Vuvuzela Balls

Tween sensations Justin Bieber and Brenda Song are set to endorse a new candy from Haribo called Vuvuzela Balls. Now that the news is out of the way… what?! What kind of a name is that? It instinctively makes me uncomfortable. Yes, I know the vuvuzela is the loud horn thing that buzzed throughout the World Cup games, but still. The name is apparently not necessarily “a keeper” (soccer pun, I kill me) and could be changed. From a marketing perspective, I can see how naming the candy after the now popularized horn can be beneficial to Haribo. I don’t even follow soccer, and I knew what it was. Vuvuzela Balls are bound to catch someone’s attention and cause a double-take. But, still. Eh, I’m just not sure I can handle “Would you care for a Vuvuzela ball?” Ok, I wouldn’t talk about it, but I’d eat it.

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.

Mars bars renamed to Believe

Categories: Candy,Candy News,Chocolate Candy

Mars Believe

To show support for the England football team (soccer to us yanks) in the upcoming World Cup, Masterfoods is renaming their Mars bar to “Believe”. This is the first time since it was created in 1920 that the chocolate bar will change. The name will change later this month and will revert back to Mars after the tournament ends in July.

They have created a website to mark this occasion at though the only thing there right now is a countdown to the launch day of Believe. I’d love to have one of these wrappers! (hint, hint)

UPDATE: A kind fellow in the UK has said he has sent me one of the wrappers! Thanks, mate!
