Which came first—the chocolate chicken or the chocolate egg?

Cadbury Creme EggI’m not really sure when chocolate chickens were officially born, but it puts a smile on my face to know that they exist. What I can tell you is that chocolate eggs, at least in the form of the Cadbury Creme Egg we know today, first hatched in 1971, replacing an earlier type of creme-filled egg the company launched in 1923.

In the spirit of Easter, let’s talk more about Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Google+ Cadbury = Sweet, Edible Technology

Cadbury Google+

Candy is fun! Creative! Inventive! So what does any respectable candy company like Cadbury do when its Google+ page gets 500,000 “circlers” (fans)? …it celebrates by making a Google+ profile page out of chocolate!

How does one go about making an edible profile page? Well, the base is made of 1 kilogram (about 2.2 pounds) of milk chocolate. Followed by a layer of Cadbury Dream Chocolate. Then topped with layers of sculpted chocolate pieces all held together by chocolate glue. There are even edible inks printed on sugar papers to display fan photos. Amazing!


Candy Review: Stride Mega Mystery gum

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Gum,New Candy


Stride Mega Mystery gum

“Mega mystery” implies some serious mystery is about to happen. Considering a 10.0 on the Richter Scale is epic, I’d say “mega” would logically fall somewhere between a 7.0, known as “major”, and a 9.0, known as “great”, on the Mystery Richter Scale. Since Stride is known for it’s ridiculously long lasting gum, one can also assume that Mega Mystery gum has some seriously sustained mystery in store for us. All of these hypotheses hold true with this gum.

I don’t know what the heck is in it! The ingredients are of no help, either. I guess that would really ruin the surprise to have the mystery ingredient spelled out in plain sight, though, huh? “Natural and Artificial flavors” is the only clue we get. And, that’s no clue at all because, well, doesn’t that encompass every flavor that exists? The tie-died packaging also has every example of the color spectrum on it, so another dead-end.

Gum Review: Search for Spearmint Mini-Roundup Part 1

Spearmint Leaves

Some time ago, I bought a package of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum only to discover that the flavor had been changed dramatically. To put it mildly, the spearmint flavor I knew and loved had careened downhill and crashed into a muddy, mucky river. I wrote a review of it and a review of Wrigley’s other “improved” flavors. Since then I’ve been on a search to find a spearmint gum that matches my expectations of a good, mellow, sweet spearmint.

I’ve been slightly overwhelmed by the number of brands and varieties of spearmint-flavored gum. Without even looking very hard, I’ve found nine different varieties. Who knew spearmint could taste so many different ways? Trident alone makes three kinds of spearmint gum. It’s mind boggling.

It has been quite an adventure tasting all the varieties and thinking about the nuances in their differences and similarities. I’m feeling like quite the gum expert lately. And I have the freshest breath in the county.

Candy Review: Caramel Easter Egg Roundup

Caramel Easter Eggs

For me, one of the best things about Easter candy is the plethora of interesting chocolate Easter egg flavors. For some reason, this year I kept seeing caramel eggs everywhere. It’s like the Easter Bunny was laying them in my path in every store I visited. Being a Candy Addict, I couldn’t just ignore that kind of taunting and finally bought a bunch of different kinds to try.
