Candy Review: Joyva Jell Rings

Joyva Jell Rings

As I discovered while doing my Great Chocolate Experiments, there are very few candies that aren’t improved by a good coating of chocolate. (Other food products, however, are a different story.) Chocolate-covered marshmallows are my sentimental favorite, but I’m also fond of chocolate-covered gummies – sometimes it’s nice to have a denser, more substantial texture to contrast with the crisp chocolate coating.

Unfortunately, chocolate-coated gummies are a lot harder to find than chocolate-coated marshmallows – I can name Muddy Bears, the chocolate-coated jellies in Bridge Mixture, and Canada’s Big Turk bar. And now, I can add Joyva Jell Rings to that short list.

Manufactured by Brooklyn’s Joyva Corp., these raspberry-flavored, chocolate-covered jelly rings appear to be completely vegan – they’re thickened with agar-agar, a seaweed derivative, rather than the more usual gelatin, and the dark chocolate coating contains no dairy products.

Candy Review: Joyva Sesame Crunch

Joyva Sesame Crunch

After a night of taste-testing tons of candy, I was ready for something unique and delicious. I found what I was looking for in a sample box sent to me by the people at Halvah. The Joyva Sesame Crunch bar has a wonderfully distinctive flavor and texture. The bar is thin and flat and made up of four simple ingredients: sesame seeds, sugar, corn syrup, and honey. It’s Awesomely Addictive.

My favorite candies are usually coated, filled, or mixed with chocolate, but the Sesame Crunch bar is in a league of its own. It’s slightly sticky, crispy, and satisfying, and naturally honey-sweet. If you buy the bars from, they’re only fifty cents per bar. The waistline expansion factor isn’t bad either—a 1.125oz bar has 190 calories, and according to the manufacturer, the candy’s kosher.

I haven’t looked for the Sesame Crunch bars in stores because I still have one left from my sample stash, but I’ll be on the hunt during my planned Labor Day Weekend candy shopping spree. I gotta have some more!
