Do you know other candy cities, let me know on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Gummy Bear Old School

Of all the shirts in our store, this pixilated gummy bear shirt is one of my favourites. I wear mine all the time.

Turtle Time

When I was a kid, Turtles were all the rage. I'm not sure when they came out, but I feel like they really hit their stride in the mid 80s. There was even competition from other candy companies making Turtles rip offs, like Armadillos. Interestingly, I don't think that Nestle put out a million different variety of Turtles then, it was just the one kind of Turtle, and they promoted it like crazy. Today the way to promote yourself seems to be about making a million varieties, and changing up the size is certainly a key tool in the candy bar war. I'm not sure it always works (see this new review), but I'm happy it happens. After all, when candy companies are forced to be creative, we all win.
