Candy Review: Ice Breakers Iced Tea Lemon

Ice Breakers Iced Tea Lemon

I’m an easy target for the impulse buys at the grocery store checkout counters. I think it’s a good time to scan the candies and see if there’s anything new, and then of course if something catches my eye, I have to try it. Take, for example, these Ice Breakers in Iced Tea Lemon flavor. I have long been a fan of Ice Breakers candies, and I usually have a container of the Ice Breakers sours in my car. I am also a fan of black tea, so these Ice Breakers sure seemed like a winning combination!

Candy Review: IceBreakers Orange Pacs

IceBreakers Pacs

One of my lucky scores from Brian’s trip to the All Candy Expo was this odd little orange box from IceBreakers. I had no idea what to expect, but I knew it contained the sugar-free sweetener xylitol. After Brian’s bad reaction to xylitol, I’ve volunteered myself to try products containing it.

The box itself is a little larger than a pill box, and bright orange. It was only after I had ripped off the top that I saw the small writing saying “slide open.” Oops. Oh well, easier access for me.

Inside I found a bunch of little orange packets. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do. From the feel of them, they were probably edible, but I wasn’t positive – the packaging could be a little clearer on that point. Going with my gut feeling, I popped one in my mouth. Just as I expected, the pouch dissolved and released the sweet powder from the inside. Later, as I was trying to get the top back on, I turned the box just so and caught the writing on the bottom in such a way that I was able to read “Place on tongue and let dissolve.” Once again, I feel stupid.

Twix White Chocolate

Here are a few new candies I’ve tried recently and some quick reviews of them:

  • M-Azing Peanut Butter: When I first saw the commercials for M’Azing I wasn’t impressed. M&Ms in chocolate? Big deal. Well, I was hunting for some chocolate a few days ago and found a mini M-Azing Peanut Butter in my daughter’s Valentine’s Day goody bag and thought I’d try it (don’t tell me daughter). It was good. Really good. The mini M&M’s are filled with peanut butter and are a great mix with the chocolate bar. Very sweet, slightly salty – VERY good.
  • Twix White Chocolate: I generally steer clear of white chocolate because I just don’t like it. My wife picked up this limited edition Twix bar and it was surprisingly good – I’m not sure it was better than a regular Twix, but it was definitely better than I expected. It had lots of caramel (which is a good thing).
  • IceBreakers Ice Cubes: My sister gave me one of these and I wasn’t impressed. It wasn’t bad, but I was expecting more from it.
  • Rice Krispies Caramel Kazaam Crunch: I picked one of these up to munch on my way back from Atlanta. It reeked of caramel but tasted horrible. The caramel tasted “fake”. It has a layer of substandard chocolate on the bottom. There was not enough (any) marshmallow keeping it together so it seemed dry. You should definitely pass on these.
  • Belly Flops: I forgot how good Jelly Belly jellybeans are. After writing about JBFlops recently, I got to try some and they are fabulous. There are some that are rejects (two or more stuck together generally) but the vast majority of the flops seem perfectly fine to me…and are quite tasty.
