The strange thing about this treat was the powder.
It was purple and it changed to its light brown colour when the milk made contact. Now I’m no colour expert but I’m pretty sure purple and white do not make brown.

Apparently though it’s a “Genuine Caribbean Taste” so it can’t be too bad, right?
My first reaction.
It’s not that I didn’t like it I just didn’t know what to think of it. It tasted fruity but it doesn’t taste like any fruit I’ve ever known, that and it had a bit of a cinnamon kick to it. The look is not disgust as much as its just confusion.
Allison had this to say:
Mmmm Fruity goodness.

So we picked some up and many are they good, just on their own too.
The second suggestion in this equation is the way Allison likes her chocolate, with a little peanut butter. I watch her eat a few of these yummy disks and couldn’t resist. I dare you to even try.
My tummy is filled with yummy.

Well I’ve posted the new Bull’s Eyes review, I don’t want to give it away but I can tell you that I still have a half filled bag of them sitting downstairs. I wanted to have the Lifesavers article done but it looks like that probably won’t hit the site until later in the week, with the preview of it on the Candy of the Month Club members section.
Other than that I have a bunch of French candy to review and I might even have a few extra treats to give away in the Candy of the Month Club. I’m tired now; I’m going to go to sleep.
1) This blog really isn’t that funny, I should try and make it more entertaining.
2) I just agreed to an interview from someone and I don’t know where, when, or even if it’s going to be published for anything.
This should be interesting, and hey that would solve my first problem.

This was something I’ve never tried before; it’s called Mars Delights. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again if you think you’re eating good chocolate in North America then it might be true, only however if you paid an arm and a leg for it.
Europeans know how it’s done. Even the simple Mars bar type treats are made of decent quality chocolate. I am wondering however if this picture is appetizing or disgusting.

So I called, and here’s what I got:
Fun times my friend, fun times.
So I’m always trying to think of new and interesting articles I can write for Candy Critic. Sometimes I get a flood of ideas and other times it’s a little dry. Well today was a lucky day. Not only did I get an idea but I think it’s a pretty good one. I’m going to do an article about how similar candy flavors and real flavors actually are.
Basically I’m going to pick a fruity candy, then buy it’s equivalent in real fruit and do a taste test. I was inspired to do this while walking through a marked today. The big problem however was choosing the candy. My first 2 choices where Skittles or Starburst, fine fruity snacks that always seem to tote how full of flavor they are. Skittles on Candy Critic have been a little overused, although not reviewed (I should change that) so I figured I’d go for Starburst. Well on a shopping excursion to my local drug store I came into Starburst sour and Starburst Cream, but not the regular. Seeing as the fruit was going to be neither sour nor creamy I didn’t think this would be fair. Then I say it, a roll of lifesavers starring me in the face.
Brilliant, the perfect treat. Life Savers have been around forever, their flavors although added upon have never changed, and I get to buy a pineapple, I love those things. So there’s the basis for the article, good fruity fun awaits.

Right now I'm working like a dog to get the member's section of the candy of the month club site up and running. I'll be sure to let you all know when it's online. Because of this I've been neglecting the reviewing process as of late, fortunately I do many reviews in advance so if I have some down time from reviewing I can keep the new weekly posts of reviews online.
Well I'm not sure what else to say right now. I'm sure things here will evolve. Also you should note that I'm not the only person contributing to this BLOG. The whole staff at Candy Critic has the ability to post things, so you never know what might come up.
