April Search Strings

April was the end of our most recent Candy Season. I hope everyone has stocked up on excellent candy for the rest of the summer.

Here’s what brought many new readers to Candy Blog in April:

1. cadbury mini eggs
2. fda chocolate
3. japanese candy
4. marathon candy bar
5. easter candy
6. berries and creme
7. maya gold
8. choxie
9. barnegat candy
10. starburst candy

My Don’t Mess with Our Chocolate post is the first thing that comes up when you googled “fda chocolate” but that only accounts for a small number of folks who have been helping educate themselves and spread the word about the issue. Over 7,000 people have read that post so far.

The other searches are mostly old posts I’ve made, except for the Berries and Creme ... folks really want to see that commercial, I guess. It’s a little startling to see the Barnegat candy on the list. The post I made about Hometown Candy, Jordan Almonds and Barnegat is still seeing a lot of traffic as more and more people are swindled by this dubious webstore.

My predictions for this month include Skittles getting on the list and possibly fair trade.

  1. Cybele, I just finished reading the HC/JC/Barnegat comment thread. It reads like a thriller. And, a pretty good lesson for all of us who like to shop online.

    It also left me with the impression the company may once have been legit, but were always poorly run. (probably as a sideline) It sure sounds that purely a scam now and I wonder what happened. Two people involved share a last name. Does that mean a family business split? I don’t see how they can carry on much longer without being sued (or arrested). After all, hell hath no fury like a bride who didn’t receive her candied wedding almonds…
