Brilliant Candy Idea - Credit Crunch

creditcrunch225.jpgIf there was ever a timely candy, this is it. With an 800 point drop in the market yesterday, we're all feeling the credit crunch. So why not turn that into an opportunity? This is exactly what Laura Santini has done. Credit Crunch is honeycomb enrobed in chocolate, yummy no matter what you call it. They have milk (40% Cocoa Solids) and dark (66% Cocoa Solids) versions.

Ironically, you'll need a credit card to buy them online, but they're only $3.99 at Chocolate Society so its not too bad...

Space Invaders Gets Its Own Gum for 30th Anniversary

space_invaders_gum.jpgSpace Invaders is 30 years old, which makes me feel awfully old. But to celebrate, Japan's LOTTE candy company recently partnered up with Taito to create a commemorative Space Invaders gum.

Technabob poses a great question:

What flavor is a Space Invader anyhow? I'm thinking maybe some sort of lime, since they're probably filled with green space goo.

Note: Technabob is willing to award $10 to the first person who can get him a pack of this gum. CandySnob will pay $20!

McCain Lollipops - A Sweet 'Ole Sucker for the Republican Convention

As a bi-partisan candy maker (candy knows no political boundaries), Kai's Candy is offering John McCain hard candies and lollipops. Just like the Obama lollies, the McCain candies are made with the traditional Japanese art of kumi ame (rolled candy), which makes each one interesting, fun and unique. Each candy is individually wrapped, and the lollipops come on super long 8" sticks. The flavors are similar to American hard candies, but with a more mild flavor.

Obama Candies - A Sweet Way to Celebrate the Democratic Convention

Happy First Day of the Democratic National Convention!

It is easy to slap an Obama wrapper on a regular old piece of chocolate or candy. What's not as easy is to make a really original, unique, collectible piece of candy to celebrate the new face of the Democrat Party's nominee. But that's exactly what Kai's Candy has done with its Obama lollipops and hard candies. They are made with the traditional Japanese art of kumi ame (rolled candy), which gives each piece its own nuances and uniqueness. The flavors are similar to American hard candies, but with a more mild flavor. The small candies are mint flavored.

Comedy Central's Indecision 2008 Blog
said it best...
"Now you can satisfy your [Obama] lust by wrapping your hands around the big B.O. and licking his sweet face... his lollipop face, that is."

Jar Jar Binks Lollipop - When good licensing goes bad

jar jar lolly.pngYep, its true. There was, in fact, a Jar Jar Binks lollipop released back when Star Wars Episode 1 came out. Pretty weird, and a little creepy. Who the heck wants to French kiss Jar Jar??? No wonder it didn't sell very well.

Check out some of the other cool Star Wars licensed stuff in this WIRED video:

Caffeinated Candy Week - Javapops

java_pops.jpgJavapops come in 5 coffee flavors - French Vanilla, Chocolate Almond, Irish Crème, Cappuccino, and Chocolate Raspberry - these suckers are for adults.

They're larger than normal pops, and have 60mg of caffeine.

A little tip, use the wooden stick to swirl yoru Javapop in your regular liquid coffee. Because 60 mg certainly isn't enough, you need a regular cup of joe too.

Javapops are available at Think Geek's Caffeine section.

Toxic Waste Candy Sponsors a Cleaner Planet

drumdisplay.jpgIf you like sour candy, you might be interested in Toxic Waste's "Hazardously Sour Candy." The problem is that while you are enjoying your mouth-puckering goodness, your conscience may be saying "How can I be taking part in a candy whose name evoked anti-environmentalism? Al Gore will never speak to me again!"

Have no fear, Toxic Waste candy is bad for the environment in name only. You merely have to go to their Environmental page to see that they believe in a cleaner planet.

So pucker away, guilt free!
