Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Blue Raspberry Chew Bar

Courtesy of the All Candy Expo, I was able to try two of the Nuclear Sludge Chew Bars from Toxic Waste: the blue raspberry and the sour apple.

Blue Raspberry: I’m a Candy Addict who loves sour things and I’m telling you woohoo is this sour! The blue raspberry flavor started out really sour and just got more sour as I chewed. By the time I’d chewed enough to swallow, my eyes were watering. The flavor reminds me of a sour version of those blue Popsicles. Unfortunately, the first chew ended with a bit of a bitter taste and subsequent bites got progressively more bitter. I’d have liked it more if it just stuck with the sour. The texture was moderately chewy, taking a long time to chew any given bite.

Candy Review: Toxic Waste Hi-Voltage Bubble Gum

Toxic Waste Bubble Gum

The Earth’s environment is crumbling around us. Actually, it has been for some time. Most of us would like to protect our planet. After all, as wonderful and convenient as the digital world is, most of us would like to introduce our kids to a non-virtual reality.

But without being a scientist, or being independently wealthy, what’s a person to do? Well, you can recycle, but Candy Dynamics has cooked up an alternative that’s far more fun. Now, you can help the Earth by eating toxic waste!

Yes, you read right! Toxic Waste candies are whacked-out novelties with a mission. With each purchase of a Toxic Waste product, a share of the profits are donated to an environmental protection group. The theme is cute, if slightly creepy.

Aside from a heaping helping of sour, I didn’t really know what to expect when a large box from Candy Dynamics arrived at my door last week. I like jelly belly sours, sour gummi belts, and IceBreakers Sours, but I’m not much of a Crybaby fan. Aside from Trident “Sour Strawberry” gum, I didn’t really have any experience with gums in the sour canon. The packing list described the gum as “Hi-Voltage”. I wondered what I was in for.

Candy Review: Toxic Waste Sour Candy Spray

Toxic Waste Sour Spray Candy

Yes, Candy Addict readers, it’s yet another attempt to find a sour candy which is sour enough for me! Toxic Waste Sour Candy Spray comes in a handy purse-pack size, and is topped with one of three removable plastic fingerpuppets: an adorable plastic mushroom cloud (aka Mr. Toxie Head aka Professor Sauernoggin), an evil scientist, or an evil rat. I was lucky enough to sample the green apple flavor (usually a good choice for sourness) thanks to Brian’s haul at the All Candy Expo. Toxic Waste sprays also come in Blue Raspberry, Cherry and Strawberry.

Candy Dynamics rate this candy as “extreme” which, after several single-pump sprays, made me wonder if my taste buds aren’t dead. Don’t get me wrong, the spray is definitely sour. Just not all that sour. There is an initial burst of sourness, and a definite green apple flavor when you first spray it. The flavor dissipates after about 5 seconds, leaving a bit of an aftertaste.

I ended up experimenting with different numbers of sprays (2, 5, 10) to see if it made any difference to the experience and it definitely does. Five sprays is seriously sour, and ten sprays is… well… extreme! This is probably due to the concentration of candy in your mouth at one time.

Overall, a pleasantly sour experience. I don’t know that I’d run out and buy one of these candy sprays, but that’s mostly because my son took one look at me spraying this stuff in my mouth and said, “Ummm, Mom? What the heck are you doing?” So while the sour quotient on this is high, the cool factor (for a 30-something) is a bit low. Of course, he then demanded to have a spray… and one spray for him was definitely extreme. Clearly, he’s got a lot to learn about the pursuit of sourness!

toxic waste candy

We have another guest candy review today. This time it’s from my buddy Aaron from The Sitter Downers Podcast and from his High Caliber Guns blog. Aaron is reviewing Toxic Waste candy:

My wife loves to watch my facial reactions to sour candy. In our almost 10 years of marriage she has subjected me to dozens of sour candy concoctions with the sole purpose of seeing the sour-induced agony on my ugly puss. Well, she has reached a new level of torture with Toxic Waste Hazardously Sour Candy.

Over the Easter holiday someone left an Easter basket of goodies for my wife and her co-workers in the break area. In that basket was a drum of Toxic Waste. Of course my wife couldn’t pass up another chance to subject my facial muscles to an extreme workout. She brought home one for each of us, sans herself…go figure, and presented them to me and the boys after dinner. Needless to say, I was the first victim.

I chose watermelon thinking it couldn’t be all that bad, at least not as bad as say, lemon. How can I put this? I was wrong. Toxic Waste is bar none, the most sour candy I have ever put in my mouth. My wife didn’t tell me that you must keep the candy in your mouth for a full sixty seconds if you wish to be counted among the few, the proud, a “Full Toxic Head”. I failed the test and had the candy out of my mouth within about 30 seconds, entitling me only to “Cry Baby” status according to the drum the candy came in.

Not wishing to remain a loser after she filled me in on my Toxic Waste status, I put the candy back in my mouth and was pleased to find that the candy mellowed out into a very tasty watermelon. My false sense of security was soon destroyed when I found out through experience that Toxic Waste candy is the only sour candy on the market that has a “surprise” sour center. What can I say, I love this stuff!

While the candy comes in five flavors: apple, watermelon, lemon, blue raspberry, and black cherry, I have only tried watermelon and lemon. I am proud to say that I was able to withstand the entire test with my lemon Toxic Waste and earned the official title of “Full Toxic Head”. That’s good right?

Great review – thanks, Aaron! If you too want to write a guest review/article for Candy Addict (and get a link to your site), just drop me a note and we’ll see about getting you published on Candy Addict!
