Review: Sugarpova Flirty Sour gummy candy

“Sugarpova? Doesn’t that sound kind of like … who is it … Sharapova? Maria? That tennis player? There’s no way that could be …” (Picks up package of gummies on the drugstore shelf, reads the back.) “Well, what the hell.

Review: Safeway Bakery Counter light fruitcake slice

Fruitcake doesn’t do anything for me. I think. See, I can’t say I’ve had all that much fruitcake in my life. Like many people, I tried it once or twice years ago, decided I didn’t like it, then neglected to try it again because I assumed I still didn’t like it. This is crazy, of […]

Review: Jelly Belly Chocolate Dips

I like Jelly Belly jelly beans enough to be able to pick my way around the nasty flavours in a bowl of assorted beans. Popcorn? Yuck. Same with just about all the “creamy” ones. And yet these new Dips Jelly Belly candies are new to me. NEAROF! was gifted a bag from America a few […]

Review: Allan Key Lime Pie Dessert Bites

I’ll admit that when I think of Allan, I think of candy canes and chocolate Easter bunnies. A bit of research revealed that the Allan Candy Company (allancandy.com) is a much more present force in our sugary lives than I had initially thought; along with their seasonal goodies, they make many of the brandless penny […]

Review: Cadbury Dairy Milk Orange chocolate bar

Orange and chocolate, we get along juuuusst fine. From the old Mocha Valencia days at Starbucks to the current seasonal deliciousness of Terry’s Chocolate Orange, I can’t get enough of the pairing. While I’ve tried Dairy Milk in the past, I’ve never sampled their orange-flavoured bar. A crazy sale price at Safeway convinced me to […]
