Oreos – Limited Edition – Firework

Posted in Cookies

If any snack food had to be chosen that has been going completely crazy with new flavors (minus ice cream, because we know Halo Top has been going wild) Nabisco/Oreo could take the cake cookie. I had mixed feelings when I heard that they were launching these Firework Oreos because how do popping candies work in a solid creme filling?

IMG_7873

I am of the Oreo camp that likes to twist open the cookie and eat the creme then the cookie pieces. While I totally see why others are on the other side of the fence (some flavors are best enjoyed as a full bite) I feel like the only way to enjoy this cookie is by eating the creme separately. In fact I feel like the best way to enjoy the popping candy is to eat the creme in teeny tiny little baby bites because other than that, it’s just crunchy bland flavored creme.

As crazy as this sounds, I think I would have enjoyed this flavor with golden cookies vs the standard chocolate. I feel a bit like a traitor saying that, but it’s true. Overall this cookie is pretty middle of the road for me. I would have liked to have more popping candy action, and a more distinct flavor. If I were to pick up Oreos again, I would just grab a package of the ole classic standby, not to mention this package is smaller than the standard size but still the same price. Womp Womp.

Trolli – Sour Gummi Crunchers

Posted in Candy

When it comes to sour gummy candy, there are pretty much two popular camps, Ferrara Candy Company (current makers of Trolli items)  and Mondelez International (makers of Sour Patch items). One could argue that Haribo would be part of this team as well, but when I think of them, my brain gravitates more towards classic gummy flavors (and the infamous Amazon reviews for the 5 pound bag of sugarless gummy bears). I’ve always pegged Trolli as the cooler older sibling to Mondelez when it comes to gummy shapes and flavors, opting for more adventurous ideas than its counterpart.

I usually give the candy aisle a brief scan when I am at the store, though usually you will find newer items on end caps, side caps, and check lanes, but occasionally you will be surprised. I spotted these and wasn’t sure if they were truly new but decided to go for them anyways. A quick search later netted me that they were some new, and off we went because I love anything gummy and anything sour.

I was very surprised when I flipped the package over, begrudgingly, that the green flavor was not apple for once. THANK THE HEAVENS. I am about 99% positive that I am the only person on the planet that doesn’t care for apple flavored candy, and I still haven’t forgiven Skittles for swapping the lime for apple a few years ago. The flavors in this bag are strawberry, grape, lemon, and lime. I am pretty pleased that they opted for simple flavors instead of trying to fancy them up with SWEET AND SOUR SUMMER TIME STRAWBERRY BLASTER, or something to that effect. Does anyone even know what those flavors are supposed to taste like anyways?

Grape - I won’t lie. I’m not a grape fan. To me, grape flavored items do not taste like grapes at all (same could be said for watermelon). The flavoring of the grape sour gummi cruncher started out like a Popsicle brand classic grape ice pop and rounded out in the end like a big spoon full of Dimatapp. Maybe I’m traumatized from drinking my body weight in Dimatapp as a child, but this flavor is a pass from me.

Strawberry - Red candy in general is my go to as I find it the safe bet. Usually its strawberry or cherry, and in my eyes, you can’t really go wrong with that. The strawberry sour gummi cruncher delivered exactly what was expected. Nothing over the top, nothing new and exciting, just that classic strawberry that many of us are used to.

Lemon – To not include lemon in the flavor mixture of sour candy seems almost criminal. This sour gummi cruncher reminded me exactly of the flavor of a Lemonhead (take a guess on who makes those tasty candies); a delicious mixture of sweet and sour. I remember buying a small cache of Lemonheads off the ice cream truck every weekend and still love them to this day.

Lime - Lime, hands down is my favorite fruit flavor when it comes to candy. The flavoring of this final gummi cruncher reminded me of the lime suckers you would get as a kid from places like banks. No branding, just straight sugar on a white paper stick in a clear plastic wrap. This flavor was my favorite out of the four, nearly tied with lemon for the sweet and sour tasty balance.

Overall I enjoyed these candies, though I am not sure if would eat an entire bag this size. The picture on the outside makes the candy look way more smooth than what they are on the inside. The texture has that rough gritty sour (citric acid I am assuming) coating that will rub your tongue and roof of your mouth raw if you eat too many. I was expecting more chewy than hard candy, but was surprised when I went for the chomp and nearly broke my teeth and jaw. The gummy inside is more of a gummy solid than a true gummy to me, and the entire mixture gets completely stuck in your teeth if you decide to chew the entire thing as a whole.

Peeps // Red Velvet // Limited Edition

Posted in Confectionaries

Well well well…

Hey friends! Who’s ready for some tasty holiday reviews? I have been on a rather long hiatus – actually I have no idea how I’ve managed to go nearly a year without posting – where does the time go? Oh yeah – work.

So with the onset of the holidays – which I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you are into that sort of thing – we get an array of delicious holiday flavored… things! I feel like as a child, Peeps were originally just an Easter food, but it seems that there is now a Peep for every holiday, which I’m totally okay with because I love these tasty little marshmallow dollops.

Red velvet is something I’ve personally never really been into. Don’t get me wrong, I like the flavor, but I feel like most red velvet cakes that I have eaten have been way too dry, not to mention that its pretty customary for them to have cream cheese frosting, while tasty, doesn’t usually agree with my lactose intolerant old lady body. What is red velvet anyways?

a rich cocoa-flavored cake with a distinctive reddish color, typically prepared as a layer cake with buttercream or cream cheese icing.

Wow thanks internet! So, red… chocolate. Got it.

IMG_2824

First bite was okay. They tasted like cocoa to me – which is pretty much what I was expecting. I think what I found the most disappointing was the fact that they were dipped in cream flavored fudge, which tasted nothing like cream cheese or buttercream frosting. I think that had the fudge been flavored more, that it would have really sold this flavor for me, but honestly I was pretty underwhelmed. White fudge in general to me tastes kind of generic and cheap, and I feel like even a slight addition of butter flavor to the fudge would have changed the flavor profile to more align with that of Red Velvet and not a tuxedo hot chocolate.

IMG_2825(I feel like the one on the left is leaning into the picture saying “Hey let me get in on that selfie”)

Texture: 4/5 – In general, I love the texture of Peeps. I think the sanding sugar on the outside mixed with the fluffy mallow on the inside makes for the best combination of just a little crunchy. If you like sand in your food. Which apparently I do.

Smell: 3.5/5 – These smell of cocoa when you open the package, but something about it seems slightly off. I can’t put my finger on it, but it just doesn’t smell overly appealing.

Appearance: 5/5 – I think out of all of the holiday Peeps (bird version) that these are the prettiest. The deep red sanding sugar makes me think of velvet and I like how they are slightly mixed into the white fudge dip at the bottom.

Taste: 3/5 - These were okay. The cocoa flavor is there, but not overly present, and when you take a bite with the cream flavored fudge on the bottom, its completely lost. As I said previous, I think that had the fudge been more cream cheese flavor, that it would have paired with the cocoa flavoring better versus completely steamrolling over it. I don’t foresee myself buying these again.

Purchased at Target

Angie’s – Spooky Candy Corn Flavored Kettle Corn

Posted in Chips, Confectionaries

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… no it’s not Christmas, it’s Halloween time! Halloween is my most favorite holiday of the entire year. This is the time of the year that I find things in stores that I consider every day decor not to mention candy galore! I love candy corn, but rarely eat it outside of this time of the year. I am also somewhat of a candy corn purist, forget that harvest corn mix and chocolate corn and all of the other corns, give me the plain jane, ole stand by candy corn. Kettle corn on the other hand is not something that I can only enjoy in the fall. There is a local outdoor auction/farmers market that has a vendor that makes kettle corn that is absolutely divine. The thought of combining a sweet and salty treat with delicious candy corn sounds like a match made in heaven.

20131007-201930.jpg

I really like the design of the bag, but the popcorn pictured on the outside of the bag is slightly misleading. I cracked open the bag and was immediately greeted with the sweet smell of candy corn. I’m not going to lie, this stuff smells SO good. But like I mentioned before, it didn’t really look like the picture on the outside of the bag. I was expecting fluffy kernels of corn drizzled in flavor but was met with a bag of bits and pieces. Despite the bag of popcorn crumbles, I pressed on and took a bite. WOW – I knew nothing good was going to come of this. The popcorn was slightly sweet and slightly salty with a nice overtone of sweetness from the drizzle. I don’t know if I would describe the flavor of the drizzle as candy corn, but more like cake frosting, but either way, it was really good.

20131007-201942.jpg

I also noticed that my bag of popcorn seemed to be a little overcooked, borderline burnt. This would please my Mom greatly as she loves her popcorn charred, but I don’t think that it impacted the taste much. The flavoring on the popcorn is really melty and my bag was one giant popcorn ball when I opened it. I adopted this fancy fingertip bag holding technique that I used while enjoying this snack to keep the body heat from my hands from melting it even more.

20131007-201957.jpg

Texture : 3/5 – The popcorn in this bag was slightly  stale tasting. I think this was partially from the coating on the popcorn that made it moist. Also, HUSK city. So many popcorn kernel husks.

Smell : 5/5 – This smells so good. I would wear this as a perfume if I could.

Appearance : 2/5 – This is solely based on the appearance on the outside of the package vs the appearance of the actual popcorn itself. My bag lacked the fluffy kernels that were pictured on the outside.

Taste : 4/5 – This treat is delicious. If it was available year round at Target, I would most likely buy it semi-regularly. The combination of sweet and salty popcorn and the sweet drizzle makes for a great snack when you can’t figure out which to choose. My only complains are that my popcorn was a little overcooked and the drizzle was REALLY melty. Licking your hand isn’t exactly the most cute thing to do in the world while eating a bag of popcorn, but its just that good.

Klondike Caramel – The Candy!

Posted in Candy

For most of my years of employment I have worked in a various form of retail. I know the tricks of the trade to make consumers buy things, product placement, if I’m really getting a deal on that item that is on sale, etc. One thing that was ingrained into my brain during the beginning years of my retail life was the saying “Eye level is buy level!” My old district manager used to say that as some sort of retail chant that would take him to sales heaven. It has always stuck with me, and to this day I still joke about it. But! There is some truth to this mantra. The items that stores want you to buy are often put in the middle sections of the aisles. Why do they put all the bad for you food at kids eye level? Because they know that as soon as the child sees the brightly packaged food, they HAVE to have it. So where am I going with this?

I spotted these candy morsels on the very bottom shelf, slightly pushed aside in the check out line of Walmart the other day. I’m sure you know the ole saying “What would you doooOOOooo for a Klondike bar?” Want the truth? Not much. I honestly don’t care for Klondike bars because I don’t like the chocolate they use on the outside of their perfectly square ice creams, although I will eat the hell out of a Choco Taco. I was not expecting to find these tucked away on a bottom shelf, but in the more predominate section of the candy section, but I guess they haven’t been jumped into the gang yet.

20130930-210006.jpg

Now I find it a little weird that they had to proclaim ‘The Candy!’ on the outside of the package. Were they concerned that if they put a box of these on the shelf without the warning that someone would think that stores were trying to sell thawed ice cream at checkout stands? I was slightly apprehensive about buying these because of my dislike of their ice cream, but I figured that at less than a dollar, what have I got to lose?

As I was putting groceries away I completely forgot that I purchased these, shows the lasting impression they made eh? But I was excited to try them because I like caramel a lot. I tend to shy away from caramel because I have 16 fillings in my mouth, and the thought of yanking one out is enough to make me pass up the treat entirely, but a girl wants what a girl wants, right?

I opened the package and was… expecting a little more. Literally. I’m not sure why I was expecting more, the package is not very big, but the pieces were about the size of.. the middle of a nickel and a quarter. quickel. I bit into one of the pieces and was surprised. The caramel was buttery and soft and the chocolate was okay. Note that on the package it says chocolate flavored coating. It could be wax for all I know. The coating still reminded me of the outside of a Klondike bar, but the ratio of chocolate coating to caramel is quite small, so you hardly taste it.

20130930-210033.jpg

Texture : 4/5 – The texture of this candy is nice. The caramel is smooth and chewy, and the chocolate coating is not bad. It could be worse, it could be coated in Palmers chocolate – gaaaa-ross.

Smell : 3/5 – The smell of the candy before you bite into has a noticeable chocolate smell. Nothing spectacular.

Appearance : 3/5 -I get that they were modeling the appearance of these after their famed ice cream treat, but they were pretty lack luster in the appearance department. They had that nice white film that chocolate gets when it is old, but my guess is that it was probably from being frozen or refrigerated during transport vs age.

Taste : 3/5 -These were OK – but they are no Rolo. I really enjoyed the caramel in the middle. I tend to like my caramel more on the chewy side vs the gooey side, so these worked out nicely. Due to the size of the candy, the chocolate coating wasn’t overpowering like I was expecting it to be. I could take or leave these. One thing that I do wish that they would have done is done a no frills wrapping on each chocolate piece so I did not feel obligated to eat the entire package because I didn’t want to scrounge around for a bag to put the others in, but that’s just me.

So what would YOU do for a Klondike bar? Or candy?

Skittles – Darkside

Posted in Candy

Hello!

I hope everyone is doing well this fine eve – I myself am taking a trip to the darkside. No, no, I am not watching a marathon of the Star Wars flicks and contemplating who I would use the force grip on, I am enjoying Skittles new offering Darkside Skittles. Skittles has a few incarnations that I really enjoy, the classic and the tropical being my favorite, but according to this package, I am about to embark on a trip to the other side of the rainbow. (I though the other side of the rainbow was the same as the beginning, who knew!)

You may have noticed a small little cat face poking out behind the package of Skittles, that would be Jimothy and he refused to occupy himself while I attempted to take a picture – I guess I have a new assistant.

20130112-102244.jpg

So what flavors you ask compose the flavors of the darkside? Pomegranate, dark berry, midnight lime, forbidden fruit, and blood orange. So what you’re telling me Skittles is that you came up with a new flavor and rebranded the rest to make them spooooooky. I also though the release of these seemed a little mistimed – Halloween would have been a better gimmick, no? Anyways, like a moth to a flame, I couldn’t help myself and may or may not have devoured the entire bag in one sitting. Dear Internet, riddle me this…

How do you eat your various colored candies?

Loading ... Loading ...
 

Personally? I organize them by color and then eat them based on flavor preference, starting with my least favorite first. In the event that there is no difference in flavor vs colors (i.e. M&Ms) I organize them by color and eat them based on color preference, starting with my least favorite – which is brown in case you were wondering.

I started with blood orange, since I am not a huge fan of orange flavored things. They were OK – I noticed no difference in flavor than from the regular Skittles. Next I moved on to the forbidden fruit. What is a forbidden fruit anyways? According to the Bible, its an apple, but these are definitely not apple flavored. I did not care for whatever fruit flavor this was as it was a tad bit soapy. Next we have dark berry, which tasted like your standard nondescript berry flavored mixture, leaving you to wonder which berry it actually is. Pomegranate followed, which I also thought tasted a slight bit soapy as well. Finally we have midnight lime. Lime flavored candies are probably my favorite when it comes things not consisting of chocolate, so I always save it for last. These also tasted like the standard lime flavor that you would find in a regular Skittles bag.

Overall, I think that this mixture is not bad, but I think the flavors could have been a little more adventurous, considering what Jelly Belly can do with a jelly bean. So far the only place that I have spotted these have been in the checkout lines at my local Target.

20130112-102253.jpg

Texture: 3/5 – There is nothing different about these texture wise than a regular bag of Skittles. If you have never sampled Skittles before, they have a hard candy shell with a chewy inside.

Smell: 3/5 - The bag smelled like a fruit mixture with a LOT of sugar added in.

Appearance: 3/5 - The colors used reminded me of a mixture of the tropical Skittles and the Skittles Riddles. Want to up the ante? Make the entire bagful black and make me guess and what I am eating – thats a little bit of evil right there.

Taste: 3/5- Overall I thought the collection was OK. Like I said above, I do not think that the flavors used were extremely imaginative, as most of them were just their standard flavors given new names, but I would buy them again… If I couldn’t find a bag of Tropical.

Peanut Butter Cup Showdown!

Posted in Candy

In honor of the three day weekend I have this weekend, I thought I would do a taste test between three different peanut butter cups. I have had the Unjunked peanut butter cups for a couple weeks, and picked up the Sunspire ones tonight while at the store searching for some chips to enjoy for an all night Netflix marathon of GI Joe, Star Trek, and Rainbow Brite.

20121111-195524.jpg

I figured I would start with the ole’ standby – Reese’s. I absolutely love chocolate and peanut butter together. Its like Hall and Oates, Simon and Garfunkel, She & Him – they just go together. My Reese’s peanut butter cup was nothing short of amazing. The chocolate was nice and smooth, and the peanut butter had just the right amount of sweetness.

Next up were the Unjunked Unreal77 peanut butter cups – Now if you have been following my blog at all, I reviewed the Unjunked chocolate candy pieces, and they were not good. I was hoping that the addition of chocolate to the mix would help spice things up, I was wrong. The chocolate outside was not bad, but the peanut butter? Good grief. It was a weird chalky powerdy peanut butter mixture inside that had the faint taste of peanuts. What have they done to the beloved peanut butter cup? I saw on a couple of blogs that people had planned to give these out to kids trick-or-treating, WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?! I would have rather had pennies or a walnut dropped into my pillowcase instead of this atrocity.

Finally with hopes that I could finish off on a good note, I sampled the Sunspire peanut butter cups. Like the Unjunked, they use nothing artificial in their candy, and I was concerned that I would be faced with the same gross flavor again. These cups are slightly smaller than the other two, about the size of a half dollar. But they make up for the lack of size by giving you three in the package instead of two.

I popped the whole thing in my mouth, figuring that I would go big or go home, and was pleasantly surprised. The chocolate was smooth, as was the peanut butter, unlike the peanut butter used in a Reese’s, which can be gritty at times. If you had told me that these were all natural and contained nothing artificial, I wouldn’t believe you. I think the biggest problem I have with companies trying to create healthy candy alternatives is that they don’t even attempt to make it taste good. I’m sorry, I’ll sacrifice a few calories, a few grams of sugar in my diet, and a few grams of fat to eat something I actually enjoy as a treat instead of trying to convince myself that the “candy” I’m eating doesn’t taste like pencil shavings.

20121111-195531.jpg

Texture:

  • Reese’s: 3/5 – The chocolate on the Reese’s is always smooth, but its a hit and miss sometimes when it comes to how gritty the peanut butter is on the inside.
  • Unjunked: 1/5 -The chocolate on the outside was OK, but the powdery peanut butter inside made it practically inedible. Infact, the second cup made it right into the trash can.
  • Sunspire: 5/5 – The chocolate and peanut butter were both incredibly smooth which made for an enjoyable taste.

Smell:

  • Reese’s: 3/5 – The immediate smell I encountered when opening the packaging was peanut butter, not similar to a jar of peanut butter, but fake peanut butter.
  • Unjunked: 2/5 – The only smell that I found present was that of the peanut butter powder. It reminded me of the smell of a peanut butter chocolate Power Bar. Peanut-y but slightly medicinal.
  • Sunspire: 4/5 – I was greeted with the smell of rich chocolate when I took a nice whiff of the packaging of these candies.

Apperance:

  • Reese’s: 3/5 – It never fails that I seem to get Reese’s that have some sort of appearance problem. In the case of the one that I had this time, the peanut butter was not covered completely.
  • Unjunked: 4/5 – I thought that the Unreal stamp on the peanut butter was pretty cool. Despite so far not enjoying anything from their product line,  I really enjoy their packaging.
  • Sunspire: 2/5 - Nothing spectacular about these, I wish that it would have had a more polished look by having a smooth top, but thats just me being a snob.

Taste:

  • Reese’s: 4/5 – Normally Reese’s is my go to candy when I am craving chocolate and peanut butter together. If I had to choose one candy to eat for the rest of my life, it would be these.
  • Unjunked: 1/5 – Not good. I see what they are trying to do, and its just not working. The omission of certain ingredients with the mission to make it healthier has left it tasting almost inedible in my book.
  • Sunspire: 5/5 – Totally out of nowhere with this one. I was expecting them to be OK because they were all natural, but these were EXTREMELY good. I also like the fact that they are reasonably priced (just a dollar at Bel-Air!) for being a healthier alternative. If you are looking for a tasty treat that won’t completely kill your waistline and is not chalked full of preservatives and processed ingredients, pick these up, you won’t be disappointed.

So in closing I would rank these three peanut butter cups in the following order: 1) Sunspire, 2) Reese’s, and 3) Unjunked.

I hope you all have a great 3 day weekend and thank you to all the veterans and active duty personnel (who will one day be veterans) for all they have done to allow me to speak my mind freely.

Smarties Candy Canes

Posted in Candy

Candy canes have to be probably one of my favorite Christmas candies out there. However, I will usually only buy them after Christmas when they go on super-clearance for 30 cents a box. Then I turn into a complete hoarder. I absolutely love mint flavored things. I enjoy honing a candy cane into a sharp spear that I envision poking someone with – but usually just end up poking myself. I also enjoy candy canes when they become somewhat stale and chewy.

This year however, the snack food fairy left these with the Sugar Cookie Peeps and Hot Cocoa 3 Musketeers. I really like Smarties (the American version). I have also been known to enjoy the tropical flavored Tums and Necco wafers on occasion, so this should come as a surprise to no one. In 2006 I went to Canada and got a McFlurry for my friend at McDonald’s. Wait, reverse. I did not go to Canada just to get my friend a McFlurry – I was there on a 2 week vacation. He asked me to get him a Smarties McFlurry. I watched as they made it and was confused when they dumped chocolate chunks into the soft serve ice cream. Where was the chalky candy I was used to? After confronting the McDonald’s staff – and making myself look like a huge ass, I found out that there is a chocolate candy indeed named Smarties. CONFUSING. But this is not the case with these candy canes – Smarties plus candy cane? Could be good.

20121108-191022.jpg

I was curious how these would capture the flavor of Smarties as they each have their own individual flavor. None of them are overpowering by any means, but there is a distinct taste between all of them. The white ones are my favorite. I practically shoved the candy cane up my nose attempting to smell these – but alas, I was left without any clues as to what I would be sampling. I took a small bite and was greeted with a cherry? fruit punch? something? flavor. I wasn’t sure if the candy cane was going to have a dynamic flavor throughout to compliment the different flavors in the button sized rolled candy. I took a few more bites and decided that these candy canes taste like a cherry Sucrets, talk about a disappointment. I managed to convince myself to eat half of the candy cane before ditching it in the trashcan because I couldn’t tolerate the flavor any longer. Luckily I had some real Smarties in my stash to pacify my woes.

20121108-191028.jpg

Texture: 4/5 – Has the normal texture of a candy cane. No gritty, chalky, sandy texture to be found.

Smell: 0/5 – Completely non-existent.

Appearance: 5/5 – The colors sort of matched the colors of a roll of Smarties. I would say the choices were visually appealing and I kind of want to invent spring time candy canes so that I can look at these. I guess I could just hold onto them until April and then I would have springtime candy canes.

Taste: 1/5 – These were not good. Sometimes my brain tried to trick me into thinking they were fruit punch, but really, they were just a cough drop in a candy cane shape. Reserve these as Christmas tree decorations.

3 Musketeers – Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows

Posted in Candy

Good evening everyone! Did you all remember to set your clocks back (if you’re in an area that does this antiquated tradition)? Despite the “extra” hour of sleep, I for one am beat and could doze off right now. It doesn’t help that its not even 6pm yet an darker than dark outside.

When I was a kid, my favorite candy was a tie between 3 Musketeers and 100 Grand. I can no longer stomach the thought of eating a 100 Grand due to overkill but every now and then when the mood strikes me, I’ll go for a 3 Musketeers. I especially liked the mint flavor that they came out with and sadly the coconut flavor was a bit of a let down. There is only so much you can do with a flavor pallet of chocolate and nougat, but I appreciate that they are trying to stay in the snack food game by introducing new flavors.

20121104-174946.jpg

Holiday candy is all over the place in various stores. It was like Halloween had never happened. I was a bit surprised to see these when the snack fairy brought them home, because isn’t the flavoring of a 3 Musketeers kind of like a hot chocolate already? I had to give them a try regardless.

I had to eat a couple to form a decent opinion, honestly if you told me that these were regular 3 Musketeers minis in holiday wrappers, I’d believe you. There is nothing that really sets these apart from its predecessor. The only difference I could taste was a slight change in the flavor of the chocolate. It tasted a bit like they mixed the powder from a package of Swiss Miss into the chocolate when they made it, pat themselves on the back for coming up with a new flavor, and called it a day.

20121104-175909.jpg

Texture: 3/5 – The chocolate on these seemed a little more gooey than a regular 3 Musketeers. Not good for stealth chocolate eats.

Smell: 5/5 – The smell of these candies is of a delicious chocolate treat.

Appearance: 4/5 – They look nice. Nice enough to eat. I got nothin’.

Taste: 2/5 – This rating is based solely on how they execute the hot cocoa and marshmallow flavor. I think it falls rather short. They are good but nothing spectacular. Put them in your candy dish at work.
