In the previous 365 days:
● 437 posts (wow, that sounds like a lot of candy)
So what were my favorite things from this year?
● Pink Grapefruit Mentos - the most beautiful and tasty Mentos ever, don’t waste them on any soda fountains
I also had some amazing experiences, ones I probably wouldn’t have had if not for Candy Blog:
It wasn’t all happiness:
● One of my favorite candies of all time was discontinued: Reed’s Cinnamon, Butter Rum & Root Beer rolls
I got you talking, too:
● Beware of internet stores that take your money and don’t send you candy
● I tried some of the best chocolatiers in New York City and explored some other candy shops as well
If 2005 was the year I was on the radio, 2006 has to be the year of multi-media coverage:
● I was interviewed for The New York Times Magazine
Of course things weren’t just happening here on Candy Blog ... here’s a round up of other candy news from my fellow sweet bloggers:
SugarHog reviewed just about every Hershey’s Kiss on the market ... David Lebovitz had a sweet year and took us behind the scenes of some great chocolatiers and confectioners ... CandyAddict added new writers, making it a group blog ... SugarSavvy.net transitioned leadership and added writers as well ... The Girl Who Ate Everything sampled Max Brenner ... If I were to start making candy again, this is what I’m gonna make: Cocoa Nib Caramel & Almond Butter Nougat Bars from Habeas Brulee ... William at Chocolate Obsession drank a lot of hot chocolate ... Slashfood seems to spend as much time talking about candy as I do ... and the latest breaking news about Noka in Dallas ... finally, you can keep up on everything in one place with Candy.Digesty.com
