Candy Teases - New Products

I don’t usually do new product announcements, I like to have the candy in my hot little hands, photograph it, taste it, describe it and of course post as much info as possible ... you know, as part of my relentless public service.

But sometimes I really just wanna share my excitement about new products coming up.

Here are a few new products I know are going to be coming out soon:

imageName: Twix Limited Edition Java Bar
Brand: Mars
Description: This exciting limited edition will feature coffee flavored caramel paired with irresistible chocolate cookie and covered in delicious TWIX(r) chocolate.
Release Date: December 2007
Notes: Coffee flavored caramel with real espresso bean bits? I am so there!
Here’s the review

Name: Pop Rocks Chocolate Bar
Brand: Pop Rocks
Description: Premium milk chocolate with the explosive power of Pop Rocks ... it melts in your mouth and pops on your tongue.
imageRelease Date: 09/01/07
Notes: Pop Rocks came out with a chocolate coated version of the regular Pop Rocks last year.
Here’s the review

Name: PEEPS Peppermint flavored Stars
Brand: Just Born
Description - Peppermint marshmallow stars with shimmering red sparkles
Release Date: Winter Holidays 2007

Here’s the review

imageName: Skittles Chocolate Mix
Brand: Mars
Description: Medley of chocolate inspired flavors, S’mores, Vanilla, Chocolate Caramel, Chocolate Pudding & Brownie Batter
Release Date: Winter 2007 (possibly in fun size for Halloween)
Notes: Sounds rather like the Limited Edition Ice Cream Skittles. All indications are that this is a new and permanent flavor addition.

  2. Yes, the Twix Java does sound very good.  But again, as I’ve said many times, they need to bring back the Cookies and Cream Twix.  That was the shiznit!  Do the young kids still say shiznit?

    As for the Skittles Chocolate Mix, I hope they’re not chewy.  For some reason I think that would be weird.  Chewy chocolate?

  5. I am looking forward to checking out the Pop Rocks Chocolate Bar. I hope its as good or better than the Xploder Bar that Wonka made a few years back and then foolishly discontinued.

  6. I don’t like the chocolate cookie in the current PB Twix. But since I don’t like coffee, I’m not likely to try this new Twix, so I suppose my opinion doesn’t matter for much in this case!

  7. The chewy skittle are wayyyyyyyyyy to sweet… daughter likes the brownie ones and me and my other daughter are not too crazy about them.  I think they should but a little less sugar and add some salt….you know like making Hot Cocoa from scratch??

  8. We found the chocolate Skittles in Florida just last weekend.  They’re, um, different.  I will have to agree with the “way to sweet” ruling.  One quarter of the pack in and I started developing a wicked sugar head-ache and looking around for something salty or leafy-green to eat.  Pity, too.  I had high hopes for them.
