Eat with your Eyes: Spearmint Starlights

Coastal Bay Starlight Mints Spearmint

Though it’s easy to find starlight mints, they’re not exactly the most desirable candy out there. It’s just a dependable little mint. It’s fun to see them changed up with a slightly different flavor tweak. I’m rather fond of Spearmint Starlights, which actually go with fruit flavors a little better than peppermint ... if you were pairing your hard candies.

Eat with your Eyes: Truffle Disks

Choxie Valentines

There was a time, a few years back, when Target used to have its own brand of chocolate called Choxie. They used a variety of companies to create their custom branded confections, so it turned out a little uneven.

Some of it was good, some of it wasn’t quite as well made. I miss the adventure of such a large new product line, but I think Target does a much better job of curating top brands than creating something from scratch like a whole line of chocolate products.

Eat with your Eyes: Monopoly Gummi Cars

Monopoly 3Dees Cars Gummis

The New York Times had an interesting story about the resurgence of board games. Maybe folks should swap out their Monopoly pieces with gummis, though.

Eat with your Eyes: Dairy Milk Pebbles

Here’s something new I picked up in London that I’ll do a review of shortly: Cadbury Dairy Milk Pebbles.


Cadbury Pebbles

If you tried to flatten out your Cadbury Mini Eggs, they’d be crushed. Somehow Cadbury has magically made them into little skipping stones.

Eat with Your Eyes: Caramel Bar

I’m taking a few days off. I’m on a cookie vacation. (No, that’s not a vacation from cookies, it’s a vacation with lots of cookies.)

Fran's Almond Gold Bar

I’ll be back later this week with more candy, but in the mean time, enjoy this photo of a Fran’s Almond Gold Bar which was “buttery caramel, toasted almonds and dark chocolate.” (Full package photo.)

Eat with your Eyes: Mike and Ike

DSC_2698rb

Jelly beans are quite fun, but the nice thing about Mike and Ike is that they don’t roll around quite as much.

After shooting the latest bunch of boxes, I had a lot of leftovers to munch on. Here are four varieties: Mike and Ike Lemonade Blends, Strawberry Reunion, Lem and Mel and Cherri and Bubb.
