Candy Review: Ococoa Butter Cup Collection

Ococoa Banner

I was recently given the opportunity to try a box of Ococoa’s Butter Cup Collection. I thought I knew chocolate. I thought I knew what flavors go well with chocolate (peanut butter, mint, and Sunkist, to name a few). I thought I knew what to expect from a box of chocolates. Then came Ococoa.

I get a lot of mail and have been receiving two to three packages per week for the last few months. When a box arrived last week, I assumed it was a homeschooling product I was expecting and didn’t bother to look at the return address. I got a knife, sliced the tape on the box, opened the flaps, and said, “I smell chocolate….”

That is a very pleasant, very enticing way to open a package.

Candy Review: Sesame Snaps In Chocolate

Sesame Snaps In Chocolate

“That’s not candy, is it?” This was the response of my family when I told them that I would be reviewing Sesame Snaps In Chocolate for Candy Addict.

“Sure it is,” I argued. “They’re in the peanut brittle family. And besides, these ones are coated in delicious dark chocolate. Real chocolate too, not that fake stuff.”

But I admit, I also had a little trouble getting my head around the idea of Sesame Snaps as candy. As a kid, they were just a thing my mother would give me in my lunch or to keep me quiet on long car rides. They were kind of like fruit snacks – they couldn’t possibly be candy because, obviously, your parents would never pack candy in your lunch every day. Like, duh! Even the new chocolate coating didn’t help. After all, there are lots of things you can coat in chocolate without making them candy. Sardines, for example, or roofing nails.

“We’ll settle this debate with a review,” said I.

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!
