Going to a wedding this month? Jordan Almonds used to be common as a wedding favor. These were pretty cheap ones I got at the drug store with thick shells (box here). They were very crunchy, more like chewing on rocks (which I enjoy).

Some treats are just a combination of existing treats. Take a pretzel stick, roll it in caramel and then dip it in chocolate & drizzle with more chocolate. These are Dip Sticks. (I never reviewed these because I ate them when I had a cold and can only comment on their texture, not the flavor.)

This is a mint bonbon from William Dean Chocolatier. Breeze and fresh tasting.

There’s probably the same number of calories in this handful of candy as an actual cocktail. Of course there’s no alcohol. But you can drive after you’ve had two or three Jelly Belly Cocktail Mixes.

I probably take more photos of Haribo products than I do actually eat them. They make some pretty, pretty candies.

Fennel seeds are often used in candy, especially in the old style of panned mints. They’re used as the starter, a tiny little seed with a bold bite of anise that gets coated dozens of time with sugar syrup until it’s the size of a peanut. In this case they were only lightly candied and made into truffles by Compartes.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
