Canadian Candy… or is it gum?! *trumpet sounds*Razzles were originally introduced in 1966, with the advertising slogan and jingle of, “First it’s a candy, then it’s a gum. Little round Razzles are so much fun.” The only flavour back then was raspberry. In 1986 Razzles were brought acquired by Concord Confectionios Ltd. Artificially flavoured they now come in a variety of flavours including grape and lemon. Razzles have other flavour combinations (Tropical and Sour). Continue reading
Cadbury’s the famous chocolate from Bournville, Birmingham UK has teamed up with Oreo Cookies from American Nabisco division of Mondelēz International to create a mix up. Creamy half and a glass of pure cadbury chocolate with a milky creme inside incasing the Oreo cookie pieces.
The wrapper was easy to open from the back. Whilst open a strong sweet smell came from the inside, almost like white chocolate. On first bite you get a good crunch from the Oreo cookies, however their flavour is lost. You do get a good burst of flavour from the chocolate and the smooth milky creme on the inside, however n swallowing the chocolate a strong sweet aftertaste hits the back of your throat. If you let the chocolate slowly melt then chew the remains, you do get the famous Oreo flavour that many people know and love.
If you like Cadbury and like Oreos this is the bar for you. Candy Crash thought it was quite sweet and the lab rats who were researching this bar could only had 2 – 3 pieces each as they had enough of the sweetness. One for the sweet tooth candy lover.
AH yes! Milka with their iconic purple and white cow and milky chocolate from the Swiss. Famous for their chocolate and now even more known for their wacky combinations, whether it’s crackers and chocolate or raisins and cornflakes. I accidentally picked up,taste and review the cornflake and raisin selection. Skeptical at first as the thought of chocolate and raisins makes me run in the other direction, but I just took a deep breath and… yeah, OK! I admit… I didn’t read the label, I saw “cornflakes” and took it. I regret nothing… the balance of chocolate, cornflakes and raisins is complete heaven. Though some clusters have more raisins where others have none. They still tasted pretty good which each morsel.
A chewy texture with a crunch to it makes it fulfilling as it gives you the feeling that you are indeed having a hearty chocolatey snack. The chocolate flavor proves a good strength whilst chewing as the raisins add more after the chocolate has melted. If you are a fan of raisins, this is the snack for you! Although the bag looks small in comparison to other share bags, beware! these shouldn’t be eaten in one go as I tried and now suffer the infamous belly ache. This snack can only be found mostly around Central, East Europe and South America I do reccomend giving it a taste if you get the opportunity. If not, then I wouldnt recommend it, you’d be better off with a tasty a caramel chocolate Milka bar.
These were the opinions of Candy Crash Test lab rat Cyanide, if you have any of your own to share, Don’t be shy and comment below!
“Nobody called me moon pie but Mee-maw,” Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper, Season 2, Episode 17
Moon Pie is the original marshmallow sandwich since 1917. Made in Tennessee from the Chattanooga Bakery. It consists of two round graham crackers, with marshmallow filling dipped in chocolate or a flavoured covering. You can get them in mini version and also double decker versions. Usual flavourings are banana, strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. The double decker variety consists of another layer of cracker and marshmellow filling and also comes in two other flavours, lemon and orange.
Snickers Almond has a milder taste to the original Snickers bar made in the UK from Mars. It has the same concept with the nougat, caramel which are encased in chocolate except instead of peanuts it’s almonds inside the caramel.
The bar has a milky flavour and has a smoother texture on the tongue. A lighter, delicate snickers bar for the candy lover. Great alternative to the original.
Vanilla flavoured marshmallow delights made by Barrett. Eat on their own, part of a dessert, on a cake or melted to create smores, and kebabs. Fat free, unfortunately not vegetarian friendly.
A new candy that I found in Cybercandy from the world of Wonka from Nestle. Kazoozles were introduced in 2009 as a 2 pack but later doubled to 4 chewy ropes. They come in 3 varieties strawberry and watermelon, cherry punch and pink lemonade. Fat free, artificially and naturally flavoured. Kazoozles come in a bright green wrapper with the Wonka logo proudly in the left hand corner.

Made in New Zealand under the Cadbury brand comes a gateau without the cream, portable and fits in your pocket. Cadbury Dairy Milk Black Forest is a milk chocolate bar with dark chocolate biscuit pieces and cherry jelly fruit pieces mixed in. Comes in small snack size or large sharing size bars.
On first impressions, the bar can be recognized as a Cadbury product with the distinct dark and light purple wrapper. Split into 8 bite size pieces they can be easily gobbed up in a single bite. A small smell of artificial fruitiness came from the chocolate as it was being unwrapped, then the familiar glass and a half smell came through and overpowers the previous smell. Continue reading
