Fresh breathe for ladies

While reading through an issue of Us Magazine… man I really didn’t like writing that last sentence. I came across this add for York Mints.
I think its kind of neat to see how they gear their adds for each publication.

Hanging Around

While looking over this box of little French/Mexican cakes I came across their cool prize.

It was a door hanger thing with changeable messages that stick on.

One has something to do with building in your room and the other enforces the stereotype that French people stink. I don’t think I like this prize, or I just don’t get it.

I thought gumdrops where good for the gums!

All I can tell you today is that things are not perfect in the land of Candy Critic. Today I had a dentist appointment and the results where… well… let’s just say a long conversations was had and the following diagram was drawn up.
Read and you’ll understand, let me also say that several of my teeth fall in that blacked out centre bit. It’s not going to be fun.

Just to add…

While cracking open a bag of Mounds snack sized treats I came across this little bit of hidden advertising.

Sure it’s subtle, just like a kick to the face. I’m not a big fan of foods advertising other foods; it just seems a little excessive.


Smoke Ho?

I think this sign is telling me my breath stinks.

Don’t get upset, it’s only update day!

The greatest thing about this weeks review is the fact that there are a whole bunch of things to like about this weeks review. It’s original, it’s tasty, and I got it free. Sometimes it’s good to be the Candy Critic.
Also this week I came across a bag of gummies that isn’t represent on my grand list of gummies (a list I’ve been neglecting for a while). The problem with adding it to the list is I have no idea where the code is for that section of Candy Critic. So I’ll have to do a bit of searching through the archives and I’ll do what I can.

One big Kiss

Well the folks at Hershey have decided that they’d take one of their smallest treats and design one that would be the biggest in the world.

Click here to see the video.

Today Allison just got back from France and she didn’t come back empty handed.
She got me this cool box of chocolate covered animal cookies called Z’animo. I like the characters on the box.

Like this elephant wearing a hat.

And this lion wearing an amulet.

There’s also a monkey wearing… well really the monkey is naked.

I also like that the back of the box has this door hanger thingy that will keep anybody who can read French out of my room. Did I mention the cookies where yummy?

New Oh Henry?!!

How come I have to hear about he new Oh-Henry protein bar like this?

On a construction site wall covered in graffiti. Now I have to find one.



Just to let you fine folks know I managed to find these treats, haven’t tried one yet but I’m sure it’ll be reviewed. I even managed to score some for the Candy of the Month Club Members.

Summer’s here and the time is right… for update day!

Another lame title on this BLOG means that I’ve been working my butt off all day to get the updates rolling. This week’s treat is none other than Haribo Zimbo… Simpla… Zimballa. And if you’re familiar with it then you’re much more in tune with your European treats then we where about a month ago.

Also this week to help you cool down we’re officially releasing the article that took way too long to write, you’ll be sure that’s true when you read the first paragraph. But never the less enjoy reading about the frozen treats I made myself.

Happy National Chocolate Day!

Once again another strange holiday that was probably made up for no particular reason.

But you won’t see me complaining.

Jelly Belly Story

I find it hard to believe that they reject any flavours at all; I also find it hard to believe that they have only about 40 flavours, does that include the “special edition” flavours?

New Link

We just added a new link in Candy Critic. It’s for the Kandy X-Change.
A neat place to read, write and just check out candy stuff, that is of coarse after you’ve checked out

Be nice with your gum

The fact that I live with someone that hates gum lets me really see how horrible people are about throwing it out properly. At the Museum of Nature here in Ottawa they have special receptacles to get rid of your gum so the garbage doesn’t get all sticky and gross. Unfortunately I found more gum on the ground around this little contraption than in it but I still really like the idea.

What I learned on Canada Day

As I munched away at my special edition Oh Henry Oh Canada bar I thought there’s no way I’ll learn anything new about candy on my Canada Day adventure.

Well I never figured on this particular sign.

Well what do you know?


Canada Day Update

Wow this is pretty cool, not only do we have a great review of a pretty strange treat, ‘Tooth Ache Candy’ but…
It’s also the Canada Day weekend! What does that mean to all you Americans out there? Well not too much, but for all of us up north it means that we’ll be running around in red and white. I’ll also be enjoying this special edition Oh Canada, Oh Henry.
