Field Trip

Candy Blog hit the road yesterday to visit Candy Warehouse in Irwindale, CA. The president and founder of the company, Chris, gave me the full tour of their facility and has entrusted me with tasty samples to review in future blog entries.

So, look forward to the following: Trolli Gummi Clown Fish, a lollipop bouquet, gummi and candy sushi, finger lites (a lollipop candy that flashes), pop rocks dips, craniyums pops, chocolate poker chips and mint truffle chocolate cards, Wonka’s new Oompas, gummi sharks and hot peppers (they’re really hot) ... gah! That’s it. I’ve take photos and now I’m going to have to start tasting. I can say already that there’s some great stuff in here.

  1. They have Look bars!

    I haven’t had those since high school! They were my favorite!

    Also…IBC root beer barrels. I wonder how those differ from the A&W ones…

    You’re right: there’s some great stuff there.

    Joz, candy sushi is just the cutest thing ever and it tastes great too!

    Crispin ... if there’s anything you wanna try, just let me know and I’ll hook you up.

    Michelle ... hmm, interns. I think I like this idea! Ooh, and you’re local too!

    Leeloreya, don’t remind me about the dentist, ugh. But, happily I finally have dental coverage at work (which I haven’t had for about 6 years).

    Russ, I have no idea about the differences in root beer barrels, but I think I might need to do a special head-to-head tasting of all known root beer barrels. I’m also planning this for gummi bears.

  7. For those of you who like Gummi Bears check out this 13lb one…I don’t think I would take a bite but they get 10 points for inventiveness.

    Please help a licorice freak.
