Candy Review: Vertigo – Candy & Chocolate Flavored Pops

Vertigo Bag

Name brands don’t influence me to buy things. Flashy packages, tempting images, a cute cartoon face or a really cool name… those are things that grab my attention. This isn’t the best logic, but it’s the way I am. You can imagine my expression when I discovered Vertigo. The name alone makes me imagine colorful Cheshire cats with swirling eyes and giant grins!

Vertigo are new chocolate lollipops from Topps. They are already on the shelves at various locations (I first spotted them at Wal-Mart for about half a dollar each). They are a fusion of two great candies: one side (about 3/4 of it) is a perfectly rich chocolate and the other side is a swirled hard candy. They come on a sturdy brown plastic stick that matches the color of the chocolate so well that I thought the stick was edible, too. (They aren’t.)

Vertigo comes in three flavors:

Chocolate/Cookies & Cream: First sensation in mouth: Mmmm… Creamy, delicious flavor. Very smooth texture. It’s hard to resist biting into the chocolate side! It’s a creamy chocolate that melts on your tongue nicely (if you lick at it). The candy side is truly delicious. Once I finally nibbled/licked/bit off the chocolate side, the hard candy side is left. Now that I’ve disassembled the shape, the flat top edge presses against the roof of my mouth. It rests better beside my cheek.

Chocolate/Caramel: Just what you’d expect in a caramel flavor, only tangier. The flavor isn’t quite as good as the Cookies & Cream flavor, but still good. The pops last a long while if you don’t bite them.

Chocolate/Strawberry: I purposely saved this one for last. I knew this would be the best! It tastes like it was made with real strawberries! It’s amazingly good. This would be awesome after a nice dinner.

I definitely recommend these to everyone!!!

Editor’s note: I tried these too and I agree – they are really good. The chocolate is much better than I expected and provides a nice contrast to the hard candy. I can’t imagine anyone not liking these.

    Indeed! They’re really tasty!
    I hope Vertigo Pops make their way overseas!
    I did get mine at Wal*Mart. Sadly, I went back to buy more, and they were gone. I hope they’ll be back in mass amounts! Hee hee! ^_^
    When I bought mine, they were individual. I hope they will continue to be sold individually, as I wasn’t too fond of the caramel one. The strawberry one is amazing. o.O

    The Vertigo pops are perfect for dipping in coffee or cappicino also. And since they are on a plastic stick there is no soggy stick!

    The Amazon website listed them for a box of 24 for $14.99. Not bad. Currently, the gas station by my house has them at 3 for a $1.00! Great price! Great product! I have almost bought all of them at the gas station over a period of a week’s time! They are my new favorite!! Great with black coffee!!

    I find these to be disgusting. :( The chocolate tastes cheap and waxy and they’re quite skimpy on the topping. They’re inexpensive though, so I threw mine away without guilt. Sadly was a miss for me though.

    I just saw these in a CVS and remembered Candy Addict’s review. The strawberry one was awesome. Did not like the cookies’n'cream so much. I bought only individual ones so I didn’t get to try the carmel. Only quibble is I really disliked the plastic stick. Paper would have been better.

    I LOVE vertigo candy!!!!!!!!!!!!And I mean it I can actually marry that peice of heaven!!I was searching for them for a month!!!!!!! I finally found them in Walmart!!! And there were sadly 2 or 3 left I bought like 2 caramel and strawberry. I ate the strawberry one first and it was love at first bite! And sadly I was finished then I unwrapped the caramel one, I usually love the taste of caramel but this time I wanted to spit it out and gargle viniger. It made my taste buds wanted to commit suicide! The caramel part tasted I can’t explain it! Maybe yucky?I emidiately threw that THING away! I’m pretty scaried to taste the cookies and cream one now>.

    I was searching for these lollipops FOREVER!! I looked in almost every store I could think of..Wal*Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, WaWa, 7 Eleven, The Dollar Store and today I finally found them at Target! They didn’t have the bags of them but they had them individually wrapped near one of the check-out lines. I bought one of each: strawberry, caramel, and cookies & creme. I ate the strawberry first and loved it. The chocolate isn’t too bad…definitely nothing spectacular but it satisfies the craving. The strawberry candy by itself is not too hot but with the chocolate it’s tangy and sweet–very good. I couldn’t help myself and ate the caramel right after it. It was evey better than th estrawberry. I’ll try the cookies and creme tomorrow, hopefully it’s just as good as the other two!

    Oh gosh, I was excited when I first saw these, butthen I tried one and thought it was way horrible. Maybe I didn’t get the right flavor or eat it with the right things. Now I want to try again…
