I’m not really a huge fan of fruity sweets and when I think of candy, I think of chocolate. So, after I devoured and finished up the review of Wonka Exceptionals chocolate bars, I turned to the Fruit Marvels and Fruit Jellies. I can definitely say they are unlike anything else I’ve ever eaten.

In case you hadn’t heard, the new Star Trek movie is coming out today, and I am one Candy Addict who just can’t wait to see it. I’m not only a Candy Addict, but a geek too! Star Trek is a huge licensing/merchandising opportunity for products (like Star Trek t-shirts) and candy is even joining the fray too.

We wrote about some Star Trek gummies a little while back and the Limited Edition Star Trek Pez is already out and now we find out about more Star Trek candy: Star Trek USS Enterprise Gummi Candy.

We don’t have too much information about them other than they are $5 for a bag (they better taste good at that price) and the extremely cheesy copy on their website:

Delicious Star Trek Enterprise Gummi Candy. The U.S.S. ENTERPRISE has searched the Galaxy for only the finest ingredients and natural flavors to make these flagship miniatures. These Gummi treats are sure to create a galactic explosion of fruity flavors in the mouths of big and little aliens everywhere!

We’ll get a review posted on Candy Addict if we can get our hands on some.

Retro Candy Flashback: Bridge Mixture

Bridge Mixture

When I was a kid, my candy preferences consisted of the longest-lasting candies I could afford on my meager candy allowance. But when I felt like splurging, that splurge was often Bridge Mixture.

To my childhood self, there was something sophisticated about Bridge Mixture – the mixture of dark and milk chocolate coatings, the way that you never quite knew which filling you were going to get, just like in a “grown-up” box of chocolates, the fact that it was named after a complicated grown-up card game at a time when I only knew how to play Old Maid and Crazy Eights.

Bridge Mixture seems to evoke a love-it-or-hate-it response in people, so I vowed to track down the elusive candy and see if it lived up to my childhood memories. But first, a little background info. Bridge Mixture, for those of you who don’t know, is nothing more than an assortment of chocolate-coated centers – caramel, a selection of fondants, peanuts and raisins, and two flavors of what the Internet calls “Turkish Delight,” but has always seemed to me like a pretty standard jelly. (Note that they have no relation to the Licorice Bridge Mix we’ve previously reviewed.)
