Candy Tease: Edition Four

imageName: Roca Buttercrunch Thins
Brand: Brown & Haley
Description: ROCA(r) Milk Toffee Thins take a slender baton of our delicious toffee and enrobe it with velvety milk chocolate. ROCA(r) Dark Toffee Thins coat our distinctive toffee with 60% cacao chocolate from West Africa. The ROCA(r) Dark Truffle Thins take the same West African chocolate and pair it with a bold dark truffle filling made with California almonds and ROCA(r) Buttercrunch Toffee bits. The final entry is our ROCA(r) Caramel Truffle Thins made with French caramel, California almonds, and ROCA(r) Buttercrunch Toffee bits.
Release Date: 4/7/2008
Notes: One of my big complaints with Almond Roca has always been with the fact that they use mockolate. This sounds like a great combo of toffee and real chocolate.

Name: Dots Elements
Brand: Tootsie
Description: Smooth mellow coating over tasty flavored centers. Fire=Cinnamon, Water=Green Tea, Earth=Pomegranate, Air=Wintergreen
Release Date: unknown
Notes: Of all the Tootsie products, Dots are not exactly the ones that I thought would go with the whole Gaia thing.

imageName: Peeps Joy
Brand: Just Born
Description: Peeps form the words JOY in white marshmallow letters with gold sparkling candy flecks.
Release Date: 10/31/008
Notes: While I think this is a cool idea, part of me is disappointed that there aren’t more letters so that we can go around making foul words with Peeps. But the most interesting product in development is a vague mention of “Chocolate Mousse Bears & Chocolate Mousse Bunnies” for 2009.

  1. Those DOTS Elements sound very, very strange…

  2. Dots sound odd, whereas those thins sound great.

    I would be ALL OVER packages of alphapeeps. I would send messages in peep-style.

  3. I saw the DOTS Elements on sale at Safeway today (in WA state).  They were $1.49 a box and had all four flavors.
