Review: Dale and Thomas Popcorn – 6 pack sampler

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy

Dale and Thomas Popcorn

When I arrived home from work a few days ago, I had a giant box waiting for me on the table. It turned out to contain a Dale & Thomas Popcorn sampler. I unpacked the carton, (which included an ice pack to protect the popcorn) and pulled out the inner package wondering what exactly they had sent me. The sampler contained six different varieties of their popcorn and is actually their “Combo Number 1″ (not to be confused with Mambo #5). While we are, in fact, Candy Addict and not Popcorn Addict, it should be noted that these were so far removed from regular popcorn that I would indeed classify them in the candy category.

The flavors they sent me could be broken up into 2 categories: berry-flavored and a variety that they called DrizzleCorn. The berry-flavored ones are coated in a thick berry-flavored candy syrup, while the DrizzleCorn are swirled with their respective “drizzles”.

Sun-Drenched Strawberry

Sun-Drenched Strawberry: The flavored variety of their popcorn is not that different from Caramel coated popcorn, except that they are colored a very deep red, which can be startling at first, if you’re expecting run of the mill popcorn. The kernels aren’t “kind of red” or “light red” they’re very red. The flavor on these, and the other “syrup” flavors is quiet strong. Out of the three, I’d say that Strawberry was my favorite, not overpoweringly strong, but fairly sweet.

Review: Deluxe Dark Chocolate Moose Munch Bar

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy

Harry and David Deluxe Dark Chocolate Moose Munch Bar

How could I resist a candy bar with a wrapper that has a picture of a moose licking its lips?

How do you make a Moose Munch Bar? Start with buttery caramel corn. Fold it with smooth chocolate laced with whole almonds, cashews and toffee bits. Drench it in plenty of sweet dark chocolate. Extravagant? You bet. Try some right now!

Harry and David’s description of their Deluxe Dark Chocolate Moose Munch Bar is accurate—the chocolate was smooth, there was one whole almond, one whole piece of caramel corn, one whole cashew, and lots of toffee. The dark chocolate was sweet but melty and messy. The actual bar rested inside a plastic tray within the wrapper, which nicely protected the candy but also made it appear larger inside the wrapper.

I split the 2oz, 290-calorie Moose Munch Bar with a friend, who said “this might be my new favorite candy bar.” The Moose Munch isn’t my new favorite, but it was very good. I’m still stuck on the delicious standard set by the Marich Chocolate Strawberries that I reviewed in May, and even the decadent Moose Munch Bar couldn’t quite make that grade.

The Moose Munch Bar also comes in Deluxe Milk Chocolate, although I didn’t see one at Target when I picked up my bar for about a dollar.

Before it became a bar, Moose Munch was a mix of nuts, caramel popcorn, and chocolate. Harry and David’s regular Moose Munch is available in a multitude of combinations in their gift towers and baskets, or you can buy it in individual packages.

After gobbling down the bar, I’m definitely ready to try some of the regular Moose Munch. I’m still not sure what the snack has to do with a moose, but I like the moose, and I like the candy, and I’m ready for more.
