Candy Tease: Edition Five

Here are some new candies that will be hitting store shelves soon:

imageName: Jones Carbonated Sours
Brand: Big Sky Brands/Jones Soda
Release Date: out now
Description: Spiked Punch, Limes with Orange, and Electric Lemonade flavors are offered.
Notes: Like the Jones Soda program where customers can submit photos to appear on the labels, sour fans are encouraged to send in pictures of themselves making a sour face ... and maybe end up on a future tin.

Name: Revved-Up Cinnamon Mentos
Brand: Mentos (Perfetti Van Melle USA)
Description: The bold flavor of Mentos Cinnamon is getting even bolder. And Perfetti Van Melle, maker of Mentos, has redesigned the product’s packaging to let consumers know just that. Package graphics for Mentos Cinnamon roll candy now depicts red-hot flames so consumers will be clear on the fact that they’re in for a hotter treat than ever before. 
Notes: I have nothing against the idea of a flaming hot cinnamon chew, but Mentos has chosen to introduce this instead of devoting more resources to support the European version of Pink Grapefruit Mentos, which are now discontinued.

imageName: Wiley Wallaby Australian-style Licorice
Brand: Kenny’s Licorice
Description:  Soft-chewing gourmet licorice, available in four flavors—red, black, watermelon and green apple—the product packs in 10-ounce stand-up reclosable metallized bags.
Notes: There’s a lot of Australian licorice out there, I have my doubts they can distinguish themselves from all those other companies.

Name:Ritter Sport Peppermint
Brand: Ritter Sport
Description: Known as Pfefferminz in Germany, this bar is not usually available in the USA. Will make a limited appearance for the holidays in 2008.
Notes: The German Ritter Sport site is just fun to play with, even if you don’t speak German.
