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.

Click here to check out my latest review that happens to be cookies and cream themed.

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.

A Bar That's Famous, But Not To You

This week's review features a chocolate bar that you've probably never heard of. Likely you figure that this bar is some weird candy that's only available in some small country. You probably imagine that this Alfie bar is something only a handful of people know about. If you thought all of that, you'd be wrong. Alfie bars are actually really common, and I would wager that it sells better than many North American candy bars. The thing is, it's only available in Asia. A place where there's a huge population of people that are starting to really enjoy eating candy bars. Sure this bar wasn't my cup of tea, but for millions of people in the world this is becoming a classic candy bar, and chances are you've never even seen it before.

Click here to find out why I didn't really like this extremely popular candy bar.

A New Candy Review From Europe

I've been lucky enough to travel to many places, and eat candy from just about every corner of the world. One of the interesting things about the world is the way that candy flavours and trends seem to stick together, geographically. It seems like borders don't mean as much as general regions. For example, this box of chocolates that was purchased in Finland, has a very central/northern European feel to it. A marshmallow from Asia is very different than a North American marshmallow. Caramel from South America is also very unique, but similar within South America. It's obviously the fact that food traditions spread across areas and ignore the borders. They do however stop at random places and suddenly there's something completely different. It's hard to explain, but if you taste the same chocolate bar made in different parts of the world, you just might start to understand it.

We're A Little Delayed This Week

Normally I would post all about our new review on Mondays, but this week I'm posting on Tuesday. Obviously the reason is because Easter was on Monday. I figured it was best to leave the Easter review up for an extra day and keep the theme alive. 

With Covid being a thing, our household started a new Easter tradition that frankly I hope stays around for a while. Rather than going to visit family, or go out enjoying any kind of spring weather, we decided that the best thing to do during this 4 day long weekend is binge watch our DVD collection. We did this while also eating a lot of snacks. The idea was to dig up those DVDs that you never figured we'd actually get around to watching, and crossing them off our list. This meant that we finally finished 24, we finished Bewitched, and while we didn't finish, we got through many episodes of Tabitha, Soap, and the Marry Tyler Moore show. We actually really enjoyed all but one of these shows.

Click here to read the slightly late, but still interesting new candy review.

If you want to find out which show we didn't like, maybe we'll tell you on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Bunny Time!!!

For my last Easter review I decided to go with this chocolate Easter Bunny Kit Kat treat. The one thing I've noticed over the years is an increase in brand name Easter treats. Not that Easter treats didn't have popular brand names when I was a kid, but today I'm noticing more every day brands are coming out with Easter treats. So now you're seeing Butterfinger eggs, Crunchy mini eggs, and Kit Kat bunnies. I'm not sure how I feel about that, particularly since it appears that the classic Easter treats are getting less shelf space.

The Egg Shape Works!

I’ve always been intrigued by the Easter Egg. I don’t really understand how it’s come about, even though I’ve done some research on the subject. Having said that, I feel like the egg is a really good way to deliver filled chocolates. I’m not as big a fan of just hollow chocolate eggs, but as a means to deliver filling, I feel like chocolate eggs are very good. Because of the oblong shape each bite is a little different from the next. On the narrower end of an egg you get more chocolate to filling, but around the center it’s mostly filling and less chocolate. It allows for an interesting balancing act between chocolate and filling. I also feel like the egg is a comfortable shape to hold. This is more so when you’re talking about larger filled egg treats. While I’ll never understand the origins of chocolate eggs, I’m always going to enjoy eating them.

Click here to check out my latest Easter review, which happens to be egg shaped.

Easter In Covid Times

I feel like Easter is the one holiday that can work during Covid. While we all want to be outside or with extended family right now, Easter is the holiday where those in your house can celebrate together. More to the point, even if Covid was not a thing, it's very likely that you would not be going out during Easter (except those who celebrate at church). So start thinking about how you can celebrate this year and make sure to make it a great Easter. Hide treats no matter how old you are, paint Easter eggs now matter what lever artist you are, make this the best Easter ever and build new traditions that will last forever. If you do know someone who is absolutely alone, dawn your bunny ears and drop off a basket at their front door.

Be safe, but make Easter awesome.

Hi Chews Are Really Popular

I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that they love Hi-Chews. I can't really figure out why, other than the amazing texture, they're just little taffy cubes. Maybe it's because it's an Asian candy that's not very intimidating, or maybe it's the occasionally strange flavour they offer. It's not to say that I don't like Hi-Chews, I just don't know if they'll ever make my list of top candy brands. They're just taffy, with a slightly rubbery texture (that I like a lot) and often a fairly fake flavour.

I'm Getting Too Old For This

My birthday is this week, and I've decided that I'm okay with what many people call old people's candy. I'm also okay with kids candy as well, but I've come to terms with the fact that my taste is maturing. The other day I found myself going through Twitter, I saw a picture of some peppermints and I was excited at the idea of tasting them. I'm pretty sure that peppermints are not the kind of candy that the young kids are into, so I've accepted that I'm an old man. Fortunately I feel like I'm not too old to continue to eat kids candy, so I don't have to retire this website.

Reviews Are Back, But They Almost Disappeared For A Little While

My goal was to finish the Quality Street review-a-thon last week, but Wednesday afternoon changed everything. That was the moment that I spilt a half a glass of water on my laptop. While it was a horrifying moment, two things worked in my favour. First and foremost Allison and I acted quickly and dried off what we could, as well as turn the computer off immediately. Secondly it was only water, and not tea or cola. After the spill we cleaned it up very quickly, set it upside down, and had to wait about 3 days. After those 3 days I tried to turn the computer on for the first time, and luckily it turned on and everything was still working.

So now that everything is okay, I've decided to resume the Quality Street review-a-thon with a fine example of caramel and chocolate mixed together.

It's Quality Street All Week!!!

I haven't done a review-a-thon lately, and I also haven't reviewed every single Quality Street chocolate. So it seemed like the perfect fit would be to review each and every Quality Street (that I could find) in one week. Keep in mind that I know there are some other Quality Street chocolates out there, these are just the more common ones, or at the very least the ones available at the bulk store where I shop. It's a little embarrassing sorting through a bin of Quality Street chocolates looking for two of each, but I did it for the love of being a completionist. 

I've apparently started out with what I might call a really average chocolate, so I'm hoping things get better.

P.S. I'm not going to review the Purple One, because I already have, twice.

A Little Love For Valentine's Day

I feel like Valentine's Day is the top candy heavy holiday that people don't really like. I feel like people crap on Valentine's Day because they feel like it makes people miserable, instead of making them happy. I also kind of agree with them. The thing is, per-capita, I feel like Valentine's Day produces the best candy, better than any other holiday. The main ingredient in this holiday seems to be chocolate, followed by cinnamon. These are two flavours I can get behind %100. I also feel like Valentine's Day is the day to treat yourself to something a little bit fancy, like a nice box of fine chocolates. While I mostly agree that Valentine's Day is more stress than fun, I really like the candy.

I'm Not Sure Why These Are So Popular

I've written on this blog a number of times about classic candies that I haven't reviewed. The most common reason I don't review classic treats is that I actually forget about them. They've become such a staple in my mind that I don't even think about them. Sometimes I just assume I've already written a review and never bother to actually write the review. These Reese's Pieces fall into a different category altogether.

I don't really love Reese's Pieces, there I've said it. I don't hate them, but it's very rarely that I'll seek them out or even buy a box. In the world of classic candies, it's pretty low on my list, so low that I sometimes wonder how they've stuck around for so long. I can't say I've ever met someone who would call Reese's Pieces their favourite candy, yet they're still available in many stores.  So who's buying these? Is it just people nostalgic for 1980's movies about friendly aliens?

The Shape Of Salty Snacks To Come?

We're going to forget the argument that salty snacks are not candy and have no place on this site. I've covered that a few times on this blog, and I'm not going to stop reviewing this kind of snack. The thing I want to talk about today is the lack of creativity when it comes to the shape of salty snacks. Right now I'm seeing a trend is making salty snacks 3D. This means escaping the common flat potato chip (or perfectly round, or triangle) shape of salty snacks, and we're adventuring out a bit. Sure there's also pretzels and cheese puffs, but frankly those are shapes that have been around for such a long time. What I'm talking about is making salty snacks in fun shapes similar to gummies. I think the only brand that's really done it recently is Goldfish crackers. 

The thing that makes me happy are snacks like this week's new review. In Asia there seems to be a trend in making salty snacks in the shape of chicken parts. Obviously you flavour them with chicken, but I guess that doesn't have to be a rule either. I would just like to see more salty snacks with really unique shapes. I think potato chips should be the next group of salty snacks to take on this challenge. It's not like Pringles are a naturally shaped potato chip, so why not make it fun. I also think more cracker companies should be doing this too.

Click here to read about these chicken shaped salty snacks (and please don't complain about them not being candy).

Also be sure to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, I guess you could complain about them not being candy there.

Making Sure I Don't Forget The Classics

 

I've been writing candy reviews for longer than I care to say. When I first started this site, and even today, one of the most common comments I get from people is, how many candies are out there to review? People assume that I'm going to run out of treats to review, I even worry about it myself sometimes. Then occasionally, I make a list of all the candies that I used to eat as a kid that I have not yet reviewed on candycritic.org, and those lists are always immensely long. I also realize that my list is Canadian centric, and people all over the world have huge lists of candies they consider to be classics that I've never even heard of. I have noticed over the last few years that I'm going into shops and finding more treats that I have reviewed, but between those snacks are new snacks that I've never even heard of.

Click here to read a review of one of the candies on my list of classic from when I was a kid.
