It's Another PEZ Review - PEZ Grape

I told you last week that we would be posting another PEZ review online, and  here it is.  I'm not sure how exciting that is, but it's something we've had to get off our plate. We're still missing a few PEZ flavours, but that will have to wait for another time.

Note - I think next week we'll be having a review-a-thon, and I'm thinking Asian Ice Cream treats.

Do You Like PEZ? How About PEZ Reviews? - Lemon PEZ

I have to be honest, I wrote this review a few months back. I tell you this because I wanted to write a brand spanking new candy review for you guys, but I can't. I hurt my tongue. I hurt my tongue eating crab, and it sucks. I bit my tongue and it left a small scratch, well that scratch didn't do so well (most likely because I've been eating a lot of acidic foods lately) and it got worse.  It's nothing that won't go away, but frankly the idea of eating anything that isn't totally bland (no acids or salt) sounds awful right now. Fortunately I have a pretty big list of reviews ready to go for just such an occasion, so you guys don't miss out.

While digging through the list I came across this review for lemon PEZ, and it seemed appropriate that this review should go up ASAP. I also have a review for grape PEZ waiting to go up, and if my mouth doesn't heal by Monday, I think I'll post it then.  I should at some point make sure that I have every flavour of PEZ represented on candycritic.org, since it's truly one of the classic candies.

It's A New Episode of Chris, Why Would You Eat That!!!


I've decided that Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!! needs a bit of sprucing up. After editing this episode I realized it's just the same thing over and over again.  Next month's episode is already recorded, but the new year hopes to bring a new theme to the show.  I'm still working on the details, but hopefully it'll be a little more dynamic and fun, while still watching me eat questionable things.

Either way, I hope you still had fun watching me drink this horrible drink, as noted we discovered later that it did in fact have chunks of grass jelly in it.

I Was Inspired About Today's New Candy Review - Raspberry Licorice Fudge

I wasn't inspired by the candy itself, in fact if you read the review it's pretty much a failure. What inspired me was a friend with whom we had dinner this weekend. Our friend is from Sweden and she asked me about what kind of Swedish candies I liked. We were talking, and I remembered some of the Swedish candies I've reviewed, in particular a red licorice fudge that I had sitting in my archive to be published. I decided that today would be the perfect day to pull out this review, even though it wasn't that great.

Another Apple Treat To Review - Johnny Apple Treats

Last week we posted a review of a very disappointing Hostess Apple Pie, this week we thought we'd start off with another apple review. I thought that the idea of doing a whole month themed around apple reviews would be fun, but then I realized that I don't really like apple flavoured candies. My next move was to check our archive, to see if there were any old unpublished apple candy reviews, but there wasn't anything. So I guess that means this is not going  to be a month filled with apple themed treats, but two new reviews in a row with an apple theme.
