Time To Mix It Up

Over the years I've had a love/hate relationship with candy varieties. In the early creation of this site I was always disappointed when a candy company came out with a different version of a classic candy. Today I'm a little more hopeful and excited. I feel like candy companies have become better at creating different versions of their classic treats. I feel like in the past the variations would always be really simple, like slapping a bit of caramel on it, or making it dark instead of milk chocolate. Today these versions are much more sophisticated, and I give a lot of credit to the Kit Kat bar. Specifically the folks at Kit Kat Japan who broke the mold when it comes to changing up a classic.

When Snack Companies Meet

When snack companies work together it seems very polarizing. I feel like these snack combinations either fail miserably or succeed beyond any expectations. I think it all depends on the amount of thought put into these snack combinations. The first step is that the combination has to make sense. The second is that they don't necessarily give what makes them best as an individual snack. Instead these snacks have to give what makes best for the combination. I often find that flavours and textures can clash rather than work together. This is all to say that this is truly a meeting of snacks that truly makes sense, and both contribute the perfect elements to each other.

I Don't Like The Road Runner

While I'm happy to see the Coyote messing up himself, I feel like the Road Runner shouldn't have stolen his bar at the end.

Hello Possible Stomach Pain

This is one of the few times that I watched the video back and while I was watching it tried to convince past me that maybe you shouldn't actually eat this.

Birthday Cake, But It's Not My Birthday.

I don't really understand this birthday cake trend. From what I can tell "birthday cake" flavoured treats are often full of sprinkles (technically not a flavour) and have a very strong vanilla flavour. If this is correct, then here's what I don't get. First of all I've never had a birthday cake flavoured birthday cake. I feel like most of my birthday cakes were either chocolate or some kind of ice cream cake. Secondly, isn't this form of birthday cake actually just a vanilla flavoured cake? So if you flavour anything else with this flavour, it's vanilla flavoured and no longer really related to a birthday cake. It just doesn't make that much sense to me and frankly I've never been wowed with anything that's birthday cake flavoured.

S'Mores In Candy

I feel like s'mores should be the easiest treat to reproduce in candy form, but frankly I don't know if I've ever found a treat that pulled off the perfect match. I've tried s'mores ice cream, candy bar, and even cookies, but nothing has been able to match the pure bliss that is biting into a warm s'mores fresh off the fire. I feel like it's a fools errand to try and recreate this treat, but I'm always happy to try out any candy companies attempt.

Make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, maybe I'll be making s'mores.

Not All Kit Kat Bars Are The Same

I think we can all agree that not all Kit Kat bars are the same. After all there's not way that a milk chocolate Kit Kat will taste anything at all like a wasabi flavoured Kit Kat bar. There is however one thing about American Kit Kat bars that's a little strange, and that's the fact that they're made by Hershey's. Everywhere else in the world Kit Kat bars are made by Nestle, but for some reason Hershey makes all the Kit Kat bars in the US. I'm sure there's some kind of guideline that they follow to keep them in line with the Nestle bars, but I will be honest, in general I find American Kit Kat bars to be less superior to just about any other Kit Kat bar.
