Reese Big Cup Stuffed with Pieces

Review: Reese Big Cup Stuffed with Pieces

When faced with the unenviable convenience-store dilemma of choosing between Reese Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces, your choice, until recently, has been an unsatisfactory “pick one or buy both.” What kind of horrible world do we live in?

Review: Kerr’s Maple Kisses

Around our house, maple syrup coats our pancakes, sweetens our smoky chipotle chili and mingles with lemon on our standby oven-roasted baby potatoes.

When most well-adjusted, liberty-loving North Americans think “chocolate chips,” it’s the classic cookie that comes to mind, not potato chips drenched in chocolate.

Review: Stride Sour Patch Kids raspberry chewing gum

Whether you appreciate or loathe Stride’s new Sour Patch Kids raspberry chewing gum will depend less on the flavour and more on what you expect from a piece of gum. Should it freshen your breath and make you feel all cool and minty inside? Or should it be a chewable little low-calorie treat to add […]

Review: Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy

It’s not every day you find a chocolate bar with “Carbon Dioxide” listed in the ingredients. As Dairy Milk continues in their frantic mission to add just about everything imaginable into a chocolate bar – toffee bits, cookie dough, pretzel chunks, cashews, coconut, etc. – this Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy bar stood […]
