Candy Tease: All Candy Expo 2008 #3

imageName: Ice Cream Parlor Mix
Brand: Jelly Belly
Description: Ice Cream Parlor Mix 3.1 oz and 6.5 oz bags - Featuring Cold Stone Creamery’s top signature creations: Chocolate Devotion, Our Strawberry Blonde, Birthday Cake Remix, Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Apple Pie a la Cold Stone.
Release: 3/1/2008
Notes: Jelly Belly was promoting these at the Fancy Food Show, but I didn’t get a sample of them (but I did get a $5 Cold Stone gift card!). Finally I have a bag and will have some notes on those soon. I haven’t tried them all, but I have very little faith in this mix, mostly because I wouldn’t want to combine my apple pie with my mint chocolate chip & strawberry.

Name: Holiday Sugar Babies
Brand: Charms
Description: Same great tasting Sugar Babies presented in red, white & green.
Release: 1/1/2008
Notes: While I wasn’t blown away by the Caramel Apple Sugar Babies, if these are just a candy shell over the Sugar Babies caramel, I might like them. Look for them later this year.

imageName: Brach’s Theater Boxes
Brand: Brach’s (Farley’s & Sathers)
Description: The rich, decadent taste of Brach’s(r) chocolate make their debut in theater boxes. Double Dipped and California Raisins, are joined by new Toffee Crunch, Mint Pearls, and Chocolate Covered Milk-Maid(r) Caramels for today’s grab and go lifestyles.
Release: 5/20/2008
Notes: I might go to the movies more often if I could get some sort of chocolate covered almond toffee crunch at the concession stand.

Name: Sunkist Fruit and Sour Fruit Gummies
Brand: Healthy Food Brands
Description: They are a great-tasting, “better-for-you” fruit gummy candy that has 35% less sugar than the average leading gummy brands and contain 100% RDA of Vitamin C with only 70 calories per serving.
Release: 04/15/08
Notes: These are not to be confused with the current Sunkist Fruit Gems made by Jelly Belly (which are essentially vegan). They have less sugar not just because they’re made with fruit juice, but they’re also made with sorbitol (not as the sole sweetener though).

  1. I am Ben Exworth and I personally can’t wait to

    try the Ice Cream Parlor mix from Jelly Belly.

    especially since they are all new flavours

    and they all come with specks and additional

    colours. Not to mention loads of taste from the

    parts of the ice cream. You will review it

    soon right?

    Just wandering.
