Sometimes, we like to mix it up at Candy Addict and today is one of those occasions! It’s Haiku candy review time! You may have read some of our past Haiku reviews. They were well received so we’re doing it again! Today, we’ll be reviewing Sulpice Chocolat’s milk and dark chocolate bars. Each designer bar is hand-painted and combines a medley of chocolate, herbs, and spices. Without further ado…

Candy Review: Sweet Candy taffy

 Sweet Candy taffy

I grew up near the East coast and made my fair share of trips to the beach as a youngster. One of my favorite spots was a local and popular restaurant, the Sanitary Fish Market. What could possibly make a kid actually request to go to a seafood restaurant? Salt water taffy can. Oh, the joy of sticky, sweet goodness. Sure, we were able to watch taffy being made at the State Fair, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the taffy from Sanitary Fish Market. That was the best taffy my 14 year-old self had ever had.

I grew out of taffy as an adult… or so I had thought.

Candy Review: DeFranco’s Espresso Secrets

DeFranco's Espresso Secrets

Tired of drinking your morning coffee? Why not eat it, surrounded by chocolate? That’s one idea for enjoying DeFranco’s Espresso Secrets, anyway. And wouldn’t that be faster, tastier, and reduce your chance of getting burned? Of course it would. And if you put a crazy amount of sugar in your coffee (like, 14g), then it’d be about the same calories, too (160). Okay, enough numbers.

Almost. This 1.3 oz/36g package contains three good-bite-sized pieces of 55% dark chocolate, with a coffee center. If you want a caffeine kick, you better eat all three. But how’s this candy taste?

Candy Review: Jitterbeans (aka Crackheads Squared) Plus Giveaway

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Candy with Caffeine,Chocolate Candy,Energy Candy,Oddly-Named Candy


For those of us who can’t function in the morning without at least two cups of coffee, (or, in my case, a giant Red Bull), the idea of a product that promises the awesomeness of candy plus the benefits of caffeine is hard to beat. And for hardcore caffeinated Candy Addicts, Jitterbeans (or Crackheads Squared) are a dream come true.

I first came across the original Crackheads at last year’s All Candy Expo. The name alone had caused quite a stir, as you can imagine, but as Brian noted in his review of the original Crackheads, it was the addition of white chocolate that really set Crackheads apart from other chocolate covered espresso beans. What I like about the original Crackheads is the sweetness of the chocolate; both the dark and white chocolate used provide a soft, sugary shell for the bitter, crunchy bean within, creating a nice balance of tastes and textures.

Crackheads Squared, or Jitterbeans, as they are alternately known, amp up the taste, texture, and caffeine levels of the original Crackheads. One box of Jitterbeans has 600mg of caffeine – that’s more than 11 colas, 7.5 Red Bulls, or 6 cups of coffee. In other words, you might not want to eat an entire box at once, lest you end up like Jessie Spano on Saved by the Bell.

Candy Review: Ritter Sport – Espresso Crunch

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Foreign (non-US) Candy

Limited Edition Ritter Sport Espresso Crunch

Made by Ritter Sport, who also make the Blood Orange Yogurt Chocolate I reviewed recently, this candy again comes from a friend traveling in Europe, and it has a special “Sports Fan” motif to the packaging, since it’s a limited edition for The World Cup only. The other two Limited Edition World Cup flavors are Golden Peanut and Sunny Crisp (sunflower seeds and corn flakes).

I’ve always said that I hated anything coffee flavored, but this is the second coffee candy I’ve had in recent weeks (here is the other) that I thought was excellent. The chocolate in this candy is soooooo good. It’s amazingly soft but not in a ‘melted’ sort of way, it’s just..soft and delicious. The coffee flavoring is definitely there, but it’s not overpowering at all. If you like coffee, or you just like good chocolate, I suggest you pick one of these up if you can find them.

Just like the Ritter Sport Blood Orange I reviewed, this candy is a layer of chocolate, a layer of filling and then another layer of chocolate on top. It also has a small amount of “crunch” in it, as I believe most, if not all, Ritter Sport bars in this line do. It also comes in the same type of resealable packaging, which is a great idea.

This candy is not easily available in America, and to make it even worse, it’s a limited edition flavor made specifically for Germany during the the World Cup. I recently heard about a store local to me that carries a bunch of the European Ritter Sport candy, and if they do, you can guarantee there will be more reviews coming up.
