Subtle Flavours Should Be Cherished

So as you may or may not know, there is a possibility that I have Covid right now (I don't know for sure as in Canada the only people that can be tested are vulnerable people and those working with vulnerable people). At this point my symptoms are mild and in general I'm still able to do almost everything I did before, except go outside. Today's candy review did remind me that some people lose their sense of taste. This makes me a little nervous because treats like these marshmallows require not only a basic sense of taste, but the ability to taste subtle flavours. I have set up a few fail safes if I was to ever get sick or lose my sense of taste (temporarily). I actually have many candy reviews done in advance that I can post at any time. While we live in crazy times, I always want to make sure you can read a new candy review each week.

Check out this subtly flavoured treat that I'm thankful that I'm able to taste.

Is Peanut Butter Overused?

 

This week's new candy review is of the Snickers "Creamy Peanut Butter". As far as I know there has already been another Snickers with peanut butter, and in fact I would argue that just about every single major candy company has produced at least one version of their treat with peanut butter. While I do enjoy peanut butter with chocolate, I feel like this ingredient is overused. More to the point, I feel like every candy companies figures that peanut butter will always work. This may be true, but judging by this review I think it's not. Peanut butter has a particular flavour and texture and it doesn't always work with everything, and even when it does "work" it has to be used properly. Peanut butter is not just an ingredient you can slap onto every single candy bar and guarantee a winner.

Find out why this week's featured candy doesn't work, even though it has peanut butter.

Circus Peanuts

 The best thing about this shirt is that you can get it if you love Circus Peanuts, or if you hate them. Obviously if you love them then you can celebrate everything great about this old fashioned treat, but if you hate them then you can just be ironic.

In The Middle Of Winter

 

I always feel like there's a bit of a drought of candies or snacks dedicated to winter. Sure there are plenty of Christmas treats that you could technically say are themed to winter, but for some reason all of these winter themed treats seem to disappear right after the new year. I want to see snack and candy companies come up with treats dedicated to the month of January that aren't Valentine's Day themed. I want winter treats exclusive for winter that are not only available after the holiday season, but maybe even exclusive to after the holiday season. This week's review is the closest I could find, they're winter, but they're definitely not Christmas.

Check out this very Canadian very winter snack.

Also make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to find out how I'm going to keep my sweet spirits up for the rest of the winter.

Don't forget to pick up a set of Snack Facts, my micro comic all about snacks and candy too. It'll keep you busy while you stay out of the cold.
