Chocolate Candy Review: Mo’s Bacon Bar from Vosges

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Gourmet Candy

vosges_mos_bacon_bar.jpgToday, we have a guest review from Tanna Reynolds reviewing Mo’s Bacon Bar (remember, anyone can guest write for Candy Addict, drop us an email).

If you are fortunate enough to live some 892 steps away from a gourmet chocolate shop like I am, then you would be foolish not to trace that path at least once a week to sample the delicious and sometimes unique candies. I’m no fool, but I’m easily led into temptation by the chocolate’s siren songs. To date, I have sampled my way through 32 varieties of chocolates and returned at least 20 times for chocolate-covered honeycomb, a chocolate with which I am particularly smitten.

On my most recent visit to sample the candy man’s wares (trust me, chocolate is serious business to this shop owner/mad scientist), I found myself both intrigued and repulsed by the sight of a large chocolate bar whose wrapper, adorned with a huge bacon slice and a milk chocolate square, boasted of a most unusual blend of flavors. My search had ended, and $9.00 and some obligatory chocolate talk later, me and Mo’s Bacon Bar were headed for home.

The Midas Touch: Skittles Style!

Categories: Candy,Candy Videos

As kids, we all heard the story of King Midas, the greedy king who wished everything he touched turned to gold. It’s a great fantasy until you find the reality of it all. As a Candy Addict, have you ever had the same dream as King Midas, except with candy?

Well, Skittles has the answer for you. It’s a new twist on King Midas’ tale, except that Tim seems less than pleased with his “Skittles Touch.” The commercial itself is quite dark and you can’t help but feel sorry for the poor guy. I guess there’s really more to life than candy for some people. At least he won’t starve to death, right? Right?

Freeze Dried Ice Cream: Candy or Not?

Astronaut Ice Cream

I’ve long contemplated how, exactly, Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream should be categorized. Is it candy? Or perhaps it’s simply a general-purpose dessert? Is it dairy or not?

Well, I still don’t have an answer to these age-old questions, but my investigations have certainly been tasty. Turns out, I’m one of the few people in the world who likes the stuff. Just as with my licorice adoration, my Freeze Dried Ice Cream addiction is often maligned and only rarely shared with any other member of the human race.

So, what about it? Anyone else like the stuff? Is it candy or not? Leave a comment and tell us what you think!

Candy Review: Monkey Mints and Pirate Mints

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Mint Candy,Novelty Candy,Weird Candy

Monkey Mints
(banana-flavored Monkey Mints)

Along with the Bacon Mints I reviewed earlier this week, I also received two tins of banana-flavored Monkey Mints and two tins of grog-flavored Pirate Mints. Thankfully, the horrid smell of the Bacon Mints didn’t permeate the sealed Monkey Mints and Pirate Mints tins.

Monkey Mints: The first thing that you notice about Monkey Mints is the cool monkey-face-shaped tin. It’s almost worth the cost of the mints just for the cool green tin. Once you actually open the tin, you’ll see 100 round yellow mints. When I first popped one in my mouth, I immediately thought of a banana Runt. After a second, the mint taste came through. Banana and mint isn’t a flavor combination I had ever considered before, but it’s not bad. Neither flavor is overwhelming and they mix rather nicely actually. And seriously – who doesn’t like monkeys?

Pirate Mints
(grog-flavored Pirate Mints)

Pirate Mints: The Pirate Mints say they are “Grog Flavored”. I had heard the word “grog” bandied about in pirate movies and always thought it meant beer. After looking at the ingredients list and Googling the word “grog”, I found out that grog is watered-down rum (the ingredients list says they contain “rum flavor”). The “mints” taste like a tropical (rum) drink and don’t have any actual mint taste to them all. I suppose they are called “mints” because they look like mints, have the texture of mints, and come in a mint tin. They taste pretty good – like a rum-flavored candy. It’s not a taste I can see myself ever craving after this tin is finished though.

So, both the Monkey Mints and the Pirate Mints are good, but nothing special. They’re really better as a novelty candy/tin than they are great-tasting. At least they don’t taste like bacon.

Skittles Singing Opera Rabbit Commercial

Categories: Candy,Candy Videos,Soft Candy

I could barely stay on the couch when I first saw the Skittles rabbit commercial on TV, and now I can play it over and over again on YouTube. I have two rabbits—Cletus and Abner—but neither of them sing, unlike the Skittles rabbit, who makes an oddly pleasant, incessant, howl-like opera sound. I liked the clucking Cadbury bunny, but the Skittles critter is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

Add this to the list of other weird Skittles commercials and you have some seriously entertaining (but seriously odd) candy commercials.
