Candy In The Media - Cilantro Is The Devil!!!

I hate the stuff, it tastes like soap. When I ask people who like cilantro they tell me it's cool and refreshing, like soap can be sometimes. So I'm pretty sure there are a large group of people out in the world that like the taste of soap. After all, Thrills gum is still on the market.

We Have A New Late Night Review - Swedish Licorice

This weekend we're going to be posting a few licorice reviews. To help get us started we thought we would post a live review of one of the more extreme licorice's we're going to review. I thought I could handle it, as you can see from this video I couldn't.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get warnings for upcoming live reviews.

If you follow us on Patreon we'll let you know exactly when and what we're going to review.

Slight Change To Candy Critic Introducing, "This Past Weekend's Updates" - Tartufi Di Cioccolato

We're staring something new here on Candy Critic, and it's all about when we post new reviews. From now one we'll be posting at least one new review every weekend. Sometimes it'll just be one, sometimes a whole bunch of them, but we're going to focus on the weekends. Then, every Monday at this very time (when this blog was posted), we'll post a recap of the review(s) right here. Some weekends will be one simple review, sometimes we'll have a theme, sometimes we'll just dump a bunch of reviews. We're freeing up our weekdays to work on our vlogs and podcasts. Having said all of that, we're likely to break these rules and post new reviews on weekdays now and again as well, but you'll have to follow us on social media for those.

This past weekend we reviewed:

Tartufi Di Cioccolato, truly what chocolate truffles are all about.

If you're one of those, I need to know when it happens immediately type people, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter since we post the reviews immediately when they go online.

We'll also be posting our new reviews on Instagram as well.

Candy In The Media - A Documentary About Food and Love

Crown Candy from Kamau Bilal on Vimeo.

This is truly a beautiful documentary about how a 100 year old sweet shop/diner in St Louis thriving as well as building a community.  It's now a must stop for me next time I'm in the area.

This New Episode Of Chris, Why Would You Eat That?!! Proves Again That You Can Ruin Ice Cream

I keep hoping that ice cream would have the same effects on foods as chocolate. The idea that everything is better in ice cream form (much like the idea that everything is better covered in chocolate). As much as I'd like to believe this, I'm constantly proven wrong.

We Have 3 Days Of Lots Of Japanese Snacks. Starting With... - Baby Star Mini "Fried Noodles"

Last week we did a crazy candy review-a-thon, and in the same spirit we're going to continue this review-a-thon till Wednesday. The difference is we're going to focus on Japanese snacks, and we're hoping to post a whole bunch of reviews.  The strange thing is that we're likely going to post most of these reviews late at night for... reasons.

You can click here to read the first Japanese snack we're reviewing this week.

If you want to follow our Japanese review-a-thon, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

You can also follow us on Instagram to keep up with this insanity.

Candy In the Media - Don't Eat A Crayon Sandwich

Even if you think the Simpson's is the best show ever, and smarter than anything ever put on TV, eating Ralph Wiggum's grilled crayon sandwich is not a good idea.
