Question Marks

Recently, we had another reader who was stumped about a candy she remembered and came to us to help figure it out. Here is what Rosario said:

Can’t find this lollipop. It has three flavors the largest flavor was pineapple,then sour apple and the smallest amount of cherry. and it was cone shaped.

Ok, that’s not a lot to go on so I interrogated her and got this in the next email and then it was clear what she remembered:

  • Approximate year you had the candy?1988-91
  • Was the candy purchased individually or in a pack/bag of multiples? individually
  • What was the wrapping like? Colors? Designs? Paper? Foil? etc…… i think that it may be clear wrapping, plastic.
  • What was the size of the candy? Individual pieces? a bar? etc. If i remember right it was about as long as a regular size snicker bar, and the circumference of the end with the paper stick was about the size of a quarter, the other end was smaller then a pencil’s erasers. It was shaped like like a knights jousting weapon.
  • The the main flavor was pineapple, then something green and down by the paper stick it was red.

Has anyone else figured it out?

Candy Review: Das Foods’ Das Lolli Assortment

Das Lolli

When I think of lollipops, I think of, well… lollipops. I try not to read too much into the whole adult humor and related connotations that can be associated with such a candy. Apparently, the folks at Das Foods think differently than I do.

I was supposed to receive a shipment from them, but for some reason it never arrived at my doorstep, but as luck would have it, they were attending the All Candy Expo, which provided me an opportunity to pick up some samples on site.

It was hard to miss to the Das Foods booth; they hired four dancers from UIUC to perform a Das Lolli dance routine and socialize with the attending clientele. Since most of the people attending the convention were males, I suppose their ploy worked, as there was always a crowd at their booth.

Even the packaging (think something circular within a square, plastic wrapper that isn’t candy) or the taglines of “What’s your flava?” and “Shamefully delicious lollipops” are begging for an adult audience, which is odd given the premise that these are all natural lollipops made without preservatives, HFC, and chemical additives. Seems like a good thing to give your kids, but I’m not sure how you explain what exactly “Man Bait” is supposed to mean…

Candy Review: Banana Tootsie Pops

Banana Tootsie Pop

Since joining the Candy Addict staff, I have found my usual proclivities for candy changing. One such change has been an added addiction to lollipops. I typically find myself inundated with so many candies that it’s nice to retreat to a lollipop, a candy that is small, filling, and pleasant if only for the fact that your hands can’t get sticky or gooey from consuming it.

At the All Candy Expo, there was an assortment of lollipops to sample, but one piqued my interest more than any other: the new Banana Tootsie Pop. I have long been a fan of Tootsie Pops, and banana seemed like a great flavor. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate/mockolate and banana together?

So I grabbed a handful of the suckers each of the three days knowing that not only I, but also many of my friends would be delighted to see what the folks at Tootsie had whipped up for us.

Candy Review: Lollipop Labs Lollipops

Lollipop Labs Logo

I had the pleasure of reviewing some of Lollipop Labs unusual lollipops this weekend. Given that they have flavors like “Dirty Martini” and “Earl Grey,” I would recommend these lollies more for the discerning Candy Addict than for, say, your five year old.

A couple of general notes: these lollipops don’t have a lot of scent when you open them, but don’t let that fool you. As soon as you lick them you get plenty of flavor. I thought one of the coolest things about them was the way the flavor nuances change as you eat them. Sometimes you’ll get more of one herb than another as you go, while still enjoying the overall main flavor of the lollipop. Neat! Plus, I love that I recognize and can pronounce every ingredient on the labels.

One more thing: if you don’t see a flavor below that appeals to you, Lollipop Labs will custom design the flavor and shape of their lollipops to your specifications. How cool is that?
