Twizzlers Vs. Red Vines
At beginning of each new year, I like to spend some time devoted to thinking “deep thoughts” and pondering important philosophical matters. So my question to you is: Twizzlers or Red Vines?

When I first developed my love of licorice, I was living on the East Coast. I grew up eating Twizzlers. No funky flavors like they have now, mind you, just yummy, plain old strawberry Twizzlers.

Then, I moved to the West Coast. I was a bit perplexed because, at the time, I couldn’t find any Twizzlers. All I could see were these things called Red Vines. I asked a friend where the Twizzlers were, and she was horrified. Our conversation went something like this:

Candy Quickies – three mini reviews and other misc. stuff

Crazy Delicious

  • I tried the Hershey’s Peanut Butter Kisses yesterday. The PB was creamy and tasty, but there was too much of it and not enough chocolate for me. I’d rather have a Cherry Cordial Kiss personally.
  • I had a Hershey’s Twosomes Whoppers a few days ago too. It has “malted crisped rice” in it. I love malted milk balls, but this tasted almost just like a Nestle Crunch to me. It was still pretty good though.
  • I also tried the Choxie Warm Spiced Caramels recently. At first I didn’t like them – too much cinnamon and nutmeg in them – tastes like a gingerbread cookie. The more I ate though, the more I liked them. I’m not sure if I got a bad batch though – about half of them had nice soft caramel inside and the other half were actually a bit crunchy. The soft-centered ones were good.
  • I finished the stale Red Vines yesterday. They sat there as I was working from home and I couldn’t stop eating them. Even stale they are pretty good.
  • My daughter and I finished off a box of Botan Rice Candy the other day too. Of course, there are only 6 pieces in a box, so finishing a box doesn’t take much. Man, I love those. The tattoo looked like a sailor’s tattoo and said “True Love”.
  • Just for fun I made some “motivational posters” based on the SNL Lazy Sunday/Crazy Delicious skit. Grab the full-sized images and print them out to use as cube decorations!

Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious T-Shirt

Crazy Delicious

If you like the SNL skit/rap of Chronic(what?)cles of Narnia as much as I do, you’re appreciate this new T-shirt that says Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious. I don’t think I have ever had Red Vines, but I can appreciate a good SNL skit and a T-shirt that has candy on it. Double True.

UPDATE: I found some Red Vines and reviewed them here.
