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.

Snickers Xtreme, the limited edition version of Snickers without the nougat returns in September. If you liked the Milky Way Simply Caramel but thought it could use some nuts, this is the bar for you. (Original review here.)

A mystery bar. I took the photos last year and I don’t think I ever ate it besides a bite at the time I took the photos. (If I go back to my original photos, I can probably find one of the wrapper ... but sometimes I take photos of the wrapper separately.)

Root Beer is one of those strange American flavors. Part licorice and sassafras and part wintergreen - it tastes like a muscle rub smells. These bonbons look like little barrels.

These are anise squares, hard candy flavored with anise and licorice. Sweet and spicy.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
